[Found: Numerix] Obscure PD Shape Fitting Game

I am trying to rack my brains to remember the name of a PD game I played back in the day. Must have been 90-92.

It was one of those fit the shapes into the grid games, now before you start groaning, I am aware that there was roughly 96.7 billion games like that for the Miggy but this one has a very distinctive look, it had a brown or red colour scheme and nice graphics. I think it began with a T something like tess... Something.

Any ideas?

I think I remember that, was it made in AMOS? trying to think of the name now, I think when I played it, that it was on one of the Assassins PD disks so I'm going to try find it.

Thanks Devlin, greatly appreciated. I'm afraid I don't know if it was an AMOS game or not.

Yes s2325 it was that type of game but not that actual one.

I'm going to just rifle off whatever I find that matches or gets close to what you're looking for (this could involve multi-posting, sorry mods)

I remember something similar was this an IQ game? As I remember a game like that and I think it was AGA also, were you dragged and dropped shapes into an area but you didn't visibly see it, one of these brain teasers.

Sorry, I have no links to anything Cubulus related. The name of the game just dropped into my head when I read this thread.

If it's http://hol.abime.net/3143 rules are different as you need to match colors, not shapes.

Is that some sort of "flat" Rubik's cube (judging from the screenshots)?

Yes but it's harder as there are so many blocks. Only one in-game screenshot must be for some reason.

I am terribly sorry for resurrecting such an old thread but 5 years after posting this I finaly found the game!! It's called Numerix a public domain game released in 1993 by Gary Brown & Neal Boyd. the game play is not exactly like I remember it, you place pieces on a board to score points rather than simply to fit the pieces together, but this is defiantly the game and I have had a blast playing it again, super game!
