A simple, elegant and assured game of chess that feels no need to show off. Positively classy.

Deep Green Chess Review

by on August 26, 2011

What really matters in a chess video game? That’s something that Deep Green Chess has got us wondering, and we’ve come to the conclusion that it’s this: the ability to just play a game of chess with the minimum of fuss. We’re not bothered about having a choice of what the board or pieces look like, we don’t care if everything’s rendered up in stunning, textured 3D. All we want is a game of chess, and that’s exactly what Deep Green Chess delivers beautifully.

It presents you with a chess set and a computer opponent and leaves you to get on with it, with the barest of interface clutter. Tap a piece to pick it up and tap a space to put it down on, or just hold and drag it; it’s up to you. Want to take back a move or need you next move suggested? Fine. Change the computer’s difficulty level mid-game? Go ahead. Give up on the game and instead set up a chess puzzle you saw in the paper? Okay! The point is, Deep Green just gets on with it, doesn’t get in your way and will give you a challenging game of chess whatever your skill level. What more do you want?
