Was there a 3-D Tetris type arcade game that was harder than Blockout? Like one where the pieces were actual falling rather than floating at the top until you dropped them. I remember playing a game like this in 1991, but I don't know if the blocks had initial descent or not.

I'm pretty sure the pieces auto-drop in Block Out - I've the Megadrive version and that's the way it works..

Welltris may be what you're thinking of, try googling that one or youtube.  I had this back in the early 90s but it's a dusty memory now.  3D-Tetris is real though, Virtual Boy game.

I was gonna say Welltris too, but I find Welltris a lot easier than Blockout. I guess maybe it depends on how your brain's wired and what you can more easily "see" as far as where a block's going to land and how it's going to fit with the other pieces. I found it easier to visualize a piece's final position in Welltris.

 

I just played Blockout on an old PC a little while ago and the blocks in that version, at least, do fall on their own, just slowly at first like any other version of Tetris.
