Poor swipe detection
A slightly diagonal swipe can get interpreted as a different direction than you meant. The game needs to wait for a little bit longer swipe before moving the tiles. I've played several 2048 games, and this is the only one that misinterpreted swipes. I played this game once, up to 256, and it had already misinterpreted 2 swipes. Forget it, that's way too twitchy swipe detection for this kind of game.
UPDATE: the developer says I was touching the screen with multiple fingers, and to turn off the “extended swipe” feature. But I wasn’t touching with multiple fingers. I reinstalled the game and turned off extended swipe. The game still interprets even super-slight movement of my ONE fingertip as a full swipe. It’s still way too sensitive and interprets touch input before there’s enough input to accurately identify the overall direction of the swipe. I’m using an iPhone 6.
Try the new 3.0 version which includes updated swipe detection.
Good additions to this game
I almost wrote a 3 Star because I thought I couldn’t restore my purchases, but I was just using the wrong Apple account. I did have to delete the app so now all my progress is gone, but I can probably catch up. I like that the undo button can only be used once after swiping, but the block changes to a different place. At least there is an option for that in case you don’t want to “cheat”. The swipe anywhere feature is good so if your swiping fast it won’t cover the screen. I think time trial was always there, but it’s still cool to have in this game.
Good balance of difficulty and no re-do make this simple and addictive little game particularly rewarding. Pay the price and ditch the ads for max enjoyment.
I only have a few games on my IOS devices and this one that I’ll be keeping for good.
Good support too. I complained about a small problem and got a response in less than an hour. Kind of amazing really.
