  • Unpredictability is killing me! Sep 21, 2017

    By Chloe4|\|N
    Good game, the app is fine, the adds don't bother me-they don't cause a crash and you just exit out of them. My problem is the unpredictability that only happens when you're right on the verge of getting a higher tile. Once you hit a new tile, that possibly took months or years-then you can hit it almost every try after that. It's not that your skill drastically increased, only that the game FINALLY let you. For instance, I'll only be 1024 away from my goal tile when suddenly I have to swipe up because the game decides to be unpredictable. Then a number (90% of the time) appears under my highest tile. Then it gives me a four instead of a two, which of course doesn't match, and just like that-poof. The game is lost. I don't give up then, but I'm again irritated at the unpredictability. It's not a learning game at that point. It's chance. Or better yet, a sick sense of humor by the developers. It's not poor planning by the player. Okay, most times that is the problem, but a few times-it's not. You'll play perfectly to the strategy that works all up until suddenly the game starts changing it up for no reason, and with no purpose other than to make you loose. I actually like this about the game-but not after a year or more of being stuck on the same tile.

  • Best Mobile Game Since Snake. Aug 20, 2016

    By santos.julian.j
    Although the mechanics may seem simple those that sink their teeth into the game find that it is truly iconic and will stand the test of time. With mobile games that devour upwards of a gigabit of memory for half of the replay ability, 2048 really masters the line of strategy, luck, challenge and accessibility. I've been a fan of this game since it's inception and it has lived a long life on my phone which happens to be longer than some phones. When people refer to the great mobile games of the era, I vision seeing 2048 up there with classics like Snake, Solitaire and Tetris. My hat goes off to the 2048 team for continuing to update their game about 5 years after it's first major debut. I look forward for what lies ahead for 2048 as it continues to live on my phone.

  • Almost my favorite Feb 20, 2019

    By PanzaMom
    The great: They say it’s fun and relaxing, and it really is. When you get into the zone, and your analytical brain turns off, you swipe and swipe with no interruption for ages. I know some people will complain that the game “won’t” give them what they need when their tiles get high. But working within the increasingly crowded board is the whole point. Going for incredibly high scores is only one goal. Personally, my purpose is to enjoy the game, and I do – every single time. The good: Challenges provide a nice switch from the regular goal of a high score. There are ads, but they are quick and do not pop up during play, just between games and at sign-on. The imperfect: The only reason it’s not my fave is that it doesn’t save my high scores most of the time. Yeah, I know I said I play for the joy, and I do ... but I still want to know my best at a glance. I think the highest score listed is right, but it only holds three, and two are very, very outdated. Still, I love it and recommend it to just about everyone.

  • An awesome game, but the Ads!!! Jul 13, 2019

    By #Tweet Tweet
    This is such an awesome game, but the ads!! Every time I open the game: ad. Every time I lose: 30 second ad I can’t skip. I want to turn on airplane mode to stop them, but then the app lags and I can’t move the tiles. Now, the good parts of this game: I love the sound of the merging tiles, it is just relaxing. I am bad at this game, and my high score was 512 with some 128s. To the developers: great game, but please cut down on the ads. If not, just make it so you can skip them. To people downloading this app: If I were you, I’d think twice on getting this app. It’s great, but if you don’t want the ads, and you don’t want to turn on airplane mode, then maybe not download this app? But it’s a great game, I recommend it.

  • Fun with pleasant design but intrusive ads Mar 3, 2020

    By eucharin
    I really enjoy how intuitively the app works but ads have started to pop up on a lag so you’ll start a game and then mid move the ad pops up and your move will be considered a click that’ll send you to the App Store. It’s a whole mess; I wouldn’t mind ads otherwise cuz like I -get- it, you know? But the way they’re being carried out is really messing up the whole experience for me (I can count the number of reviews I’ve written on one hand but the ads singularly drove me here in this case). Move their location, make ‘em less obstructive/ ‘mandatory viewing’, and/or incentivize watching them for some type of reward and you’ll create a better experience for players.

