Because this is a Japanese text only game, I cannot review it properly. If there are any Japanese-speaking people out there that could possibly give me a little info about this game, then please let me know!

I really could not understand how to play this game properly, because of the language barrier (I lack any Japanese skills). It seems to be some sort of chess style game. There are two game play modes, the first mode I was not sure about, but it seems there are different counters and each of them move across the board in different ways like in Chess. I managed to figure out a bit of the second mode, it seems like you have to trap an opponents counter or counters in between two of your own to take it. When you get rid of enough of them, you win the match. I don't really know much more about it than this.

The graphics are not fantastic, although there is only so much you can do with a board and some counters. There are some nice little digitised and animated pictures of you opponent in the corner of the screen, which change depending on whether you are winning/losing or if the character is planning their next move.

As far as the sound goes, it is not great. The music is annoying after a while and there are not many different sound effects, just the clicking of the counters on the board when you make your move and that's about it.

If you know how to play Syougi, then you may enjoy this game. I definitely can't rate this game properly, because I couldn't really understand how to play it at all. However here are the rating I give it for sound and graphics, read the comment from Chris Mullins Neo Geo FAQ for an overall rating.

Graphics: 5/10
Sound: 4/10
Game play: n/a
