This game, recently invented (March 2014) by Gabriele Cirulli, is gaining popularity due to both its simplicity and complexity!
The only goal is to create a tile containing the number 2048. You do this by sliding the numbered tiles around (using the arrow-keys). When two identical numbers meet, they merge by adding up. This allows you to generate powers of 2, but it will get exponentially harder as you get further along!
For more information on the game, I refer to the Wikipedia entry at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2048_%28video_game%29.
This implementation, I must admit, is poorly documented, because it was just an afternoon project. I think however that the code is pretty much self-documenting. If not, you are free to ask anything!
Have fun and post your high-scores for some nice competition! :-D

* Updated the description (sorry I forgot!), no need to download the linspecer package anymore.
* Removed 'linspecer' dependency by hardcoding the colormap. Still, kudo's to the author!
