2048 for Swift

Geek Repo:Geek Repo

Github PK Tool:Github PK Tool


A working port of iOS-2048 to Apple's new Swift language.

Like the original Objective-C version, swift-2048 does not rely upon SpriteKit. See the description for iOS-2048 for more information.

I'm not actively working on this, except to fix bugs and maintain compatibility with latest versions. Pull requests are welcome, though. Note that Swift was very different back when I first wrote this code, caveat emptor.

If you want to check out a more advanced Swift project, please take a look at Lambdatron, my Clojure interpreter.


You will need Xcode 7 to run the project. Run it in the simulator or on an actual device.
