Greetings, Please share your favorite Threes/2048 clones and derivative games. WHERE IT ALL STARTED Threes! By Sirvo Review Meticulously crafted and well deserving of its critical acclaim, this genre defining game was a collaboration of leading designers. 2048 by Ketchapp Article A simplified freeware version of threes. Now all tiles move to the edge with each swipe and only like tiles can be combined. (No more initial 1/2 combination) CLONES AND DERIVATIVES 1024 by Jason Saxon Appshopper Threes graphical style with 2048 gameplay and some additional modes. 2048 Match 3 by Mikhail Akopov Appshopper Basic 2048 graphical style combined with match 3 (only) gameplay. Instead of swiping you switch 2 tiles to combine groups of three. These groups retract into a single tile with double the value of the original tiles. It is not as intuitive as the original but somehow still works. 2048 Retro by Julius Sewing Appshopper 2048 beautifully rendered into a retro Gameboy graphical style. Unfortunately the sounds effects and music are lacking and could use a good chiptune downgrade. 7 Pips by unexpect3rd Appshopper This resembles 2048 in some ways such as the basic layout and use of numbered tiles. However it is different enough not to qualify as a clone. You place tiles individually and depending on the color, a value is added or subtracted from the surrounding tiles. 7's are taken off the board. It is a well conceived and designed game City 2048 by Andrew Kyznetsof Appshopper Basic 2048 gameplay with easily identifiable city building progression instead of numbers. Colords by Fernando Ruiz Thread This game combines 2048 gameplay with light RPG elements. The main board consists of four color coded and numbered classes. You upgrade the attack power of your classes by combining tiles. At right side of the board is a random selection of color coded enemies of progressively increasing strength. You defeat them by sliding corresponding classes of equal or greater value onto them. The resulting gameplay is very difficult but constitutes an enjoyable departure from the standard gameplay. RPSwipe by Ahmed Khalifa Forum This is one of the most intricate and strategic of the clones. It adds several layers onto the basic 2048 game. Tiles come in red and blue colors with rock, paper, or scissors emblems. Combine like tiles to increase the value of the emblem. Tiles of equal or greater value cancel analogous tiles of the opposing color. Blue scores from canceling red. It can also be played with multiplayer or against an AI. Overall an excellent take on the original formula. SideSwype by Radiangames Review This is a color-based block sliding game reminiscent of 2048 in terms of gameplay style. However, it has a match-3 foundation with numbered blocks representing higher match requirements in addition to special action blocks. Everything Radiangames touches turns to gold, and this is no exception. Templar 2048 by Daesung Park Forum Basic 2048 gameplay with easily identifiable medieval social class progression instead of numbers.
