The Press Says

In conclusion, Shi Kin Joh is clearly an overlooked game (perhaps simply because it was only available in Japan). The game is rare, and if you're very lucky you might be able to find a copy of it available for sale on a popular online marketplace. The Mega Modem features are no longer functional, but you won't miss that at all. If you have a few hours or a day or two to kill, regardless if cartridge or emulator, feel free to try this obscure game that has a brilliant gameplay idea coupled with beefing extra features and offers just the right mixture to fully enjoy the game. I highly recommend it!
Power Play
Das Shikinjo-Spielfeld gibt’s in sechs verschiedenen und teils sehr hübschen Ausführungen, so daß auch westliche Spieler an diesem Import-Modul Freude finden; wer eins der seltenen Mega-Drive-Modems besitzt, darf sogar mit einem Freund über Telefon tüfteln. Wer immer noch nicht genug Denkspiele sein eigen nennt, darf zugreifen.
