Two-Zero-Four-Eight! Who Do We Appreciate!? @2048_game!
Have you been a victim of the latest gaming craze? After Flappy Bird flew off the map in March, the gaming community was in need of another easy-to-play addiction to take its place. Never fear, folks! 2048 is here.
2048 is a single-player online and mobile game created during the same month Flappy Bird met its abrupt demise. The object of the game is to simply slide tiles on a grid to combine them to create larger numbers. The ultimate goal is to create a tile with the number 2048 (which might also represent the year in which I will fully understand a working strategy).
Due to the game’s sudden popularity, an open-source tool was created for users to design their own versions of the game. Popular varieties include Sherlock, Doctor Who, Joey Graceffa, and the infamous Doge.
I believe one of the reasons this game has become so popular is because it can be enjoyed by nearly everyone. People who play it feel a sense of accomplishment seeing the smaller numbers match and think, ‘Hey, I can do this too!”
Have you played 2048? If so, feel free to leave any tips and suggestions in the comments for the digitally challenged, like myself.
