Hi Roice,

I’m glad that you like this puzzle. And thanks for the links to previous posts. I don’t remember David Vanderschel’s program and the fact that it supported reflection. And I only remember the conversation in this group about reflection after I joined in 2010.

But I don’t feel bad about it. Before I implemented it, I played it using 3^4. I found it a very neat puzzle to solve: not tedious, but also not trivial. And I didn’t expect mirror + and mirror X were so different when solving them. Then I decided that it deserved more attention so I went on and made the puzzle.

So, does any one know of more reflection based puzzles that were implemented, like in 4D?
