Producer: Artic, 48K £9.95
There's much argument over which is actually the best chess program for the Spectrum. Artic have produced a number of fine tapes, but this one stands out well against everyone else's. There are 1000 levels of play - you choose the maximum response time for the computer, and that dictates the skill level. When pitted against other computer programs, Artic's has consistently beat them - so they claim! But see for yourself. You may change sides, add or remove pieces, list or print out all moves made, and the computer will recommend a move.
