- Welcome to the most successful game of the year - 2048 is the internet sensation! The 19 year old Gabriele Cirulli developed the game on just one weekend to find out if he can program a game from scratch. Since this moment the game has taken the internet by storm.Playing 2048 is easy: Swipe to move all tiles from one side to another. If two tiles with the same value touch, they merge into one and add up their figures. The object of the game is to create a tile with a value of at least 2048. And if you finally manage to do so, you can try to push the limits and beat the best of the best players.
