I haven't tested the game, and am a bit afraid that the two-way capture
makes the pieces too powerful. But the game looks promising, to say the
least. So I give it a rating of Excellent as it is, or, if need be, with
some twisted rule which decides at any time whether the piece captures by
replacement or by jumping, or with your suggested rule that capture by
jumping is possible on an adjacent piece.
(I believe you're right to pit the 64-square version for PBEM.)
