Lemmings is one of the best puzzle computer games ever developed and is considered as one of the most widely-ported video games of all time. Lemmings was initially released for the Amiga computers and later ported to the Atari ST, PC (DOS), Apple Mac and almost all major home machines!
 
Review
LemmingsINFO
The popularity of the original version (Amiga) of the game, led to immediate ports to many other platforms: Panasonic 3DO, Acorn Archimedes, Amstrad CPC, Apple IIGS, Macintosh, Atari Lynx, Atari ST, Commodore 64, Amiga CD32 Amiga CDTV, MS-DOS, Nintendo NES, SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, MGT SAM Coupe, Sega Game Gear, Sega Master System, Sega Mega Drive (Genesis), Sinclair ZX Spectrum!

STORY / GAMEPLAY
The game is divided into a number of levels featuring both destructible landscape elements such as rocks and indestructible sections such as steel plates. There are also numerous obstacles including gaps, high walls, pools of water or lava spots and several traps. Each level includes one or more entrance points and one or more exit points. The goal is to guide a certain percentage of the little blue-shirted Lemmings, from the entrance to the exit, by clearing or creating a safe passage through the landscape. Each lemming will walk in one direction ignoring any other lemming in its way unless assigned to a special task (available in the bar at the bottom section of the screen) to help making a path to the desired destination. Those tasks mainly involve: Climbing, Blocking, Manufacturing, Punching, Digging, Mining and the most impressive: Blasting! Those skills are available based on the level design (not all of them are always available). Note that, the little green-haired Lemmings will die if they fall from too high, into water or lava, off the map, or get caught in a trap; they also die after being assigned to perform the blasting/bomber skill. The control system is great and entrusted to the mouse that proves, as always, perfect for this type of games. Just for the record, note that the video game console version supports only the gamepad which makes it frustrating enough but overall, Lemmings is an excellent puzzle game that will keep you interested for many hours!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics on the C64 are good (though the gameplay area is quite small) with cool animation and the levels design is pretty close to the 16bit original! Also, on the C64's version the sprites move considerably faster compared to the ZX and CPC counterparts. The nicely animated intro sequence we enjoyed on the Amiga is included! As for the sound, C64 Lemmings features the original intro and in-game tunes, along with a variety of funny sound effects.
