Attention span: 5/10 The different number of disks to choose from adds to the attention span. It is very repetitive though, so it gets boring after a while.
Controls: 10/10 The controls make sense, and are responsive.
Implementation: 7/10 The interface could be better, but the game itself does the job.
Overall: 7/10 Good game, but lacks replay value.

Tower of Hanoi is the classic game in which the object is to move a number of disks from the far left pole to the far right one. There is one pole in the middle. At the beginning, the disks are stacked so the largest is on the bottom, and the smallest is on the top. The challenge is that you can only move one disk at a time, and only the top one from any pole. Also, you can only move a disk to a pole with no disks, or a pole with the top disk larger than the one being moved onto it. In this version of the game, you first choose the number of disks you want to try. This adds replay value, and allows people not familiar with the game to become more familiar. The controls make sense. The left arrow moves the cursor to the pole left of the current one (If the far left pole currently selected, the cursor moves to the right pole), and the right arrow moves the cursor right. The [2nd] key selects which pole to move from, and then you hit left to move the piece left (if the move is allowed), or right to move the piece to the pole to the right. If a pole is accidentally selected but the piece on it can't be moved, hit [2nd] again to deselect it.

This is a well done game, but it lacks a nice interface. The screen just comes up saying "Tower of Hanoi" in regular font, and then it has you select which number of disks. The message asking for the number of disks is in French, so I don't know what it said, although I realized it was probably number of disks because I had seen the game before. This game is fun for a while, but once you get the pattern that will always work, it becomes less enjoyable. It is a nice puzzle game, though.
