Default Old puzzle game

Hey guys,

I am looking for a game name for quite a while and I thought local pros might help me out. What I remember (some of that might not be true):

-DOS game probably
-Platformer / Puzzle mix (I think some kind of block-pushing took place. Ladders maybe?)
-Yellow / brown colours, I actually think the game was set in ancient Egypt
-When you finished a level, new levels unlocked. It depended on what level you finished. (I remember this because I only had a demo of the game and was able to play let's say only 5 levels or so. By finishing different levels it was possible to unlock more different levels, so you were able to play more than 5 distinct levels by choosing another branch each time).
-Level selection screen was some kind of arranged / tiled squares with engraved pictures.

I would be very grateful for any help.

Yes, it looked kind of like Puzznic, the graphics were definitely VGA and I think the game was newer. But you controlled a character and I do not think there was a HUD.

Is it similar to Montezuma's Revenge, or Pharoah's Tomb?

It was very similar to Pharaoh's Tomb, but as I said, definitely VGA.
