Two-Zero-Four-Eight! Who Do We Appreciate!? @2048_game!

unnamedHave 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).

Wow. Much numbers! Many confuse.

Wow. Much numbers! Many confuse.

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!”

unnamed-1So, whether you are someone looking to pass the time or a person more advanced with your number skills, you will most likely enjoy it.

Have you played 2048? If so, feel free to leave any tips and suggestions in the comments for the digitally challenged, like myself.

I’m still addicted to Scramble. 2 years later……

The social media team was talking excitedly about the Flappy Bird / 2048 crossover: http://flappy2048.com/

A shame that 2048 got so popular by mostly copying the original game Threes… but that’s kind of what the Threes’ dev gets for ignoring the Android platform for so long when it’s overtaken iPhone in market share.

Threes was out on the iOS store for a few months before Android’s and only has (under) 9000 ratings. https://itunes.apple.com/app/threes!/id779157948?mt=8

Only a month or so on Google Play store and it has 15K ratings…
