Vanaple HK's comments:
Hi,

As is known to all, chess, as the most popular activity next to soccer, is more than a game, but has developed into a time-honored culture-Chess Culture. As a crystallization of wisdom, chess is the integration of complicated tactics, strategies and arts. It never fades away with the time. So in our views, chess game is classic , never out of date and a must-have.

Here we offer our huge improvement-3D Magic Chess HD for you and hope that you could give us some suggestions.

Very cool looking! I wonder if there's any battle animation. I guess for 99 cents, I'll give it a shot.

Edit: played a game, not bad. Colorful, smooth, no crashes (on ipad2 4.3), and battle animations! Only complaint I have is that the game does not recognize a stalemate when there's only 2 kings left. That should be automatic, unless there's actually a way of doing it? Otherwise, cool game, first chess game on my ipad.

Double Edit: And could you shorten the name of the app? It looks kind of weird to see 3D Ma...ss HD

Hi, dude, thx for your suggestion. We really appreciate it. As for the name, '3D Magic Chess' is the name and HD is its version. Weird?

Only weird when you see ellipses in the app name. You could make it 3d chess hd. Keeps all the important aspects. An option to skip the animations is nice for those who don't care for fanciness. I personally like it.

Got the game from a promo code using this promo code: A77MT6N47MLL
Thanks for the code.

I love playing chess and now will love it even more playing on my iPad2. This is so far the best chess game out there for IOS. I love the graphics. Definitely worth buying.

I purchased this. If you like chess it's well worth the 99cents.

It has interesting character design and some nice animation.

I enjoy it more than any other iOS chess game. Especially the extra modes, which add to it's value.

Recommended.

We will start a discussion if it's necessary to add a mode without all animations to focus on serious chess competition and whether the animation is slow for most of people.

BTW:No one is qualified to win codes for now. Will there be no one selected as winners for June 15? Shame!!! http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=97045
