2048 is a popular sliding puzzle game written by 19 year old Italian designer Gabriele Chirulli based on 1024 which in turn was based on Threes! . The objective of 2048 is to slide numbered tiles on a grid to combine them to create a tile with the number 2048. HOW TO PLAY: - Use arrow keys to move the tiles (drag to move on mobile). - When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into one! - Join the numbers and get to the 2048 tile!
