This week for Retro Game Friday I’m covering a really old game. It’s Lemmings!

Plot: There wasn’t one, not really.

Gameplay: The goal is to guide at least a certain percentage of the green-haired, blue-robed lemmings from the entrance to the exit by clearing or creating a safe passage through the landscape for the lemmings to use. It was pretty fun, but it was also really fun to find ways to not only clear the levels but also kill any extra lemmings in new and interesting ways.

Music: Don’t remember it, sorry it’s been way too long.

Art: I don’t remember it very well, but it was pretty pixelated.

Overall: Might be fun to go back and play a remake.

For those who like: Puzzle Games.

Not for those who don’t like: Puzzle Games.
