App description: On Apple's What's Hot in Board Games. Peg Pals produces thousands of puzzles based on the classic triangular peg puzzle theme BUT with a unique twist and with unlimited hints so that you can see how to solve any puzzle.

The puzzles dont necessarily just consist of a single peg removed from the board.
The app removes a carefully calculated collection of pegs so that that resulting position is solvable.

The rules are simple: Starting from the initial puzzle position, jump over pegs into vacant spots.
The jumped pieces are removed. Your goal is to end with just one peg left on the board.

The state of the game is always saved. You will never lose your place if interrupted by a phone call or stopping for a while to run another app.

Youll discover that Peg Pals will make you expert at solving puzzles of this nature.
You can completely analyze any peg puzzle position and find out all about the solutions to the puzzle; How many solutions (if any) are there for any move; How many solutions end at each location, and more.

Really sweet idea of the randomized boards - I'm a huge fan of peg solitaire games, anyways, however the actual artwork is a bit of a letdown - wish you'd revise that and polish it up a notch.
Good luck with this !

Thanks for the input.

So exactly what part of the artwork would you want to see improved - the pieces, board, or ...?
