2048 is played on a 4×4 grid, with numbered tiles that slide smoothly when a player moves them using the four arrow keys. Every turn, a new tile will randomly appear in an empty spot on the board with a value of either 2 or 4.
Tiles slide as far as possible in the chosen direction until they are stopped by either another tile or the edge of the grid. If two tiles of the same number collide while moving, they will merge into a tile with the total value of the two tiles that collided.
The resulting tile cannot merge with another tile again in the same move
A scoreboard keeps track of the user's score. The user's score starts at zero, and is incremented whenever two tiles combine, by the value of the new tile.
The game is won when a tile with a value of 2048 appears on the board, hence the name of the game. After reaching the 2048 tile, players can continue to play (beyond the 2048 tile) to reach higher scores. When the player has no legal moves (there are no empty spaces and no adjacent tiles with the same value), the game ends.

2048 reviews and comments

I like the basic game a lot, but the challenges are badly constructed I think. I got stuck on number 18, and most of the time it’s mathematically impossible to win because there are simply to few points on the board. In general, the it’s a pretty good way to waste time, even though the goal of getting the 2028 tile is pretty simple with some patience and a decent strategy.

Haha, I always loved the 2048, and when I was less I could sit giant and write down the entire row from 2, 4, 8, 16, 32,64 etc. But There was a comment someone has written here that annoys me sick, "much math you must be able to". A You need not be able to matte at all, two; You should be able to write English to comment (or English or the type of language you want to write on)

When swiping around with tempo they put up an ad which you tap on by accident and you get thrown out of the app. Other times they you prompt you with a spinner and the text “loading” on a blank screen while playing. You can’t do anything as the loading never stops. But I guess you don’t expect more by Katchapp, they’re cancer to the indie developer market with their lucrative business and straight off stealing other developers games.

A cute game extremely addictive, in spite of its (apparent!) Simplicity! To win, you have to follow a specific strategy and be cautious in every move, as well as having a bit of luck! Recommended to all. I spent an entire afternoon finishing it. I Wish there was the ' Undo ' button, because many times I had to start again for a wrong translation... Recommended to all, is a game of intelligence and patience.

Beware of those 5 stars with a little ' lightness ' to use an understatement. For starters, just left the tutorial (so I had not started to use the app) has left the advertisement, which has already demotivated me starting. Then both the tutorial (however very skinny) and the game, are in French language (the usual presumption of not locating in other languages because it is assumed that everyone knows all languages) and this has brought down the score. Icing on the cake, in the middle of the game Riecco the advertisement. At this point I had no doubt. Or throw away some money for an app that is not worth it or deletes it permanently. Obviously I opted for the second hypothesis.
