It’s one of the most popular chess games for Android. Although, when I thought of trying a chess game on Android, I stumbled upon this one first.

Especially relevant, the user interface offered is pretty simple and not distracting. However, as the name suggests, it’s a free version which comes with in-app advertisements.

Fret not, there’s a pro version offered to get rid of the advertisements.

It provides 12 different levels which range from Novice to Expert. You’ll also get a Chess tutor and hence, prompted with recommended moves.

However, this would help a beginner understand the strategies. Furthermore, you can play with your friend as well.

It also offers you to save the game file keeping your progress. It would probably help when you’re moving on to a new device and you don’t want to sign in through the Google account.

In addition, if you are signing in using your Google+ account, it would sync your data. You would be able to track several achievements and ranking as well. However, if you don’t like the default chess board or the chess piece sets, you get the ability to choose from 7-8 varieties.

It’s preferable if you play online when you have a pretty good command over powerful strategies used to win. It’s because you can’t always predict the move of a human player.
