Cool math games 2048

2048 is a single-player, puzzle video game by Italian web developer Gabriele Cirulli. The game was released on March 9, 2014.

The object of the game is to move the numbered tiles with numbers on the grid, and connect the tiles with the same numbers, which doubles its value, to the tile with the number 2048. The 2048 video game is very similar to the Threes app released a month earlier. Cirulli himself described 2048 as a clone of the 1024 Veewo Studios app, and it was 1024 Veewo Studios that wrote in the description that it was a clone of the Threes game.


The 19-year-old Cirulli made the game in one weekend and was surprised when his game received more than 4 million visitors in just a few days. He released a free version of the game for iOS and Android in May 2014. "2048 game" becomes a viral hit. The Wall Street Journal described the game as "almost like Candy Crush for mathematical geniuses", and Business Insider called the game a "tree on steroids".


2048 is played on a gray 4×4 grid, with numbered tiles that glide smoothly when the player moves them with four arrows of keyboard or swipe with finger on a mobile or tab device. At each step, a new tile randomly appears in an empty space on a board with a value of 2 or 4. If two tiles of the same number collide as they move, they will merge into a tile with a total value of the two tiles that collided. The result tile cannot be merged with another tile in the same stroke.

The table in the upper left takes into account the user score. The user score starts at zero and increases when two tiles are combined by the value of the new tile. As with many arcade games, the best user score is displayed next to the current score.
