2048 Gameplay

The game is played out on a 4 into 4 grids so there will be 16 tiles. This is a number based game. The game will start with a number 2 present in any two tiles. You have to assimilate a similar number of tiles till you reach a goal of 2048. The same numbers of tiles have to be swapped to get the desired number of 2048.

How to play 2048 on Windows 8 application

The application can be installed from the link given below the post or it can be accessed from the Windows store. It is available in the games category. Once you own this application, you are all set to play this mind-blowing game.

After the installation is completed, you will get to see a board with 16 tiles on it. On any of the two tiles, number 2 will be displayed. From here you have to start your play. You have to swipe up, down, right, or left to move the tiles. You can use the arrow keys of your keyboard or else can swap through your mouse. You have to click and hold the left button and then drag in your desired position to merge the tile with another. Now when the same numbers touch, they merge into one and give you a new total.

Let the game be explained with an example. When a 2 numbered tile touches another 2 numbered tile, they become one and gives a new total 4 in a single tile. Go on joining the same number of tiles till you get a single tile with the number 2048. When number 2 collides with another number 2 it becomes 4, then this 4 with another 4 will become 8, then 16, 32, 64, 128, and so on until you reach the final target of 2048.
