Software Product Description

Towers of Hanoi is a free game based on the classic Towers of Hanoi puzzle. The object of the game is to move the tower of disks (which are stacked from the largest to the smallest, and the largest on the bottom) from the left-hand Dais to the right-hand Dais, but with certain rules of play. There are 3 Dais to use in trying to complete the task.

The rules are simple, but the game play can be quite challenging:

  • You can only move one disk at a time, and only the top disk.
  • You can not place a larger disk on top of a smaller disk.
  • When moving a disk from one Dais to the other, you may use any of the 3 Dais.
  • Complete the game successfully by creating another tower of disks (with the largest disk on the bottom and increasingly smaller) on the right-hand Dais.

During game play, moving the disks is performed using your mouse. Simply drag any disk to the preferable Dais. As you play, the session time is visible and recorded. Once the task is complete, the best time will be displayed.

In version 2.0, the number of Disks is increased from 7 to 9. The additional disks makes for a relatively more difficult playing experience, but a game can now be Paused or even Saved across Sessions.

Another handy feature is an Achievements board, which displays the five best times. When a game is completed, the program will check if the game session time is eligible for a place on the Achievements board. If you make the top 5, it will include the time taken to complete the puzzle, the name of the player, and the number of moves taken.
