Pretty sure this was made after Threes

The app 1024 is way more of a Threes clone though

Here is a discussion where the author of the original 2048 game says that he was inspired by 1024: . Apparently the 2048 author hadn't even heard of Threes. He made a free game, and made the source available too so that others could learn from it and build on it. That's great, nothing wrong with it at all, but it is a bit sad to see so many people who didn't build on it to make something new or better but just put it on the App Store or on ad-filled websites as is in hopes to get rich.

So adding numbers on a 4x4 grid is a genre now? I'm sticking with Threes. Can't see any clone improving on the ad-free polished piece

Given there are so many clones, is there a truly "official version" of 2048 that is the one created by Gabriele Cirulli?
the official version is the web version and it worls perfectly on iOS.

It was hard to find this thread, when you search "2048" lots of 2048s come up and not this one
