If you have not heard about 2048, one of the most addictive games, it is not too late. 2048 is a very simple game to get started.  You will see a 4×4 grid/cells and all you need to do is “Use your arrow keys to move the tiles. When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into one!”

And for every move a tile is randomly populated with 2 or 4. And the goal is to create the number 2048 by merging numbers on tiles. Although it is easy to start, winning the game is difficult. After certain point, you will left with no empty cells and the game will be over.
