* ''Videogame/SunlessSea'': The Emperor's Tomb in the Empire of Hands has this puzzle as one of the various obstacles, in this case acting as the door's lock. It's lampshaded as an easy and overused StockPuzzle, matching with the general mockery of jungle temple tropes in this mission, but this one also has 15 disks, making it horribly tedious [[spoiler:and it's also badly-made, and won't actually open the door when it's solved]]. Fortunately, [[CuttingTheKnot you brought dynamite]].

* An old DOS and Apple II game called ''Monkey Business'' revolved around this -- a stack of monkeys is trying to reach the apples on the tree next to them, conveniently the same distance from the ground as their combined height.

* The robot puzzle in the secret laboratory in [[HiddenObjectGame IHOG]] ''Questerium: Sinister Trinity'' is the five-tier form. The discs (or lenses in this case) have to end up on the middle pole, so that green light can shine through them to germinate a plant seed.

* One of the activities in Math Blaster Pre-Algebra is a variation on the Towers of Hanoi where barrels in the basement must be stacked to solve a math problem. Rather than varying sizes of barrels, it uses varying numbers on the barrels which must add up to the number on the platform. There are three places to put the barrels and four barrels. There are two platforms which may or may not have different numbers.
