This game does't look like a Janggi variant, rather a Eurasian Chess variant. As a Korean having played Janggi since 7, I have general idea how pieces of Janggi should move: most pieces move along the linked 'road', except Ma(horse) and Sang(elephant). Even those pieces (Ma & Sang) are only allowed to 'jump' off the road (diagonally) after one-cell dash along the road. A variant of Janggi should place some emphasis on the role of terrain. This game can be good, but IMHO have a poor name and ranked as such. Sorry.
