Free Chess help and info

  • Is Free Chess really free?

    Yes, there are no hidden charges for downloading and using this app. It has no temporary period in which it is free to use and then asks for fees to be paid later. The program remains cost-free to use no matter how many games you play.

  • Is Free Chess compatible with Windows?

    Yes, the app is compatible with PCs running Windows and it will certainly work with machines installed with Windows 10.

  • How many levels does Free Chess have?

    There are seven levels of difficulty to try your hand against using this chess program. This means that both complete novices and intermediate players will find a level of artificial intelligence that suits their abilities. Only grand masters would find it too easy to present a thorough mental challenge.

  • Is there a two player option with Free Chess?

    This program offers you the chance to play someone else if you want. Simply select the 'New Game' option from the main menu and choose the two-player option in order to take turns with a friend.

  • Is Free Chess 2-D only?

    Although the two-dimensional layout of this app is clear and easy to use, many players will prefer to use it in its three-dimensional mode. The chess pieces and board are rendered very well in a three-dimensional model that feels like a real set.

  • Can you save games in Free Chess?

    During any part of a game, you will notice a floppy disc icon on the right-hand side of the board. Just click on this to save your game. You can come back to it later by selecting the 'Load Game' option from the main menu.

  • Can I play against the computer with Free Chess?

    Yes, this app is designed for players who want to be able to take on an opponent even if they don't have a friend to play against. The game's artificial intelligence is quite fiendish but you can adjust the level of difficulty to suit your playing style.

  • Does Free Chess take long to download?

    Given a reasonably fast connection to the internet, this app will not take long to download. The file size is well under 8MB, so it is not that large given the amount of gameplay you can expect from the program.

  • How can I access tutorials in Free Chess?

    This app contains no tutorials at all. It is intuitive to use, so this is not an issue unless you are a complete beginner who needs to understand the rules of chess from scratch in order to play.

  • Can I change the view in Free Chess?

    Yes, you can. As well as being able to switch between the game's two and three-dimensional views, it is possible to reorientate the playing board to suit you. There is a board icon that is inside a red circle when you play. If you click on this, then the playing board will spin around so that you can see the game from a new angle.
