If you can, can you pleasssee upgrade this to 9x9 shogi, it would be greatly appreciated if you upgraded in the next version of this game, i'm dying for it because this is the only shogi game on itunes!!!!! But it is a great app though...

At last!!

When this came out I emailed the author and he said that he was working on a full shogi game. I hope it's soon cause I'm getting impatient.

Not worth it yet...

It needs to be upgraded to full shogi. Full shogi is 9 by 9 and this is only 5 by 5. It is also missing some pieces. Real shogi also includes 9 pawns two lances and two knights(different than chess.) this app will have my full approval if it upgrades. Very glad that someone decided to make shogi though.
