SummaryEarly Chess Game
The GoodThe first thing that impressed me about this chess game was the ease of use, & clear display, which was good for an early game of this period. To play it is important to have a copy of the manual handy, as there are a couple of commands that are not obvious without it. There are 8 levels available, with the first two very easy, & I managed to beat level 4 after a bit, although I am not renowned for my great chess skills. The graphics, although black/white are clear, & it is easy to see what the pieces are.
The BadIf you haven't got a manual handy you could be in trouble, as for some reason the default is on level 8, & if you don't know how to change it, you have the impression the game is really hard. I would also have liked a replay a go command, as there was a couple of times I moved without meaning to do so, & there was no way back.
