3D Scacchi Simulator is a solitaire chess game pitting you against a variable level computer. You always take the first move by typing it on the move list screen. Although you can change to a tilted 3D graphical display of the chessboard and see a visualization of the current position by pressing the F1 function key, you must always be on the text screen to enter a move.
The board is labeled A to H along its bottom edge (left to right) and one to eight along the side (one being closest to you). To enter a move, you type in your desired move using the grid notation as reference points — the starting square of the piece you're moving followed by the destination square.
If the move is legal, the board is updated and the computer determines its next move. For example, if you want to move the pawn from in front of your queenside rook two squares forward, you A2 followed by A4. The goal, as in all games of chess, is to manipulate pieces, attacking and defending, until capture of your opponent's king is imminent and can't be avoided by the other player on his or her next move — the condition known as checkmate.
The game features several options such as automatic movement for both sides by the computer (it basically plays itself), rotation of the game board, solving for checkmate, hints or suggestion for moves, toggling sound on or off and printing the move list. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
