The goal of the game is to get the 2048 tile, which is certainly no easy feat. You’ll start with an almost empty grid and such tiles like 2s and 4s, which you can slide in any direction to form one tile with a higher number created by adding the two numbers together. The more pairs you manage to find, the higher your score. So two 4 tiles make an 8, join two 4’s and make an 8 and so on. By creating more pairs, you can reach the infamous 2048 number tile.
