Great game, but not anything like Chinese Chess
It takes a bit of a learning curve to figure out how to use the luck-based piece summoning to your advantage, but after that, this is a really fun and addictive game to play.
I don't know why you compare it to Chinese Chess. I've checked the rules of Chinese Chess, as well as several other chess-like games from different cultures, and it is not similar to any of them, least of all Chiness Chess, which, like "Western Chess", is far more complicated.
Some other reviewers have claimed there is a strong similarity to stratego, but that is not the case either.
It's hard to say if this game is unique in its rules, but I cannot find any other game like it.
Graphics are good, animation could be better.
