Tower of Hanoi is a calssic puzzle game, updated with user-selectable graphic images (eleven in all) of varying difficulty. Can you solve the full 8-disk puzzle? In how many moves?

Great lesson in recursive programming for students. Includes AppleScript Studio source code, discussion of recursive "auto play" option, instructions for turning your own photos into game pieces.

FYI:I wanted to alert Panther users to a potential problem. Having recently upgraded to Panther myself, I have found that there is a bug in the Panther (OS X 10.3.9) version of AppleScript Studio that will cause a crash if you use AutoPlay with an 8-piece stack.

The reasons are technical, but essentially it is caused by an illegal memory access. I've submitted a bug report to Apple.

For now, you can solve smaller stacks (7 still works for me), just not 8 pieces.
