Everyone, everywhere is addicted to 2048. It’s the number one free game in the Apple iOS store, and seems to be all anyone is talking about. But according to Venturebeat, “The only problem is that it’s a copycat game, as Sirvo, the makers of Threes pointed out in an open letter a couple of days ago.
