Editors' Review

"Spider takes Cockroach" doesn't quite have the same ring as "Queen takes Knight," but in the game of Fantasy Chess, it's all the same. Though the graphics are middling and the gameplay limited to beginning levels, this program does follow the basic rules of chess. The gameboard (and most pieces) are two-dimensional, and for some reason you can't choose whether to be black or white; the computer chooses for you.

The trial version does, however, let you choose between dinosaur pieces and classic ones. During the game, you can redo your last move or set up situations on the board for further study, but when we tried the latter feature, we couldn't pick up the game again; it just started over. So to sum up: iffy looks, limited options, and bugs galore--not exactly our chess fantasy.