    This game used to be my favorite for years, I had always loved it, but now out of nowhere the entoregame is FILLED with ads, ads at the bottom and side of the screen, before and after EACH GAME, but the worst part is getting ads in the middle of the game, not to mention that my device is pretty recent, and I get INSANE lag from having 5 ads on my screen and more popping up every 45 seconds, maybe I could give this 3 or 4 stars if the ads get toned down, but I won't think of this game the same.

    i’d like to start this review by saying that this developer is not the original creator of the 2048 game and it’s a little off putting to me to see this developer profiting off of a copied idea with not many changes. that said, the amount of ads on this app are ridiculous. every time you open the app, you’re faced with an ad. when you click to close it, it reopens, or another ad is presented. you are also presented with ads when you lose the game. so, not only does the user get frustrated when they lose the game, that frustration is then compounded when the user is presented with an ad that takes many clicks to close. the padding on the X button on the ads is also ridiculously small, and if you click anywhere on the ad, even seemingly ON the X button, it will take you to the app store, or close and reopen the same ad. basically, this is more of an ad platform than a game experience and i will be deleting 👋🏼

  1. Play at home, on the bus or at school! No matter where you go, always have something fun to do to pass the time
  2. Keep your brain stimulated with healthy entertainment that helps you improve your ability to strategize and make fast decisions
  3. Kids and adults alike will love testing their skills and competing to see who can solve each puzzle the fastest

  • THE legend Jun 30, 2018

    By EpicFoxx
    If you guys saw my review on the new 2048, it is terrible, but this 2048, I don’t why I didn’t even bother making a review on this, it’s so awesome, easy to understand, controls are ez, it’s just awesome, so stop hating and start LOVING. This has got to be the best game by Kechapp, because they say it’s a legend and a famous game, which it is, but the thing I want to see on this game is goals or missions that you have to complete to get coins, and use those coins to get skins like in the other 2048, that is only an opinion, you don’t have to do it, do it or don’t, I don’t care, I just hope you guys make more games 😘 later

  • this how this brilliant, totally awesome game works: Mar 10, 2018

    By Beejammie
    this game is brilliant and really hard to explain, but I’ll give it a shot. when you swipe left, the tiles lock into rows, and all the rows move leftward, sliding against each other until the left-most tile of each entire row butts up against the left wall. any two tiles that touch on their LEADING edges as they move will add together; so if you swipe a 2 and a 2 to the left, they will merge into one 4. every time you move the board, a new tile pops up, a 2 or a 4. same idea for swiping right, as well as for up and down. the goal is to swipe two 1024 tiles together. so every move, you decide which direction to swipe in order to push a tile into another of the same. And, there’s no glitter, bubble-popping sounds, hearts, cutesy animation, or positive reinforcement phrases erupting all over on the screen. have you noticed lately that a-lot of stuff geared toward women is suitable for 5 yo girls? give it a shot, really. DOOO-IIIIT

  • It’s a really good game Jun 22, 2019

    By a thwee yeer owld
    I’ve been playing since I was nine years old and the game is so addictive. I love the smoothly slidable blocks and creative color. But obviously I like the complication and enjoyment a lot. I recommend buying it if you don’t mind as much ads. It has a bit of ads but quite less compared to the games I’ve played recently. I’d say this game is counted as an older game and is more enjoyable for elders and young children. It Exercises Their young/old brain. Since it is an older game, the “teens” don’t really play it anymore but I think it’s quite fun and I can count myself as a teen I guess. I mean I am 14. Anyways I really recommend it for you!❤️🤗🤗

  • Loved it until it became prone to crashes Jan 2, 2018

    By r3steg
    I added this game several years ago when it first came it and recently started playing it again. It’s a great game but when taking a break and returning, the game started crashing thus losing all progress! Twice now I was at 4096 and stopped due to a time constraint. As soon as I opened it back up it crashed and I had to do all that work again! Frustrating to say the least. If this keeps up I’ll be deleting. But I still give it four stars because it can get very challenging the higher you go. Fix the new crashing issues and it gets five stars.

