Computers were made for playing chess, and every computer system deserves a good chess game.  Amsoft was right on the ball with this one, getting it out from the get go.

This version has it all, 10 difficulty levels, all the moves, 6000 opening moves, timer, moves list.  It only has a 2D board that takes up half the screen, but that's all you need.  Later games like Cyrus II came up with 3D graphics, but they all play the same.

A well programmed chess game, but you would expect that from Mikro-Gen.
