What's green-haired lovable and looking for trouble? Sounds like a Lemming and you've got your hands full of 'em trying to rescue thousands of the clueless little critters from gaping chasms roaring furnaces and swirling rivers. Keep'em climbing floating mining bridge building and digging--anything to keep them busy--and alive! You've gotta think fast and move even faster or it's curtains for the whole caboodle!
Lemmings--it's been a long time since those cute green haired things invaded our PCs. This version brings together the first two games (Lemmings and Oh No! More Lemmings), with a souped-up Windows interface, some pretty animations, updated sound and graphics just so you can begin to start saving the little beggars all over again.
Basically the idea is to steer these brainless guys through a load of hostile environments trying not to let too many fall to their death on the way. To help you in this quest you get to give your charges special skills, blocker (who makes all lemmings after him go back the way they came, diggers (who can dig tunnels which the others fall down) and even bomber lemmings which blow holes in walls. If you guide enough of the little blighters to safety you get to proceed through the levels as guardian of the future of the lemming race.
As you progress through the levels, the environments that the Lemmings have to steer become progressively more difficult. The number of skills, the amount of time, and the number of lemmings which you have can vary from level to level.
The main graphics don't appear to have evolved but there are a number of cool extras. You can play the game at low-res or hi-res. The first is perfect for a 640x480 setup, and the latter for 800x600. You can also "zoom in" for a close-up of various areas of the screen which is really handy to see whether a bridge is "pixel-perfect" or whether the lemmings are going to fall to their deaths off the end. All said this is great retro puzzle action. --Lindon Kenilworth

It retains its original gameplay and music with the added bonus of a fast forward button.
The graphics are much the same but the lemmings are now shown in greater detail. The cute animations of the task buttons are also a nice touch.
It is exactly as I remembered it and as frustratingly enjoyable as ever.
My only complaint is that the unique levels along with their unique music have been removed. (There was 1 level on each difficulty where the palette was vastly different - fun difficulty had a bunch of trees - and was accompanied by a one-off piece of music that followed the levels style.) A great loss.
On the whole, excellent. If you loved lemmings but don't have it anymore, get this now!
I can still remember spending many a happy evening at my Aunt's old Amstrad desperatly trying to beat it. Ah, the memories!
Frantic, fustrating and hilarious in equal measures with brilliantly designed puzzles, forget online gaming, there aint nothin as satisfying as finishing the last level.
Great music such as Mozart's Fur Elise accompany the game, as well as some classic nursery rhymes which all add a sense of urgency to the game. Get it now, do not delay! What more could anyone ask for 5 quid?
If you want to play the game and have it use a window bigger than the default size then you MUST use the File Menu entry File\Set Options... When the dialogue box opens you will see entries for "Graphics Options". There you MUST choose "High Resolution". If you don't do that and make the game window bigger than the default then the program will bomb-out as soon as you try to play any level. This might lead some people to think that the game doesn't work on their system, chances are it does - just make that setting if you want to use a larger than default window size (you will).
Another thing worth mentioning is that Lemmings is said to have hundreds of levels to work your way through. However, when you first go to play the game you only get offered one level (in each of the categories) to play. This doesn't mean you have been sold short. You have to complete one level before the next level is offered to play. (So the level list gets longer and longer as you play your way through them.)
The game is capable of being used as a portable. Do the following to make it as portable as possible without actually making a full-blown portable package of it:
1) Drag the folder "WINLEMM" on the CD to wherever you want on the hard-drive. You can rename the folder to anything you want - I used "Lemmings for Windows".Read more ›
1) opening the game - Windows 7 - Start button; computer; double click on the dvd drive icon; open the WINLEMM folder; click on the second of the lemmings icons (the one called LEMMINGS, not the one called LEMMING. The game will now open.
2) opening the game - Windows XP - My Computer; CD-ROM drive; WINLEMM folder; LEMMINGS icon (if you hover the curser over the icon it will be identified as an EXE file). The game will now open
3) Alternatively in both Windows 7 and XP if you wait a little while the screen driven by the CD ROM will open. Don't try for 'play' or 'autorun' - it won't work. Scroll down to the bottom of the options and click on 'open folder to view files'. Now you can open the WINLEMM folder and double click the second LEMMINGS icon as before.
If you find the game window is too small to play the game comfortably I found the solution was to : -
1) In the game window click 'file'
2) Select 'set options'
3) In 'Graphics options' select 'High resolution'
4) The size of the game window will now increase to a playable level.
Communication with the seller to resolve these problems was not the best.Read more ›
