Jang-gi simulates the Korean two-player board game similar to Chinese Chess and is unofficially called Korean Chess.
The game is played on 9x10 point board, without the Chinese river in the middle. Jangi-gi board rules allows the player to select a unit, examine the place, where it may move, make a move, and win the game by capturing as much opponent's units as possible. During the game, a list of captured pieces may be examined, move may be replayed, and other options may be adjusted. Game progress may be saved, restored, replayed, and printed.
Jang-gi is a competent, no-nonsense computer version of Chinese chess that plays a decent game without the frills of commercial titles. If you enjoy Chinese chess, this freeware game from Korea is well worth a look for its tough AI. It has only the most basic options (including show captures, rotate board, etc.), and doesn't provide any on-line hints or rules. Beginners to the game should take a look at a more complete commercial release such as Interplay's Battle Chess 2: Chinese Chess instead.
