smash one and get under the next tile and start chipping away.
I would also cut out the grout joint so the tile next to it wont chip or loosen while removing the others.

Electric chisels always beat a hammer in my opinion,six year old thinset is pretty hard.

if this is 2x2 tile in the main part of the bathroom floor and not the shower then the electric hammer works.
