Often crashes
Pretty good
by AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRIIIIiii1 on 2020/05/25 16:26
This is a pretty good game, the ads are short and you can skip them, and it is pretty fun. It gets a little boring after a while, but that’s just if you play it like every day. It is a good travel game to play if you have no WiFi. Edit: Why are all these people talking about crashing? Mine hasn’t crashed once and I’ve been playing it a lot.
Fix the crashing
by amissniss on 2020/05/24 14:45
I used to love playing this game whenever I needed some absent minded time. For the past week, this app has been crashing non-stop. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the game to no avail.
Crashing
by Themostawesomepersonverrrrr on 2020/05/19 03:50
I can’t open the app:( it must be crashing. I even deleted and redownloded
Umm
by JM624x1980x on 2020/05/15 00:15
If I pay for the ads to disappear, I shouldn’t still see the ads after. Come on now..... Fix this or run me my $2.99 back!!!
Glitches
by KRL777 on 2020/05/12 16:38
Lately when the game switches to ads the screen never returns to the game but stays stuck on ad with no x to click to get rid of ad
Too many ads

Great game but crashes remove the fun
by MHE12345 on 2020/05/09 12:55
I have lost a few good games on my iPad so while I really like playing I can’t until the crashing is fixed. Too upset at losing good games.

ion even care abt the ads dude this game is so amaziinnggg
A good game, a terrible ad hijacking.
by me! cameo on 2020/05/09 09:39
A decent, simple timekilling game. I like it. Also I understand why developers want to attach some ads. They also need to earn money, but its ad keep hijacking me. I don’t know what ad I clicked. Suddenly it keeps send me to the app store. Even though I close the app store app, it does not end. So I deleted the game.
Bad programming? Or Intended
by StephanAeR on 2020/05/08 15:24
After running 100+ games with and algorithm that was created by deep learning I can honestly say this game is coded to trigger unprovable tile placement in order to make you lose.
Ads Don’t Honor Sound Settings
by Ruf One on 2020/05/07 17:08
I understand the need for ads in free apps, but if my phone is silenced, it’s often for a reason. And if an ad pops up at full volume despite my phone being silenced, it’s a problem. This is becoming more and more of a problem with ads, so a few months ago I made it my personal policy to immediately delete any app that behaves this way, give it a one star rating and add this explanation. Each time I’ve ended up with a similar app that I liked better, so it’s actually working out that this poor ad behavior is benefiting the competition by getting me to try new options.

Crashes, won’t open

Good game... but new update has terrible interruptions
by Ashizz on 2020/05/04 13:56
Love this game and have played this exact app for years... but recently the game has started to just send me directly to the App Store in the middle of the game unprompted. No ad, the game isn’t done and I’m not clicking on a banner, it will just open the App Store to random apps. It’s basically unplayable while on WiFi or data anymore from these ads. Thankfully, I can just turn that feature off.

Needs Polish, Undo and Dark Mode!!!
by ArataTakú on 2020/04/30 20:40
This is a very simple and addicting game but it has very annoying shortfalls. I‘ll update my rating upon any developer response. This 2048 version can be endlessly frustrating given the lack of a few a few features. I’d happily pay again if the following options were added… 1. Swipe anywhere mode -Allow swiping both on and off the board to control movement. -More empty space would help (#5 below) -Would help keep hands/fingers out of gameplay view 2. Undo! (single step is sufficient) 3. Dark mode!! -Allow for more comfortable use at night, in dark rooms -Current white-only design is jolting!! 4. Landscape view (especially on iPad) -iPhone: use while relaxing, resting -iPad: use while connected to keyboard case (ie. Magic Keyboard) 5. More empty space -Smaller board (little on iPhone, much more on iPad) -Minimize design of top menu/score/logo area -Would aid gameplay view while swiping (#1 above) -Would aid new landscape view UI (#4 above)
Please add dark mode!
by jedinborough on 2020/04/30 10:11
If I could take a half star, I would, but this game is too good to reduce to four. Please add a dark mode and some daily challenges.
Game fine but ads are annoying
by KJRexplorer on 2020/04/28 21:28
The game is great. My only real complaint is I have the game muted but all of the advertisements come on with the volume way up and typically someone screaming. That’s not ok to me.
Can’t manage their ads
by Rsdavis412 on 2020/04/28 17:12
Good game but crashes with the ads often. I have to delete the game then reload it to make the game open. They are dead by the success of their game
Buggy and unethical
by Nyinjewn2 on 2020/04/26 14:05
Suddenly mid-game it sends you to App Store. And although my audio was completely off in every way the app somehow managed to play an ad with sound blasting. So yeah, fun game, just beware of these irritating features.
Dishonest dev’s 👎
by RevelationAdept on 2020/04/26 12:36
Paid to have ads removed, still getting them, and not just the little banners but the obnoxious, screeching, full screen ads. This game wasn’t that interesting in the first place and certainly isn’t worth having now. Deleted.
Good game but
by rachel is the best at bedwars on 2020/04/25 16:59
I really like this game and it’s challenging for me blah blah blah. AND this is a great way to remember my powers of 2 since I’ve forgotten most of things from algebra this year during the quarantine 😅 However the frequent ads made it lose a star. I know it’s cause the game is free but they’re still annoying. All in all this review is like the other 500 but I just wanted to say, please remove some ads
Ads cleanup is required
by eduard.dudar on 2020/04/25 08:17
I don’t mind ads in general but these popping up in the middle of the move are annoying as hell. Especially when they lead you to an app that is not available in your region and system dialog pops up on top.

High scores lost
by Stupid World on 2020/04/23 02:50
The left menu is supposed to show your 5 top scores. It seems pretty random about when it will remember a score. Otherwise, good game and addictive as anything. Stop loosing my high scores and I’m good.
Missing ctrl+z
by JGnRafa on 2020/04/22 21:07
It’s good suggestion though: add a “undo” option! If you do something that you were not willing to, you could undo the last step!
Ads invasive
by lpofgt on 2020/04/22 02:36
The game itself is fine but the ads are so touch sensitive, you can’t help set them off constantly.
Nonstop ads destroy a fun game.
by Confused Vendor on 2020/04/21 17:59
The game is fine. But everytime you open the game, an ad loads two seconds into the app being open, sending you straight to the App Store. Sometimes, in the middle of a game, it just sends you to the App Store for no reason. The game isn’t to get to a tile of 2048, it’s to dodge the ads that never cease coming.
Multiple ad pop-ups
by K.r.i.s.t.a. on 2020/04/20 13:57
I enjoy playing 2048 but why is it when I am in the middle of a game that I’m directed to the App Store? I wouldn’t be bothered if it happened once or twice but it will continue opening the App Store over 10 times, I stop playing for a while when this happens out of pure frustration. Please fix!
Ads can be muted
by Mt0u812 on 2020/04/20 12:32
Also ads have started bringing me directly to App Store without even clicking on them. I like playing the game, but if ads are going to pop up with full volume, it’s a problem.
Was great before sounds enabled on ads
by Dingess on 2020/04/17 18:59
Loved this game until they started playing ads with sound enabled. Even when the game sound is muted the ads will play, making it impossible to play the game discreetly. Very frustrating.
Drains battery
by Poiuytrewqasddfghjhgd on 2020/04/17 13:54
I played for 10 minutes before bed. It ran in the background all night and drained my battery. My iPhone’s battery monitor showed that it was the only app running.
sending me spam
by kiera1616 on 2020/04/10 07:12
ur stupid app keeps sending me to the app store for random apps when i’m trying to play it like eharmony and random things so that it makes it hard to even play a game. please fix this i’m extremely disappointed
Why did I pay to remove ads for them to still be there?
by PetrosKou on 2020/04/10 01:11
I enjoy this game but I paid to remove the ads. I still see ads. If the ads don’t go away, I’d like my money back.
KEEPS TAKING ME TO APP STORE
by anyagabrielle123 on 2020/04/08 19:59
Trying to play and it’ll automatically stop and go to the App Store. Extremely annoying and doesn’t let you play while doing this. I’m not sure when this started happening but it is extremely annoying so please fix it
Favorite game
by Pink-Heart on 2020/04/08 17:27
I am absolutely addicted, it’s relaxing and challenging at the same time but after a few months of having it, the app keeps switching to a random app on the Apple store mid game and when I close out and go back to the game it would instantly switch back to another random app on the App Store. The game is unplayable now because of this bug. Please fix it
Ads ruin it
by KariiolveradiazM on 2020/04/08 07:56
It’s a fun game but getting taken to the App Store every few seconds ruined the game for me can’t concentrate when the app takes me to a a random app every 5 seconds I hate it don’t recommend
The ads are not just horrible...
by odibil on 2020/04/07 18:23
The ads become even worse, they now hinder the gameplay by popping up in the middle of playing (3 ads in a row while I was moving tiles seriously); it used show up only after the game got over, not in the middle of game. The developers now put a last straw so I finally decided to get rid of this app.
Didn’t even load the app
by SoshJam on 2020/04/07 02:43
I clicked and it prioritized the ad bar at the bottom. The app was literally just a white screen with an ad at the bottom, it cycled through five animated ads for different apps before I just gave up.

Paid to remove ads. They’re back.
by jpadot on 2020/04/05 23:58
So what’s with that huh? The ads ruin this game. I paid to remove them. Things went well for a while. Now I see adds. I restore purchases, nothing. Bad form!
The ads are getting out of hand
by Jules3291995xo on 2020/04/04 08:34
I love this game so much, and the ads haven’t been a huge issue as they’re usually just 30 seconds long. But now the banner ads are starting to interfere with the actual game, causing me to accidentally click away from the game very frequently.
Scam
by _jonhay on 2020/04/04 00:24
Paying to remove ads should not result in 20 second long ads between games. No ads should mean no ads.

by Whoever said annabelle is mean on 2020/03/28 04:55
I have to say this is a very fun game! With a simple concept that makes me relaxed! But there are quite a lot of ads here. Maybe you can stop them? Or is there a tip?
But manage the sound...!
by roakydoak on 2020/03/25 17:54
I like the game. I sometimes play in waiting room etc where I play w all sounds off, phone muted. BUT when the game ends, the ad that immediately follows plays FULL BLAST volume. How do you get around my system settings - and why would you piss players off by doing this?
Only the ads load
by Mind The Rant on 2020/03/22 23:49
I’ve played this game dozens of times on my Windows PC but thought I’d download a version to play on my iPhone 7. The only thing that runs are the ads — the game board refuses to display. Hence the 1-star rating.

