Enjoy the Game of the Kings with iChess 3D

The game of chess is a timeless classic. It was invented in the year 1200 but it remains popular to this day. Although there are probably hundreds of chess games on the App Store, very few can offer a striking user interface using an impressive 3D rendering engine. One such app that enjoys this distinction is iChess 3D.

iChess 3D offers everything that you may want in a chess game. For starters, it remains loyal to the game. It retains all basic rules of the game and did not add any superfluous variation.

Most importantly, the app offers jaw-dropping interface that takes advantage of Apple’s excellent 3D display hardware. It gives you a game that is enjoyable mentally and visually.

When you load this app, you will be welcomed by hypnotic background music with a clear calming effect. The home screen is pretty straightforward and clutter-free. It gives you several options whether to play in single mode or in multi-player mode. If you have an open game, there is a resume button that allows you to continue with your games.

The app offers smooth gameplay with responsive screen. You can tap a piece and drag it to a designated square. While some people may prefer the 3D display, the app still gives you the chance to play in 2D top view.
