The game 2048 is a puzzle game played on a 4x4 grid. The goal of the game is to slide the tiles on the grid to combine them and create a tile with the number 2048. Each turn, the player can use the arrow keys to move all the tiles on the grid in one of the four cardinal directions (up, down, left, or right). When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into a single tile with a value that is the sum of the two tiles that were merged. For example, if a player slides two tiles with the value 2 together, they will merge into a single tile with the value 4. The game ends when the player creates a tile with the value 2048 or when the grid is filled and there are no more moves available.

# 2048 – Player’s Guide

2048 is a game where you combine two identical numbered tiles in order to gain a double-numbered tile until you reach the value 2048 or even higher. You start with two tiles, with the lowest possible number available is two. Then you will play by combining the tiles with the same number to have a tile with the sum of the number on the two tiles.

## How to play the Game

- Using the arrow keys to start by pushing the tiles to one corner of the square. Placing tiles together in one corner gives you a higher chance to move tiles with the same number closer together. You can use one of the four corners of the box, top left, top right, bottom left, and bottom right. The square at the edge of the corner you chose should contain the highest number so it won’t get in your way while you combine other tiles.
- Never place tiles with high numbers in the center of the box. Doing so will make it harder for you to combine other tiles because your tile with a higher number on it will block other tiles with lower numbers that are appearing.
- Start with the tiles with small numbers on them. Let the tiles with high numbers on them stay in one corner while you are combining the tiles with smaller numbers. Then the score will increase as time passes by.
- Use the boxes that are seen beside the corner you are using to keep the tile with the highest number in order to make it easier to combine them together.
- Don’t rush in combining tiles with high values. This might scatter the tiles you are keeping aside and make it harder to combine a lot of tiles. Keep combining squares with small values until you reach your goal.

2048 is a popular puzzle game that is played on a 4x4 grid. The objective of the game is to slide numbered tiles on the grid to combine them and create a tile with the number 2048. However, the game is won when a tile with the number 2048 is created, not necessarily when the player reaches the number 2048.

Here are the steps to implement 2048:

- Create a 4x4 grid of squares, each with a value of zero.
- Randomly generate a tile with a value of 2 or 4 in an empty square on the grid.
- When the player makes a move, slide all of the tiles on the grid in the chosen direction (left, right, up, or down) as far as possible. When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into a tile with the sum of the two tiles' values.
- If the move resulted in any tiles being merged, generate a new tile with a value of 2 or 4 in an empty square on the grid.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the player can no longer make any moves or has created a tile with the value 2048.