Ads kill the fun
by mf88802 on 2020/03/15 02:22
App was super fun until they updated it to include a 30 second ad between every level. Makes it much more time-consuming and a lot less fun to go through.
Intrusive ads
by Pasta pasta on 2020/03/12 23:50
Ads are fine especially on free games, but this game pops up an ad in the middle of game play without any warning, which leads to accidentally tapping on the ad. Additionally, some ads do not close despite tapping the 'x' button, forcing me to close the app completely to get rid of it. (Which triggers another ad to appear the next time you open the app, and hopefully maybe that one is dismissable).
Too many ads
by groovyjayla on 2020/03/12 21:13
Can’t enjoy due to the ads and now freezes up and won’t let me play. Used to be a good game

Ads are so bad
by Deirdre140 on 2020/03/09 18:17
The ads recently are so annoying. There are multiple and hard to click out. I loved this game and it really hurt that they added multiple ads per game. I will delete my game because of this irritation.
Ads are obnoxious
by Dogwood Dingus on 2020/03/09 16:17
Imagine being bombarded by ads just opening the app, starting a run, and ending a run. There’s another version on the store that Im pretty sure is the original, even if it isn’t the ads are far less atrocious there.
Great game, Ads are annoying
by Lisagna on 2020/03/09 06:06
The ads that are included lately are so irritating, when they have sound, they cause the music you are listening to in the background to stop. Change that, please!!

MORBID ADS
by WF-10 on 2020/03/07 11:20
I like the game, but, although the ads in between games are cartoons, they are quite disturbing. A man succumbing to his demise due to a deadly gas, or explosion? Really? They couldn’t come up with something better?

I played this game years back and loved it. And I got to 2048. I reinstall for fun. And start swiping. Maybe 20 seconds in the game stops for an add. The whole point of the game is fast paced swipes and now you have to stop a couple times a minute for a game add? #failedtotheirowngreed

by tanstaafl1963 on 2020/03/04 17:40

Fun with pleasant design but intrusive ads
by eucharin on 2020/03/03 15:49
I really enjoy how intuitively the app works but ads have started to pop up on a lag so you’ll start a game and then mid move the ad pops up and your move will be considered a click that’ll send you to the App Store. It’s a whole mess; I wouldn’t mind ads otherwise cuz like I -get- it, you know? But the way they’re being carried out is really messing up the whole experience for me (I can count the number of reviews I’ve written on one hand but the ads singularly drove me here in this case). Move their location, make ‘em less obstructive/ ‘mandatory viewing’, and/or incentivize watching them for some type of reward and you’ll create a better experience for players.
Paid version still has ads

Excessive Ads
by BlockyGamer360 on 2020/02/25 05:26
It’s one the best games out there but the amount of ads now is too much every time I loose a game, a massive amount of ads start popping up and are often can’t skip them. My request to the developers is to not be much of a sell out and please, PLEASE STOP PUTTING ADS, ITS NOT WORTH IT
Ads Ads Ads!
by Klc5012 on 2020/02/23 13:44

Game randomly crashes and progress is lost. This has been happening for a while now and the developer is too lazy to fix it. Find a better version of this game. The loser who made the app deserves zero stars.
crashes, ads enough to gag a maggot
by autnagrag on 2020/02/18 14:24
It crashes. It tricks you into tapping ads. The ads blare out sound even if your device is on silent. The game is OK, if you can tolerate the adherent excrement. If you download it, chances are you will delete it soon.
Used to be a fun game

Why No Premium Version?
by Hypnotoad9641 on 2020/02/05 07:15
Why is there no premium version to get rid of the ads? Almost every free game has a premium version so there are no ads, why can't 2028 have the option? I would gladly pay $20.00 or more to stop the ads. I would even pay a monthly price. Plus the ads seem to cause the most glitches and crashes in the game. Causing me to start a game all over again because it wants to puch ads at me. Blah! Please, just release a premium mode to stop the ads.

Good game - terrible ads
by ClayMottley on 2020/02/02 14:06
The game itself is pretty fun and addictive. It’s a great game to jump in and out of throughout the day. But they play ads after every game and even if you have the game sound off, the phone on silent, THE ADS STILL PLAY AT FULL VOLUME!!! Fix this! I set my phone silent settings to cover everything. I should have to turn my phone volume down when I’ve set the app settings to silent. Ads are part of this app, they should follow the protocol of the app. Get rid of this ad feature and I’ll give it a 5-star rating.
Unpredictability is killing me!
by Chloe4|\|N on 2017/09/21 21:51
Good game, the app is fine, the adds don't bother me-they don't cause a crash and you just exit out of them. My problem is the unpredictability that only happens when you're right on the verge of getting a higher tile. Once you hit a new tile, that possibly took months or years-then you can hit it almost every try after that. It's not that your skill drastically increased, only that the game FINALLY let you. For instance, I'll only be 1024 away from my goal tile when suddenly I have to swipe up because the game decides to be unpredictable. Then a number (90% of the time) appears under my highest tile. Then it gives me a four instead of a two, which of course doesn't match, and just like that-poof. The game is lost. I don't give up then, but I'm again irritated at the unpredictability. It's not a learning game at that point. It's chance. Or better yet, a sick sense of humor by the developers. It's not poor planning by the player. Okay, most times that is the problem, but a few times-it's not. You'll play perfectly to the strategy that works all up until suddenly the game starts changing it up for no reason, and with no purpose other than to make you loose. I actually like this about the game-but not after a year or more of being stuck on the same tile.
This game isn't a challenge...
by Liv_loves_to_sing on 2017/07/08 00:05
This game is very fun and addicting and I love Ketchapp it is my favorite game company but this happens in a lot of there games like The Floor Is Lava and Color Switch, if you don't update the app it becomes to easy because I play it a lot. This app was sort of a challenge in the beginning and then the more I played the easier it got. Soon I jut started closing my eyes and swiping up and down. Everyone thinks ads and glitching is the problem I just think something simple could make it more complex. JUST ADD SOME MODES!!! You could do a mode where you need to get a certain amount of 4's or 124's or whatever and more that would make playing it burn a lot more time too. Ketchapp please read this and please understand I'm not a hater I love your games which is why I'm trying to help you make them better! 😃
Best Mobile Game Since Snake.

