Just his name: Richard Hanson (link1, link2).

Looking at reviews, the biggest complaint seems to be the time it sometimes took to make moves.

Looks as though he was not a chess specialist - link.

On even levels, the computer uses a shortened move list and randomises its selection. On odd levels, it uses the full move list and selects the best move from this list. wrote:

This sounds like level 2/4/6/8 is selective while 1/3/5/7/9 is brute force.

I think you can run it under an emulator under Windows.

If ever people wise up, and stop buying Windows, you'd then have to run the chess program under an Acorn emulator under a Windows emulator! Smile

I never owned any kind of Acorn, but I did have a job where we used BBC computers.
