I've been playing the 16384 flash game for a while now and while the shape is different, it seems to be very similar to 2084 in terms of gameplay. I used to be pretty good at 2048 back in the day, so I'll share some strategy for the Hex flash game:
- The winning strategy for 2048 was to keep your high numbers into one of the corners, so you got blocks of ascending numbers orderly stacked in subsequent layers. I've been trying this strategy for 16384 Hex and it seems to work well here too.
- What this means for the flash game is, quite unsurprisingly, that it's best to focus everything in one corner (I've been using the top right corner). The trick is to keep your high numbers in the corner by only using moves directed into the corner as much as possible. While I was using the top right corner, I mostly used moves targeted towards the top-right, top-left and right. If those moves weren't possible, I would use bottom-right and I would prevent moves targeted towards the left and bottom-left at all costs.
