'Colossus' is the name given to a series of intelligent computer games programs started by myself in 1983. First came 'Colossus Chess' which was marketed for numerous micro-computers during the 1980's and was one of the best selling programs of its era. Later I developed a 'Colossus Backgammon' program followed shortly by 'Colossus Draughts' ('Checkers' in the USA). I developed a passion for Draughts and my program became one of the strongest commercially available Draughts programs in the world. This site serves as a historical record of those programs and others written by myself.

Nowadays, I work as a senior programmer for Hewlett Packard. I haven't done any games programming since 2008. My main hobby at the moment is archery!