Although the mechanics may seem simple those that sink their teeth into the game find that it is truly iconic and will stand the test of time. With mobile games that devour upwards of a gigabit of memory for half of the replay ability, 2048 really masters the line of strategy, luck, challenge and accessibility. I've been a fan of this game since it's inception and it has lived a long life on my phone which happens to be longer than some phones. When people refer to the great mobile games of the era, I vision seeing 2048 up there with classics like Snake, Solitaire and Tetris. My hat goes off to the 2048 team for continuing to update their game about 5 years after it's first major debut. I look forward for what lies ahead for 2048 as it continues to live on my phone.
This used to be awesome
by lauray72 on 2019/03/16 17:16
If I was ever in a spot where I needed something to occupy a little bit of time I would choose this game. And then they started messing with it. See, I figured out the trick to it. Getting 2048 is pretty easy. No problem. 4096 is a challenge but I would often get it. Then they messed with it. I’m not sure how and I’m sure they will deny it but it got even HARDER. No biggie right? After all, I’ve gotten 4096. Well, the next step of 8192? has become impossible. The tiles don’t come that u need and the game ends. Crap! And on top of that? They added advertisements. The worst thing for me because I can’t stand them. So every time I loose? Another advertisement comes up. Often times I actually have the game on my phone and I still have to watch them. So it’s come time to part ways. Thanks for the great game. It added hours of enjoyment for me. Wish u didn’t feel the need of changing things.
An awesome game, but the Ads!!!
by #Tweet Tweet on 2019/07/13 23:58
This is such an awesome game, but the ads!! Every time I open the game: ad. Every time I lose: 30 second ad I can’t skip. I want to turn on airplane mode to stop them, but then the app lags and I can’t move the tiles. Now, the good parts of this game: I love the sound of the merging tiles, it is just relaxing. I am bad at this game, and my high score was 512 with some 128s. To the developers: great game, but please cut down on the ads. If not, just make it so you can skip them. To people downloading this app: If I were you, I’d think twice on getting this app. It’s great, but if you don’t want the ads, and you don’t want to turn on airplane mode, then maybe not download this app? But it’s a great game, I recommend it.
Addictive game but developers insult the player
by dissapointed12097 on 2018/04/23 15:47
This is a very fun to play and addictive game that would be very enjoyable if the developers didn’t decide to insult the players by shoving the ads down their throats. I mean, I have nothing against ads to support a free game but when players are presented with a full screen add and the option to close it by clicking the x in the corner, it is extremely annoying that developers decided to ignore players decisions. Clicking on the x to close the ad is a well established GUI convention but instead of closing it, the game simply introduces a delay (often enough to start a new game) and then forcibly opens the App Store, showing the app from the add. This behavior is a serious breach of rules and is equal to programming a cancel button to act as an Agree button. As soon as I find a way to do it, I will raise a formal complaint with the App Store.
Ads are the worst!
by EMP1987 on 2018/05/10 02:36
These ads are the worst I have experienced on any game. It frustrates me so much that this is the only app I have ever bothered to review. I had this game on my phone with a different carrier and it was fine, they would have a silent ad before/after a game, and it was easy to exit out of. However, since I got my new phone on Verizon, the ads keep popping up all the time - before and after, as well as throughout the game. The worst part is that the ads pop up with full volume (despite my game settings being set to silent), and then it freezes with full volume for a sec while I frantically try to stop it. I didn’t have this issue when on TMobile so I am thinking the cell carrier has something to do with it, so I would strongly advise you to skip this game if you have Verizon.
Abhorrent play
by Shsnebzjenmzls on 2018/07/21 19:39
I’ll preface this by stating that the Co-Op play hospitalized me for nearly a year. After a mere minute of gameplay my blood pressure reached severe hypertension and the palpitations began. Nearing the five minute mark the arrhythmia was so intense I could feel colors and vibrate through walls. I tried to cry out but what had once been joyous squeals had morphed into nothing more than a nefarious, hissing mephitis which was fumigating my very soul. At this point I knew it was over. I dropped the phone and called an ambulance. From here, the exposure was limited to about 4 seconds, but in that time I watched days pass, the seasons change, empires rise and fall. The long term severe brain damage I undoubtedly suffered only added to the effect. Today 2048 “cooperative play” is banned by all 148 signatory nations to the Geneva convention as a crime against humanity. Learn from my mistakes. Don’t be a statistic.
Fun with pleasant design but intrusive ads
by eucharin on 2020/03/03 15:49
I really enjoy how intuitively the app works but ads have started to pop up on a lag so you’ll start a game and then mid move the ad pops up and your move will be considered a click that’ll send you to the App Store. It’s a whole mess; I wouldn’t mind ads otherwise cuz like I -get- it, you know? But the way they’re being carried out is really messing up the whole experience for me (I can count the number of reviews I’ve written on one hand but the ads singularly drove me here in this case). Move their location, make ‘em less obstructive/ ‘mandatory viewing’, and/or incentivize watching them for some type of reward and you’ll create a better experience for players.
THE legend
by EpicFoxx on 2018/06/30 04:23
If you guys saw my review on the new 2048, it is terrible, but this 2048, I don’t why I didn’t even bother making a review on this, it’s so awesome, easy to understand, controls are ez, it’s just awesome, so stop hating and start LOVING. This has got to be the best game by Kechapp, because they say it’s a legend and a famous game, which it is, but the thing I want to see on this game is goals or missions that you have to complete to get coins, and use those coins to get skins like in the other 2048, that is only an opinion, you don’t have to do it, do it or don’t, I don’t care, I just hope you guys make more games 😘 later
Almost my favorite
by PanzaMom on 2019/02/20 11:50
The great: They say it’s fun and relaxing, and it really is. When you get into the zone, and your analytical brain turns off, you swipe and swipe with no interruption for ages. I know some people will complain that the game “won’t” give them what they need when their tiles get high. But working within the increasingly crowded board is the whole point. Going for incredibly high scores is only one goal. Personally, my purpose is to enjoy the game, and I do – every single time. The good: Challenges provide a nice switch from the regular goal of a high score. There are ads, but they are quick and do not pop up during play, just between games and at sign-on. The imperfect: The only reason it’s not my fave is that it doesn’t save my high scores most of the time. Yeah, I know I said I play for the joy, and I do ... but I still want to know my best at a glance. I think the highest score listed is right, but it only holds three, and two are very, very outdated. Still, I love it and recommend it to just about everyone.
this how this brilliant, totally awesome game works:
by Beejammie on 2018/03/10 20:26
this game is brilliant and really hard to explain, but I’ll give it a shot. when you swipe left, the tiles lock into rows, and all the rows move leftward, sliding against each other until the left-most tile of each entire row butts up against the left wall. any two tiles that touch on their LEADING edges as they move will add together; so if you swipe a 2 and a 2 to the left, they will merge into one 4. every time you move the board, a new tile pops up, a 2 or a 4. same idea for swiping right, as well as for up and down. the goal is to swipe two 1024 tiles together. so every move, you decide which direction to swipe in order to push a tile into another of the same. And, there’s no glitter, bubble-popping sounds, hearts, cutesy animation, or positive reinforcement phrases erupting all over on the screen. have you noticed lately that a-lot of stuff geared toward women is suitable for 5 yo girls? give it a shot, really. DOOO-IIIIT
It’s a really good game
by a thwee yeer owld on 2019/06/22 12:40
I’ve been playing since I was nine years old and the game is so addictive. I love the smoothly slidable blocks and creative color. But obviously I like the complication and enjoyment a lot. I recommend buying it if you don’t mind as much ads. It has a bit of ads but quite less compared to the games I’ve played recently. I’d say this game is counted as an older game and is more enjoyable for elders and young children. It Exercises Their young/old brain. Since it is an older game, the “teens” don’t really play it anymore but I think it’s quite fun and I can count myself as a teen I guess. I mean I am 14. Anyways I really recommend it for you!❤️🤗🤗
Loved it until it became prone to crashes
by r3steg on 2018/01/02 18:24
I added this game several years ago when it first came it and recently started playing it again. It’s a great game but when taking a break and returning, the game started crashing thus losing all progress! Twice now I was at 4096 and stopped due to a time constraint. As soon as I opened it back up it crashed and I had to do all that work again! Frustrating to say the least. If this keeps up I’ll be deleting. But I still give it four stars because it can get very challenging the higher you go. Fix the new crashing issues and it gets five stars.
Good, but....
by XxFluffyPugzxX on 2018/01/01 16:54
The app is fun, more than likely addicting. Me and my buddies at school are always off in the corner playing this game online on our iPads. It is a very challenging and fun game but there’s one thing that makes everyone angry. It’s when you get to the point when you are at a high number. Then you have to swipe because the game is being unpredictable. And when you do swipe, it decides to play a sick little trick on you, making the number not capable of going into another one. Do you do this on purpose? Cuz maybe you shouldn’t. It’s making everyone disappointed and irritated. It’s annoying and you should really address the issue. Thank you for your time.
Please remove the violent advertising from this game
by makinalnt on 2019/02/12 01:20
I really enjoy this game and I have not minded the ads up until today. I realize there are a lot of violent video games out there but I prefer not to watch these violent ads. I'm not interested in seeing human figures fighting and unfortunately I may remove your game from my devise if I continue seeing these types of advertisements. Please keep nonviolent ads with the nonviolent games and remove the "city fighter vs street gang" ad from this game. Thank you for your understanding.
Crashes and restarts
by Helen N. on 2019/06/09 14:14
I love this game, especially since i can play underground on my commute to and from work. But it crashes and starts over the game way too often. I literally beat my high score and got the 16,384 tile with no sign of being close to losing, I go back into the game next day and it restarted. It’s really frustrating when you put all that time and effort and it gets erased. The developers really need to work on this or create a save point. I’m just going to stop playing if it’s just going to delete my progress every time I go back in. Especially since it’s not something you play quickly. It’s one of my favorite games. Please work on this.
Great, addictive and strategic game
by Smaug95 on 2019/02/03 21:18
This game is great. It is a game you try to get your friends to play, and you always can improve. If you are good at the game you can strive for numbers higher than 2048. The only way the game would be better was if there was unlock-able styles for your squared that you can achieve by getting high numbers consistently, also maybe a 1v1 game mode where whoever has a higher score at the end of a timer or who gets to a certain number faster wins
Great game but...
by johnthegreen on 2017/04/16 03:59
I've enjoyed the challenge of reaching the next milestone. Took me several years, yes years, to reach the next milestone and was almost there. I was downstairs on the verge of the next tile goal and it was getting late. Left the app running, went upstairs to get ready for bed and plugged phone in to charge. Pulled the app back up and my game was still there in front of my eyes and then poof the app disappeared. Opened it back up and was looking at two 2's. This crash I could not figure out. Oh well. Beyond that my biggest gripe is the absence of a single backup one move option. Need it as I often have an accidental swipe. Because of these issues I've decided to delete the app from my phone.
More Things
by Cam_Monster5 on 2018/06/13 22:45
I wish they had several different game modes. I would enjoy if one of the game modes moved by one block not the whole thing. I would also like if another moved by each row. One other suggestion is that you had two ways of making high scores; one about how it is now, and the other is the highest number that you got to. The last thing is, is that there should be things to unlock. For example, different colors, tiles, backgrounds, and so on. Besides all of that, this is a really fun game. I enjoy it so much.
Great game.
by j.blackwood on 2020/01/11 06:07
Love this game. Been playing it for years. It’s not too challenging until you really get up there in the numbers. I’ve turned all of my friends on to this game and they’re all as addicted as I am. I’m a little disappointed though because recently it quit saving my most recent high scores. It says swipe to see your most recent high scores but they don’t update anymore. It’s a bit frustrating. That being said, I still love the game. So simple but challenging.
Great game, but staring over stinks!
by HardKover on 2016/11/11 21:36
I've gotten to 4096 and it stinks to have to start from the beginning when I make a mistake! I would love if, once you've hit a certain level, you could start at that level the next time you play--perhaps start back one level from you last best game? Maybe have an "undo" butting that allows you to undo one move? Maybe you can earn and extra "undo" every time you add a certain number of points? Thanks for making a fun game with an easy interface.
RACISM
by awk0cait on 2017/11/21 02:16
