In this tutorial we will build Make2048 -- a clone of the popular mobile game 2048. The gameplay itself is simple but coding the game comes with some puzzles and challenges. You will learn a lot in the next couple of hours! We will use Apple's new Swift programming language together with SpriteBuilder and Cocos2D.
