2048 Classic

1.0 for Android

The description of 2048 Classic

2048 mania has swept the world (though by the time you read this it may have dissipated, such is the fickle nature of viral gaming in a post-Flappy Bird landscape).

The game, inspired by an equally popular game called ‘threes’, is simple in aim: you move tiles around a grid, combining those with matching numbers to create a new tile with a larger number, and so on until you reach the 2048 tile.

*** Warning: The goal of the game is to create a tile with 2048 value. It sounds easy but the game is actually addictive and frustrating.


Swipe (Up, Down, Left, Right) to move the tiles. When two squares with the same number touch they merge into a one tile or a larger number (2 + 2 = 4, 4 + 4 = 8, and so on). When 2048 tile is created, the player wins!

Do not use the arrow up key unless there are no other moves left.

Keep the high valued tiles at the bottom row and arrange the tiles from highest to lowest from left to right and right to left in the second last row.

When the highest tile value is in the left bottom corner, do change its position.

The Web site advises players to keep calm and try not to make unplanned moves. Keep the tiles in the corners and watch out for the new tiles.

According to The Daily Dot reporter Neil Shader shares a "definitive guide to win 2048" online.
Build numbers side to side.

Collapse upwards.

Focus on a corner.

Build chains.

Be lucky.

Never swipe down.

"So that's what I know. It's not a fool-proof strategy, but by using the Mancini Technique of swiping side-to-side, collapsing upwards, and focusing on long chains, you can set yourself up for nice long chains that can lead to fame and glory," Shader claimed.

2048 is made by an Italian Web Developer Gabriele Cirulli who claimed he created the game in roughly 48 hours.
