DOS - 1992
Description of Cyberchess
Cyber Chess is a decent clone of Interplay’s Battle Chess, although with far inferior graphics and animations, even if it was released a few years later.
The pieces are cast as sci-fi kings, queens, and robots, fighting for survival with chess moves as the only weapons. The game is played from a top-down (i.e. bird’s eye view) perspective, with a small window at the lower right of the screen dedicated to showing the current piece you have selected. The computer AI is decent, although there is no way to change difficulty level. The game does include minimal options, such as move hints and player history that keeps track of your games.
Overall, a nice low-budget title that does nothing better than commercial chess releases... although not much worse, either, except for the lack of options.

I remember that in 2006, I still have a copy of Cyberchess. I love the game's strategy of planning and persistent attack on the opponent's King and it influenced my game a lot. You will also learn all the good openings that was invented by letting Cyberchess play against itself !? I just wonder why the developers did not edit the source codes so that it can also be played on Windows, and not DOS! I would love to comment more about this game as I love to play Cyberchess over and over again. I highly recommend this to my children and my children's children who will love chess as a sport.
