Step 1: Download or Update Google Chrome: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html
Step 2: Download and UnZip Archon: https://github.com/vladikoff/chromeos-apk/blob/master/archon.md
and 2048: https://github.com/vladikoff/chromeos-apk/releases/download/v1.1.0/com.uberspot.a2048.android-OFFICIAL.zip
Step 3: In Chrome, navigate to settings / extensions
Step 4: Check the Developer box at the top right
Step 5: Load both extensions above. Archon first, followed by 2048. You may see a few errors, nothing to worry about.
Step 6: Launch 2048.
Having trouble? Try the following:
Update chrome, update to windows 8.1 if possible (I can confirm this works on windows 8.1, 10 tech preview, and OS X Yosemite). Try again.
go to chrome://flags/, turn off software rendering list. Restart and try again. Try turning on “Native Client”. Restart and try again.
If you’re still not having luck and are interested, I think there’s a few other APK emulators out there worth a try. Bluestacks being one of them: http://www.bluestacks.com/
