If i understand well the game, blocks fall in the 4th dimension and you have to make cube ?
It seems that when you rotate the block doesn\'t fall ?

I tried you game and i have few suggestions:

- Try to implement smooth rotation, it is already hard to play in 3D, so in 4D....
- Try to change transparency settings, it is often confusing, I mean it\'s difficult to understand the shape of the block.

Still some works to finalize but amazing game :)

@simzer: very clever idea to avoid movements by restricting to 2x2x2xn , and to concentrate on rotations only!!

by the way, if you have some spare time, feel free to add your clones of blockout and your 4D tetris to the wiki here on the blockout.net! if you dont have time, i will do it by myself next week.

by the way, i am programming a blockout and tetris clone, too:
http://www.cubestorm.com (but it is in its very early stage, just released yesterday a \"pre-alpha\" :pinch: i hope it does not crash to often ;)

oh thanks :-)
of course - its freeware, so are the ideas in this game :-)

by the way - did you noticed the \"gravity gun\" ? try pressing left control key! you can suck up pieces already landed in the playfield and re-place and rotate them.

Hi,

I added a page for Polycubes in the Wiki.
I\'m going to add a page for 4DTris (I already added a link to the 4DTris YouTube video on the Wiki home)

Feel free to correct/modify want you want.

I had no idea that that mount of tetris types exist

And not all versions are referenced. Look at this page.
Still some works on the Wiki ;)

The only critic I can tell is the menu navigation. Moving with up/down button in the sub menu would be more hendable for me.

You\'re right. The DOS like interface for the menu is funny but
not really useful. Maybe, I\'ll redo some parts of it in a next
release.

Thanks for adding the wiki page.

You\'re welcome :) Don\'t hesitate to modify/correct what you want.
This is just a draft.<br><br>Post edited by: jlp_38, at: 2008/01/29 00:34
