2048 --- Flash Ryview

2048, by Gabriele Cirulli.

I want to start off with a disclaimer: This game is supposedly a clone of another game (1024) and I'm not sure where it all traces back to. I'm ryviewing the particular version I played.

2048 is a quick little puzzle game. It involves stacking like numbers (in powers of 2) to reach a tile worth 2048. Very easy to understand, very easy to hop into.

The powers of 2, hooray!

I go back and forth about how complicated I like my flash games to be, but usually I appreciate the simple, straightforward diversion games. A game like this is nothing but pure time-passing, and it's very satisfying because of it.

The version I played had a very plain webpage, but the tiles were nicely colored and the movement was pretty. I was pleased enough with the visuals that I was happy to stare at the screen and play the game start to finish without so much as a side glace away.

And, keeping my disclaimer in mind, I've played games similar in nature to this before, but I don't think I've played anything exactly like it. The concept is fairly cool, and as I already mentioned, I think it's a very simple while still being very compelling.

To get that 2048 tile, it was created from 1024 "2" tiles.

There isn't a whole lot else to say. It's a short game, I don't see a whole lot of replay value, but beating it can me moderately challenging, so that might offer a few playthroughs. All in all, I definitely recommend picking it up and spending 15 minutes of your life having mindless fun.

Let me know what you think of 2048!

Until next time,



  1. This type of gameplay has infinite possibilities, but I tried to find the simplest form of gameplay. The best description I've heard so far about the game is "chill-yet-challenging."

  2. The last race is like an exotic car dream list, showing off the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, Koenigsegg Agera R, Bugatti Veyron, GTA Spano, and the McLaren P1. From that angle, Need for Speed is one of the few car movies to feature exotic cars, not vintage muscle cars or tuner cars.
