Attention span: 9/10 If you like puzzles, it'll keep you hooked for a while.
Controls: 8/10 I don't particularly like 2nd-left and 2nd-right, but it's not too bad.
Implementation: 6/10 Needs better graphics and a high score
Overall: 7/10 Addictive, but needs a couple enhancements before it's complete.

Tower of Hanoi, by Alban Gervaise is a puzzle game where the objective is to move all the disks from the first peg to the third one, without ever putting a larger disk on top of a smaller one. This is a simulation of a puzzle that exists in real life (real pegs, real disks, etc).

This game is a very good simulation of the real puzzle, plus it has a couple extras. All the movement is correct, and the minimum moves feature is really nice. You can choose to play with anywhere from 3 to 9 disks, and each new disks essentially doubles the amount of minimum moves to finish the puzzle. When playing the game, pressing [home] will save the game and exit, pressing [clear] will restart the level, and pressing escape will exit.

Although it doesn't really need to display a whole lot, the graphics in this game are quite meager. The disks are simply see-through rectangles of variable width. They could have much more detail. In addition, all that happens when you win the game is it says "you win" in the lower left corner. For someone who spent over half an hour performing the exact minimum of 511 moves to finish the stack of 9 disks (I managed that earlier today), the game could give at least a "congratulations." A high score would be nice, too.

If you enjoy puzzle games, this will bring you hours of enjoyment. Although frustrating at first, there is a definite pattern to it, and once you crack that, you can do anything fairly easily, including tackling the 9 disks. It's definitely worth looking at.