  • More Things Jun 13, 2018

    By Cam_Monster5
    I wish they had several different game modes. I would enjoy if one of the game modes moved by one block not the whole thing. I would also like if another moved by each row. One other suggestion is that you had two ways of making high scores; one about how it is now, and the other is the highest number that you got to. The last thing is, is that there should be things to unlock. For example, different colors, tiles, backgrounds, and so on. Besides all of that, this is a really fun game. I enjoy it so much.

  • Good, but.... Jan 1, 2018

    By XxFluffyPugzxX
    The app is fun, more than likely addicting. Me and my buddies at school are always off in the corner playing this game online on our iPads. It is a very challenging and fun game but there’s one thing that makes everyone angry. It’s when you get to the point when you are at a high number. Then you have to swipe because the game is being unpredictable. And when you do swipe, it decides to play a sick little trick on you, making the number not capable of going into another one. Do you do this on purpose? Cuz maybe you shouldn’t. It’s making everyone disappointed and irritated. It’s annoying and you should really address the issue. Thank you for your time.

    Used to play this on an iphone, it was waaaay smother there. The moving of the blocks isnt as smooth in android. The worst part about it is the squares. After playing a few games, somehow the size of the boxes changed due to some glitch and now half of the last box on the right cant be seen. In other words, the boxes became too big and dont fit the screen.

  • It’s okay if the ads don’t bother you. Nov 23, 2018

    By Nickpickshisnose
    I like this game. It’s a great game to play when you’re on your lunch break or when you’re waiting in line for something. The only negative thing i have to say is that the ads are dumb. Half the time the ads won’t let you exit out back to the game and they pop up in an annoying way like right when the game starts. I wish they would do the world a favor and make it completely free. It’s not like this game is hard to program. It’s like trying to make money off a tic tac toe game.

    It was great until an absurd number of ads were included. An ad at the beginning of the game, plus another at the 2048 tile seems reasonable. An ad every time I create a 512 tile feels greedy.

    If I was ever in a spot where I needed something to occupy a little bit of time I would choose this game. And then they started messing with it. See, I figured out the trick to it. Getting 2048 is pretty easy. No problem. 4096 is a challenge but I would often get it. Then they messed with it. I’m not sure how and I’m sure they will deny it but it got even HARDER. No biggie right? After all, I’ve gotten 4096. Well, the next step of 8192? has become impossible. The tiles don’t come that u need and the game ends. Crap! And on top of that? They added advertisements. The worst thing for me because I can’t stand them. So every time I loose? Another advertisement comes up. Often times I actually have the game on my phone and I still have to watch them. So it’s come time to part ways. Thanks for the great game. It added hours of enjoyment for me. Wish u didn’t feel the need of changing things.

  • Addictive game but developers insult the player Apr 23, 2018

    By dissapointed12097
    This is a very fun to play and addictive game that would be very enjoyable if the developers didn’t decide to insult the players by shoving the ads down their throats. I mean, I have nothing against ads to support a free game but when players are presented with a full screen add and the option to close it by clicking the x in the corner, it is extremely annoying that developers decided to ignore players decisions. Clicking on the x to close the ad is a well established GUI convention but instead of closing it, the game simply introduces a delay (often enough to start a new game) and then forcibly opens the App Store, showing the app from the add. This behavior is a serious breach of rules and is equal to programming a cancel button to act as an Agree button. As soon as I find a way to do it, I will raise a formal complaint with the App Store.

    Used this app for years. Suddenly you guys went full sellout & I cant play a game without 20+ popup ads. You had no need to sell out on an age-old app that happened to be the only clean 2048 without undos. Clean is subjective though, when you can't properly implement fullscreen support- the tiles are still incredibly misaligned on a phone that was flagship a year ago. Clearly you're still updating the app, as seen by the surge of annoying popup ads. Fix your game instead of making it worse.
