AbaCruX is a luxurious implementation of the well-known game peg solitaire. The game features great graphics, full animation, sound effects and a great interface. Additionally AbaCruX keeps score in the form of five completion levels for each of the available puzzles that range from "attempt" to "fully solved". The latter is awarded only if a single remaining ball is left in the board's center. These solution levels are displayed in the puzzle selection list and can be reset. There are 30 different puzzles altogether, 15 puzzles in the regular style and 15 in the French style with more to come. All graphics have been updated for Retina. To get a better look, click on the images for a larger representation. AbaCruX also supports full screen presentation on Mac OS 10.7 (Lion) and up.

Goal of the Game
The goal of the game is to eliminate as many game pieces as possible. A puzzle is solved when only one game piece remains and is located in the very center of the board. To eliminate a game piece one of the neighboring pieces jumps over the targeted one into an empty location next to the target. Only horizontal and vertical moves are allowed.
In AbaCruX there are 5 possible solution levels that are displayed to the right in the configurations table. They range from one to five stars and are awarded automatically at the end of each game. In order from one to five these stars denote the following:
- untouched (never tried)
- started, but not great
- decent effort (3 pieces left)
- not bad (1 remaining piece, not in the center)
- solved (last piece is in the center)
To get to Preferences, just select the regular Mac Preferences menu or the gear icon in the top left corner. Here you can silence the sound for the game, adjust the selection magnification and reset the solution status for all puzzles. The latter is not undoable, so take care with this setting. Selection magnification refers to how large the piece you are dragging is getting. Sometimes it can be easier to play with larger pieces. In preferences one can also turn off the "Highlight Valid Moves" cheat.
