There are two modes: one-player and two-player. You can use GAME SELECT to switch between them (the selected game will auto-start).
On the title screen, the left joystick button will start a single-player game, and the right joystick button will start a two-player game. When a game is over, the buttons restart the game appropriately.
This mode follows the original 2048 as closely as possible.
Move the joystick to shift the tiles into a direction. Tiles with the same value will join, and you'll earn the joined tile's value in points (shown above the board).
You win by forming the 2048 tile. The game continues until there is no movement possible, and the current high score will be displayed below the board.
The high score will be erased if you turn the console/emulator off (it's an Atari game, after all) or if you start a two-player game.
Both players use same board in turns. The current player is the one with the bright score, and keeps playing (and scoring) as long as they keep merging. If a shift happens and no tile is merged, it's the other player's turn.
The game ends when there is no possible movement, and the player with the highest score wins. Either fire button restarts the two-player game.
The game supports PAL Atari systems - just change the TV TYPE switch to the B/W position (the COLOR position is NTSC).
On the Browser
On an Emulator or a Real Atari
If you are running on a PAL Atari/TV, put the TV TYPE switch on the B•W position.
