Ares Chess 1.005.2 by Charles Roberson

So you think you can play Chess, then play the God of War: Ares. Ares Chess is a strong Chess program designed to play more human like than other Chess programs. As such, it should be more suitable for game analysis and match/tournament preparation. During the 2010 World Chess Championships, Ares predicted numerous moves missed by other programs. Testers commented Ares Chess is more enjoyable to play than many other programs due to its playing style. Ares Chess supports various features for play and analysis:
  • Full tackback
  • Hint / display thinking
  • Permanent brain / Pondering / Think on opponent's time
  • Multiple time controls: time per game, time per move, depth per move
  • Analyze moves / infinite analysis

Ares Chess works with any Chess GUI (Graphical User Interface) that supports the UCI (Universal Chess Interface) protocol. As such, it works with several UCI GUIs on the PC. Several of these GUIs are free and some you may already have:
