Plays a pretty crappy game, even for it's time. And it has a weird bug; When it gets a completely lost, it tends to make illegal king moves:

(level 24)

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d5 3.Nxe5 dxe4 4.Nc3 Qd4 5.Qh5 Be6 6.Nb5 Qd5 7.Nxc7+ Ke7 8.Nxd5+ Bxd5 9.d3 exd3 10.Bxd3 Bxg2 11.Qg5+ Nf6 12.Qxg2 Kd6 13.Nxf7+ Kc5 14.Be3+

Illegal move Ke6.

Kb4 is the only legal move, which would have been followed by 15.Qxb7+ and 16.Qb5#

Plenty of better options exist if you are interested in early 80s computer chess. Try Psion or MyChess for MS-DOS, or Sargon or Microchess for Apple II or the Commodore computers (PET, VIC20, C64).