This is so not cool bro . I LOVE THIS FREAKIN GAME !!!! BUT of course I went to go sign in AND it shows only face book how ridiculous is this?? Like only old people use Facebook like at least but Snapchat or insta or even better your email like who do you think you are thinking I’m old .... HONESTLY I’m legit a tween soon I will be old and that’s when I will have Facebook but I might not be playing this game because I know young people that were my age was just criticize. So like ya I’m just saying social medial apps.
Good Game, Bad App
by SuperAusten64 on 2018/04/10 00:28
I like 2048. It’s a good game. But this app is not good. The ads are intrusive, and when you try to close the pop-up ones (which is a really bad idea in touchscreen games), they open the App Store page for the app promoted anyway. But my biggest problem is that through these ads, Ketchapp is profiting off of a free game that they don’t own. 2048 was independently developed and meant for everyone to enjoy for free. To find that the best version of the app on the App Store has ads (and intrusive ones at that) is disappointing. I turned off cellular data for this app and if you’re going to download it, I encourage you to do the same.
It is a great game
by Ravencrystal on 2017/06/27 22:00
It's a nice game that is a nice challenge that will entertain you if you're bored. I just wanted to say that it gets a little boring when you play it too much, and it's like the only app on your phone. I wish that it would have like some kind of coins that you can use to buy stuff from a shop when you get a certain amount of points, or some kind of tournament where you can compete with other players. That would be nice. But otherwise it's an awesome game.
Needs Polish, Undo and Dark Mode!!!
by ArataTakú on 2020/04/30 20:40
This is a very simple and addicting game but it has very annoying shortfalls. I‘ll update my rating upon any developer response. This 2048 version can be endlessly frustrating given the lack of a few a few features. I’d happily pay again if the following options were added… 1. Swipe anywhere mode -Allow swiping both on and off the board to control movement. -More empty space would help (#5 below) -Would help keep hands/fingers out of gameplay view 2. Undo! (single step is sufficient) 3. Dark mode!! -Allow for more comfortable use at night, in dark rooms -Current white-only design is jolting!! 4. Landscape view (especially on iPad) -iPhone: use while relaxing, resting -iPad: use while connected to keyboard case (ie. Magic Keyboard) 5. More empty space -Smaller board (little on iPhone, much more on iPad) -Minimize design of top menu/score/logo area -Would aid gameplay view while swiping (#1 above) -Would aid new landscape view UI (#4 above)
Ads
by Mitchumzzz on 2019/03/04 01:01
The ads have become increasingly unbearable. They come up after you first open the app and trick you into clicking them (if you move a tile the ad treats it as a click preemptively), then they show a fake app store that you have to close. To make matters worse, ads pop up after every match, and show up under the game. The newest trick is the fake app store shows up multiple times during a game now, which makes playing this version of the app too frustrating. I get showing ads, but the ads have become too invasive. Deleting this game that I love, will change the rating if the ads go back to being less annoying.
This app makes me really angry
by iHaveLowStandards on 2018/11/11 02:00
When I play a game I want to feel positive emotions. I want to feel joy. This “game” makes me feel nothing but unbridled rage. I can never win. I am convinced it’s impossible. I can feel it mocking me with its smug aura. Every time I think I might actually win or at least get close my dreams are obliterated and my self worth dies. If you want to feel like a worthless idiot who can’t even solve a puzzle this is the app for you. If you don’t like relaxation and positive emotions you just found your new favorite way to waste time. If you are a sensible person with any sliver of self respect do not download this. It will only crush your soul. You have been warned
Favorite game!
by itsaixa on 2019/07/01 06:14
I love this game! It’s my favorite, it’s challenging and all around fun. If I could change anything I wish there was a “go back” button!! Ugh it’s so frustrating when I accidentally do a wrong move and I had other options!!! Also the ads are annoying, there is an ad on the bottom of the screen and sometimes you accidentally click it. Plus they are slow (the ads) and so long!! Other than that love this game and the challenges.
Something changed!
by Desert Dweller AZ on 2019/02/18 14:40
I have been playing this game and loving it for about 6 weeks now...it is addicting and fun. I would turn off the sound my phone when I played because the adds were so loud, even though I had the sounds on the game turned off. This morning though, I had the phone sound turned off, the sound from the ads still came through loud! So I purchased the no ad option and it still has ads when I play and the sound comes through in spite of the fact I have the sound turned off on my phone😧. Unacceptable! I wasted my money on the no ad version and will no longer be playing the game.
It’s okay if the ads don’t bother you.
by Nickpickshisnose on 2018/11/23 20:27
I like this game. It’s a great game to play when you’re on your lunch break or when you’re waiting in line for something. The only negative thing i have to say is that the ads are dumb. Half the time the ads won’t let you exit out back to the game and they pop up in an annoying way like right when the game starts. I wish they would do the world a favor and make it completely free. It’s not like this game is hard to program. It’s like trying to make money off a tic tac toe game.
SOOOO MANY DANG ADS!
by I am literally amazing on 2018/10/16 22:05
WOW. I cannot BELIEVE how many ads are in this game. This is my favorite game, so I just have to play it on the computer, because your ads ruin the game. Ads pop up every 5 seconds, every time I open the app, I usually get a video ad. In the MIDDLE OF A GAME, I get an ad!!! It’s so distracting and I’m sure it’s caused lots of people to not win. I’ve played many, many free games with ads, and even for them I thought they had too many ads. But dang, after playing this game, the ads in those other games seem like nothing. You seriously have 10 times more ads than any other free game, and even those games have too many ads.
Why is it so unpredictable?
by Thesamlord on 2018/07/06 01:51
The game is okay, the concept is nice, and the adds don’t ruin the game. The one thing that ruined it for me is how UNPREDICTABLE it is. You’ve might seen a similar review about how unpredictable it is. And I agree. Way too unpredictable. Every time I try getting that glorious 2048 block, some stupid 2 or 4 pops out of nowhere. And yeah, the unpredictability is good, but it’s getting to the point where it pops out in this corner and in that one and, well, everywhere. So yeah it’s a good game, but try to make it where it’s not that crazy. Thanks.
life after the ios update
by Fun! Awesome on 2016/11/20 08:44
basically, since the ios update, it's been way too slow. the new tiles that appear after each swipe show up at a very slow pace. also, I've reached 8192 and I don't like having to start from the VERY beginning at the end of each game so I think it'd be best if we can start at a certain place depending on what level we're at, rather than having to start off with nothing because we've already overcome those stages of the game
Challenge Mode
by k?! on 2019/02/24 17:05
This mode needs work. Sometimes there aren’t even enough numbers on the board to reach the goal in the allotted moves. I just played one where I got a game over before I even made a move because it generated an unplayable board. The challenges should be exact and less random or at the very least should always give you a game you can potentially win
Creepy ad noise you can't get rid of!!!
by Aud33n on 2017/03/10 07:54
So I just downloaded this app after playing the game online for the first time yesterday and I was so excited and when I opened it first an ad popped up that I closed and now there's a very loud audio clip of a girl groaning at different volumes that just repeats and repeats and there's no way to get rid of it except presumably spending money on this app and that's ridiculous I shouldn't be creeped out by some groaning girl creepy audio and feel manipulated into paying you money to make it go away and be able to play this game. Deleting this app right now how absolutely disappointing and unsettling.
Ads Don’t Honor Sound Settings
by Ruf One on 2020/05/07 17:08
I understand the need for ads in free apps, but if my phone is silenced, it’s often for a reason. And if an ad pops up at full volume despite my phone being silenced, it’s a problem. This is becoming more and more of a problem with ads, so a few months ago I made it my personal policy to immediately delete any app that behaves this way, give it a one star rating and add this explanation. Each time I’ve ended up with a similar app that I liked better, so it’s actually working out that this poor ad behavior is benefiting the competition by getting me to try new options.
ads ads and you guessed it ads
by A happy and mad person on 2019/07/31 20:02
each time you lose or advance to another level your brought to another add, ketchap is notorious for completely face f@?$ing you with apps (excuse my language) many other games show ads every now and again however when you complete the challenges it doesn’t take you that long, i’d say 45 seconds tops, so basically every 45 seconds i’m meant with a new add about some ketchap game. ALL ketchap games are riddled with ads about other terrible ketchap games
Totally awesome!
by SUfan13 on 2019/12/07 06:54
I love this game! It’s such a simple concept that has no simple solutions! It really challenges my brain to think hard about my next move and how much it affects the one after that. Challenge mode does the same thing, except you have to pay close attention to the moves you have left. I LOVE this game! Wouldn’t change a single thing about it. - Liza Duran
Fun way to pass time
by ToddL812 on 2017/12/17 04:58
Enjoy playing this game over some of the included games on iOS. It’s simple to learn but challenging with higher levels. One bug that would be great to see fixed is if I’m doing a challenge and go to another app, move away from the game app, or my phone goes to sleep/locks I have to start over when I come back - would be great to preserve where I am especially if I’m about to pass a level.
Fix the bug!
by JenCBear on 2016/09/21 21:30
Let me say first that this is a great game - very simple yet completely addictive. However, it often crashes on me if I have to leave the game to do something else, like open a different app, check email or reply to a text. I don't "close" the app, but when I go back to it, all of my work is gone and the game is completely blank, starting at square one again. SO FRUSTRATING!! The first time it happened, it was no big deal - I thought "huh" did I close it by mistake? And started over again. But then it happened again after reaching the 4096 tile, and just now, I lost an 8192 tile. Very. Mad. What are the circumstances that I can sit and play, uninterrupted, for the time it takes to reach that 8192 tile again?!! Honestly it makes me want to abandon the game altogether because it's just not worth my time to invest that much energy in reaching an achievement that won't even get recorded. Fix the bug. Please.
12+?
by killer kid333 on 2019/05/23 00:42
Why is this game 12+? I have played for a long time and there are no references to what it says under 12+! But this is a great game. Super fun and addictive. But with my new restrictions saying I can’t have 12+ apps, I can’t play! I’m fine with not being able to download Fortnite and stuff like that, but why this? Love this game but please change to 4+ as this is not inappropriate.
Pretty good!
by alalsnsn on 2016/12/31 23:35
I like this game because it's fun and challenging. It also doesn't take up that much storage. It's a good way to pass time too. I don't like that when there's an ad and u press the x, it STILL takes you to the App Store, and an ad comes up every time you open the game, even when it's been five seconds. Overall a great game id recommend if you can put up with ads and being taken to the app store
Love the quiet game, hate the full volume ads
by Tinsel Ann on 2018/08/20 16:42
The game is fun, challenging with an element luck that stop you from always winning, but when you are finished you are rewarded with an ad that is often hard to get out of. If the ad is quiet, I can wait for the x to show and move on, but when the ads are loud, I have to either quickly exit or quickly turn off the sound. This could be solved simply by adding a volume setting, and not allowing the ads to reset it. Please fix this so I can give you a 5 star rating
Turn ad sound off! PLEASE!!!!
by hddebbie123446789 on 2018/02/21 19:41
Update, tried playing again and sound in ads still there. I had to immediately get out of app. I won't be going back in until I know for sure sound on ads is disabled. I'm HIGHLY disappointed!! Once again, with the latest update, the sound in ads cannot be turned off. I play in places where any sound is unacceptable. Therefore, until the sound on ads can be turned off, I cannot play.
Good game - terrible ads
by ClayMottley on 2020/02/02 14:06
The game itself is pretty fun and addictive. It’s a great game to jump in and out of throughout the day. But they play ads after every game and even if you have the game sound off, the phone on silent, THE ADS STILL PLAY AT FULL VOLUME!!! Fix this! I set my phone silent settings to cover everything. I should have to turn my phone volume down when I’ve set the app settings to silent. Ads are part of this app, they should follow the protocol of the app. Get rid of this ad feature and I’ll give it a 5-star rating.
Almost five star!
by KeenaMatt93 on 2019/03/17 14:14
I play this game daily! It can be really challenging! I’ve learned a strategy, but still haven’t made it past the 2048 tile! I love the brain boggling though! Only reason I won’t give it that last star yet is because multiplayer mode or playing with others has never worked for me! I think it’ll make the game more interesting, but I can never get it to work! Please fix multiplayer!
Haters...😡 this game epic!!😇😇😇
by DabaDobson_AWSOME on 2017/02/10 03:45
I can not believe how stupid people are.I have a iPad 2, and it is OLD. It does not have any glitches as far as I know.😀 You people should be greatful that you even GET to play this game, many people cannot afford to even GET the device to play the game. It is a free and cool game... And it could use some updates. But is still cool and you haters should be greatful to play.
Yeah... I like it.
by Awesome critic1840 on 2017/07/04 21:59
So it's a pretty good game and also addicting... but it's one of those games that you love for a while and then forget about it. There needs to be something that drags you towards the game for longer then just "a little while." So one problem is the fact that there are too many ads. It just bothers me. The game overall is awesome and I do recommend it. The idea of the game is fun and a great idea. So, yeah... I like it.

