With Chess and Checkers being around for thousands of years it only makes sense that we get a decent version for BlackBerry 10 - however, Mine Bass: Chess and Checkers comes with a bit of a twist.

It's not only great to have the two games available in one title but where it gets explosive is that you have to place mines on the board which will destroy whoever lands on them. You have a choice of using between 1-5 mines and just to spice things up even more there are a choice of themes that can be chosen so the boards have some variety.

As well as playing the computer you can also play with a friend which is always fun. The graphics are pretty stunning with Mine Bass and you will notice that at the top right of the screen is a camera tab. Press this once and you get an overview of all the pieces on the board - press it again and it allows you to view the board in any 3D angle you wish, which is a real nice touch and I found that this came in handy when playing chess.

Priced at only $0.99/£0.75 if either of these games are your thing then it will be money well spent.
