Online game discovery improved!

Our community is small but growing. In the interest of getting people together for online play, we've made some improvements to the notification system.

If you haven't registered for notifications, what are you waiting for? Don't you want to play online with enthusiastic chess players from all over the world? Go to Notification Center and turn on Warlord Chess now!

Now that we've taken care of that, here's the great news. In the past, when you wanted to play online, you had to sit and wait in the app for people to show up. Not cool, huh? You've got much better things you could be doing while you wait for players to show up. Wait no longer.

Now, when you want to play, just launch the app and join an online game. The Warlord Chess world will be notified that someone is looking to play. You can now quit the app. When others respond to the request and also join an online game (and quit the app if they desire), you will be notified. If 3 players show up, the whole community will again be notified that a 4th is needed... hopefully enticing that final player into the game. When 4 players have joined, the players who have joined will receive a notification asking them to return to the game. Just go back to the app, and again Join Online game. Once everyone returns, your game will start.

We hope this makes it easier for you to discover other players and get those online battles started.


Warlord Chess Free Holiday Update

Warlord Chess gets a free upgrade, just in time for the holidays.

Now there are backgrounds that reflect the landscape of the four kingdoms! Red still battles above a pit of flames, but now blue floats between sea and sky. Green battles upon a field of grass, and purple floats in an ocean of unnatural energy. Games now happen in the kingdom of the player who goes first. Win in an enemy kingdom to see your colors dominate their battlefield. Win in your home kingdom and feel the pride that comes with defending your realm!

Update 1.2.1

Warlord Chess and Warlord Chess Lite have just been updated to version 1.2.1.

This update makes a slight change to the chess engine with respect to diagonal movement through the castle. On previous versions, bishop and queen movement through the castle throne would stop at the throne. New rules allow diagonal movement straight through the castle.

Please note that because of this change, to continue to play online, you will need to be upgraded to version 1.2.1 or better.

Version 1.2.1 also includes performance improvements and is compiled for iOS 6.1.
