This applet explains the leap fractal game and lets you play it. This can be
used to teach estimation skills in visualization plus strategy. The tantalizing
question that remains open is: Can you find the algorithm that always gets the
smallest number of moves?

Technical Remarks:

Runs fine under WIN98 and Explorer.
