Not bad but stands improvement

This game is ok for it's price. But it will be 10 times or 100 times better if it has smart hint function. Therefore Chinese chess learner has a chance to better his skill and not losing frequently. I don't think anyone enjoy losing. By the way, just as a different point of view, the international chess app(西洋棋 app) is doing very good on this(smart hint function which provides fabulous recommendation), and player can always improve his skill. I believe in Chinese chess, we can do the same thing.

Game is great and worth the price

However I wish clicking on the lightbulb at the bottom will be like a hint button where it would suggest you to move instead of moving it for you. Also at the end of a game it the back button is dissapointingly disabled so you cannot replay the game. I also wish that there was a forward button in addition to the back button.

Clean design, strong AI

Likes:
Large chess piece. Simple interface. Strong AI. Switch settings in mid game. Fast graphics. No observable bugs.

Could improve by adding:
Easier levels. I couldn't even win level 1. Library of classic battles.

Good deal at 99 cents. I tried the $3.99 game before this one. It closes itself randomly, and broke Internet connection.
