12 Mins To 9

12 Mins to 9 is a RISC OS desktop version of the popular 2048 puzzle game, originally written by Gabriele Cirulli.

The game is played on a 4x4 grid. The game starts with two random tiles with a value of 2 or 4 placed on the grid.

A screenshot of a game in progress, with the game board partially filled with tiles ranging in value from 2 to 256.

Slide the tiles left, right, up or down. The tiles will slide as far as they can go in the direction you choose. They will only stop if they collide with another tile or the edge of the grid.

If two tiles of the same value collide, they will merge into one tile with the combined value of the two previous tiles. The aim of the game is to progressively combine tiles to get larger and larger numbers, until you reach the 2048 tile. The secondary aim is to score as many points as possible.
