Cutlass (1994)

EXCALIBUR CUTLASS TRAVEL CHESS is an ideal opponent. It is ready to play you at any time, as often as you like, at whatever level of skill you choose.

There are 72 levels and a “MULTI-MOVE” mode. MULTI-MOVE allows you to make moves for both sides. This is useful if you want to use the computer as a chessboard and referee for a game between yourself and a fried, or if you wish to enter a special sequence of moves, for example the moves of a particular chess opening or the moves of a game which you have found in a newspaper or a chess book.

    • Levels 1-24 take around 4 seconds per move.
    • Levels 25-48 take around 30 seconds per move.
    • Levels 49-71 take around 2-3 minutes per move.
    • Level 72 takes around 10 minutes per move.

If you set the computer on level 72 it can solve “mate-in-2” problems (unless they involve a pawn promotion to a knight, bishop or rook.
