Welcome to the jungle! Jungle (also known as Dou Shou Qi, Jungle Chess or Animal Chess) is a Chinese strategy board game for two players. While the game is easy to learn, it is far from trivial to master (something I discovered the hard way during development). This incarnation of the game contains a basic computer opponent with whom you can practice, but the real challenge is playing against other people over the Internet. The game features an online lobby where you can find opponents from all over the world. There is a central server which handles both matchmaking and gameplay, eliminating the need to forward ports and exchange IP addresses.

System Requirements

The game currently runs on Windows, with support for other platforms planned based on interest. The minimum requirements follow:

  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 or above
  • At least 128 MB of available memory
  • A sound card
