The concept behind the design of a sliding puzzle game like 2048 is not entirely new. The truth of the matter is that this type of puzzle has been around since the 1800s. A Postmaster from Canastota, New York named Noyes Palmer Chapman invented the first-ever number-based sliding puzzle game called 15-Puzzle. Unlike its modern counterparts, 15-Puzzle features a 4×4 frame with 15 numbered tiles, of which the player must arrange in order to solve.
