Instant Chess Screen Saver shows live chess games between humans. The real-time show is provided by the well-known chess playing service InstantChess.com, where you also can play online.
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.
"Great value for the chess enthusiast!"
Very pleasing graphic display, of a very popular game in live action. A fresh new game is randomly selected at the completion of each chess game.
Lacks a display of sponsorship (the label / logo 'instantchess.com' is absent). If the sponsoring site fails due to lack of membership, support for this download will also fail.
"Nice interface, good chess content for a screensaver."
User controlled board color and sound on/off options. Great idea to have live chess content on a screensaver... Guarantees a "fresh" view.
Good for all chess nuts, better than the usual screensaver
slows my computer down a bit
This is for all chess maniacs in all over the world.Perfect design and very innovative screensaver.
