Chess Partner Screen [1] [2]

Chess Partner,
an early chess program for the IBM PC by Scott Murray; commercially released in 1983, running under DOS 1.1 or later. It requires a color graphics adapter and 128KiB of memory. In his review, along with the SPOC program, chess player and programmer Dave Whitehouse's recommendation was to wait for something better to come along [3].
