Going...going...gone! At least if you don't stop them, they will be. Those mindless blue- and green-haired rodents, the Lemmings, are off and running through 125 levels of potential mass suicide. It's your job to guide the little critters to safety, preventing them from plunging to their deaths in pits, cracks, and caverns.
The timer runs as you coral the Lemmings to a safe haven, so you should be quick about assigning them specific jobs in order to save some or all of them. There are Lemming climbers, floaters, bombers, blockers, builders, bashers, miners and diggers.
Depending on the type, these mindless, but resourceful rodents can scale steep cliffs, construct bridges, blow holes through obstacles and perform other life-saving tasks. Lemmings who are not currently involved in an assigned task include walkers, jumpers, flippers, wavers and athletes. Athletes can perform multiple skills!
A two-player, split-screen mode is available in which you guide your Lemming}s to the exit while trying to prevent your opponent from achieving the same goal. Other features include four skill levels, passwords for saving your progress and five bonus levels. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
