Like 2048 but hate all that icky math?
Now there is a 2048 from That Peachey Thing that uses colors instead of numbers. It’s called 2048: White Out and the goal is to combine tiles of the same color until you eventually create a white tile.
The cool thing about this game is that there is less pressure since you don’t have so many numbers on the board and the pretty colors calm you down as you play.
The bad thing is that this game can get confusing with all these colors making other colors with no regard for the laws of the color wheel. It can be difficult to tell if you’re doing well unless you continuously check the value of your tiles against the color gradient at the top of the board. If you are a competitive 2048 player, you might be let down.
Maybe it’s just my eyes, but some of the colors start to look the same after a while. I have been tricked many times by empty tiles that looked peach or white. This game is definitely not the best choice for players with any level of color blindness. What I’m trying to say is that this version of 2048 will still give you a headache, just a different kind of headache.
2048: White Out lets you earn coins while you play. You can use the coins to buy new color themes. The most expensive theme is called “50 Shades of Gray” which is fine because we will never have enough coins to buy that and we wouldn’t want to anyway. It costs 1,000,000 coins.
If you don’t want to play your way to new themes, you can buy coins. That Hawaiian Sunset theme can be yours for just $3.99! Some of the other theme options include: Perfect Pastels, Atomic Bolds, Savanha Night, Jungle Fever (why?!?), and Razzle Dazzle. Some of the color themes have more distinct colors than others. Razzle Dazzle looks hard to see, as does Hawaiian Sunset. If you need a lot of variety, I’d recommend purchasing Atomic Bolds. Or you can check out one of the other (better) versions of 2048 here.
