Triangular 2048

Update News, November 24th 2014: Uploaded a new version which has leaderboards instead of the option to post scores to twitter. Enjoy!

This variation of the popular 2048 game uses triangular board and game pieces instead of square ones.

It was developed mostly as an experiment, but turned out quite playable (at least once you figure out the controls.)

The controls are an extension of the standard WASD controls, including Q and E. You can either use keyboard keys or the clickable onscreen buttons, which are positioned to indicate the direction of movement.

Each click moves all pieces on the board, that can move in that direction, by one step. A piece can only move to one of the three bordering positions along its edges.

When two pieces with the same value move onto the same position, they merge into one tile with twice the value.

The goal is to keep combining pieces and reach the 2048 piece.

Nice, but I don't want to wait 10 seconds between every game for an add.

it would be nice to have medals or achievements similar to those of 2048
like to reach the 512 tile and to reach the 2048 tile itself

Challenging and fun game, but the controls are rather derpy.

I wish I could go beyond 2048. This game is far more challenging than the original, and weirdly satisfying. I would like it if I could go higher.

Beat it with the score of 18528. (with 256/128/64/32x2/16x2 as leftovers)
Feels just like any other 2048 game: easy concept once you're used to it, but at then you realize that it's about luck/strategy (mostly luck) over where next number will spawn.
It was hard with dealing with the fact there's no left/right movement but only diagonal at first.
I found amazing that it was actually my experience with techniques from the original 2048 that led me to win.
I kinda wish it would've allowed me a few more moves...
(I just noticed that my score is the same with the best one in the video :D )
