Hi and welcome to my Acid Ape Chess review.
This free app has a very slick and functional interface. Don’t let the title fool you, this app really can do a lot. First you can play chess online with various players on various networks. You can play on the FICS, ICCF and Lichess networks. Finding people to play with was easy and effortless. You get to set the time controls and the ratings range that wish to play against.
The other nice aspect of this app is that you can play against various chess engines. There are a few engines that come with the app and you can add your own as well. One of the unique things about this app is that you can play simultaneously against up to 16 chess engine opponents. I found it quite amusing to play a simultaneous match against various engines.
Acid Ape Chess also supports 960 Chess for online and engine play. In addition, you can start 16 simultaneous 960 matches against the computer as well. I could not have asked more from a chess app. It is so easy to find opponents and fun to play different chess engines with this app. The added 960 chess seems like just a great bonus.
In conclusion, I would definitely recommend this app and mostly because it’s so easy to use and it’s free. If you don’t like it you can always just uninstall it. I think that the developers did an amazing job when they created this app. I might not be the biggest fan of the name but that doesn’t really affect the high quality of this app in any way. Thanks for reading and I hope that you have enjoyed my Acid Ape Chess review. Currently this app is only available on Google Play.
