Notes

Published on the PCW Games Collection from Personal Computer World magazine. These compilation cassettes were published by Century Communications Ltd. The accompanying book contained the following description:

For those of you who dislike the fast action games, here is a computerized version of an old chess problem. The idea is to visit every square on the board, once only, with a knight.

Although there is an option to allow the computer to demonstrate the pattern of moves, you should find this problem much harder than it appears at first sight.

When you run the program you will be presented with the chessboard and the option of either playing or watching the computer demonstration. Whichever option is chosen, you must then specify the starting position for the tour round the board.

When viewing the demonstration, all you have to do is to press the space bar for each move. When attempting the tour yourself you must enter the co-ordinates of each successive move. In both cases the knight is represented by a K and squares are coloured red if they have already been visited.
