Chess-players with a 48K Spectrum will find this program ideal if they are stuck for a partner, With levels of competence ranging from 0 to 9, both novice and expert will be guaranteed a good game.

You can choose the colour of the board, the pieces and the background to suit yourself, although I found the display quite easy on the eye as it was. Other options include setting up the board - marvellous for problems - requesting the computer to suggest a move, and saving a game.

At level 0 the game is very fast, getting progressively slower as you approach level 9, which as far as I'm concerned is championship chess.

I have seen other chess games for computers, but as far as I am concerned, this is the best so far, and should give hours of enjoyment to the chess buff.
