    Let me explain...

    So numero uno prob, I have random friends that I can’t remember adding, like does it not ask your permission? and two, a friend has the game but we couldn’t play together because the multiplayer doesn’t work. I just won’t connect. And I will come into the game, and I swipe and then a random add pops up! Like what? The game is good overall, but it can get a little confusing. Like about your top five scores. So What I got my first game on this version was pretty bad and I showed it up top because it was my first game. But then I beat it and that was the top. Then I didn’t beat my top, but I did beat my original, which was second. But it didn’t get listed on there anywhere. And by now I have played more games than the five scores it says it displays, but only four are up there and the last one is that first one even though it’s been beaten numerous times. You can only get a new score up there if you beat your top score. I wish you would fix this it would really make my game play more enjoyable. Overall it is a non laggy game, and is extremely addicting and fun. But developers, please take this review into your account. I love this game and would recommend it to everybody with some patience. Just one more thing, how do people get TEN MILLION, I mean I’m pretty good at this but are these people bots? I would really like clarification! Thank you!

    Best Mobile Game Since Snake.

    Although the mechanics may seem simple those that sink their teeth into the game find that it is truly iconic and will stand the test of time. With mobile games that devour upwards of a gigabit of memory for half of the replay ability, 2048 really masters the line of strategy, luck, challenge and accessibility. I've been a fan of this game since it's inception and it has lived a long life on my phone which happens to be longer than some phones. When people refer to the great mobile games of the era, I vision seeing 2048 up there with classics like Snake, Solitaire and Tetris. My hat goes off to the 2048 team for continuing to update their game about 5 years after it's first major debut. I look forward for what lies ahead for 2048 as it continues to live on my phone.

    An awesome game, but the Ads!!!

    This is such an awesome game, but the ads!! Every time I open the game: ad. Every time I lose: 30 second ad I can’t skip. I want to turn on airplane mode to stop them, but then the app lags and I can’t move the tiles. Now, the good parts of this game: I love the sound of the merging tiles, it is just relaxing. I am bad at this game, and my high score was 512 with some 128s. To the developers: great game, but please cut down on the ads. If not, just make it so you can skip them. To people downloading this app: If I were you, I’d think twice on getting this app. It’s great, but if you don’t want the ads, and you don’t want to turn on airplane mode, then maybe not download this app? But it’s a great game, I recommend it.

    THE legend

    If you guys saw my review on the new 2048, it is terrible, but this 2048, I don’t why I didn’t even bother making a review on this, it’s so awesome, easy to understand, controls are ez, it’s just awesome, so stop hating and start LOVING. This has got to be the best game by Kechapp, because they say it’s a legend and a famous game, which it is, but the thing I want to see on this game is goals or missions that you have to complete to get coins, and use those coins to get skins like in the other 2048, that is only an opinion, you don’t have to do it, do it or don’t, I don’t care, I just hope you guys make more games 😘 later

    this how this brilliant, totally awesome game works:

    this game is brilliant and really hard to explain, but I’ll give it a shot. when you swipe left, the tiles lock into rows, and all the rows move leftward, sliding against each other until the left-most tile of each entire row butts up against the left wall. any two tiles that touch on their LEADING edges as they move will add together; so if you swipe a 2 and a 2 to the left, they will merge into one 4. every time you move the board, a new tile pops up, a 2 or a 4. same idea for swiping right, as well as for up and down. the goal is to swipe two 1024 tiles together. so every move, you decide which direction to swipe in order to push a tile into another of the same. And, there’s no glitter, bubble-popping sounds, hearts, cutesy animation, or positive reinforcement phrases erupting all over on the screen. have you noticed lately that a-lot of stuff geared toward women is suitable for 5 yo girls? give it a shot, really. DOOO-IIIIT

    This game isn't a challenge...

    This game is very fun and addicting and I love Ketchapp it is my favorite game company but this happens in a lot of there games like The Floor Is Lava and Color Switch, if you don't update the app it becomes to easy because I play it a lot. This app was sort of a challenge in the beginning and then the more I played the easier it got. Soon I jut started closing my eyes and swiping up and down. Everyone thinks ads and glitching is the problem I just think something simple could make it more complex. JUST ADD SOME MODES!!! You could do a mode where you need to get a certain amount of 4's or 124's or whatever and more that would make playing it burn a lot more time too. Ketchapp please read this and please understand I'm not a hater I love your games which is why I'm trying to help you make them better! 😃

    Almost my favorite

    The great: They say it’s fun and relaxing, and it really is. When you get into the zone, and your analytical brain turns off, you swipe and swipe with no interruption for ages. I know some people will complain that the game “won’t” give them what they need when their tiles get high. But working within the increasingly crowded board is the whole point. Going for incredibly high scores is only one goal. Personally, my purpose is to enjoy the game, and I do – every single time. The good: Challenges provide a nice switch from the regular goal of a high score. There are ads, but they are quick and do not pop up during play, just between games and at sign-on. The imperfect: The only reason it’s not my fave is that it doesn’t save my high scores most of the time. Yeah, I know I said I play for the joy, and I do ... but I still want to know my best at a glance. I think the highest score listed is right, but it only holds three, and two are very, very outdated. Still, I love it and recommend it to just about everyone.

