Well I made it to 7040 with a bit of flailing.I think the trick is to build high-powers of two but try to keep them in the corners or edges. But it's really hard! In my last game (last game ever I swear) I ended up with an archipelago of a 512, 256, 128, 64, 32, 2x16 etc. I couldn't keep them from getting separated!

8500! Excellent.The hard part is dealing with stranded block sequences such as 2 4 2 4.

16380Looks better to put the highest number in the middle of the first row rather than in a corner

QuoteOriginally posted by: Vanubis116380Looks better to put the highest number in the middle of the first row rather than in a cornerInteresting! It seemed to me that "high tile in the middle" tended to create stranded tile configurations (e.g., 64 512 64). Maneuvering the Nth-highest tiles around a highest tile seemed prone to reaching a game-over condition because each shift of the tiles lead to the addition of another low tile until all the squares were filled.But I bow to your high score!
