Hiya, Thanks for taking the time to start this project, and to post on the DOSGames forums :) DOSGames.com offers freeware, shareware, demos, and similarly freely distributed games.

It sounds like a clone of Qix, it may be one of the games on this list ...

Take a look and see if it's one of those. Maybe Xonix?

Okay fair enough. The puzzle in Torin's Passage looks pretty identical to the second pic that's the reason I thought it might be it :) Three by three nine tiles with black lines on green which have to be arranged to form a face: http://www.mobygames.com/game/torins-passage/hints/hintId,10368/picture...
