The beginning of the game: Two tiles spawn at random positions with random values (either 1 or 2).

'1024' is a one man project and an adaptation of the mobile-app '2048' by Gabriele Cirulli. It was written in Java using BlueJ, with the Engine.Alpha and GIMP for the graphics. At the beginning of the game two tiles with either a 1 or a 2 spawn on the 4x4-board (originally 2 and 4). The player can now tilt the board in one of the four directions up, down, left and right. This makes all number tiles slide in the corresponding direction, merging with equally numbered tiles on contact and forming a new tile with the combined value of both. After each turn of the player, a new tile spawns randomly. When every field on the board has a tile on it and merging is impossible, the game is over.
