TI-Chess is a full featured chess game for the TI89/TI-92p/V200 (read the included readme.txt file for its features and history.txt for what's new). This is the full distribution. v4.11 adds TI-89 Titanium compatibility.
Graphics: 9/10 - Good graphics. Features a few different piece settings.
Features: 10/10 - Play chess with a friend, a computer, watch 2 computers play, computer nodal display & book options (kudos to this), puzzles, save game option, 5 difficulty settings. This game is packed.
Difficulty: 1/10 - The computer was pretty easy even at level 5. Searched a respectable calc speed of 200 positions per second (but at level 5 when it needs around 40000 positions to search it takes a good few minutes to do so). Approximately searches around 5 moves ahead. Well at least it's the best that a calculator chess playing program can do.
Replay Value: 9/10 - This game was meant to be played over and over again!
Overall: 7/10 - If the computer was harder and faster, this program would receive a higher score. But this is a classic game for the TI-89, so I recommend this to everyone. It is feature packed and the best chess program of TI-89 to date.
