COLOSSUS is the best chess playing software program available for home computers, according to scores of independent reviews and test games.
Written by Martin P. Bryant, a specialist chess programmer of over twelve years experience. It uses all the very latest techniques to maintain its lead over all other programs and has defeated a wide range of them in test games.
COLOSSUS has the widest range of features and options, including many which are both unique and innovative. This version features the ability to learn new lines of play in order to improve its current play in the light of its playing experience to date. This means as you play more games COLOSSUS will become a finer, tougher opponent. COLOSSUS CHESS X is the first and only program currently available which can learn in its way.
COLOSSUS understands all the rules of chess including, underpromotion, the fifty move rule and draws by repetition. It can also handle all the standard mates including the very difficult King, Bishop and Knight versus King.
