a game by Sega
WARNING: In this game you will see thousands of incredibly mindless, purple - haired rodents march off cliffs into pits of fire, bottomless lakes and flaming gates...unless you provide Lemming aid! The Lemmings in the game are migrating through a giant maze and they need your help to make it through. Although you can't act on the Lemmings directly, you can assign them special attributes, which affect the way they behave.
Lemmings by Sunsoft is big, big fun. 180 levels full of obstacles that will test even the most warped puzzle gamer's mind. Fuzzy, mindless rodents. Awesome colors, graphics and sound. And a password feature that lets you access any previously achieved levels. There's even a twenty - level, two player mode that really adds to the fun! This is a game you won't want to miss.
The object of Lemmings is to get the varmints from the start to the exit of each maze level. Each level is timed and in each you must rescue a cer¬tain percentage of the Lemmings to continue. The game has several levels of difficulty, from easy to extremely frustrating. The two player mode is almost a combat to save the Lemmings. The object here is to block the other player's exit, getting the Lemmings safely through your exit.
Lemmings start out in life with but a single attribute: they just keep moving in one direction until they meet an obstacle, at which point they turn around and go back the other way. If you want them to do anything: else, you have to assign them special attributes, which modify their behavior. You can turn Lemmings into Climbers, who scale vertical heights, Miners, who dig at an angle, or Bombers, who count to five, cover their head and explode! Not all attributes are available in every level, so you must plan carefully to get the critters to the exit.
You pick attributes from the set of icons at the bottom of the screen. Selecting the set of Lemming tracks (Paws, get it?) stops the game so you can view the maze and decide on your strategy. The Lemmings begin by walking to the right. They'll keep going until they reach an obstacle. Then they walk left. If they encounter a cliff, they walk over. The easiest way to stop Lemmings from going somewhere is with a Blocker. Like a traffic cop, Blockers act as barriers the other Lemmings can't get around. Once selected, Blockers never move.
To get your Lemmings across a gap, you can turn some of them into Builders. Builders construct bridges across gaps in an upward direction. Bashers dig into whatever is directly in front of them when selected. They are great for making tunnels. You can tunnel under traps by making a miner, then turning it into a basher. Combinations like this are often the best way to get through a complicated level. Some call for split second timing. A hole in the wrong spot could let all your Lemmings fall to their doom.
Whether you're a new gamer or a seasoned pro, Lemmings will get into your blood.
