Opening play is sometimes erratic, sidepoints being taken whereas grabbing the corners on such a small board is vital. To be fair though, the program is obviously directed towards beginners with little or no experience. Read Review
Very well written... Graphics are good and the few sound effects are just right. The computer's response time is around three seconds on the Beeb but a little slower on the Electron. Read Review
Go, invented 4,000 years ago, is Japan's national board game and is immensely popular throughout the Far East. Compared to other games of strategy, it has simpler rules, yet vastly more possibilities for imaginative play. So much so, that until the adventure of microgo1, it was widely believed to be impossible for a computer to master the game.
microgo1 not only plays intelligently (on a 9 x 9 board) but also teaches the rules and fundamental tactics. If you haven't seen microgo1 in action, a demonstration is a must!
