Chess software comes in different forms. A chess playing program provides a graphical chessboard on which you can play a chess game against a computer. Such programs are available for personal computers, video game consoles, smartphones/tablet computers or mainframes/supercomputers. A chess engine generates moves, but is accessed via a command-line interface with no graphics. A dedicated chess computer has been purpose built solely to play chess. A graphical user interface (GUI) allows you to import, and load an engine, and play against it. A chess database allows you to import, edit, and analyze a large archive of past games.
