Instant Chess Screen Saver

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This no-nonsense screensaver should appeal to its target audience, despite its primitive graphics and small feature set. Instant Chess Screen Saver displays randomly chosen live matches between players on the InstantChess.com Web site. Although that doesn't sound very exciting, the screensaver provides more action than you'd think, as games move at a rapid pace. The graphics are nothing to write home about, although the ticking of the chess clock adds a touch of realism. You can disable the sounds and change the color of the game board, but that's where the customization options end. However, since it is free and doesn't serve up adware, we can recommend this screensaver to hard-core chess enthusiasts.
