PC racing game with beautiful Japanese island landscape

I remember a PC racing game with winding up and down road, with a Japanese island landscape (amongst other themes). You would be racing with a car or some flying thing, racing against computer players, maybe with some simple weapons to eradicate opponents. Roads would surprisingly split up and you would need to decide which alternative to follow. Era is probably DOS, 256 or 16M colors. Good music included (which is what gave me the flashback). Thanks heaps.

I can't have imagined this computer game! Falling faces?

I'm trying to remember a computer game I had years back, but I can't for the life of me find it. It was a falling bricks game (like Tetris) but the pieces were one of four parts of several different faces - the hair, the eyes, the nose and mouth, and the chin and neck. The idea was to make a complete face that would then disappear from the board (again, like in Tetris). You could do mix and match faces, but you got more points for doing a whole matching face. If you let, for instance, too many mouths pile up on each other and reach the top, you lost. There were different levels, and the faces changed with each level. Does anybody else know of this? It would have been a Mac game, sometime during the 90's. I can't have just imagined this!

Yet another "trying to remember an old Mac game" question....

Trying to remember the name of an old mac computer game: Like chess, but the board could be set up differently, with blank spaces around which pieces had to move . Pieces moved like both checkers and chess. Some of them were "magical" -- could teleport to other spaces or serve as a wall. Certain spaces on the board were also magical -- destroying pieces, etc. Any ideas? Thanks.
