This game works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac

"Traditional full-featured chess game with all of the standard chess features. Difficulty is chosen by selecting one of four levels and then assigning a time limit for the computer to choose a move. The idea is to allow infinite degrees of difficulty.

The only differentiating feature for this time period is the fact that the board is rendered in 3D, so instead of just appearing 3D, you can actually rotate the board through any angle."

About the downloads available above:
1st download is the original file in English (v1.0.5)
2nd & 3rd downloads are the French version (v1.0.3)

Architecture: 68k

Minimal requirements:
Macintosh Plus, 1 meg of RAM (more for better playing strength)

Tested successfully on:
Mini vMac for Mac OS X w/System 6.0.8
Basilisk II for Mac OS X w/System 7.5.5

NONE of these versions, English or French, are working with SheepShaver for Mac OS X w/Mac OS 9.0.4 (see below). Consequently, I have removed Mac OS 9 from the compatibility list. Compatibility with Mac OS 8 is still uncertain and needs to be tested.

Sorry, you seem to have discovered a problem in this program. Think hard about what you just did, and report: “Unknown pixel type”

I have uploaded the French edition of CheckMate, aka Chess Champion 2175. This is not exactly the same version as the original upload though. No anti-piracy trivia for this one. New screenshots have also been added.
