Lemmings Revolution continues Psygnosis' classic puzzle series in which players frantically try to rescue rodent-like creatures before they plummet to their doom. Instead of the 2D levels found in previous versions, Lemmings Revolution introduces spherical 3D landscapes with levels set in trees, stone towers, and sweltering fire pits. One hundred puzzles are available to complete, and each environment can be rotated to the left or right to spot potential hazards before it's too late.
Because the rodents are in constant motion, you only have so much time to figure out what you need to do to complete the level. Each lemming is proficient at a specific role, such as climbing or blocking, which must be used effectively to save the rest of the group from certain death. Miners dig through floors, for example, while bashers smash through rocks. Floaters are equipped with parachutes so they can safely fall off ledges.
Certain lemmings have developed an aquatic swimming skill while others are immune to specific traps. Hazards include acid, lava, and water pits. There are also pressure-sensitive doors that will automatically close after a time limit. If you've got lemmings on the other side of the door, they'll be permanently separated from the group. Helpful items found within each level include switches, teleportation devices, anti-gravity pads, and speed pads. The difficulty setting can be adjusted from "easy" up to "very hard" to accommodate players of all ages and abilities. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
