The Advertising Blurb

Winner of the 1983 Cambridge Awards sponsored by Sinclair User. The game is played by two players on a board 21 x 32 showing a map which changes with every game. Each player has 29 pieces including infantry, cavalry, tanks, artillery and a King. The object of the game, like chess, is to kill the enemy King. The game will appeal equally to all ages and all skills. This is the computer age's answer to chess.

Review:

Anyone who actually knew anything about the Cambridge award knew that it was not a competition to get overly excited about. The fact that Sinclair User actually published a listing of this game makes the price that CCS were charging seem a tad steep. Overall, it is a well programmed and original BASIC wargame that has no addictive qualities whatsoever.
