2048 has sky rocketed in the recent days to one of the top games on AppStore and even the Editor’s at Apple seems to acknowledge it by featuring them this week. This number game is based on the basic mathematical operation of addition but is addictive in the powers of two. Though the gameplay sounds simple, it is unlikely that you’ve scored the winning 2048 tile even once and you’ll be comforted to know that you’re not alone. Not at all alone, in fact!
Luckily, some of those crazy gamers who’ve played it like a million times, have come up with certain tips and tricks which will help you to get the 2048 tile easily. We cannot show a step by step guide as each game sessioin is different and random. But we can bring to you a set of strategies shared by Pictures of Nepal and Daily Dot, which can help to reach the 2048 tile without breaking a sweat.
2048 Tips and Tricks
Strategy 1 – Never swipe up, unless there is no other move.
Strategy 2 – Build smaller numbers side by side and collapse to bigger digits by swiping down.
Strategy 3 – Try to keep the largest tile at the left bottom corner. Arrange the tiles in descending order from left to right in this last row and then continue the descending tiles from right to left in the second last row.
Strategy 4 – Continue doing this and building chains of descending numbered tiles and with a tinge of luck, you’ll have something like the below grid. If you see something like this, you’re surely in for a win as demonstrated in the picture.
Strategy 5 – In the above example, we’ve used ‘swipe up’ as the forbidden gesture. But based on the initial few moves and tiles of each session, you can use any of the four swipes as the forbidden move and use the other strategies accordingly.
Strategy 6 – Play the game repeatedly, be patient, understand the basics, apply these strategies, abstain from loose or random moves and you’re sure to find the 2048 tile.