Often crashes
Pretty good
by AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRIIIIiii1 on 2020/05/25 16:26
This is a pretty good game, the ads are short and you can skip them, and it is pretty fun. It gets a little boring after a while, but that’s just if you play it like every day. It is a good travel game to play if you have no WiFi. Edit: Why are all these people talking about crashing? Mine hasn’t crashed once and I’ve been playing it a lot.
Fix the crashing
by amissniss on 2020/05/24 14:45
I used to love playing this game whenever I needed some absent minded time. For the past week, this app has been crashing non-stop. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the game to no avail.
Crashing
by Themostawesomepersonverrrrr on 2020/05/19 03:50
I can’t open the app:( it must be crashing. I even deleted and redownloded
Umm
by JM624x1980x on 2020/05/15 00:15
If I pay for the ads to disappear, I shouldn’t still see the ads after. Come on now..... Fix this or run me my $2.99 back!!!
Glitches

Lately when the game switches to ads the screen never returns to the game but stays stuck on ad with no x to click to get rid of ad

Great game but crashes remove the fun

I have lost a few good games on my iPad so while I really like playing I can’t until the crashing is fixed. Too upset at losing good games.

A good game, a terrible ad hijacking.
by me! cameo on 2020/05/09 09:39
A decent, simple timekilling game. I like it. Also I understand why developers want to attach some ads. They also need to earn money, but its ad keep hijacking me. I don’t know what ad I clicked. Suddenly it keeps send me to the app store. Even though I close the app store app, it does not end. So I deleted the game.
Bad programming? Or Intended
by StephanAeR on 2020/05/08 15:24
After running 100+ games with and algorithm that was created by deep learning I can honestly say this game is coded to trigger unprovable tile placement in order to make you lose.
Ads Don’t Honor Sound Settings
by Ruf One on 2020/05/07 17:08
I understand the need for ads in free apps, but if my phone is silenced, it’s often for a reason. And if an ad pops up at full volume despite my phone being silenced, it’s a problem. This is becoming more and more of a problem with ads, so a few months ago I made it my personal policy to immediately delete any app that behaves this way, give it a one star rating and add this explanation. Each time I’ve ended up with a similar app that I liked better, so it’s actually working out that this poor ad behavior is benefiting the competition by getting me to try new options.

Crashes, won’t open

Good game... but new update has terrible interruptions
by Ashizz on 2020/05/04 13:56
Love this game and have played this exact app for years... but recently the game has started to just send me directly to the App Store in the middle of the game unprompted. No ad, the game isn’t done and I’m not clicking on a banner, it will just open the App Store to random apps. It’s basically unplayable while on WiFi or data anymore from these ads. Thankfully, I can just turn that feature off.

Needs Polish, Undo and Dark Mode!!!
by ArataTakú on 2020/04/30 20:40
This is a very simple and addicting game but it has very annoying shortfalls. I‘ll update my rating upon any developer response. This 2048 version can be endlessly frustrating given the lack of a few a few features. I’d happily pay again if the following options were added… 1. Swipe anywhere mode -Allow swiping both on and off the board to control movement. -More empty space would help (#5 below) -Would help keep hands/fingers out of gameplay view 2. Undo! (single step is sufficient) 3. Dark mode!! -Allow for more comfortable use at night, in dark rooms -Current white-only design is jolting!! 4. Landscape view (especially on iPad) -iPhone: use while relaxing, resting -iPad: use while connected to keyboard case (ie. Magic Keyboard) 5. More empty space -Smaller board (little on iPhone, much more on iPad) -Minimize design of top menu/score/logo area -Would aid gameplay view while swiping (#1 above) -Would aid new landscape view UI (#4 above)
Please add dark mode!
by jedinborough on 2020/04/30 10:11
If I could take a half star, I would, but this game is too good to reduce to four. Please add a dark mode and some daily challenges.
Game fine but ads are annoying
by KJRexplorer on 2020/04/28 21:28
The game is great. My only real complaint is I have the game muted but all of the advertisements come on with the volume way up and typically someone screaming. That’s not ok to me.
Can’t manage their ads
by Rsdavis412 on 2020/04/28 17:12
Good game but crashes with the ads often. I have to delete the game then reload it to make the game open. They are dead by the success of their game
Buggy and unethical
by Nyinjewn2 on 2020/04/26 14:05
Suddenly mid-game it sends you to App Store. And although my audio was completely off in every way the app somehow managed to play an ad with sound blasting. So yeah, fun game, just beware of these irritating features.
Dishonest dev’s 👎
by RevelationAdept on 2020/04/26 12:36
Paid to have ads removed, still getting them, and not just the little banners but the obnoxious, screeching, full screen ads. This game wasn’t that interesting in the first place and certainly isn’t worth having now. Deleted.
Good game but
by rachel is the best at bedwars on 2020/04/25 16:59
I really like this game and it’s challenging for me blah blah blah. AND this is a great way to remember my powers of 2 since I’ve forgotten most of things from algebra this year during the quarantine 😅 However the frequent ads made it lose a star. I know it’s cause the game is free but they’re still annoying. All in all this review is like the other 500 but I just wanted to say, please remove some ads
Ads cleanup is required
by eduard.dudar on 2020/04/25 08:17
I don’t mind ads in general but these popping up in the middle of the move are annoying as hell. Especially when they lead you to an app that is not available in your region and system dialog pops up on top.
Can’t get rid of ads

High scores lost
by Stupid World on 2020/04/23 02:50
The left menu is supposed to show your 5 top scores. It seems pretty random about when it will remember a score. Otherwise, good game and addictive as anything. Stop loosing my high scores and I’m good.
Missing ctrl+z
by JGnRafa on 2020/04/22 21:07
It’s good suggestion though: add a “undo” option! If you do something that you were not willing to, you could undo the last step!
Ads invasive
by lpofgt on 2020/04/22 02:36
The game itself is fine but the ads are so touch sensitive, you can’t help set them off constantly.
Nonstop ads destroy a fun game.
by Confused Vendor on 2020/04/21 17:59
The game is fine. But everytime you open the game, an ad loads two seconds into the app being open, sending you straight to the App Store. Sometimes, in the middle of a game, it just sends you to the App Store for no reason. The game isn’t to get to a tile of 2048, it’s to dodge the ads that never cease coming.
Multiple ad pop-ups
by K.r.i.s.t.a. on 2020/04/20 13:57
I enjoy playing 2048 but why is it when I am in the middle of a game that I’m directed to the App Store? I wouldn’t be bothered if it happened once or twice but it will continue opening the App Store over 10 times, I stop playing for a while when this happens out of pure frustration. Please fix!
Ads can be muted
by Mt0u812 on 2020/04/20 12:32
Also ads have started bringing me directly to App Store without even clicking on them. I like playing the game, but if ads are going to pop up with full volume, it’s a problem.
Was great before sounds enabled on ads
by Dingess on 2020/04/17 18:59
Loved this game until they started playing ads with sound enabled. Even when the game sound is muted the ads will play, making it impossible to play the game discreetly. Very frustrating.
Drains battery
by Poiuytrewqasddfghjhgd on 2020/04/17 13:54
I played for 10 minutes before bed. It ran in the background all night and drained my battery. My iPhone’s battery monitor showed that it was the only app running.
sending me spam
by kiera1616 on 2020/04/10 07:12
ur stupid app keeps sending me to the app store for random apps when i’m trying to play it like eharmony and random things so that it makes it hard to even play a game. please fix this i’m extremely disappointed
Why did I pay to remove ads for them to still be there?
by PetrosKou on 2020/04/10 01:11
I enjoy this game but I paid to remove the ads. I still see ads. If the ads don’t go away, I’d like my money back.
KEEPS TAKING ME TO APP STORE
by anyagabrielle123 on 2020/04/08 19:59
Trying to play and it’ll automatically stop and go to the App Store. Extremely annoying and doesn’t let you play while doing this. I’m not sure when this started happening but it is extremely annoying so please fix it
Favorite game
by Pink-Heart on 2020/04/08 17:27
I am absolutely addicted, it’s relaxing and challenging at the same time but after a few months of having it, the app keeps switching to a random app on the Apple store mid game and when I close out and go back to the game it would instantly switch back to another random app on the App Store. The game is unplayable now because of this bug. Please fix it
Ads ruin it
by KariiolveradiazM on 2020/04/08 07:56
It’s a fun game but getting taken to the App Store every few seconds ruined the game for me can’t concentrate when the app takes me to a a random app every 5 seconds I hate it don’t recommend
The ads are not just horrible...
by odibil on 2020/04/07 18:23
The ads become even worse, they now hinder the gameplay by popping up in the middle of playing (3 ads in a row while I was moving tiles seriously); it used show up only after the game got over, not in the middle of game. The developers now put a last straw so I finally decided to get rid of this app.
Didn’t even load the app
by SoshJam on 2020/04/07 02:43
I clicked and it prioritized the ad bar at the bottom. The app was literally just a white screen with an ad at the bottom, it cycled through five animated ads for different apps before I just gave up.

Paid to remove ads. They’re back.
by jpadot on 2020/04/05 23:58
So what’s with that huh? The ads ruin this game. I paid to remove them. Things went well for a while. Now I see adds. I restore purchases, nothing. Bad form!
The ads are getting out of hand
by Jules3291995xo on 2020/04/04 08:34
I love this game so much, and the ads haven’t been a huge issue as they’re usually just 30 seconds long. But now the banner ads are starting to interfere with the actual game, causing me to accidentally click away from the game very frequently.
Scam
by _jonhay on 2020/04/04 00:24
Paying to remove ads should not result in 20 second long ads between games. No ads should mean no ads.

I have to say this is a very fun game! With a simple concept that makes me relaxed! But there are quite a lot of ads here. Maybe you can stop them? Or is there a tip?
But manage the sound...!
by roakydoak on 2020/03/25 17:54
I like the game. I sometimes play in waiting room etc where I play w all sounds off, phone muted. BUT when the game ends, the ad that immediately follows plays FULL BLAST volume. How do you get around my system settings - and why would you piss players off by doing this?
Only the ads load
by Mind The Rant on 2020/03/22 23:49
I’ve played this game dozens of times on my Windows PC but thought I’d download a version to play on my iPhone 7. The only thing that runs are the ads — the game board refuses to display. Hence the 1-star rating.

