Launched in the year 2014, 2048 is a really engaging and interesting game developed by a 19-year-old Italien web developer. The Italien web developer Cirulli developed this game in just two days as he challenged himself if he is capable of creating a game right from the beginning. To his surprise, this game became really popular with over 4 million users in less than a week.
The developed launched this game for Android and iOS devices for free as he wanted nothing from a game that he did not originally invent. There are several other games that are really similar to 2048 such as Threes.
You start the game on a 4 by 4 grid that has a few numbered tiles in the beginning. The players start the game as they move those tiles using the direction key. As the tiles are moved in a certain direction all the adjacent tiles that have similar numbers on them get added and form one single tile. The players continue this process until they are out of moves or they get a 2048 tile on the grid.
With the development of the game over the year, we now have a leaderboard and a score panel on the game that counts a player’s score and you get to compare your score with other players online as well.
The simple controls and the addictive nature of the game make it a really interesting game that players can play to pass their time.
