Description from the packaging.

Closes the door on all the others.

Colossus is the most complete chess program available for the Apple 2 series. Written using the very latest techniques by a computer chess programmer of eight years experience. It has the widest range of true features available, including some never before implemented on any home computer chess program.

Colossus has a perfect understanding of all the rules of chess, including under-promotions, the fifty move rule and all draws by repetition. It can handle standard mates; including the very difficult King, Bishop and Knight versus King.

Colossus also offers the choice between the usual two dimensional flat board display and the new three dimensional real life board which allied to optional joystick control makes it clear and easy to use. It comes with a comprehensive instruction manual and is easily the best chess program for casual and serious players alike.
