Frequently Asked Questions

The program has been loaded but nothing is moving. What did I do wrong?
The game was created in the format of a search for hidden objects with quest elements. The player needs to click on different parts of the image to enable a hidden function or to open a specific sublevel.
Of the mobile applications, only the 1st part is now available and only on IOS. Are you planning to create mobile applications for the next parts on other platforms (including Android)?
Yes, we are working on it. Unfortunately, porting subsequent levels of the program to new platforms is a very laborious and expensive process. In the near future we will start a kickstarter project to raise funds for these purposes. You can register and get an exclusive discount if you support us! (link to landing page)
I downloaded the app to my iPhone / iPad, but the sound doesn't work.
Please disable the "MUTE" function through the menu in "Settings".
I went through the warm-up levels but can't get into IntelliGym.
Most likely you missed one of the mini-games at the warm-up level. Go to the map through the icon in the upper right corner. The minigame you missed is displayed in black and white. Complete all mini-games on the map (preferably in order) and return to the IntelliGym entrance.

What is Fritz & Chesster?

Fritz and Chesster is a series of introductory chess programs based on the Fritz engine.
About the Program
The first desktop version of Fritz & Chesster with the original name Fritz & Fertig was released in 2002 in Germany. It has won numerous international awards in the category “Best Children's Learning Software”.
About Us
We are happy parents of children, who became interested in chess thanks to the "F&C” program. We are enthusiasts, who consider chess to be a wonderful game that has a very significant impact on the intellectual and psychological development of children, and who consider the F&C program the best in the world in the segment of educational games. Realizing that the existing version of the program on DVD discs cannot be used by many users (since drives are no longer installed in computers), we decided to do our best to update the program and to make it available for new generations of children.
Benefits for Children
The app will reveal and develop your child's talents. The principle of Fritz & Chesster is that you can fire up the program and then leave a child alone with it if necessary. After a few weeks they will have learnd all the rules - we are talking about pawn moves, castling rules, promotion, mate, stalemate, everything - and even understand a bit about strategy and tactics.

"I want more! Works exactly like the PC version I had for my kids. Perfect for children starting to learn how to play chess. One problem remains: WHEN IS FRITZ AND CHESSTER 2 being released?!? My son is done and wants more!"
"Awesome I had Fritz and Chester pt. II when I was younger as a computer game and I loved it, I really hope y’all come out with chess in the black castle on the App Store bc I would love to play it. This game settled my desire to play the second one for a little tho"
"Excellent game for young players! We have had this game for less than a week, and like a previous review, my 8 year-old daughter absolutely loves it. The school my daughter is attending this fall requires all of the children to play chess for 30 minutes or so prior to instruction. I was a little nervous of how to possibly teach her, since I have only played sparingly throughout my life. I know the basic moves, and not much more. Not ever touching a chess piece before, she learned all of the basics of the game in less than 2 days. She played for several hours at a time, and it was hard to get her off the computer."

"Great Program that could use an update. The program introduces chess in a stepwise fashion within the framework of a story involving protagonists (Fritz, Chesster, and Bianca) and their rival the King Black. At each stage, learning is reinforced with a series of rewards and intermediate goals. These rewards keep children enthusiastic and motivated through what can be a very lengthy learning process."
Super fun and helpful
"Many of the reviews claim to have had a lot of problems. I experienced none of those problems. It’s a great game! I used to play it when I was younger and recently redownloaded it for nostalgic purposes. It’s just like I remembered it! Amazingggg"
Daughter spends quality time
"Daughter spends quality time on this learning software. She learns without realizing she is learning. She has worked her way through parts one thru three. Won a few chess competitions."
