2048 All 3 in 1 includes three modes to play your favorite mathematical puzzle game. These include Classic mode where in 2+2=4, 4+4=8 and so on, Fibonacci Mode where in 1+1=2, 2+3=5 and so on, and Obstacles Mode where in 0 equals a block. Once you’ve gotten the hang of the game, you can switch between modes, and compare your achievements on Game Center.
I like this 2048 puzzle app because it reminds me of Sudoku. It took me a few weeks to get the hang of Sudoku, so it will take a while before I can easily play this one too. Math is not my strong point, but I do enjoy looking for the patterns. I started in Classic Mode because I am not that good at figuring out patterns to start with, and Fibonacci mode is full of patterns. Not difficult patterns, but it’s tricky for me.
Due to 2048 All 3 in 1 being a mathematical puzzle, there are definitely school applications for this app. Whether it’s practicing addition, looking for patterns, or avoiding the obstacles, you can play this game in many ways to enrich your learning.
I also like that kids enjoy the pattern-seeking game. My son enjoys math, but he doesn’t have the patience to sit still for very long and work through all of his homework. I don’t blame him. Repetition is rather boring, but when you start turning it into a game, then it does become more fun. He has been assigned to practice his multiplication tables which he does know, but recalling faster is always an asset. I game him this game so that he could practice his math, and then we played with dice to work on multiplication. It broke up the session, and kept him more interested in getting his practice in.

Educational uses to break up your day and continue learning
2048 All 3 in 1 is an iPhone and iPad game that allows you to practice your logic, strategy, and mathematical skills. Kids enjoy breaking up their learning with some games, and games can reinforce learning too. I enjoyed testing out this app and starting to figure out how to play the game. I also look forward to learning how to complete some puzzles! Overall, it’s an interesting concept, and one that I want to revisit when I have time to play.
