The only thing that lets Colossus down is its presentation. The 3-D representation of the pieces is not particularly clear and the method of changing to a 2-D mode is not very easy being well obscured in the instruction manual. Also included in the disk version is a selection of games featuring computers and a number of problems for you to try and solve.

The computer opponent is not only a very strong player it is also extremely smug as it has the cheek to suggest moves for you to play and then gleefully announces that it will get checkmate in 4 moves. You can however clip it's wings a little by restricting the time it has to think and even stop it using it's first choice move leaving it to choose another one. Finally the package also contains a problem solver for those irritating 'white to play and win' problems and in a forthcoming microdrive version will have 34 sample games.
