Artworx Software, publisher of the popular Strip Poker, has just released three new games for the ST.

Colossus Chess X provides four different sets of chess pieces, as well as allows players to view the board from any angle. The program also features six different playing modes and an opening book of over 11,000 records. One thing that makes Colossus unique is its ability to learn from past playing experiences. Colossus Chess X is priced at $34.95.

Tank Attack is a combination of a strategy board game and a real-time action game, and allows two, three or four players. Players try to capture their opponent's headquarters by strategically deploying their forces. The results of battles, as well as the weather predictions for the next day, are given after each move in a computerized daily newspaper. To add some spice to play, Tank Attack allows players to form alliances, which allows them to share rebuilding facilities. Tank Attack is $29.95.

Finally, World Snooker offers five different types of pool-type games: two versions of snooker, two types of pool and two types of billiards. Players may zoom in to align shots, as well as take back missed shots. Also, for trick shots the table may be set up in any way the players like. Further, World Snooker provides instant replays and four modes of play, including a practice mode that supplies shot prediction, where the computer will predict a ball's path. World Snooker can be purchased for $24.95.
