Try This

If you have never heard of shogi and you like western chess you should give this a try. Shogi is extremely popular in Japan. It adds an extra level of complexity and fun by allowing you to use pieces that you capture. On your turn, instead of moving a piece you can place a captured opponents piece almost anywhere ( with some restrictions) on the board. If you think about this, it opens up a lot of strategic and tactical options. You wont be disappointed.

Great but...

If you fixed it to where it shows the title number/letter (ex. 8c) that would be great. Also smoothing out graphic details along with the double-tap zoom which is unecessary and quite annoying. Also something to tell you you are in check or checkmate would also be great.

Asides from all that though this is a great game and can only hope future updates further improve the gameplay.

Best shogi app available!!!

I was very thrilled to find such a great shogi app for the iPhone. Computer was a little tough at first, but I have learned from all the games. I have tried 2 other shogi apps (including morita) and this one is the best by far. If your a fan of chess give shogi a try, you won't be disappointed!
