<DOS> Puzzle game with portraits [Facetrex]

Post by Guest » Wed Apr 30, 2014 6:33 am

Hi! I'm searching for a dos-based puzzle game. Some things I remember:

- It has movable portraits or faces. The goal, if I recall correctly, is to gather the faces into their appropriate slots in the grid.
- The background is a magenta grid (approximately 8x12). The faces slide on the grid as far as they can, until some kind of special block in the grid blocks them.
- Making the moves in the right order is crucial. There are some special blocks on the board, such as turning blocks, and if I remember correctly, some of them could only be used once.
- There were at least 20 different levels to the game, each harder than the previous.
- I played this game between the years 1997-2000 (I know, not very helpful). There was a demo of it on a CD called '100 Kids' Games'.

I would love to find this game or at least find out what it is called, it has been bugging my mind for so long. Thank you for any help! :bday:

Soleausoft had a game sort of like this I think. It was called Facetrex:
