Default Looking for an old physics/puzzle game for years

Hey guys I am looking for a physics-puzzle game for a long long time.I played it only once or teice by chance when I was a kid. I don't remember the name. What I remember are:

1. I played it on PC before 1997. It should be a dos or win95 game, definitely not or later than win98. I would say it's more on the dos side since I don't remember it had an icon.

2. The graphic style is clear and clean, not as old as CGA mode. It should be a side-view game like super mario. Should not be top-down because gravity exists. The screen is fixed, no side-scrolling.

3. There were just a lot of levels without much storytelling. The player plays as a little girl( or boy?) who tries to move several objects (boxes) to designated locations. The idea is quite like Sokoban, but there are some necessary tools involved. So you need some mechanics/physics ideas to work it out. Similar to incredible machine.

4. There's no presetting like in fantastic contraption you set up a vehicle and press start. It is totally real-time and you need some micro skills to do things in time. Similar to lost vikings.

5. In my memory, this game is not in English, perhaps French or Spanish. However, I am not a native speaker of any of these languages and I might made up this thought as a kid. It's not Japanese, though.

6. It was very interesting and tricky for me then. I played Sokoban at that time but liked this game much more...just didn't know I would have no chance to play it in the rest of my life...

All the clues I gave are not accurate and may be incorrect or even opposite to some extent. But I believe it is enough for people who have played THIS game to identify. I went through puzzle section in Abandonia but didn't find it. Basically it is a side-view sokoban game with much flavor of physics. If you know it or any remotely alike ones, please let me know! Thanks a lot!!

Thanks, but it seems not

I vaguely remember that it looks newer than this one. Chances are there's no grids.

I would say it looks more like a screen shot of super mario: broad sky background; player moving on the horizon; just a few, not many playable items around.
