Tactics: annihilating the castled king's defences

  • #1

    Hi all, I'm looking for some software or an app that has plenty of tactics practice in checkmating or at least denuding the castled king. This can be 2-4 move shots. I can find plenty of checkmate tactics in an app when the king is in or near the centre of the board or when you are doing back-rank mates, but nothing when you are attacking a castled king from the front when it is behind a wall of pawns.

    Also: Can someone recommend an app or software for 2-3 move tactics, e.g setting up forks and skewers? I have Elementary Tactics 1 by ChessKing but the tactics tend to be one-move deals and are too simple. I'm looking for something slighly more complex. Is CT-ART what Im looking for or will it be too hard for me and a waste of money? Thanks for your thoughts. Im looking more for an app than a website, but the latter could be interesting too.
