Permutation is a simple puzzle game, based on the 15-puzzle. This is the web version of the game. Permutation is also available as an app! The official website is below.

Your goal is to slide tiles on a 5 x 5 game grid to form sequences of increasing powers of 2.

After each move, a new tile is placed. Plan your moves carefully, so that you can form as many sequences as you can before the grid fills up. Clear the largest tile to add more valuable tiles to the rotation, and score more points!

[Web Instructions]
Click on the margins to slide the entire row or column's tiles in the desired direction.

The controls are fine, the game is a great logic puzzle. Enjoyed it very much.

I was expecting something simpler, like 2048. The margins are hard to control at times.

I'm not sure how happy I am with the margin controls, either. This is really designed to be a mobile game--and rows and columns are swiped. I tossed a variety of other options around, and clicking the margins seemed to be smoother than, say, click+drag. I've been getting some good feedback, though, and may be able to figure out something a bit more intuitive.

Horrible controls, confused as to even play.

I revised the built-in tutorial that launches the first time the game is loaded. That should clear up any confusion about the controls.
