Still love lemmings after all these years? Why not create some new levels and share them with Amiga friends/community? For those who don’t know, Lemmings is a puzzle-platformer video game originally developed by DMA Design released in 1991. The objective of the game is to guide a group of anthropomorphised lemmings through a number of obstacles to a designated exit. o successfully complete the level, the player must assign specific skills to certain lemmings. Which skills and how many uses of each are available to the player varies from level to level, and the player must assign the skills carefully to successfully guide the lemmings. There are eight skills that can be assigned….


What you need

1. A Commodore Amiga or WinUAE configuration capable of running a Lemmings hard drive installation
