* Space War - The player must try to destroy an enemy base, but two missiles controlled by the calculator must be avoided. (adapted from a SR-52 program)
* Hexpawn - Tactical game on a 3x3 chessboard with both the player and calculator controlling three pawns which follow normal Chess rules. Uses cybernetic AI that learns the optimal strategy after some games.
