2048 is a popular cross-platform game that is both simple and fun at the same time. It is a game that involves both math and puzzle at the game. The game is a good choice to kill off your time and boredom.

The game involves merging tiles with the same power of 2, which combine and give you some of both tiles. For example, you combine two tiles with the value 2 to give you the tile with the value 4 and you combine two tiles with value 4 to get the tile with value 8 and so on.

The objective of the game is to combine the tiles to reach the 2048 tiles which is the 11th power of 2. It may sound easy to reach the 2048 tile but it is not and sometimes, it can take a lot of tries before you are able to reach the target.

It is a single-player game and sounds really simple but it can get frustrating at times. The main objective of the game is to reach the 2048 tile but the game does not end when you reach 2048 instead, it keeps on going and you can create more multiples of 2 but the game gets very hard after the 2048 tile.

Most players are unable to go beyond 2048 but you can try out your luck and aim for tiles higher than 2048.
