Another (small) Addiction

2048.

Who would have thought one little number would cause so much frustration???

It’s been a while since we did a tablet game review so, here it is!

2048

We were chatting about this on twitter a couple of weeks ago so I thought I’d write up a short post about the game. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros

  • Free from the app store
  • No facebook or real money needed for progression
  • Improves skills – it’s a strategy game
  • Super simple to use, even older kids could play it

Cons

  • Extremely addictive!!

This little game is all about matching pairs of numbers by swiping up or down, which eventually add up to 2048. For example: match two 2’s, which makes 4. Match two 4’s which make 8. Match two 8’s which make 16 etc. The catch is, every time you move a number, a new one is created so you need to keep matching. If all the squares in the grind fill up, you loose.

2048 2

My highest score is about 7000 points, which equates to making the number 1,024. I haven’t yet completed the game.

  1. I’ve been playing it for a couple of months now and I fear I will never complete it. And yes, very very addictive. One of those “okay, just ONE MORE time….” things.