Ads kill the fun
by mf88802 on 2020/03/15 02:22
App was super fun until they updated it to include a 30 second ad between every level. Makes it much more time-consuming and a lot less fun to go through.
Intrusive ads
by Pasta pasta on 2020/03/12 23:50
Ads are fine especially on free games, but this game pops up an ad in the middle of game play without any warning, which leads to accidentally tapping on the ad. Additionally, some ads do not close despite tapping the 'x' button, forcing me to close the app completely to get rid of it. (Which triggers another ad to appear the next time you open the app, and hopefully maybe that one is dismissable).
Too many ads
by groovyjayla on 2020/03/12 21:13
Can’t enjoy due to the ads and now freezes up and won’t let me play. Used to be a good game

Ads are so bad
by Deirdre140 on 2020/03/09 18:17
The ads recently are so annoying. There are multiple and hard to click out. I loved this game and it really hurt that they added multiple ads per game. I will delete my game because of this irritation.
Ads are obnoxious
by Dogwood Dingus on 2020/03/09 16:17
Imagine being bombarded by ads just opening the app, starting a run, and ending a run. There’s another version on the store that Im pretty sure is the original, even if it isn’t the ads are far less atrocious there.
Great game, Ads are annoying
by Lisagna on 2020/03/09 06:06
The ads that are included lately are so irritating, when they have sound, they cause the music you are listening to in the background to stop. Change that, please!!

MORBID ADS
by WF-10 on 2020/03/07 11:20
I like the game, but, although the ads in between games are cartoons, they are quite disturbing. A man succumbing to his demise due to a deadly gas, or explosion? Really? They couldn’t come up with something better?
.... You didn't fix the bugs!

I played this game years back and loved it. And I got to 2048. I reinstall for fun. And start swiping. Maybe 20 seconds in the game stops for an add. The whole point of the game is fast paced swipes and now you have to stop a couple times a minute for a game add? #failedtotheirowngreed

by tanstaafl1963 on 2020/03/04 17:40

Fun with pleasant design but intrusive ads
by eucharin on 2020/03/03 15:49
I really enjoy how intuitively the app works but ads have started to pop up on a lag so you’ll start a game and then mid move the ad pops up and your move will be considered a click that’ll send you to the App Store. It’s a whole mess; I wouldn’t mind ads otherwise cuz like I -get- it, you know? But the way they’re being carried out is really messing up the whole experience for me (I can count the number of reviews I’ve written on one hand but the ads singularly drove me here in this case). Move their location, make ‘em less obstructive/ ‘mandatory viewing’, and/or incentivize watching them for some type of reward and you’ll create a better experience for players.
Paid version still has ads

Excessive Ads

It’s one the best games out there but the amount of ads now is too much every time I loose a game, a massive amount of ads start popping up and are often can’t skip them. My request to the developers is to not be much of a sell out and please, PLEASE STOP PUTTING ADS, ITS NOT WORTH IT
Ads Ads Ads!

Game randomly crashes and progress is lost. This has been happening for a while now and the developer is too lazy to fix it. Find a better version of this game. The loser who made the app deserves zero stars.
crashes, ads enough to gag a maggot
by autnagrag on 2020/02/18 14:24
It crashes. It tricks you into tapping ads. The ads blare out sound even if your device is on silent. The game is OK, if you can tolerate the adherent excrement. If you download it, chances are you will delete it soon.
Used to be a fun game
by mlikh on 2020/02/18 03:52

Why No Premium Version?
by Hypnotoad9641 on 2020/02/05 07:15
Why is there no premium version to get rid of the ads? Almost every free game has a premium version so there are no ads, why can't 2028 have the option? I would gladly pay $20.00 or more to stop the ads. I would even pay a monthly price. Plus the ads seem to cause the most glitches and crashes in the game. Causing me to start a game all over again because it wants to puch ads at me. Blah! Please, just release a premium mode to stop the ads.

