Part 1 of 2: Basic Instructions and Tips

1
Know the rules, the basics.
Step1
  • Swipe the screen up, down, left, or right to move all number tiles in that direction. Each tile moves in that direction until it hits the wall or another tile.
  • Each time you make a move, a new 2 or 4 tile appears in an empty spot in a row or column that was moved, the last move.
2
How to get to 2048. When a move causes two tiles of the same number to hit each other, they merge into one tile with a value equal to the sum of the two tiles. For instance, two 2 tiles combine into a 4. The goal is to finally create a 2048 value tile.
Step2
3
Do not make moves very quickly. If you want to get to 2048 make a move only after considering possibilities.Imagine how the board will look after you make the next move.
Step3
4
The corner tile is important. Best strategy is to build up a high number in one corner. It does not matter what corner you choose.

  • This tactic works when the corner is part of a row you keep permanently filled. This lets you move the tiles left to right without disadvantage.
5
Try to merge multiple tiles.
Step5
If you see a long row of similar tiles, merge them all

Part 2 of 2: Step by Step Strategy Guide

1
Swipe left and right several times. Start a new game, then swipe left and right rapidly. Continue until you have a couple rows of 2s, 4s, and 8s. You will be in a good position.
Step7
2
Build a higher valued tile in the corner. The goal is to keep this tile in place for as long as possible, making it slowly higher and higher.
Step8
3
Keep the row with the high tile filled. Once filled, you will be able to move left and right as much as you like mostly.
Step9
  • Keep an eye on this row, and refill gaps that appear whenever possible, without shifting the corner tile.
4
Combine small tiles.
Step10
For most of the game, it is much more important to make 8s, 16s, and 32s than a single larger number.
5
Maneuver around small, trapped tiles.say a 2 or 4 trapped between a 512 and a 32. Try to free that small tile.
Step11
Tactics for this:
  • Choose a tile next to the trapped 2 or 4 tile, and plan on how to combine it, plan multiple moves ahead.
  • Can also try to create a gap in the row with the small, trapped tile, then shift left and right until it is positioned so can be combine.
6
Move your corner tile when forced to, then return it. Try to return the high-valued tile to your chosen corner.
Step12
7
Try try again till you get to 2048.
