2048: By Gabriele Cirulli

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 main objective for 2048 cupcakes online is that you slide the tiles that are there on your screen in order to combine them and achieve a tile with the number 2048. However, you can still play the game even after getting the 2048 tile. Written in CSS and javascript this game was launched as an open source software by its developers.  

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.
