Better looking and new controls
My Towers of Hanoi finally made it to the front page, but ToH 2 is already completed! Here it is, with better looking graphics and some new features.

New features
- Difficulty level option
- Colored pieces
- New controls
- New spiffy looks
- Slower timer on scores

More info
Every piece now has it's own color so you won't get them mixed up as easily. You can now play with either 1,2 and 3 or the new controls where you move an arrow with the arrow keys and pick up/put down pieces with shift. Nwebies can now try the puzzle with only 3 or 5 pieces for practice. The highscore timer is slowed down due to the fact that some people couldn't finish the puzzle before the counter reached zero.

I did some research on the game and this is what came up:
According to the legend, ancient indian munks had to move a pile of 64 sacred disks from one location to another. The disks are fragile; only one can be carried at a time. If they would put a bigger disk on a smaller one the disk would break. And between these two places there is only one place sacred enough to store the disks inbetween. But the monks didn't finish the task, because all the monks died of old age and the temple turned to dust.

Some calculations
The original tower was 64 pieces. Now the minimum number of moves required for that is exactly 18446744073709551615. If you move one piece every second it would take you about 599730287456 years to complete the puzzle. This version with only 7 pieces will take a minimum of 127 moves. At the same speed it would take a little over 2 minutes. =

Bad graphics :( + Try also Army tanks 1.2 "new version". You'll find it on (action) site.

I got 7594 on my first try. Personally, I feel there is no need for dazzling graphics. They currently serve their purpose well, seeing as I didn't get confused as to which piece was bigger. It is a simple game that needs no greater effects than the pickup and drop noises... I could listen to those all day... BTW: I noticed a glitch that allows the player to pickup more than one piece at a time by pressing '2' and '3' simultaneously. The game then becomes impossible to complete (the largest piece will be hovering at the end without the ability to put it anywhere).
