Skippy Lite - the lively Solitaire

Description

Skippy Lite is the modern implementation of the ancient board game known as "Peg Solitaire" or simply "Solitaire" (don't mistake it for the card game). The object of the game is to eliminate balls and finish the game with only one ball remaining on the board, preferably in the center position.

You remove a ball by jumping over it with another ball. Only certain jumps are allowed: you must jump horizontally or vertically, and you can jump only over one ball at a time to a free adjacent field. On triangular boards horizontal as well as diagonal jumps are allowed. Vertical moves are not possible.

This sounds all very easy, and it is. But don't be surprised if you have to put on your thinking cap. Skippy strengthens the ability to think logically, improves the power of concentration and helps you keep a flexible mind. You might call it Chess with balls. It's also perfectly suitable for children.

Skippy Lite comes with six popular boards: the English Board, a solvable variant of the French Board and the Diamant, which is not as difficult to play. Furthermore, it include triangular boards with 15, 21 and 28 fields. You can undo the last move and let the software show you possible moves. See a movie of Skippy in action on my website.

If you like Skippy Lite, you might also be interested in its bigger brother Skippy XL (also available in the App Store).

Just in case you are wondering: Skippy Lite is not a social networking tool. It can not connect to Twitter or Facebook. I am thinking about implementing a gloabl highscore system though. What do you think?
