[prMac.com] Rochester, New York - Single player games are a breed of their own. Unlike in chess or backgammon there is no opponent and at times not even a winner. We play these games because they provide a moment of respite - a chance to wrap one's thoughts around something non-vital yet challenging. These games are less about winning and more about spending some time "away."
Space 2048 emphasizes the mini-vacation aspect of the single-player game and moves us right into outer space. The backdrops are some of the most fantastic images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope with captions in the lower left screen to inform us if we are looking at the Antennae Galaxies, the Mystic Mountain or maybe the famous Ring Nebula.
Contributing greatly to the already quite fantastic atmosphere is the aural landscape of the game. It consists of deep rumbling sound effects that comment on the merging of planets, the achievement of a new level in moves or points and an entire soundtrack. The latter is barely audible at the beginning and slowly evolves into a part of the game's soundscape.
Game pieces are rotating planets expensively rendered in 3D each with their distinct character, some earth-like, some volcanic and some with moon. They are moved via the on-screen arrow buttons, WASD or arrow keys on the keyboard.

Space 2048 makes for ideal casual entertainment. The galactic backgrounds become more dramatic the further along you get in your game and you keep adding new planets. The soundtrack specifically written for Space 2048 enhances the overall atmosphere as soft background component. And most importantly there still is the challenge - to get to the magic number. Space 2048 is enabled for Family Sharing and really is great entertainment for the entire family.
