Test Your Mental Strength with 2048+#

2048 is one of the most popular and probably the most addicting puzzle games on the App Store. It took the puzzle frenzy gaming world by storm when it was launched a couple of years ago.

Part of the allure of this game is its simplicity. All you need to do is to merge tiles with the same number. Two numbers add up and create a new tile. Continue to add up until you reach the all-important 2048 sum. You win the game by reaching this number.

The original version offers a 4x4 grid. It will probably take several hours or a few days before you can reach the ultimate 2048 objective. But what if you can enlarge the grid by several folds? This is where 2048+# comes in.

2048+# offers improved gameplay that is obviously more difficult. That is because the puzzle is now larger with options for 6x6, 8x8, 10x10, and 12x12 grids. The sheer number of tile combinations that you need to match is mind boggling.

This app offers the same gameplay as the original. However, it will surely test the limits of your mental strength due to the sheer size of the grids. In the 12x12 grid for example, you will have to reach the two million total mark in order to win the game.

The grid board dominates the screen while the scoreboard and the best score are displayed on top. The simple game interface allows you to focus immediately on the board. The interface is clutter-free to avoid distractions.

The best feature of this 2048 puzzle app is the upgraded grid board. In the original version, you are limited to the 4x4 grid board. In 2048+#, you have an option to enlarge the board. To do this, simply tap the new game button and select the grid type from the drop down menu.

Another excellent feature of the app is the audio control. It allows you to mute the session so you can play in silent mode. This is particularly useful when you are playing in public places.
