Game #393
Faces: Tris 3  
Puzzle   Tetris variant

Rating: 7.71 (21 votes)

Faces: Tris 3 box cover

Faces: Tris 3 screenshot
Facesis similar to Wordtrisin its assemble-falling-pieces-into-a-recognizable-item concept: your task is to assemble different parts of a face properly (e.g. nose above mouth, etc.) to make it disappear. Assembling a "perfect" face (i.e. all parts belong to the same individual) yields a bigger score. The game, however, is marred by pieces being too undifferentiated from each other that makes gameplay overly frustrating. Good concept over all, but poor execution and little variety in falling pieces.
