How to play the 2048 game ?

2048 is part of the online games, it's an easy and fun puzzle game. Even if you don't like numbers, you will love the dynamics of the game.

It is played on a 4x4 grid using the directional arrows or the W, A, S, D keys on the computer. On a mobile phone, it is played with the fingers.

Use the directional arrows on a computer or the fingers on a mobile phone to move tiles of different colors and values with a scrolling animation.

During a move, all the tiles on the board are moved in the same direction until they meet the edges of the board or another tile in their path.

When two tiles of the same number are side by side, they can merge and form a new tile of double value (e.g., two tiles of value « 2 » give a tile of value « 4 »).


With each move, a tile with a 2 or a 4 appears random in an empty square.

The 2048 game is simple at the beginning, but becomes more and more complex, due to the lack of space to move the tiles, and possible handling errors, which can lead to a blockage of the tiles and thus the end of the game in the more or less long-term, depending on the skill of the player.

The game is won when a tile with the value « 2048 » appears on the grid, hence the name of the game « 2048 ». However, you can continue to play with tiles of higher values (4,096, 8,192, etc). The maximum tile that can be reached is theoretically « 131,072 ».

The maximum possible score is 3,932,156, and the maximum theoretical number of moves is 131,038. When the player has no more possible moves (no more empty spaces or adjacent tiles with the same value), the game ends.


The R key is used to restart a new game.

This game is compatible with mobile phones and you can play it on any device - iPhone, iPad or any other smartphone.

The game has been described as the most addictive thing on the internet and will dethrone the « Candy Crush and Flappy Bird » games.

The 2048 game has been programmed by Gabriele Cirulli a 19-year-old independent Italian developer, based on the 1024 game of Veewo Studio and the game Threes! by Sirvo.
