Hi,

Also, there's no mention about how strong the engine is.

I believe there is no engine at all :
"This is a fairly straightfoward chess game you
can play against yourself or a friend with"
Best,
Alain

Indeed! You can get some open source software for decent chess engines today but this one seems like it was written from the ground up. I'm not sure why they're selling the rights though. Also, there's no mention about how strong the engine is. I was just glancing through their site and came across the staff here:
