2048+ is available for free.
Main features of 2048+ for Windows 8:
When you launch 2048+ for the first time, you will see the gameplay screen of the app itself. The app has no long introductions or tutorials, and this helps to keep the app lightweight and minimalistic at the same time. The gameplay screen can be seen in the below screenshot.
You will see stuff like your score and the best score that you have made at the top of the screen. To club two numbers together, simply click and drag the same number tiles over each other. If the number tiles aren’t the same, the tiles will still move around, but they will not combine, and you will get a new number tile in the remaining part of the grid. With each combination of two tiles, you get a new tile. This helps to keep the game moving. The game tiles start diminishing when you get closer to the final score of 2048. For instance, if you are left only with two 1024 tiles, no new tiles will appear on the grid, and you can just group them together to make a score of 2048, but be warned, getting to the stage of two 1024 tiles can be time consuming, tiring and may take a lot of time as well!
You can move the tiles around using your mouse and clicking and dragging the tiles around. You can also use touch input on tablets or other devices which support touch, and hence the app is perfect for all types of devices. You can see my game in progress in the below screenshot.
The app allows you to Undo your last played move, Restart your game or to get more Undo opportunities via the buttons at the top of the screen. The game is over when the grid is full and there is no way to move around the number tiles anymore. The game then shows you your final score with a game over screen. This basically wraps the main features of the 2048+ game for Windows 8 and 8.1 device.
2048+ is a well designed and neat game for Windows 8 and 8.1 which will put your brain to the test. The app is good for all age groups, as it will help you to hone your mental math skills as well as give a bump to your IQ. The best part is that the game is available for absolutely free from the App Store!
I rate the game a 5 out of 5!