    It’s a really good game

    I’ve been playing since I was nine years old and the game is so addictive. I love the smoothly slidable blocks and creative color. But obviously I like the complication and enjoyment a lot. I recommend buying it if you don’t mind as much ads. It has a bit of ads but quite less compared to the games I’ve played recently. I’d say this game is counted as an older game and is more enjoyable for elders and young children. It Exercises Their young/old brain. Since it is an older game, the “teens” don’t really play it anymore but I think it’s quite fun and I can count myself as a teen I guess. I mean I am 14. Anyways I really recommend it for you!❤️🤗🤗

    Unpredictability is killing me!

    Good game, the app is fine, the adds don't bother me-they don't cause a crash and you just exit out of them. My problem is the unpredictability that only happens when you're right on the verge of getting a higher tile. Once you hit a new tile, that possibly took months or years-then you can hit it almost every try after that. It's not that your skill drastically increased, only that the game FINALLY let you. For instance, I'll only be 1024 away from my goal tile when suddenly I have to swipe up because the game decides to be unpredictable. Then a number (90% of the time) appears under my highest tile. Then it gives me a four instead of a two, which of course doesn't match, and just like that-poof. The game is lost. I don't give up then, but I'm again irritated at the unpredictability. It's not a learning game at that point. It's chance. Or better yet, a sick sense of humor by the developers. It's not poor planning by the player. Okay, most times that is the problem, but a few times-it's not. You'll play perfectly to the strategy that works all up until suddenly the game starts changing it up for no reason, and with no purpose other than to make you loose. I actually like this about the game-but not after a year or more of being stuck on the same tile.

    Fun with pleasant design but intrusive ads

    I really enjoy how intuitively the app works but ads have started to pop up on a lag so you’ll start a game and then mid move the ad pops up and your move will be considered a click that’ll send you to the App Store. It’s a whole mess; I wouldn’t mind ads otherwise cuz like I -get- it, you know? But the way they’re being carried out is really messing up the whole experience for me (I can count the number of reviews I’ve written on one hand but the ads singularly drove me here in this case). Move their location, make ‘em less obstructive/ ‘mandatory viewing’, and/or incentivize watching them for some type of reward and you’ll create a better experience for players.

    This used to be awesome

    If I was ever in a spot where I needed something to occupy a little bit of time I would choose this game. And then they started messing with it. See, I figured out the trick to it. Getting 2048 is pretty easy. No problem. 4096 is a challenge but I would often get it. Then they messed with it. I’m not sure how and I’m sure they will deny it but it got even HARDER. No biggie right? After all, I’ve gotten 4096. Well, the next step of 8192? has become impossible. The tiles don’t come that u need and the game ends. Crap! And on top of that? They added advertisements. The worst thing for me because I can’t stand them. So every time I loose? Another advertisement comes up. Often times I actually have the game on my phone and I still have to watch them. So it’s come time to part ways. Thanks for the great game. It added hours of enjoyment for me. Wish u didn’t feel the need of changing things.

    Addictive game but developers insult the player

    This is a very fun to play and addictive game that would be very enjoyable if the developers didn’t decide to insult the players by shoving the ads down their throats. I mean, I have nothing against ads to support a free game but when players are presented with a full screen add and the option to close it by clicking the x in the corner, it is extremely annoying that developers decided to ignore players decisions. Clicking on the x to close the ad is a well established GUI convention but instead of closing it, the game simply introduces a delay (often enough to start a new game) and then forcibly opens the App Store, showing the app from the add. This behavior is a serious breach of rules and is equal to programming a cancel button to act as an Agree button. As soon as I find a way to do it, I will raise a formal complaint with the App Store.

    Ads are the worst!

    These ads are the worst I have experienced on any game. It frustrates me so much that this is the only app I have ever bothered to review. I had this game on my phone with a different carrier and it was fine, they would have a silent ad before/after a game, and it was easy to exit out of. However, since I got my new phone on Verizon, the ads keep popping up all the time - before and after, as well as throughout the game. The worst part is that the ads pop up with full volume (despite my game settings being set to silent), and then it freezes with full volume for a sec while I frantically try to stop it. I didn’t have this issue when on TMobile so I am thinking the cell carrier has something to do with it, so I would strongly advise you to skip this game if you have Verizon.

    ads completely ruin the experience

    i’d like to start this review by saying that this developer is not the original creator of the 2048 game and it’s a little off putting to me to see this developer profiting off of a copied idea with not many changes. that said, the amount of ads on this app are ridiculous. every time you open the app, you’re faced with an ad. when you click to close it, it reopens, or another ad is presented. you are also presented with ads when you lose the game. so, not only does the user get frustrated when they lose the game, that frustration is then compounded when the user is presented with an ad that takes many clicks to close. the padding on the X button on the ads is also ridiculously small, and if you click anywhere on the ad, even seemingly ON the X button, it will take you to the app store, or close and reopen the same ad. basically, this is more of an ad platform than a game experience and i will be deleting 👋🏼
