blockout in 4d

hi all,

i would like to see a 4d (4 dimensional) version of blockout created using 3d sections. the blocks can also be rotated in the 4th dimension too. it will be interesting

i checked the current 4d tetris games like hypertetris, polytope tetris, 4dtris, frac 4d but none of them looked good. frac 4d had strange pieces and a part of the board got hidden as well

i would like to see blockout extending to the 4th dimension as well using 3d sections, just like in frac 4d, but the board should be horizontal like in blockout, not vertical like frac 4d

Thank you. It's first time I hear about tetris in 4d. Amazing!

I have a future plan to work on this, maybe I will do it in next 3-5 years. It will be similar to Frac 4D using cross sections and it will be based on Extended mode as Extended mode will be best suited to 4D. Some pieces will get reduced as they will be super imposable on their mirror image in 4D just like how some 2D pieces of tetris got super-imposed on their mirror image in blockout. Some new 4D pieces will be added of 5 hypercubes which will have a central hypercube and 4 additional hypercubes in the 4 dimensions. These new 4D pieces will add to the complexity
