Attention span: 6/10 This game is only good with two
Controls: 6/10 Keys take a while to respond
Implementation: 9/10 3 1/2 K seems reasonable for chess
Overall: 7/10 All fans of chess should get this

Chesspro 1.5 by Francis Huang is the quickest BASIC chess game around. Because the game uses letters instead of characters, movements are faster than in Chess X. Verifying moves are simple. If you should get caught playing by your teacher, there's a save option, too. Though this small, 3 1/2 K game is entertaining, there are some downsides which can hamper other programs.

Chesspro uses Pic 9 and Matrix G to store information. Although many people do not use matrices as high as G, certainly pictures are used up. Mr. Huang should use G to recall all the positions of game pieces during a load. I once deleted Pic 9 before loading a match and the whole game was screwed.

Because there is no A.I. fast or small enough for BASIC, the game is forced to be a two-player program. The user is required to swap his calculator with a friend while playing. There is no link support for Chesspro; although I'm sure a simple list and getcalc() could fix that.

If you're a chess lover, I suggest you download this file. If, however, you're not a big fan of board games, you should try something else.
