Chess Play Area - Section 1 - ChessFlash KnightVision
Glenn Wilson is the developer behind the ChessFlash app, which I've used a fair bit throughout Chess-Game-Strategies.com, so I can display interactive chess positions on this website.

You can see an example of ChessFlash in action, at the top of THIS page.

Anyway, since then, Glenn's been hard at work creating a new training game which aims to help develop a player's ability to quickly visualize the most suitable path to take your knight, in any given position. Glenn calls his app KnightVision.

The Knight is the most difficult chess piece for beginners to learn. Even experienced players may need to ponder to figure out a path that will move the Knight to the desired square.

ChessFlash KnightVision is designed to help chess beginners and advanced players improve their play.

While the focus is on developing your ability to maneuver the Knight, you can also select any one of the other Pieces (Bishop, Rook, Queen, King) and try to play them across the board without getting captured by enemy Pawns.

For an added test, you also have to try and complete the puzzles in a certain amount of time, which is useful for those looking to play in chess tournaments, where games are played against the clock.

KnightVision lets you play through varying levels of difficulty, which includes the addition of more Pawns and a decreasing amount of time in which to solve each puzzle.

If you get stuck, there are on-screen hints, but you can turn these off from the Preferences menu should you want the satisfaction of solving the puzzles yourself. In addition, if you don't want the pressure from the clock, you can set it to "Unlimited mode", which removes the timer.

KnightVision, CNET.com Rating, 5 Stars
KnightVision, CNET.com Rating, 5 Stars, Headline

"KnightVision is a fantastic game, sure to capture the imagination of anyone who has ever obsessed over the game of kings."

"KnightVision is simple. The game starts and you are given a board with one knight and one pawn. Your job is to move the Knight however many times are necessary to take the pawn. At first it seems needlessly simple, but as you progress, there will be more pawns on the board and more complicated procedures to capture them all. With time it becomes quite an engaging puzzler. You can customize your puzzles as well, swapping out your Knight for other pieces like the Queen or Bishop, turning on Zombie mode (new pawns appear on the board as you play) or turning off piece moves and warnings so you have to figure it out on your own."

"The game's design is simple yet elegant..."

"The graphics are slick and bright and the options are accessible and easy to change..."

"If you enjoy chess and puzzle games or simply want to learn more about how each piece works, this is a must-download - especially at a price point of Free."
