# 2048

### The principles of 2048

2048 is a brain-teaser puzzle game that requires you to slide tiles on the board. Merge two identical tiles to create a new one and get a high score.

In this game, you need to slide the tiles to the left, right, up, or down to merge them. Like Cubes 2048, this game also requires you to combine two tiles of the same number to create a new one. The number of the new tile will be the product of two numbers of two tiles that you attempt to merge. Moreover, the points you get will be equal to the number of the new tile. Attempt to combine as many tiles as possible to gain the highest possible score. You must build your own strategies before sliding the tiles. If the board is full of tiles, the game is over.

How to control: Hold the left mouse button or press Arrow Keys to move the blocks.

### Kinds of grids

At the start of the game, you are allowed to choose between three kinds of grids. They are Classic, Big, and Bigger. The Classic grid has 4 cells in a column and 4 cells in a row. Meanwhile, the Bigger grid has 5 cells in a column and 5 cells in a row. Finally, the Bigger grid has 6 cells in a column and 6 cells in a row. Keep in mind the smaller the board is, the more difficult the game is. Therefore, if you are a beginner, I recommend you try playing the Bigger grid first. Then, challenge yourself with smaller grids.

This game was developed by Solebon LLC and released on March 9, 2014. Featuring challenging gameplay and attractive graphics, it attracts many players from all over the world. Try this game now and let's see what your highest score is. The time in this game is not limited, so you can play it for hours without boredom.

## Effective strategies to get a high score in 2048

### Think carefully before you slide the tiles

Before sliding the tiles, you need to look carefully and find two adjacent tiles of the same number first. You should avoid moving the tiles while there is no combination between two similar tiles. This will help to decrease the number of tiles on the board and create many empty spaces. Moreover, I think bringing the tiles on the board to the corners to match is also an effective tactic. If you do that, the new tiles will be transferred to the middle of the board and combined. Do your best to make as many matches as possible to gain many points.

### Attempt to create as many tiles with a higher number as possible

You will not create a 2048 tile if you just focus on merging the 2-numbered or 4-numbered tiles. You need to prioritize combining two tiles with a higher number as soon as you see them. Attempt to decrease the number of small-numbered tiles on the board. Your objective is to create two 1024 tiles. Then, match them to get a 2048 tile.
