Aka Ironyca Stood in the Fire – gaming blog
Check out this fun, but very addictive, little browser game. If you’re bored of Bubbleshooter, this is your new drug!
How to play: Use your arrow keys to move the tiles. When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into one with double the value.
The goal: Merge the tiles until you get a tile with the value of 2048.
I’ve spent at least a couple of hours playing, and I think I’ve found a guiding principle for how to do it. I just need a little luck and a little more patience. I still haven’t achieved a 1024 tile though.
It’s a perfect format for an app game, but some of the versions I found had ads in them, and I’d rather pay for my games. However, this seems like an alternative: Google play. It’s a webview that loads the locally stored HTML files of the original game, so you can play without internet connection, and there are no ads. I haven’t tried downloading it yet though.
