Review: Shredder Chess for iPad

Excellent new way to play chess against a chess champion opponent who amends their skill level to match yours after each game.

View on the App Store: Shredder Chess for iPad - Eiko Bleicher, Skizzix.com

Features of Shredder Chess for iPad:

  • Play against Shredder, who adjusts skill level after each game to match yours.
  • Over 1000 chess puzzles to solve, enhance your strategic and problem solving skills.
  • Built in coach will advise you throughout your game, perfect for any aged child or adult interested in improving their game!
  • Highlight legal moves in the settings menu which is very valuable, especially useful to teach chess.
  • See your ratings charted as a graph to evaluate your progress, hopefully!

Choose from a selection of boards and players and a multitude of options in the settings menu to personalise your game! Shredder plays against you based on your skill level, including making typical 'human mistakes' to make your game really challenging!

You can change Shredder's style of play too from passive to aggressive, or can set the game level at one of your choice.

There are over 1000 chess puzzles to solve, enhance your strategic and problem solving skills. The built in coach will advise you throughout your game, perfect for anyone interested in improving their game! Highlight legal moves in the settings menu - great for learning!

Shredder increases or decreases skill level for your next game as well as recording your results on a chart. At the end of each game, if you have not used 'hints' or 'analysis', or 'switch sides' your game will be graded with an ELO point number and charted on your own personal graph. (The higher your number the better you play).

There are 1000 chess puzzles which are great if you want to learn better strategies and individual moves.  These are based on real chess games.  The last move of the game has removed and you are trying to figure out the way to refute it. 

You score points for solving puzzles quickly, you can use hints in exchange for less points, all your puzzle scores are recorded. Puzzles are also great if you don't have time for a full game but fancy a test in strategic skills.
