One of these days I caught myself playing the 2048 game for a couple of hours on my way to Rio de Janeiro 🏖️
when I suddenly had this idea:
I'm gonna remake this game from scratch with SwiftUI
and Combine and share the result with the community!
Tesla Adds ‘Super Breakout,’ ‘2048’ to Its Car Dashboards
Some Tesla owners can now play two more video games on their car dashboards.
The company is rolling out a new software update this week that adds “2048”
and “Super Breakout” to its roster of “TeslAtari” titles.
How to play '2048,' the addicting smartphone game Travis Kalanick is obsessed with
According to Bloomberg, Kalanick is using his newfound downtime to set up a family office,
spend time with his father – and play plenty of “2048.”.
But “2048” isn’t a new game – or a particularly original one at that.
It’s easy to learn, and even easier to get hooked on.
Design Is Why 2048 Sucks, and Threes Is a Masterpiece
The saga is available for anyone to follow. Last month, as the duo were
figuring out what to do about the 2048 problem, they decided to "show their work,"
giving the world an intimate look into the making of their game.
Origins of 2048: The simple puzzle game that's spawning a hundred clones
Besides its simplicity, other reasons behind 2048’s popularity is that it's free
- in terms of source and price. Cirulli has even posted the game code online
for other developers to use and customise for their own version.
There are tons of different versions and confusingly many of them have the same name - 2048.
At least a couple of variations are interesting, with some games allowing you
to go beyond 2048 and some adding a twist by only letting you join numbers
in a Fibonacci sequence.
The Threes-like puzzle game sucks you in by making it seem easy to hit the magic number.
You have a limited number of free squares, and each move introduces another
tile into the mix. But combine like numbers into their sum and you've opened up
the board for the new tile and simultaneously progressed a little further
toward your goal of making a magic 2048 one, a feat accomplished by
combining two 128's into a 256 and two 256's into a 512 and so on.
