Description (by MrFlibble)

A simple chess program with monochrome graphics. Apparently, it is based on the code of Sargon, one of the earliest computer chess programmes which made its appearance in 1978.

The pieces are controlled by keyboard only. Press Del to select a piece, use the arrows to move it and press Ins to confirm your move. There are six difficulty levels.
