  • A total of 119 level settings to choose from. These 119 level settings are divided into two groups of 56 levels plus 7 solve mate levels. Group 1 will follow a more balanced playing style. Its game will be position bound and the computer will not make risky moves. In other words the computer always searches to its maximum ability to find the best move. Group 2 level settings follow a more random or human like playing style and tends to make strategical mistakes. Its play will be more aggressive and the computer deliberately makes alternative moves which are not absolute the best of its search. This playing style offers interesting game variations and will challenge your chess skills.
