Chess Mazes is a tutorial chess game. With its help you will learn how to
plan your actions many moves in advance, to conduct highly complicated manoeuvring with
your pieces, to transfer them safely from certain squares to other, more convenient points
on the chessboard. But this program does more than train chess playing skill. It is also
meant to develop - little by little, without you even noticing it as you play the games -
your intellectual faculties: combinatory thinking, operative memory, ability to focus your
attention and take decisions under conditions of time deficiency.
By its nature the game resembles a maze through which the optimum way has to be found as
quickly as possible. But the maze is not presented graphically, its air-castle
walls being shaped by squares guarded by enemy pieces. Your task is to transfer your
single piece from the square it occupies in the initial position to a target square
designated by a special symbol. But you have to do it without getting assailed by pieces
of the other side (the PC).
You are to choose the colour of your piece and, acco
rdingly, the opponents pieces . Making moves on the board is also up to you alone.
The PCs pieces just stand there motionlessly waiting for their moment to come... But
when your piece has carelessly stepped on a square aimed at by a unit of the opponent the
program will immediately capture it, and that will mean you have lost. But if you manage
to reach the desired square within the allotted time interval and in no more than 70
moves, the victory is yours.
