The ABALONE applet

This ABALONE applet is a very simple JAVA program, only made to demonstrate an Abalone program based on an alpha-beta algorithm.

You can follow this link to verify the compatibility of your machine or download the Java VM.

The rules of Abalone can be found here .

You always play first. The default level is 0. The program at that level plays almost immediately, but you can experience a network lag; the program is running on our machines, and the applet only sends the current position and displays the response. Level 1 is 1 second/move and level 2 is 3 seconds/move.

A single move in Abalone can imply moving many stones. The following examples show how to do it using the applet.

Moving three stones in the same direction:

An example of a sumito (push):

Moving three stones in parallel:

The move is checked and made by the applet by pushing the Go button. You can restart your move by clicking on the Undo button.
