The gameplay is slightly ruined by the ads on the right side of the screen but that has to be expected, as the game is free. The ads can however be removed, for a small fee.

4. The Chess Lv.100
You will find it hard to believe, but The Chess Lv.100 is one hell of a chess game that has 100 difficulty levels! You heard me right, 100! When you launch the app, you will be able to select the gameplay mode and the level. In the above screenshot, I am playing in Normal Mode on level 30. The graphics of the game are pretty neat, giving a 3D feel to the chess board. The game is ad supported, but the separate dedicated section for ads at bottom left ensures that the ads are unobtrusive. You can see hints, change the style of chess board icons, etc. while in the game. The toggles are easily accessible at the right side of the screen, and the smooth experience makes the game a truly neat app!
