I was going around Facebook and I saw this game titled 2048. Out of curiosity, I clicked on it. It is an interesting game. You get a 4x4 grid with 2 initial tiles that may be 2 or 4. The objective is to combine tiles with the same number by pressing the arrow keys to move the tiles. Every time you move, another tile appears containing a 2 or 4. If 2 tiles would collide and have the same number, they combine to the next power of 2. The objective is to combine enough tiles to get to 2048. You lose when the 4x4 grid fills up and you have to legal moves.
So far the farthest I've had is a 512, a 256, and a 128.
Do you guys think that it is possible to get to 2048? This game is really tough since the new tile comes up at a random spot, and sometimes you get similar tiles but you can't combine them since it's tough to navigate the tiles the way you want to since new ones pop up at random spots.
If the new tiles appeared at a fixed spot, then I think it is possible since you have 16 squares. Assuming that one tile is already 1024 and you already have a 512 tile, you'll only need a new 2 tile that would go on to 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 258, then 512.
So somehow, you need to play perfectly - every new tile is used so when you get to the higher powers of 2, the new tiles that would appear would be used almost immediately.
