Puzzle Game 2048 Tricks
In here we will discuss 4 x 4 tiles, only. There are so many developers have made this game on Google Play and iTunes, and it comes with so many variation, one of them is an undo button to make the game a lot easier.
Sort The Tiles Orderly
This is the most important part of the game, if you don’t place your tiles right, you’ll lose faster and hard to get a bigger number because your movement will be stuck. It depends on preference, and I prefer to put higher numbers on the top right (the first row), the second row left to right, the third row right to left, and the forth row left to right. To put into perspective, here is an example.
With this order you can easily add all numbers from the bottom right all the way to the left then up then go the far right, up and so on until you get the biggest number at the top right.
Move The Tiles Wisely
In the original game there’s no back button to undo your action, this makes the game more challenging because computer would place the new number in an annoying place that could break your movement pattern, so in this case you have to think few steps forward like in the chess or your tiles will be stuck.
Make Big Numbers
If there’s a small number stuck between big numbers, then merge the small number first and don’t let big numbers stuck around it (below, left, right) or it becomes a dead tile, means you can’t use the tile, and it doesn’t help the surrounding also. Remember, each tile is important in 4 x 4 tiles puzzle game 2048.
Need More Luck
The game is not all about math because it needs luck, hope a new tile doesn’t appear in an annoying place that could hold your movement. However, if you needed more luck, you could always install this game from other developers that has undo feature, for example this one
Swipe Right and Left
If you have merge all possible tiles, you need a new tile without any particular movement, in that case swipe right (and left if there are 4 tiles on the top row or no numbers that can be merged) to produce new tiles and don’t swipe down (if you place the higher numbers at the top). Swiping up or down would make the new tile appears in an annoying place.
This would happen in extreme cases, if there was no other way, you already had the 4096 number, a small number accidentally stuck between bigger number, then you need to find your way out of this and make your higher numbers back on the top again.
