C++ Game Project | Tower Of Hanoi Using Stacks
Developed Under: Dev C++ 5.11
Data Structure: Stack
Object Oriented Programming: Yes
The Tower of Hanoi is a mathematical puzzle game. It consists of three rods, and a number of disks of different sizes which can slide onto any rod. The puzzle starts with the disks in a neat stack in ascending order of size on one rod, the smallest at the top, thus making a conical shape.The objective of the puzzle is to move the entire stack to another rod.
There are some rules which should be obeyed playing the game:
- Only one disk can be moved among the towers at any given time.
- A disk can only be moved if it is the uppermost disk on a stack.
- No large disk can sit over a small disk.
Tower of Hanoi puzzle with n disks can be solved in minimum of 2n−1 steps. A puzzle with 3 disks takes minimum of 23 – 1 = 7 steps.

The basic purpose of uploading the code on this website is that students can get knowledge from it. It helps them in understanding the syntax, functions of the programming language.

Features of Project:
The main features of this C++ program are:
This game has 2 levels. Level1 contains 3 disks while level2 contains 4 disks. If you are an expert in level1 then you can move onto level 2 which is a bit difficult.
A user guide is included in the program which tells the user about the rules of game. A programmer is also recommended to read these rules before analyzing the code of program. A user can access these rules by pressing “1” in main menu.
Like all other games, this game also has a scoring system which computes the score based on the moves. If a person moves the disk many times to complete the puzzle then his score will get worse.

Stack Data Structure:
This program uses the stack data structure. This data structure is based on LIFO i.e Last In First Out principle. For example, if you want to get the computer science book, which is underneath your math and history books, you must first remove the math and history books to access the desired book. You can consider the 3 rods of this program as 3 stacks.
File handling is a crucial part in a program. This program uses file handling to store the scores. C++ code creates a .dat file and stores “best scores” in it.
Originally this program is written by my friend, Abu Bakar Ghori. He has a lot of interest in programming. He is studying Computer Science in University of Gujrat. He shared this project to help other students. This project is one of best projects made by him. I hope so that he will write more programs to upload on this website.
