Review from Practical Computing, May 1979
"Cassette for Commodore Pet. Available from most Pet dealers. Manufactured by Petsoft. Price: £8.
The excellent graphics definitely place this above other Backgammon programs. Initially, it asks how many players there are, indicating that you can play with the computer, or against a human opponent.
The screen displays an actual simulation of a backgammon board, with the bar in the middle. Unfortunately, there are no instructions with the cassette - at least, we received none - so it is a matter of trial and error to discover the code for getting off the bar and moving to home.
We can reveal that to get a counter off the bar you key-in B, space, and number you are going to, and, to get home, F, space, number you are coming from. The computer rolls the dice for you and you key-in the number to which you want to move.
On the whole, a very enjoyable program to pass the time. -K.F."
