A downloadable Commodore 64 game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Slide the tiles around the board and collide identical numbers in order to climb up the power-of-two series until you achieve 2048. Each turn a new '2' or '4' stone will appear on the 4x4 grid, meaning that you'll have to choose your moves carefully. Every time you collide two or more tiles, your score increases by their merged value.
Originally an entrant in RGCD's 2014 C64 16KB Cartridge Competition, this final commercial version of the game features further visual improvements and minor bug-fixes (such as same speed music played on PAL and NTSC systems).
- Addictive puzzle action!
- Beautiful graphics and hires typography!
- An awesome SID soundtrack!
- Soft shift technology!
- Full PAL & NTSC compatibility!
For further information on the game, please check the press kit.
Playing C-2048 on Windows, Mac or Linux
Please note that the downloadable Commodore 64 version available here is primarily for use with emulators, but can also be run on a real C64 via hardware such as the 1541 Ultimate II or Turbo Chameleon. For emulator users, we recommend VICE, as it works on a variety of operating systems and is very user friendly. In fact, we've even included a pre-configured Windows, Mac and Linux version of the emulator with the download as well as some simple user instructions (we're nice like that).
