2048 is a web-based game by Gabriele Cirulli, a 19-year old programmer in Northern Italy who likely just wrote the best resume he ever could have written–a super addictive HTML5 based game that’s mobile responsive and has the plus of being fun to play. I heard about the game from Kevin Marks on TWiG #241. He’s even been referenced by xkcd, which is the geek equivalent of a having your name on a star on Hollywood Boulevard.
The game has 16 tiles, and you start with two tiles with either a ’2′ or a ’4′. In each move, you swipe tiles either left, right, up or down, in order to match numbers and eliminate tiles.
While I work on my score, I’m grinning quietly to myself thinking how this guy just got himself a red carpet to any job he wants–or no job if he chooses to monetize this baby.
Good luck, Gabriele. Way to go. P.S. I’m hiring!!
