Description of Lemmings

Lemmings, one the most famous game in the nineties. You are in charge of a group of lemmings on their way to their home.

Inspired from the legend of the dumb lemming running straight in to danger, the lemmings pop from a portal and walk straight until they find an obstacle. The goal is to build a way to the exit with minimum casualties along the way. Of course dangers are everywhere : pitfall, traps, cliffs, etc...

Hopefully, the lemmings are able to make a lot of things, but you have to tell them to do it. Lemmings can make their fellow friends stop and turn around, build bridges, use an umbrella to fall slowly and much more. With a clever use of the often limited number of abilities, you may lead the lemmings to the exit.

The game was very popular and offered a two player mode, where you could collaborate to end the level or be evil and doom the other player's lemming to their death. The whole series was released on many platform and new games were made recently for the playstation.

Lemmings has an addon available: Oh No! More Lemmings, don't miss it!

This is the CD-ROM version of Lemmings.

Even under DOSBox, it'll exit with an error about being unable to find MSCDEX unless you mount a CD image.

...and, if you do mount a CD image, you'll be playing Lemmings while listening to the Redbook audio from whatever game you mounted... which really spoils the experience.

*sigh* Back to my search for the version I had before my floppies went bad.

I'll disagree with it being the "Angry Birds" of the 90's. Sure, it did have the same carefree and silly charm that AB has, but it was by no means a "stupid game" in the sense of throwaway casual gaming. In AB, there is some application of proficiency, but its "Easy To Learn, Hard To Master" parameters and quick gameplay on the medium allows people to jump in and out of a game with little thought.

In Lemmings, you have to know exactly what you're doing, and even one minor oversight can cause you to restart the level again.

The SNES version manual had "Warning can be highly addictive" on the back or inside cover. Well, it's a good thing they put that disclaimer on because it sure was. Never one of my "favorite" games, but I couldn't count the number of hours that snuck by while I played this stupid game. (I use the term "stupid" in the most affectionate way possible.)

Ah, Lemmings. The "Angry Birds" of the 1990s. Some call them "stupid games" because they are casual games and don't really accomplish much. But both have the same humour and charm as each other. I've introduced AB fans to Lemmings and they get the same amusement out of it.

Can you actually believe that the developer of this game, DMA Design, changed name into Rockstar North , launched GTA and now makes BILLIONS OF DOLLARS with GTA 5? No wonder they abandoned this game, altough it spawned a great deal of games. Just do a google search for "Dibbles" , its a series of games, just like this one, only they are free to play as flash games , with better graphics and some new ideas, but still sticking to this original gaming style.

If you have any problems with Win7 or Win8 try looking at running in a virtual machine or DOSBox as suggested earlier.

Would it work on an Amazon Kindle Fire??

Anyone know how to enter codes for levels we have passed? My F-commands aren't working, I may just not know how to enter them.
