App Information

Really Bad Chess is just like chess, but with totally random pieces. Try 8 Knights, 4 Bishops, and 3 pawns — why not? As heard on NPR's Weekend Edition 5 out of 5 Stars "An essential puzzle experience for anyone even remotely interested in strategy games" - TouchArcade Whether you play chess daily, or quit just after learning the rules, this small twist will open the door to an entire new world of chess. ------WHATS IN THE “BOX”? The free version of Really Bad Chess lets you compete vs. an AI in Ranked, Daily, or Weekly Challenges. Improve your skills using the included Freeplay mode. A single in-app purchase unlocks Versus Mode so you can compete against your friends locally! It also removes ads, displays captured pieces, and adds soothing alternate color-palettes to choose from. ------REALLY BAD PRESS "Makes chess fun even if you’re really bad" - The Verge "Feels more modern than chess has ever felt" - Applenapps "Really Bad Chess takes a really bad idea and somehow manages to make it a lot of fun." - Pocket Gamer "Really good fun" - MacLife ------A WORD FROM THE DEVELOPER Chess is one of those games I always wished I enjoyed, but its commitment to beauty, elegance, and perfect balance always turned me away. Really Bad Chess removes these boring restrictions and flips chess on its head. As much as random pieces change the game in some ways, I was really surprised to notice how much the game remains the same, and how powerful some pieces are — you've never truly struggled against a pawn until you've struggled against a pawn in the back row. For chess pros, Really Bad Chess will give you a new type of challenge — the pieces & the moves are the same, but you'll have to throw out your openings and your understanding of normal patterns of play. For novice chess players (like most of us), Really Bad Chess greatly opens up the game. Instead of starting by studying openings, in your first games you'll get to discover the joy (and challenge!) of learning how to checkmate. I hope you have as much fun with Really Bad Chess as much as I did making it. -zach

  • Wait Time
    By Cool guy 739472947928473##

    Every move I make, the opponents move takes 10 extra minutes to complete.

  • Fantastic chess variant!
    By Kaylick_Whiskeyjack

    If you are a chess player I highly recommend this game! Great on it’s own merits and great if you’d like a break from the classical set up.

  • Fun but found a bug
    By Awesomeness595959

    In the middle of a game right now and the AI has frozen. It won’t make a move no matter how much I refresh. There doesn’t seem to be a support/contact email to report this bug either. Would be happy to give 5 stars if this was fixed.

  • Lives up to its name
    By Ur_Hamburgers_gone

    DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME. This game is trash. The computer always gets you in a loop and forces you to surrender very early into the game. It isn’t fair at all and always gives your enemy more powerful pieces than yours. The undo mechanic doesn’t make sense at all and the computer keeps sacrificing pieces for no reason. All and all a terrible game.

  • Great game, really bad ads
    By drChillaxo

    Great idea for a game, but the ads are impossible to close

  • Trash
    By PaulLori

    Doesn’t even follow the rules of chess very bad chess game

  • Fun variant on chess theme
    By Jasd57h

    SUGGESTION FOR DEVELOPER: when a game ends, a barely-translucent overlay appears to tell the user the outcome of the game. Unfortunately, this obscures the user's view of the completed game, making it very difficult to assess the final state of play. This is particularly frustrating when losing, as the AI sometimes sometimes scores a checkmate that the user didn't see coming; being able to see the final state of play clearly would help some users improve. Two possible options: (a) permit the user to return to the final end state view, or (b) make the overlay much more translucent, and move the buttons out of the way.

  • Ok
    By Iravalanche

    When I play and it’s the computers turn, sometimes the blue counter line stops and the computer never makes a move

  • Adverts so bad.
    By AhJeezy

    Also, you get stuck in repeat moves with the computer. Not ideal.

  • Amazing
    By A\ex

    Love the game, it’s a great twist. Leads to some very aggressive openings. XS Max support works great. But please consider a better dark mode.

  • Fun but...
    By PopcornQueen6489

    Super addictive and one of my favorite games, but it is frustrating because if you end in a draw (ex. each person has only their king) then you have to surrender and take the loss because their are no draws called.

  • Cool as heck, but it cheats.
    By OzeroDotCa

    Playing with a pile of bishops queens and whatever assortment is fun, but the king especially is buggy. More than once my best move was for the king to take an opposing piece, but the game wouldn’t allow it, forcing me to come up with a new strategy late in the game resulting in stalemate or loss. Frustrating.
