Similar to most other chess programs, Power Chess provides tutorials in helping new players, while analyzing gameplay to improve one's strategy. Advice is given by the game's Queen, who walks the player through the move sequence and points out any mistakes made. The player can play ranked matches by challenging the game's King. A rating is assigned depending on play style and whether the player won, lost or drew the game. Players can also create their own characters with differing gameplay styles and difficulty.
A collection of famous games is included for review and study, each one narrated turn-by-turn by the Queen. The games include:
- The Evergreen Game, Adolf Anderssen vs. Jean Dufresne (1852)
- The Opera Game, Paul Morphy vs. Duke Karl of Brunswick and Count Isouard (1858)
- Wilhelm Steinitz vs. Curt von Bardeleben (1895)
- Ruger vs. Gebhard (1915)
- Vasily Smyslov vs. Bobby Fischer (1970)
- Wchess vs. Deep Blue (1995)
- Deep Blue vs. Garry Kasparov, Game 1 (1996)
