Great Mate Master Chess: A Master in Disguise?

What's the greatest moment in a game of chess? Check mate of course! So how about a game that lets you make check mate in just one move? Say hello to Great Mate Master. In an innovative take on one of the oldest games in history, you can now enjoy the challenge of trying to close out an epic game of chess in a fraction of the time. You'll be presented with endless chess scenarios and have to make check mate within a few, or even one, move!

But don't be put off: it's not like someone just arranged a traditional chessboard and asked you to close out a game that was nearly over. The people behind this have really bent the rules. In some scenarios you'll be trying to close out a game with eight knights at your disposal, or even a handful of bishops and a couple of kings! This really gets the thinking cap going in a way you won't have experienced before. To the chess tradionalist this all might seem a bit sacrilegious but it's truly good fun as well as devilishly difficult.

At first I thought the concept sounded too easy: just find the few moves that would create a check mate. Too simple. That'll be way too easy. It's true that if you play the game on the novice setting then things will be pretty straight forward. But by the time you get to the "fiendish" difficulty level your head will be ready to burst! At the novice level you'll only need to make one move to make check mate but by the top level you'll need to do it in up to 11. Also, there is no cheeky "undo" button. So you won't get the chance to do so. The good news is that with 6 difficulty settings you'll have plenty of opportunity to hone your skills and build up to the harder levels.

With 16,000 scenarios to play you'll be able to work on your game and appreciate the challenge of a brand new style of chess! Great Mate Master certainly creates some crazy game scenarios for you to try and solve that bend the rules of traditional chess but it will definitely leave you thinking "why didn't we try this before?
