Ratings and Reviews
Good balance of difficulty and no re-do make this simple and addictive little game particularly rewarding. Pay the price and ditch the ads for max enjoyment.
I only have a few games on my IOS devices and this one that I’ll be keeping for good.
Good support too. I complained about a small problem and got a response in less than an hour. Kind of amazing really.
Poor swipe detection
A slightly diagonal swipe can get interpreted as a different direction than you meant. The game needs to wait for a little bit longer swipe before moving the tiles. I've played several 2048 games, and this is the only one that misinterpreted swipes. I played this game once, up to 256, and it had already misinterpreted 2 swipes. Forget it, that's way too twitchy swipe detection for this kind of game.
UPDATE: the developer says I was touching the screen with multiple fingers, and to turn off the “extended swipe” feature. But I wasn’t touching with multiple fingers. I reinstalled the game and turned off extended swipe. The game still interprets even super-slight movement of my ONE fingertip as a full swipe. It’s still way too sensitive and interprets touch input before there’s enough input to accurately identify the overall direction of the swipe. I’m using an iPhone 6.
Developer Response ,
Try the new 3.0 version which includes updated swipe detection.
Ads ruin the experience
The game was great. I liked the colors on this better than others. Previously, the ads were bearable. They claim that the update didn’t add more ads — maybe they think that’s true, but the ads that existed before generally to upgrade the game. Occasionally there would be ads for other games. Now, there’s ads for all kinds of annoying stuff — one even tried to get me to turn on my location for 2048.
The location of the close ad button has changed. It used to be in the upper right corner consistently. Now, the close area unpredictability changes. More often than not, the click target is small. Both of these issues leads to accessibility clicking the ad.
The trickery is unacceptable. I’ve deleted this game from my phone
