2048 is an addictive puzzle game with sliding tiles. The original game first appeared online in 2014, and was created by Gabriele Cirulli, who was 19 years old at the time. The aim of the game is to combine tiles with matching numbers on them. The ultimate goal of the game is to merge the numbers until you reach tile with the number 2048 on it. The game has an appealing minimalist design, and is suitable for players of all ages and skill levels.
