2048 etc.


Hit flash game 2048 has gone the way of Flappy Bird in that it has inspired spinoff upon spinoff. These include Doge 2048, 3D 2048, Isotopic 256 (one which includes elemental decay), 144 (which allows the combination of anywhere from 2 to 5 tiles), and many others. In addition to just being an interesting cultural phenomenon regarding the creation and dispersal of media, it also is proving to be an interesting exercise in the computer science sense in that many of these spinoffs have been simple side projects of bored CS students, looking to gain coding experience.
