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.
- There is a guide that informs player of a possible movement of the pieces.
- Four computer levels.
- 22 kinds of handicaps.
- Position editor.
- Fixed a minor issue.
Ratings and Reviews
Computer player locks up
This would be a great app if the computer player didn't lock up six moves into the game.
Almost the best shogi app
This is a really well done app, it has local multiplayer on one iPad and Vs Ai. The graphics are the best out of any of the shogi apps and there are some nice features for practicing the game. My only complaint is there is no online mode. If I could play this game over the Internet with my friends(like chess with friends) this would be THE Shogi app for iOS, however it's not there, sadly...So only 4 stars. I hope the developers consider adding some sort of online multiplayer either play by turn or real time.
Great shogi app
This app has been great helping learn shoji. Although there are no lessons (hint hint developers), playing the computer has taught me a lot. I also enjoy the saving feature. I can go back and review the parts of a game where I started losing or winning. I can even open up a saved game and play at those critical moves to play out a different outcome, although when you do that you have to play both sides. It would be nice if the AI would be able to play the other side. Anyway, it's a great game and app!!!
