Chess Elite is a brilliant take on the game of chess. There have been dozens of chess apps in the past. Chess apps for beginners, for professionals, some boasted of a strong chess engine, others of amazing graphics.

With Chess Elite, the rules of the game will change. Elite in every sense of the word, once you get the taste of the features we’ve incorporated in it.

Customization is the name of the game. Right from the look and feel of the board to the engine strength, everything is customizable. Regular, Fantasy or Sketchy, you have 9 different themes to choose from to set the tone of the game. In a mood to play a quick game? Choose a lower strength. Feeling charged up? Let the engine dish it out to you. Chess Elite, as we like to call it, is ‘Made to Order’!

Wait… there’s more! We’ve saved the best for last. Challenge is where the real fun lies.

Pass and Play is Passť! Challenge your phonebook contacts to a game and show them what you’ve got. And not just that, we’ve also brought in the added mystery of playing with strangers online.

Let the war begin!

Looks really polished. . I have two other games by 99Games and I like/love those, so I'll keep an eye on this one.

The best part of Chess Elite is that both the player's need not be online at the same time. Your online game status will be updated once the opponent makes a move!
