Thanks for the heads-up!
I'm a bit puzzled how you could call Chinese Chess Master "amazing" when it was a terrible knock-off of Hikaru No Go (Japanese anime about Go), and had that weird and unfortunate electronic/video game element in it. Believe me, I wanted to like it, but, no. Too painful.
I will check out Chess King if I can - sadly, I know of nothing I can add, though.
Was it done by the same group as Hikaru No Go? If so, then it's not a rip off. If not then it clearly is.
