    WARNING! Addicting puzzle-strategy game. May cause lack of sleep!

    Out of all the puzzle games I've played, Lemmings is still at the top of my list. When I used to be young, I always used to play Lemmings on my Amiga. In fact, I never actually finished the game. I got to the mayhem diff... Read Full Review

    A classic puzzle game that is completely unique and has yet to be replicated successfully

    Lemmings was a novel puzzle game introduced at the height of PC gaming in 1991, taking off like wildfire and inspiring dozens of sequels. The player must save a requisite number of the lemming population on each level. L... Read Full Review

    A cart on the long train of Lemmings games.

    Graphics: Obviously you'll notice more detail and work was put into the environment rather than the characters themselves, but then again they are just little lemmings, why push it further than need be? All of the pixel ... Read Full Review

    A very basic game but a very fun game nontheless

    Lemmings introduces a new concept that I have honestly never seen before in the gaming world. It is a game where your job is to guide the lemmings from point A all the way over to point B in diverse stages that have man... Read Full Review

    The original version of PC crack.

    Here's the best way to describe Lemmings: If you're a stereotypical PC gamer you probably enjoy blood and guts FPS action or the high brow satisfaction you get from beating a RTS game like Starcraft. So imagine such a... Read Full Review

    Oh no. lemmings!

    This game is absolutely brilliant. It got me the first time i saw it. There are these hordes of lemmings dropping down from a hole in the sky and it's your task to safely guide them to the exit of each level. Each level ... Read Full Review
