Strategy tip: Try to keep your highest tile in a corner, and the next highest tiles close to that corner, in an edge. It makes life far easier, as it becomes very difficult to have two high value tiles with the same value that you can't match to each other.

Yes, if at all possible, always push everything towards a single corner. And never move your biggest numbers if possible.

I wonder if the fact that it lets you continue past a 2048 tile is a bug or a feature. The forced engame helped the game not drag on for 30 minutes, but it also made comparing scores pretty pointless: It's very hard to score more than 21k or so if you have to stop the second you get the 2048 tile.

I did a quick experiment to see what score I would get if I just kept doing RDLU (right, down, left, up) over and over. I got 4588.

Did another experiment where I tried to never press down. I mainly used left and right and stacked all the big numbers to the top. I got 17416.

If you are finding this version too easy you could try it's big brother:

Join the numbers and get to the 9007199254740992 tile!

After about 6 hours of running that on "Move Randomly with 1ms intervals" I got:

Highest digit combined into: 262144
Score:7975020
Space left to move: Roughly half the squares are still availible...

So, it doesn't look like that is going to finish anytime soon... Time to log off/go home.

As it only adds 2 to the total numbers on the board every millisecond you would need a billion years to get to the number 9001799254740992.

Finally got to tile 2048. I kept going to see what score i could finally get and made it to 25,184, but didn't get to tile 4096.

Are you meaning "Adding 2" or did you really mean to say doubles which is what it does (basically you only see numbers of base 2).


Edit: Oh, I now see your point. Generally a 2 is added every ms with an occasional 4 and even more rarely an 8. If just a 2, only 86.4 million points added in a day. Which would mean 104,187,492 days or nearly 285,250 years. That's just to get all the tiles to add up to the target #, but wouldn't give you the target tile. So, yeah, a very long time.
