Diamond Chess at FICS & ICC for iOS

By Michael Adams Free

Developer's Description

Play chess, watch games, or chat on either FICS, Free Internet Chess Server or ICC, the Internet Chess Club. If no account just click the Connect as Guest button and get started playing. We support Dark Mode and have timeseal on FICS. There are no adds and I don't charge.

As of version 1.40 there is an on board multi level chess program that plays chess, chess960 and a few variants. The engine option on the board tab is available on and off line and users don't need internet to use it.

As a guest by moving between ICC and FICS users can experience two different playing pools. Guests on FICS can chat with their opponent, observe high rated games on FICS, and view theirs or other players recent games. On ICC guests can use the Play Bots option to play tactical and endgame bots, play other players, view games that are finished from important relays with Broadcast option, and view their recent games by the open log file option. We also have for everyone some game collections of classic and modern games accessible when going to the Load PGN option.

The Diamond Chess board features engine analysis with one click when observing a chess game or examining one. Diamond also has a load PGN option and logs all played games to PGN. Multiple games can be up at once and users click the next or previous buttons to move between them.

We support both chess and the server's variants such as Crazyhouse, Losers, Atomic Chess, Giveaway or Suicide Chess.

Diamond has an accessible board to use with Voice Over for the visually impaired. With voice over on, if a user taps a square it will speak its contents such as "e4 empty" or "e4 white pawn" and there is a speak move with Voice Over on.

Members can join channels and chat in the Diamond console or if the users is familiar with them issue server commands. For ease of chatting on channels which are numbers like channel 50, a send prefix button can be used to set up the prefix "tell 50" if that's the channel selected so the user need only type their chat line with no command to send it to the right channel.

ICC has free levels and free guest access. FICS is entirely free.
