I’m not sure that puzzles in 4D will be on the same logical level as in 2D. There may be more simple puzzles, like move one block to the place in the same room, find the way to push the block through a hole in the wall, turn from some 2D pass to perpendicular 2D pass etc. And only, say, on 10th level of difficulty there will be place for really logical puzzles
