It’s sad that 2048tty got no attentions when it’s easily by far the best implementation I have ever played. Just one star and nothing else except 5 author self-opened issues.

You use hjkl to play.

As you can the animations above, not only the tiles get the sliding motion — which I’ve seen before in at2048 — but also the scoring, the just-earned points floating up. High score and progress is saved, so you can quit at anytime and continue playing later.

Even it’s graphics is designed, not just simply put a box around a number, but an oval-shaped tile. Not like there is anything wrong about rectangular box, but you can see who puts more thought on the graphics designs.
