    2048 by Gabriele Cirulli's review

    Published: 2014-05-07, by Peter Warrior.

    The official 2048 game for Android

    • Smooth design and technical performance
    • Easy to learn, hard to master
    • Free, lightly ad-supported
    • It's "too" inspired by somebody else's game

    "Two plus two are four, four plus four are eight..."

    First things first, no offense. 2048 isn't at original game at all. It's brazenly inspired by Threes!, and after quite a few tribulations, a lot of specialized media criticism and a lot of mass media misunderstanding, can be officially played on Android. By "officially" we mean that it's most likely you have already played one of the umpteen clones inspired by 2048 which at the same time was inspired by Threes! Hope it's clear.

    Anyway, gameplay is the same. You group numbers by swiping on them, looking for the mighty 2048. In Cirulli's defense, we have to say that design and performance is smooth as silk and it's no surprise 2048 became a hit, especially when its inspiration didn't release a trial, lite or free version of any kind.

    In the end, a great Math-based game, suited and recommended for all audiences.
