This program is a chess game simulator. It allows you to play either against the computer (as a virtual player), or online, against other real players logged in from around the world. The latter option presupposes your connecting to a chess server. All you have to do is register for free, and set up an account. Afterward, you will also be able to discuss with your opponents by means of the program's chat function.
This game has a very intuitive interface, and it allows game play in either 2D, or 3D format. After installing it, you will be able to choose the level you want to play at, by accessing the ‘Settings’ option in your toolbar. There is one minor disadvantage at this step, namely that there are very few difficulty grades that you can set, which does not allow for the significant variety of players' experience levels.
You will also be able to choose whether you want to play alone against the computer ('one player') or if you want to play with a friend alongside ('two players' - with this setting, the program will turn the game board after every move, so that each player might be able to take their turn). Of course, within the same menu, you will also be allowed to select which color you want to play. The game runs reliably and never crashes, ensuring a smooth play experience.
In conclusion, Falco Chess proves to be a simple, but effective and delightful chess simulator for all enthusiasts of the game.
- You can play alone against the computer, against a friend directly, or over the Internet
