Tower of Hanoi is a classical 139-year-old puzzle of moving a whole stack of disks from one place to another. Only one disk may be moved at a time, and no disk may ever be placed on top of a smaller disk.

This is a TAS of the homebrew GB version made in December 2021 (ROM can be downloaded there). To my knowledge, this is the only cartridge homebrew implementing the Tower of Hanoi puzzle. The goal of this TAS is to complete all available puzzles (from 3 disks up to 9 disks), as there is no other realistic definition of 100%. (Fortunately this game doesn't have a 64-disk mode. Legend has it that the world will end when the 64-disk puzzle is complete.)
There isn't much more to say about it. Just watch the TAS and you'll see.


  • 100%: Completes all available puzzles (from 3 disks up to 9 disks) as fast as possible. Puzzles must be done in order. A puzzle is completed when the game says "PERFECT GAME!" or "GAME COMPLETE".

Anything else

  • This implementation allows you to move the stack to either one of the two other spots (some rulesets require the stack to be moved to a specific spot, but not this one). I chose to have the stack end on the bottom right for 3, 6 and 9 disks, and end on the bottom left for 4, 5, 7 and 8 disks. This is purely a stylistic choice and does not affect the length of the optimal solution.

ThunderAxe31: Claiming for judging.
ThunderAxe31: As a homebrew game, it looks fine enough. And the movie looks optimized enough. Accepting for Standard.
