Split Personalities was a computer game developed by Ernieware. It was originally released on the Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, and ZX Spectrum in Europe in 1986. It was ported to the Game Boy in 1993 by Enigma Variations, courtesy of Richard Naylor. A Game Gear version called Crazy Faces was made, but was never released. Fortunately, the ROM is preserved online. Crazy Faces will not receive a page on this site, as it lacks music.

Split Personalities is a sliding puzzle game; the player must put together a puzzle which is a picture of a celebrity within the allotted time. Some of these celebrities include Ronald Reagan, Marilyn Monroe, Abraham Lincoln, and Albert Einstein. To get puzzle pieces out on the playing field, the player selects the top-left block. However, sometimes the block which can either help or hurt the player. Some of these involve combining one with another to gain points or time, while others cause you to lose a life.

Interestingly, the game saw release in Europe and Japan, but not the United States, which is even more interesting considering some of the characters in the game are American celebrities.
