That "portal movement" one the laziest programming moves I've seen.
Oh god noooooooooooooooooo!!!
Whenever we visited my boring out of state relatives when I was a kid, my parents would make it up by buying me something from the mall. This game was my choice for that year. I was depressed for a month after.
The computer took longer to make moves than my Commodore 64 version of Battle Chess. Almost 20 seconds for queen's pawn forward two opener? Really?
Every piece used the exact same attack and death animation no matter the matchup.
This definitely needs a "Capstone" tag. I forget what other games they made but I remember they were all equally terrible. Time to hunt them down!

OK so I looked them up on Wikipedia, they have an article with no references whatsoever, and it's in a category of "Low-importance video game articles" which has 26,941 entries.
I am getting way too worked up over how the Arnold T-800 is the King piece in this game. Why would it be him (the robot hero who doesn't make it out of the last scene alive, spoilers), and not John Connor (the character whose continued survival the entire plot of Terminator 2 is centered around)
although i guess it's STILL better than "exoskeleton" and "blue exoskeleton"
Yeah, I don't know what the logic behind that was.
