2048 – App Review

2048 is the magic number. Apparently!

Are you a person of mathematical persuasion? 2048 is an interestingly addictive game that revolves around the swiping of tiles to achieve a number of additions that results in one tile owning the value of 2048. Got you’re interest?

You’re a numbers person, aren’t you?

I’m not particularly one for sums, I much rather mindless gaming on my time off. But when presented with a numbers app that asks less of my mental arithmetic and more of my ability to adjacently adjoin numbers of equal value then I thought, why not.

This app does not require a maths qualification.

Rather, abiding by the simple rule that two matching tiles meet to make one tile of a joined value, it seems a reasonable ask to reach the end goal of the game.

Basically, among a well designed interface you start with a number of tiles and your job is to match numbers of an equal value. Pairing numbers results in both tiles becoming one, i.e. a tile of combined value. Here’s an example: swiping a 2 against a 2 results in one tile of value 4.

Your job is to add as many tiles/numbers together as possible before ending with the number 2048. Once this number has been reached in a single tile then the game is over.

The premise doth seem simple, and rightly you may think this. But give the app a go and before long you will be left wondering how to adjoin those pesky tiles, particularly as less and less room appears for you to play with. The more you swipe, the more other tiles get in your way.

This little (and I mean little) app is available now from Google Play and is begging for a few Androiders to test the concept. Free to play, free to enjoy. Do let us know what you think!
