Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is 2048 Prime?
2048 Prime is a fun and easy to use puzzle game. Just click on the toolbar popup icon to open the game. According to Wikipedia, 2048 is played on a 4×4 grid table, with numbered tiles that slide when a player moves them using keyboard arrow keys (on desktop PCs) or by touch (on mobile devices). In every turn, a new tile will randomly appear in an empty spot on the board with a value of either 2 or 4. Tiles slide as far as possible in the chosen direction until they are stopped by either another tile or the edge of the grid. If two tiles of the same number collide while moving, they will merge into a tile with the total value of the two tiles that collided. The resulting tile cannot merge with another tile again in the same move. The goal is to create a tile with the number 2048.
2. How can I move the tiles?
On a desktop PC or Mac, you can use keyboard arrow keys to move the tiles (up, down, left and right). Alternatively, there are built-in arrow keys in the 2048 window (bottom), which you can use to move the tile by a mouse click. On a mobile device, either the built-in keyboard or touch can be used for moving the tiles.