Good game - terrible ads
by ClayMottley on 2020/02/02 14:06
The game itself is pretty fun and addictive. It’s a great game to jump in and out of throughout the day. But they play ads after every game and even if you have the game sound off, the phone on silent, THE ADS STILL PLAY AT FULL VOLUME!!! Fix this! I set my phone silent settings to cover everything. I should have to turn my phone volume down when I’ve set the app settings to silent. Ads are part of this app, they should follow the protocol of the app. Get rid of this ad feature and I’ll give it a 5-star rating.
Unpredictability is killing me!
by Chloe4|\|N on 2017/09/21 21:51
Good game, the app is fine, the adds don't bother me-they don't cause a crash and you just exit out of them. My problem is the unpredictability that only happens when you're right on the verge of getting a higher tile. Once you hit a new tile, that possibly took months or years-then you can hit it almost every try after that. It's not that your skill drastically increased, only that the game FINALLY let you. For instance, I'll only be 1024 away from my goal tile when suddenly I have to swipe up because the game decides to be unpredictable. Then a number (90% of the time) appears under my highest tile. Then it gives me a four instead of a two, which of course doesn't match, and just like that-poof. The game is lost. I don't give up then, but I'm again irritated at the unpredictability. It's not a learning game at that point. It's chance. Or better yet, a sick sense of humor by the developers. It's not poor planning by the player. Okay, most times that is the problem, but a few times-it's not. You'll play perfectly to the strategy that works all up until suddenly the game starts changing it up for no reason, and with no purpose other than to make you loose. I actually like this about the game-but not after a year or more of being stuck on the same tile.
This game isn't a challenge...
by Liv_loves_to_sing on 2017/07/08 00:05
This game is very fun and addicting and I love Ketchapp it is my favorite game company but this happens in a lot of there games like The Floor Is Lava and Color Switch, if you don't update the app it becomes to easy because I play it a lot. This app was sort of a challenge in the beginning and then the more I played the easier it got. Soon I jut started closing my eyes and swiping up and down. Everyone thinks ads and glitching is the problem I just think something simple could make it more complex. JUST ADD SOME MODES!!! You could do a mode where you need to get a certain amount of 4's or 124's or whatever and more that would make playing it burn a lot more time too. Ketchapp please read this and please understand I'm not a hater I love your games which is why I'm trying to help you make them better! 😃
Best Mobile Game Since Snake.
by santos.julian.j on 2016/08/20 06:06
Although the mechanics may seem simple those that sink their teeth into the game find that it is truly iconic and will stand the test of time. With mobile games that devour upwards of a gigabit of memory for half of the replay ability, 2048 really masters the line of strategy, luck, challenge and accessibility. I've been a fan of this game since it's inception and it has lived a long life on my phone which happens to be longer than some phones. When people refer to the great mobile games of the era, I vision seeing 2048 up there with classics like Snake, Solitaire and Tetris. My hat goes off to the 2048 team for continuing to update their game about 5 years after it's first major debut. I look forward for what lies ahead for 2048 as it continues to live on my phone.
This used to be awesome
by lauray72 on 2019/03/16 17:16
If I was ever in a spot where I needed something to occupy a little bit of time I would choose this game. And then they started messing with it. See, I figured out the trick to it. Getting 2048 is pretty easy. No problem. 4096 is a challenge but I would often get it. Then they messed with it. I’m not sure how and I’m sure they will deny it but it got even HARDER. No biggie right? After all, I’ve gotten 4096. Well, the next step of 8192? has become impossible. The tiles don’t come that u need and the game ends. Crap! And on top of that? They added advertisements. The worst thing for me because I can’t stand them. So every time I loose? Another advertisement comes up. Often times I actually have the game on my phone and I still have to watch them. So it’s come time to part ways. Thanks for the great game. It added hours of enjoyment for me. Wish u didn’t feel the need of changing things.
An awesome game, but the Ads!!!
by #Tweet Tweet on 2019/07/13 23:58
This is such an awesome game, but the ads!! Every time I open the game: ad. Every time I lose: 30 second ad I can’t skip. I want to turn on airplane mode to stop them, but then the app lags and I can’t move the tiles. Now, the good parts of this game: I love the sound of the merging tiles, it is just relaxing. I am bad at this game, and my high score was 512 with some 128s. To the developers: great game, but please cut down on the ads. If not, just make it so you can skip them. To people downloading this app: If I were you, I’d think twice on getting this app. It’s great, but if you don’t want the ads, and you don’t want to turn on airplane mode, then maybe not download this app? But it’s a great game, I recommend it.
Addictive game but developers insult the player
by dissapointed12097 on 2018/04/23 15:47
This is a very fun to play and addictive game that would be very enjoyable if the developers didn’t decide to insult the players by shoving the ads down their throats. I mean, I have nothing against ads to support a free game but when players are presented with a full screen add and the option to close it by clicking the x in the corner, it is extremely annoying that developers decided to ignore players decisions. Clicking on the x to close the ad is a well established GUI convention but instead of closing it, the game simply introduces a delay (often enough to start a new game) and then forcibly opens the App Store, showing the app from the add. This behavior is a serious breach of rules and is equal to programming a cancel button to act as an Agree button. As soon as I find a way to do it, I will raise a formal complaint with the App Store.
Ads are the worst!
by EMP1987 on 2018/05/10 02:36
These ads are the worst I have experienced on any game. It frustrates me so much that this is the only app I have ever bothered to review. I had this game on my phone with a different carrier and it was fine, they would have a silent ad before/after a game, and it was easy to exit out of. However, since I got my new phone on Verizon, the ads keep popping up all the time - before and after, as well as throughout the game. The worst part is that the ads pop up with full volume (despite my game settings being set to silent), and then it freezes with full volume for a sec while I frantically try to stop it. I didn’t have this issue when on TMobile so I am thinking the cell carrier has something to do with it, so I would strongly advise you to skip this game if you have Verizon.
Abhorrent play
by Shsnebzjenmzls on 2018/07/21 19:39
I’ll preface this by stating that the Co-Op play hospitalized me for nearly a year. After a mere minute of gameplay my blood pressure reached severe hypertension and the palpitations began. Nearing the five minute mark the arrhythmia was so intense I could feel colors and vibrate through walls. I tried to cry out but what had once been joyous squeals had morphed into nothing more than a nefarious, hissing mephitis which was fumigating my very soul. At this point I knew it was over. I dropped the phone and called an ambulance. From here, the exposure was limited to about 4 seconds, but in that time I watched days pass, the seasons change, empires rise and fall. The long term severe brain damage I undoubtedly suffered only added to the effect. Today 2048 “cooperative play” is banned by all 148 signatory nations to the Geneva convention as a crime against humanity. Learn from my mistakes. Don’t be a statistic.
Fun with pleasant design but intrusive ads
by eucharin on 2020/03/03 15:49
I really enjoy how intuitively the app works but ads have started to pop up on a lag so you’ll start a game and then mid move the ad pops up and your move will be considered a click that’ll send you to the App Store. It’s a whole mess; I wouldn’t mind ads otherwise cuz like I -get- it, you know? But the way they’re being carried out is really messing up the whole experience for me (I can count the number of reviews I’ve written on one hand but the ads singularly drove me here in this case). Move their location, make ‘em less obstructive/ ‘mandatory viewing’, and/or incentivize watching them for some type of reward and you’ll create a better experience for players.
THE legend
by EpicFoxx on 2018/06/30 04:23
If you guys saw my review on the new 2048, it is terrible, but this 2048, I don’t why I didn’t even bother making a review on this, it’s so awesome, easy to understand, controls are ez, it’s just awesome, so stop hating and start LOVING. This has got to be the best game by Kechapp, because they say it’s a legend and a famous game, which it is, but the thing I want to see on this game is goals or missions that you have to complete to get coins, and use those coins to get skins like in the other 2048, that is only an opinion, you don’t have to do it, do it or don’t, I don’t care, I just hope you guys make more games 😘 later
Almost my favorite
by PanzaMom on 2019/02/20 11:50
The great: They say it’s fun and relaxing, and it really is. When you get into the zone, and your analytical brain turns off, you swipe and swipe with no interruption for ages. I know some people will complain that the game “won’t” give them what they need when their tiles get high. But working within the increasingly crowded board is the whole point. Going for incredibly high scores is only one goal. Personally, my purpose is to enjoy the game, and I do – every single time. The good: Challenges provide a nice switch from the regular goal of a high score. There are ads, but they are quick and do not pop up during play, just between games and at sign-on. The imperfect: The only reason it’s not my fave is that it doesn’t save my high scores most of the time. Yeah, I know I said I play for the joy, and I do ... but I still want to know my best at a glance. I think the highest score listed is right, but it only holds three, and two are very, very outdated. Still, I love it and recommend it to just about everyone.
this how this brilliant, totally awesome game works:
by Beejammie on 2018/03/10 20:26
this game is brilliant and really hard to explain, but I’ll give it a shot. when you swipe left, the tiles lock into rows, and all the rows move leftward, sliding against each other until the left-most tile of each entire row butts up against the left wall. any two tiles that touch on their LEADING edges as they move will add together; so if you swipe a 2 and a 2 to the left, they will merge into one 4. every time you move the board, a new tile pops up, a 2 or a 4. same idea for swiping right, as well as for up and down. the goal is to swipe two 1024 tiles together. so every move, you decide which direction to swipe in order to push a tile into another of the same. And, there’s no glitter, bubble-popping sounds, hearts, cutesy animation, or positive reinforcement phrases erupting all over on the screen. have you noticed lately that a-lot of stuff geared toward women is suitable for 5 yo girls? give it a shot, really. DOOO-IIIIT
It’s a really good game
by a thwee yeer owld on 2019/06/22 12:40
I’ve been playing since I was nine years old and the game is so addictive. I love the smoothly slidable blocks and creative color. But obviously I like the complication and enjoyment a lot. I recommend buying it if you don’t mind as much ads. It has a bit of ads but quite less compared to the games I’ve played recently. I’d say this game is counted as an older game and is more enjoyable for elders and young children. It Exercises Their young/old brain. Since it is an older game, the “teens” don’t really play it anymore but I think it’s quite fun and I can count myself as a teen I guess. I mean I am 14. Anyways I really recommend it for you!❤️🤗🤗
Loved it until it became prone to crashes
by r3steg on 2018/01/02 18:24
I added this game several years ago when it first came it and recently started playing it again. It’s a great game but when taking a break and returning, the game started crashing thus losing all progress! Twice now I was at 4096 and stopped due to a time constraint. As soon as I opened it back up it crashed and I had to do all that work again! Frustrating to say the least. If this keeps up I’ll be deleting. But I still give it four stars because it can get very challenging the higher you go. Fix the new crashing issues and it gets five stars.
Good, but....
by XxFluffyPugzxX on 2018/01/01 16:54
The app is fun, more than likely addicting. Me and my buddies at school are always off in the corner playing this game online on our iPads. It is a very challenging and fun game but there’s one thing that makes everyone angry. It’s when you get to the point when you are at a high number. Then you have to swipe because the game is being unpredictable. And when you do swipe, it decides to play a sick little trick on you, making the number not capable of going into another one. Do you do this on purpose? Cuz maybe you shouldn’t. It’s making everyone disappointed and irritated. It’s annoying and you should really address the issue. Thank you for your time.
Please remove the violent advertising from this game
by makinalnt on 2019/02/12 01:20
I really enjoy this game and I have not minded the ads up until today. I realize there are a lot of violent video games out there but I prefer not to watch these violent ads. I'm not interested in seeing human figures fighting and unfortunately I may remove your game from my devise if I continue seeing these types of advertisements. Please keep nonviolent ads with the nonviolent games and remove the "city fighter vs street gang" ad from this game. Thank you for your understanding.
Crashes and restarts
by Helen N. on 2019/06/09 14:14
I love this game, especially since i can play underground on my commute to and from work. But it crashes and starts over the game way too often. I literally beat my high score and got the 16,384 tile with no sign of being close to losing, I go back into the game next day and it restarted. It’s really frustrating when you put all that time and effort and it gets erased. The developers really need to work on this or create a save point. I’m just going to stop playing if it’s just going to delete my progress every time I go back in. Especially since it’s not something you play quickly. It’s one of my favorite games. Please work on this.
Great, addictive and strategic game
by Smaug95 on 2019/02/03 21:18
This game is great. It is a game you try to get your friends to play, and you always can improve. If you are good at the game you can strive for numbers higher than 2048. The only way the game would be better was if there was unlock-able styles for your squared that you can achieve by getting high numbers consistently, also maybe a 1v1 game mode where whoever has a higher score at the end of a timer or who gets to a certain number faster wins
Great game but...
by johnthegreen on 2017/04/16 03:59
I've enjoyed the challenge of reaching the next milestone. Took me several years, yes years, to reach the next milestone and was almost there. I was downstairs on the verge of the next tile goal and it was getting late. Left the app running, went upstairs to get ready for bed and plugged phone in to charge. Pulled the app back up and my game was still there in front of my eyes and then poof the app disappeared. Opened it back up and was looking at two 2's. This crash I could not figure out. Oh well. Beyond that my biggest gripe is the absence of a single backup one move option. Need it as I often have an accidental swipe. Because of these issues I've decided to delete the app from my phone.
More Things
by Cam_Monster5 on 2018/06/13 22:45
I wish they had several different game modes. I would enjoy if one of the game modes moved by one block not the whole thing. I would also like if another moved by each row. One other suggestion is that you had two ways of making high scores; one about how it is now, and the other is the highest number that you got to. The last thing is, is that there should be things to unlock. For example, different colors, tiles, backgrounds, and so on. Besides all of that, this is a really fun game. I enjoy it so much.
Great game.
by j.blackwood on 2020/01/11 06:07
Love this game. Been playing it for years. It’s not too challenging until you really get up there in the numbers. I’ve turned all of my friends on to this game and they’re all as addicted as I am. I’m a little disappointed though because recently it quit saving my most recent high scores. It says swipe to see your most recent high scores but they don’t update anymore. It’s a bit frustrating. That being said, I still love the game. So simple but challenging.
Great game, but staring over stinks!
by HardKover on 2016/11/11 21:36
I've gotten to 4096 and it stinks to have to start from the beginning when I make a mistake! I would love if, once you've hit a certain level, you could start at that level the next time you play--perhaps start back one level from you last best game? Maybe have an "undo" butting that allows you to undo one move? Maybe you can earn and extra "undo" every time you add a certain number of points? Thanks for making a fun game with an easy interface.
RACISM
by awk0cait on 2017/11/21 02:16
This is so not cool bro . I LOVE THIS FREAKIN GAME !!!! BUT of course I went to go sign in AND it shows only face book how ridiculous is this?? Like only old people use Facebook like at least but Snapchat or insta or even better your email like who do you think you are thinking I’m old .... HONESTLY I’m legit a tween soon I will be old and that’s when I will have Facebook but I might not be playing this game because I know young people that were my age was just criticize. So like ya I’m just saying social medial apps.
Good Game, Bad App
by SuperAusten64 on 2018/04/10 00:28
I like 2048. It’s a good game. But this app is not good. The ads are intrusive, and when you try to close the pop-up ones (which is a really bad idea in touchscreen games), they open the App Store page for the app promoted anyway. But my biggest problem is that through these ads, Ketchapp is profiting off of a free game that they don’t own. 2048 was independently developed and meant for everyone to enjoy for free. To find that the best version of the app on the App Store has ads (and intrusive ones at that) is disappointing. I turned off cellular data for this app and if you’re going to download it, I encourage you to do the same.
It is a great game
by Ravencrystal on 2017/06/27 22:00
It's a nice game that is a nice challenge that will entertain you if you're bored. I just wanted to say that it gets a little boring when you play it too much, and it's like the only app on your phone. I wish that it would have like some kind of coins that you can use to buy stuff from a shop when you get a certain amount of points, or some kind of tournament where you can compete with other players. That would be nice. But otherwise it's an awesome game.
Needs Polish, Undo and Dark Mode!!!
by ArataTakú on 2020/04/30 20:40
This is a very simple and addicting game but it has very annoying shortfalls. I‘ll update my rating upon any developer response. This 2048 version can be endlessly frustrating given the lack of a few a few features. I’d happily pay again if the following options were added… 1. Swipe anywhere mode -Allow swiping both on and off the board to control movement. -More empty space would help (#5 below) -Would help keep hands/fingers out of gameplay view 2. Undo! (single step is sufficient) 3. Dark mode!! -Allow for more comfortable use at night, in dark rooms -Current white-only design is jolting!! 4. Landscape view (especially on iPad) -iPhone: use while relaxing, resting -iPad: use while connected to keyboard case (ie. Magic Keyboard) 5. More empty space -Smaller board (little on iPhone, much more on iPad) -Minimize design of top menu/score/logo area -Would aid gameplay view while swiping (#1 above) -Would aid new landscape view UI (#4 above)
Ads
by Mitchumzzz on 2019/03/04 01:01
The ads have become increasingly unbearable. They come up after you first open the app and trick you into clicking them (if you move a tile the ad treats it as a click preemptively), then they show a fake app store that you have to close. To make matters worse, ads pop up after every match, and show up under the game. The newest trick is the fake app store shows up multiple times during a game now, which makes playing this version of the app too frustrating. I get showing ads, but the ads have become too invasive. Deleting this game that I love, will change the rating if the ads go back to being less annoying.
This app makes me really angry
by iHaveLowStandards on 2018/11/11 02:00
When I play a game I want to feel positive emotions. I want to feel joy. This “game” makes me feel nothing but unbridled rage. I can never win. I am convinced it’s impossible. I can feel it mocking me with its smug aura. Every time I think I might actually win or at least get close my dreams are obliterated and my self worth dies. If you want to feel like a worthless idiot who can’t even solve a puzzle this is the app for you. If you don’t like relaxation and positive emotions you just found your new favorite way to waste time. If you are a sensible person with any sliver of self respect do not download this. It will only crush your soul. You have been warned
Favorite game!
by itsaixa on 2019/07/01 06:14
I love this game! It’s my favorite, it’s challenging and all around fun. If I could change anything I wish there was a “go back” button!! Ugh it’s so frustrating when I accidentally do a wrong move and I had other options!!! Also the ads are annoying, there is an ad on the bottom of the screen and sometimes you accidentally click it. Plus they are slow (the ads) and so long!! Other than that love this game and the challenges.
Something changed!
by Desert Dweller AZ on 2019/02/18 14:40
I have been playing this game and loving it for about 6 weeks now...it is addicting and fun. I would turn off the sound my phone when I played because the adds were so loud, even though I had the sounds on the game turned off. This morning though, I had the phone sound turned off, the sound from the ads still came through loud! So I purchased the no ad option and it still has ads when I play and the sound comes through in spite of the fact I have the sound turned off on my phone😧. Unacceptable! I wasted my money on the no ad version and will no longer be playing the game.
It’s okay if the ads don’t bother you.
by Nickpickshisnose on 2018/11/23 20:27
I like this game. It’s a great game to play when you’re on your lunch break or when you’re waiting in line for something. The only negative thing i have to say is that the ads are dumb. Half the time the ads won’t let you exit out back to the game and they pop up in an annoying way like right when the game starts. I wish they would do the world a favor and make it completely free. It’s not like this game is hard to program. It’s like trying to make money off a tic tac toe game.
SOOOO MANY DANG ADS!
by I am literally amazing on 2018/10/16 22:05
WOW. I cannot BELIEVE how many ads are in this game. This is my favorite game, so I just have to play it on the computer, because your ads ruin the game. Ads pop up every 5 seconds, every time I open the app, I usually get a video ad. In the MIDDLE OF A GAME, I get an ad!!! It’s so distracting and I’m sure it’s caused lots of people to not win. I’ve played many, many free games with ads, and even for them I thought they had too many ads. But dang, after playing this game, the ads in those other games seem like nothing. You seriously have 10 times more ads than any other free game, and even those games have too many ads.
Why is it so unpredictable?
by Thesamlord on 2018/07/06 01:51
The game is okay, the concept is nice, and the adds don’t ruin the game. The one thing that ruined it for me is how UNPREDICTABLE it is. You’ve might seen a similar review about how unpredictable it is. And I agree. Way too unpredictable. Every time I try getting that glorious 2048 block, some stupid 2 or 4 pops out of nowhere. And yeah, the unpredictability is good, but it’s getting to the point where it pops out in this corner and in that one and, well, everywhere. So yeah it’s a good game, but try to make it where it’s not that crazy. Thanks.
life after the ios update
by Fun! Awesome on 2016/11/20 08:44
basically, since the ios update, it's been way too slow. the new tiles that appear after each swipe show up at a very slow pace. also, I've reached 8192 and I don't like having to start from the VERY beginning at the end of each game so I think it'd be best if we can start at a certain place depending on what level we're at, rather than having to start off with nothing because we've already overcome those stages of the game
Challenge Mode
by k?! on 2019/02/24 17:05
This mode needs work. Sometimes there aren’t even enough numbers on the board to reach the goal in the allotted moves. I just played one where I got a game over before I even made a move because it generated an unplayable board. The challenges should be exact and less random or at the very least should always give you a game you can potentially win
Creepy ad noise you can't get rid of!!!
by Aud33n on 2017/03/10 07:54
So I just downloaded this app after playing the game online for the first time yesterday and I was so excited and when I opened it first an ad popped up that I closed and now there's a very loud audio clip of a girl groaning at different volumes that just repeats and repeats and there's no way to get rid of it except presumably spending money on this app and that's ridiculous I shouldn't be creeped out by some groaning girl creepy audio and feel manipulated into paying you money to make it go away and be able to play this game. Deleting this app right now how absolutely disappointing and unsettling.
Ads Don’t Honor Sound Settings
by Ruf One on 2020/05/07 17:08
I understand the need for ads in free apps, but if my phone is silenced, it’s often for a reason. And if an ad pops up at full volume despite my phone being silenced, it’s a problem. This is becoming more and more of a problem with ads, so a few months ago I made it my personal policy to immediately delete any app that behaves this way, give it a one star rating and add this explanation. Each time I’ve ended up with a similar app that I liked better, so it’s actually working out that this poor ad behavior is benefiting the competition by getting me to try new options.
ads ads and you guessed it ads
by A happy and mad person on 2019/07/31 20:02
each time you lose or advance to another level your brought to another add, ketchap is notorious for completely face f@?$ing you with apps (excuse my language) many other games show ads every now and again however when you complete the challenges it doesn’t take you that long, i’d say 45 seconds tops, so basically every 45 seconds i’m meant with a new add about some ketchap game. ALL ketchap games are riddled with ads about other terrible ketchap games
Totally awesome!
by SUfan13 on 2019/12/07 06:54
I love this game! It’s such a simple concept that has no simple solutions! It really challenges my brain to think hard about my next move and how much it affects the one after that. Challenge mode does the same thing, except you have to pay close attention to the moves you have left. I LOVE this game! Wouldn’t change a single thing about it. - Liza Duran
Fun way to pass time
by ToddL812 on 2017/12/17 04:58
Enjoy playing this game over some of the included games on iOS. It’s simple to learn but challenging with higher levels. One bug that would be great to see fixed is if I’m doing a challenge and go to another app, move away from the game app, or my phone goes to sleep/locks I have to start over when I come back - would be great to preserve where I am especially if I’m about to pass a level.
Fix the bug!
by JenCBear on 2016/09/21 21:30
Let me say first that this is a great game - very simple yet completely addictive. However, it often crashes on me if I have to leave the game to do something else, like open a different app, check email or reply to a text. I don't "close" the app, but when I go back to it, all of my work is gone and the game is completely blank, starting at square one again. SO FRUSTRATING!! The first time it happened, it was no big deal - I thought "huh" did I close it by mistake? And started over again. But then it happened again after reaching the 4096 tile, and just now, I lost an 8192 tile. Very. Mad. What are the circumstances that I can sit and play, uninterrupted, for the time it takes to reach that 8192 tile again?!! Honestly it makes me want to abandon the game altogether because it's just not worth my time to invest that much energy in reaching an achievement that won't even get recorded. Fix the bug. Please.
12+?
by killer kid333 on 2019/05/23 00:42
Why is this game 12+? I have played for a long time and there are no references to what it says under 12+! But this is a great game. Super fun and addictive. But with my new restrictions saying I can’t have 12+ apps, I can’t play! I’m fine with not being able to download Fortnite and stuff like that, but why this? Love this game but please change to 4+ as this is not inappropriate.
Pretty good!

