SURFER 2048 - simple and addictive!

SURFER 2048 - simple and addictive!
2014년 4월 8일

The original 2048 online puzzle game was created by 19 year old Italian developer Gabriele Cirulli (see the original game). It instantly became a massive viral hype, probably because it is beautiful in its simplicity. Are you addicted yet?

Try our SURFER version of the game!

Be careful, it is fiendishly addictive!
The tiles show beautiful animated algebraic surfaces, getting more and more complex. The degree of the surfaces and the numbers of singularities increase as you advance playing. You can also keep playing to beat your friend’s score even after winning the game.

The tiles are created with SURFER by Bianca Violet based on equations by Oliver Labs, the modding is done by Christoph Knoth, support by Andreas Matt and Christian Stussak. To find out more about the mathematical background of the algebraic surfaces shown, check out the galleries inside the SURFER program.

2 - Sphere
4 - Cylinder
8 - Double Cone
16 - A3 Singularity
32 - Cayley Cubic
64 - Kummer Quartic
128 - Togliatti Quintic
256 - Barth Sextic
512 - Labs Septic
1024 - Endraß Octic

Hints we found useful, in order of priority:
1. Highest value should always be in a corner.
2. Build monotone rows and lines (or chains) increasing towards this corner.
3. Merge tiles with the same image to save your board from becoming over crowded.
4. Don’t forget about your basic needs like food and sleep.

Now have fun playing! 

Note: You can also create your own 2048-game using this free tool. It is based on Gabriele Cirulli’s MIT-licensed 2048, which was inspired by 1024 by Veewo Studio and conceptually similar to Threes by Asher Vollmer
