Faces...Tris III (Spectrum Holobyte, 1991 or so)

The third in the series of Russian strategy games, Faces is the least interesting of them all, providing relatively little interest and even less challenge. The object is simply to put faces together from a variety of pieces which fall from the ceiling, though, even at the higher levels of difficulty, the game play is too slow and laid back to be very interesting, and it doesn't require the thought or strategy of Tetris, which was a far more interesting game. Though it has fine graphics and sound, that isn't enough to make a game of this sort worth playing. Faces is better avoided.