I like this game because it's fun and challenging. It also doesn't take up that much storage. It's a good way to pass time too. I don't like that when there's an ad and u press the x, it STILL takes you to the App Store, and an ad comes up every time you open the game, even when it's been five seconds. Overall a great game id recommend if you can put up with ads and being taken to the app store
Love the quiet game, hate the full volume ads

The game is fun, challenging with an element luck that stop you from always winning, but when you are finished you are rewarded with an ad that is often hard to get out of. If the ad is quiet, I can wait for the x to show and move on, but when the ads are loud, I have to either quickly exit or quickly turn off the sound. This could be solved simply by adding a volume setting, and not allowing the ads to reset it. Please fix this so I can give you a 5 star rating
Turn ad sound off! PLEASE!!!!

Update, tried playing again and sound in ads still there. I had to immediately get out of app. I won't be going back in until I know for sure sound on ads is disabled. I'm HIGHLY disappointed!! Once again, with the latest update, the sound in ads cannot be turned off. I play in places where any sound is unacceptable. Therefore, until the sound on ads can be turned off, I cannot play.
Good game - terrible ads

The game itself is pretty fun and addictive. It’s a great game to jump in and out of throughout the day. But they play ads after every game and even if you have the game sound off, the phone on silent, THE ADS STILL PLAY AT FULL VOLUME!!! Fix this! I set my phone silent settings to cover everything. I should have to turn my phone volume down when I’ve set the app settings to silent. Ads are part of this app, they should follow the protocol of the app. Get rid of this ad feature and I’ll give it a 5-star rating.
Almost five star!

I play this game daily! It can be really challenging! I’ve learned a strategy, but still haven’t made it past the 2048 tile! I love the brain boggling though! Only reason I won’t give it that last star yet is because multiplayer mode or playing with others has never worked for me! I think it’ll make the game more interesting, but I can never get it to work! Please fix multiplayer!

I can not believe how stupid people are.I have a iPad 2, and it is OLD. It does not have any glitches as far as I know.😀 You people should be greatful that you even GET to play this game, many people cannot afford to even GET the device to play the game. It is a free and cool game... And it could use some updates. But is still cool and you haters should be greatful to play.
Yeah... I like it.

So it's a pretty good game and also addicting... but it's one of those games that you love for a while and then forget about it. There needs to be something that drags you towards the game for longer then just "a little while." So one problem is the fact that there are too many ads. It just bothers me. The game overall is awesome and I do recommend it. The idea of the game is fun and a great idea. So, yeah... I like it.
