Halma is a player vs computer, mouse controlled, implementation of an board game from the 1880's which has much in common with the classic Chinese Checkers game. This game also has the option of playing against another player over the internet.

The original version of the game is played on 16x16 board with the player's pieces occupying opposite corners of the game area. In their turn a player may move any of their pieces one square in any direction, alternatively they may jump over an adjacent piece, of either colour, and keep on jumping as long as there are pieces to jump and the player wishes to continue. The object of the game is to move all pieces into the opponent's area. This implementation also comes with a French variant called 'Grasshopper' which is the same game but adapted to play on an 8x8 standard chess board.

The games play in a small window, are mouse controlled, have optional music and sound effects plus an internet play option. The strength of the AI opponent can be varied, there is a save game feature and the game keeps track of the moves played and has the option to print these.
