Checkers board game for iOS and Android

LITE Games launches the classic board game for both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

Hamburg, Dec 10, 2015 — The casual games publisher LITE Games adds yet another board game classic to its portfolio. Checkers fans rejoice!

Checkers is one of the most well-known and popular games of all time, so it’s not surprising that the mobile games publisher, LITE Games from Hamburg, has also added this classic board game to its portfolio. This pocket-sized checkers board will be launched worldwide on 12/10/2015 and can be played on both iOS and Android systems. The simple, basic principle of the game has remained entirely unchanged in this mobile adaptation. However, the free checkers app also will also offer a wide range of customization options.

Players will find it easy to get their bearings in the intuitive app which can be fully customized to suit their preferences. For example, apart from the default "International Checkers" configuration, it is also possible to select other game modes such as English, German, Turkish, or Russian checkers. A quick overview of the rules of checkers even allows beginners to quickly get started playing this highly popular board game.

"With 'Checkers Nr. 1: Checkrs', we wanted to develop the best Android and iOS adaptation of this traditional board game which is why we focused on reproducing an authentic playing experience for the mobile version that is as realistic as possible. Four detailed game boards are available to the player, allowing him to create his own individualized ambiance," comments Christian Twellmann, CEO of LITE Games GmbH.

Naturally, this checkers adaptation also allows for two-player duels. Player can pair up and challenge each other to a round on a single device. Just as in single-player mode, options such as "Time limit", or "Show possible moves" can also be activated in this mode.

- Checkers Nr. 1: Checkrs is completely free to play
- For Android versions 4.1 and up or iOS versions 7 and above
- 38 MB on iOS and 34 MB on Android
- Optimized for phones and tablets (both Android and iOS)
- Available worldwide starting on 12/10/2015 in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
