Shogi is Japanese Chess.
The difference between this and regular Chess is that the player is allowed to reuse the pieces captured from the opponent for themselves.
With exceptions to the King and the Gold, any pieces that enter the zone of the opponent can be turned over to increase their range of movement.
Positioning 2 or more Pawns on a vertical line is not permitted if the Pawns are not turned over.
Also, although it is possible to put a King in mate with your own Pawn, it is not permitted to put a King in mate with a Pawn captured from your opponent.
This is because such act is an insult to the King.

Crashes when you’re winning
Three times now I have been close to beating the computer after very long games and the game crashes. For some reason it seems like it only happens when I am in the advantage. Besides being unplayable most times, I like app.
I’m happy with it.
I haven’t had any crashes with it yet. I’m still a beginner so beating it at level one has not caused me any problems. I enjoy the sound of the pieces hitting the board.
Great Shogi app!
Just started learning to play Shogi, very helpful with the option for English lettering on pieces, movements, and movement highlighting on board. Great application!
