Well programmed and the best chess game for the HP, but the engine is too predictable. Many thanks to the author for implementing a command to switch the graphics. With a little tuning and more randomization in choices this would be a stellar chess game (as chess games for a 4mhz processor go). Highly recommended.

is to dificult to win, however if you are training you would win in the future... I recommend just practice and more practice...

Very well programmed and good graphics (updated since screenshot). Good for a quick game on the easiest level, and impossible to beat on the hardest.

Thanks very much for this really good program! I enjoy very much having to wait a bit for the response of the machine, like in the good old times of the first home computers.

As a suggestion, I miss too a slight little bit of randomization in the computer moves, but the program is still excellent. Thanks very much !!!
