Once you start, you can never stop playing 2048. It is a puzzle sort of game that has a simple goal: get the 2048 tile. The catch is, you only have a 4×4 grid to get 2048 in.
It can be played on all mobile devices and on various websites on laptops or computers. The original creator of 2048 is Gabriele Cirulli. The game can only be played by yourself, unless you have friends sitting around you helping.
The game is fairly simple, but the difficulty rises as a new tile fills up a space on the grid. With enough practice, you will be able to recognize tiles and match them easily.
In 2048, you must match similar tiles and eventually have two tiles combine to get 2048. Each time you swipe, a new 2 or 4 tile is added to the board, so be careful on how much space you have! Two 2 tiles add up to a 4 tile, two 4 tiles add up to an 8 tile, etc. On mobile devices, you swipe to match tiles, and on laptops or computers, you use the arrow keys. The only competition you have is against yourself, each round trying to beat your highest score and reach the 2048 tile. On some 2048 sites, you may import images to create your own version of 2048.
Because there are only tiles and numbers, the graphics are very good and the text is easy to read. There is a small sound effect when you match two tiles together, and in my opinion, it gets annoying after awhile. Overall, the graphics and sound seem to be made very well.
I really like the concept of getting to the 2048 tile by matching similar tiles. Even though the sound is sometimes annoying, it is easy to ignore or mute. A pro about this game is that almost anyone can play, but is easier to understand the older you get. A con is how the grid is small and it is hard to combine tiles when it starts to get full. Considering all the above, I would rate this game a 9/10
