Chess Ballet Screensaver

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
A simple little program that features chess pieces flying slowly by on the computer display, this download isn't quite up to the standards of most commercial screensavers. The software itself offers a reasonable number of options, allowing users to set sound volume, change the number of "dancing" pieces, and the duration of each scene. Different scenes can be displayed at will. However, the overall impression remains that of a creative student project. It would make a fine piece of freeware, but it's considerably outclassed in the competitive market for commercial screensavers.
