a game by Sega
Time for more lemming-aid. Lemmings have always had a reputation for playing follow the leader to a fault. Send one of these furry little rodents off a cliff and the rest will follow. Lemmings has been a hit on every system, including the Genesis. Expect this one to follow that lead.
The object is to take your herd of Lemmings through each stage (in one door and out another) using only the characteristics you assign from the available list. Possible tools include: three types of digger (across, diagonal, down), bridge builders, climbers, floaters (have umbrella, will travel), blockers, suicide bombers and lastly, the ability to nuke the whole level when all seems lost. This is the equivalent of Lemming Meringue Pie!
You'll find territory ripe for the extinction of whole colonies of the little blue buggers. There are cliffs, water for drowning, spinning blades, barricades, and even oneway walls where you must get your digger to the other side for passage cutting. Each level has a different set of tools available. Some crucial tasks can only be assigned once.
You might for instance, get only one blocker, one digger and one climber on a particular level and have to puzzle out the optimum use of these tools. The are four stages (fun, tricky, taxing, and mayhem), of 30 levels each, with a password continue. The best way to describe this tide is as a logic puzzle. This game will stress your solving abilities to the max.
