Let’s Gremlins play 2048 !

2048 : a very famous game where you have to slide the numbered tiles to join same numbers, and cumulate them to obtain 2048 !

Now, do you know Marmelab to brute force test web application : it’s like releasing on your app thousand gremlins clicking every where, typing non-sense input on keyboard, so they may detect breaches in your app.

Ok, so I mixed the two of them, and I get  2048Gremlins ! It’s like letting the gremlins play 2048 !

Disclaimer !

  • quick and dirty code here. I just wanted to show it’s possible :-)
  • only for Firefox : sorry for webkits engine (chrome, safari, …) but keyboard simulation does only work in Firefox (until someone points me to the solution for webkit :-) )
  • Gremlins are bad at 2048 :-) random isn’t a good strategy to access high scores :-)

It was fun to hack those wonderfull projects and it made me learn more things about gremlins.js.
