Engine Chess

Chess is an unlicensed game for the Sega Mega Drive that was most likely released in 1998. Very little information is known about it, although its ROM is available on the internet, and it is one of the included built-in games on the 80-in-1 model of AtGames' Sega Mega Drive Arcade Ultimate portable system. It is unknown whether it has any relation to the unreleased Sega Channel game Chessmaster

Gameplay Edit

The gameplay is just an average Chess video game, though the board is 3D. The chess board can be customized.

Music Edit

The music was composed by Victor Chernov and resembles Russian folk music. The two looping tracks are not looped properly. For those who find the music annoying and repetitive, the music can be turned off along with the notably irritating PSG sound effects.

The game uses an unknown custom sound driver. In 2015, ValleyBell built a converter which converts the ROM to VGM files.
