Fun Chess Alternative

This is an cool chess app that’s slowly taking over my life and becoming my #1 way to play.

Still some things to be added and smoothed out, but it’s a way more fun, lighthearted way of playing than other stuffy chess apps.


Cool idea, but really buggy

The game crashed two times before I even made it to my first bot match and I'm pretty sure I missed out on some starter rewards/dialog, but I'm not 100% sure l because one of the crashes was in the middle of some instructional section, which just got skipped when I rebooted KingdomChess . Then after my first match the game crashed again.


Lack of support

I ended up stuck on a puzzle with no solution. I attempted all plausible moves, and found no solution. I then attempted EVERY available move and no solution. I used a power up to tell me the best move, still no solution.
I emailed them with the chess notation and got no assistance beyond an autogenerated email. It was enjoyable for the one day I got to play.


painfully average

terribly boring to get to your own skill level


Chess L

Please make it playable horizontal mode on Ipad, vertical is not fun


Buggy but deserving of our patience

Mission 1-10 has a puzzle that endlessly restarts itself when solved, so I can’t go any further. Also, there are messages that are displayed at the beginning of each mission, but they’re shown so briefly that they can’t be read in time before they’re gone. This is a great game with a lot of potential. It’s new (so there’s bound to be problems) and is really busy with their server upgrades, but I hope these and other bugs are fixed soon.


nice animations

pretty fun


Zero point to this app

Seems like a half finished idea. Crashed on the first move of the first three games. There is zero incentive to move forward or get better, there is no teaching aspect to the game. There is not even a battle chess component which could work well with the art style. This is a step backwards from their other apps, and the idea should be thoughtfully reviewed by the team.


Play Chess with Restrictions

I don’t understand the point of KingdomChess. I have to grind coins to play chess games, but I can already play games with no limits on I don’t get why I would play on KingdomChess instead.


Game Won’t Work

I was actually excited to give this a try since I’m getting into chess, but the VERY first level won’t load for me. I just get this greyed out screen and I can’t move past it. I even tried reinstalling KingdomChess to see if it was a one off. Disappointed recommended this to me



They advertise this like a fun way to play casual chess and then actually tie it to your rating. A warning about that would have been nice. I’m not sure why anyone would play this as is.


Allows illegal chess moves

First of all, it’s impossible to make progress. I have been waiting 2 weeks just to upgrade my castle for the first time, and there is no way of telling how to gain scrolls to upgrade your tower, they just come at random. Secondly, apparently the game lets you make illegal moves, like castling through check. I guess this is why Lichess is better than, because at least they know the rules of the game


Good idea, needs work

I like how you need to unlock bots of increasing difficulty since it actually incentives you improve in order to defeat them. The main criticism is the current form of the Tower: you are required to review your games in order to grind out scrolls to continue leveling up. But, reviewing your games is an entirely disengaged activity. You don’t need to actually find mistakes, etc, so it turns into a tap-to-complete pointless exercise.

Of course I understand the point is to attempt monetizing through gamification, and it’s a fair attempt, but we know 95% of users will never engage with pay-to-play mechanisms, making the artificial barriers to advance the game simply irritating. A quick fix would be to introduce other ways of finding scrolls, or buying them with coins, or awarding them for Great or Brilliant moves.


Fun idea but needs more work

Fun way to play chess and i like the avatar and town building but lacks cheat detection features like the app.


Fun but hard to make progress.

Overall fun game, but annoying to make progress.

Progress is limited mostly by Tower level, which requires opening scrolls.

Scrolls are opened when you analyze a game, which is fine, but the scrolls themselves are very limited.

There’s not a lot of info in app that explains the functionality, but as far as I can tell, the only way to get scrolls is to wait 9+ hours at a time.

That means waiting days at a time before you can upgrade anything else or make any progress in the game.


A must have for beginner chess player

This game comes with many bots to help beginners progress, it also provides free game reviews to help you improve and free puzzles. This is a great game for beginners to learn and grow.


Fun game. Puzzles are annoying

Love the concept and I’m having fun with it. My only quarrel is that the puzzle bosses are harder than they should be. I have spent a week on the same boss and while I have eventually figured out the puzzles, the same puzzles don’t show up when I retry and I feel as though my progress was pointless because now I have to re solve 10 puzzles that are surprisingly difficult. Thanks!


Limited reviews as a diamond member

Reviews in the tower are limited as a diamond member. If we’re diamond we should have the ability to review all our games without the need of a scroll.

Also, there is a delay when starting a game that we are punished for. I lose 3-4 seconds off my clock based on the fact that my UI is loading.

I would like an unrated option, and option to select rating range. I got paired with someone 200 elo above me, where i usually play +/-50.


It’s like chess but worse

Because micro transactions


Fun game!

Like playing chess but with gambling :)


Misses the Mark

Cool concept overall.

Buggy PvP. Lost many games on time due to the game server not updating the opponent’s move. It appears to be their turn, and their time is ticking down, but apparently the server is counting down my time while I am unable to play a move.

Reviewing games is boring. I wish it was the same features as game reviews, especially being able to move forward one half move at a time and see the best moves for each side.


Such a refreshing change of pace from the classic!

This game is very engaging. I’m still confused as to what the missions are and what the strategy is in leveling up and which area do I level up in first but still, I like it.


Keep coming back

Fun to make progress and level up, totally fun without having to spend $$


Can’t login

Can’t login. Horrible interface to link account


Player matchups are screwy

I'm having fun with this but there are some gripes. If you are a lower elo, you can get absolutely trounced in the matchups more often than not. I find myself paired with much higher players. It's also makes me less likely to play against players since I have to bet coins.

The bots can be really hard although I think I'm improving but sometimes the errant knights will demolish me. The puzzle bosses are very difficult especially since there isn't an option for hints (outside of buying them?).

The game says my rating is 1200 and I can't change that? I'm closer to 850.

It will be interesting to see how the game progresses but I find the app more fun and less demoralizing
