From Chess Programming Wiki:

   Chess Player 2150 was a commercial chess program developed by Chris Whittington in 1989, marketed by his company Oxford Softworks. The program has started it’s career with an impressive 1st place in the 1989 British Open Personal Computer Chess Championship. Chess Players 2150 ran on various most 68000 based platforms, like Atari ST and Commodore Amiga, and the 2175 version was also ported to run on Apple Macintosh and 8086 PCs. According to Thorsten Czub, Chess Player 2150 used a selective Shannon Type B Strategy, with its immanent affinity to blunder once in a game [2]. Chess Player 2150 played also at the 1st Computer Olympiad 1989.
   Chess Player 2150 decisively defeated its computer opponents. He beats ChessMaster 2000 9:1, Colossus Chess 9.5:0.5, ChessMaster 2100 6.5:3.5 and Psion Chess 7:3. Although the author clearly wanted the game to be used by serious chess players, he included in some versions of this game whimsical chess pieces as well. One set includes farm animals (sheep pawns, dog rooks, horse knights, chicken bishops, cow queens, and pig kings); Another setting includes Science-Fiction pieces that look like aliens. The game can be played in 2D or 3D, and includes digitised speech on the Amiga version.

Platform:

This ver­sion of Chess Player 2150 was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
