App Store Description

Halfchess (or mini-chess) is brainy and fast. It is just like chess but played on a smaller board.

This is a game for the speed lovers and the quick thinkers. It can be used for developing skills like — deep thinking or just getting a quick HIIT-workout for your mind. On an average, most games last between 3-5 minutes.


* Play against a human opponent online.
* Play against the computer in beginners and advanced mode.
* Play two player games on the same device.


Halfchess has a new chess piece - "the Crab". It has no known theory and can throw the best chess players off guard. It moves zig-zag, only forward and jumps over friendly pawns or crabs.

If you want to play with crabs against the computer, you will have to buy the advanced mode. However, inviting a friend for a chess duel is free.


Halfchess looks great on mobile screens. If you like big chess boards, you would love Halfchess.
