Lemmings, our favorite green haired rodent critters, are back. Here is the Super Famicom version of one of the most popular video game franchise ever made. The goal of the game is simple. The lemmings, cute but not so bright little rodents, are on a mass migration. The player must guide them through endless levels, get them to walk around hazards, build tiny bridges or sacrifice themselves for the good of the lemming's society. Each stage starts in a similar way - a given number of Lemmings continuously fall from a sort of large trapdoor. Then the player can pick a lemming and give him an order such as digging, block the way or explode. This last feature is certainly the most 'talked about' among gamers. Watching a lemming shaking his head in despair and pop, leaving a hole in the ground is always a priceless moment. A limited amount of commands are available for every level and the player has to figure out how to get all (or most) of the lemmings to the stage's exit within a time limit. A given percentage of lemmings must be saved and failing to do so gets the player to start the level again. The game also offers a multi player split-screen challenge mode. There, two players have to get all of his/her lemmings through the exit door before the other opponent does. And nothing prevents them to sabotage each other's efforts. Finally, the game uses a simple password system to save the player's progress.

Lemmings first came out for the Amiga in 1991. It was developed by the British game company DMA design and published by Psygnosis. The game was a major breakthrough for the company. Lemmings was ported for most of the video game systems of the time and countless sequels followed. It can be considered as one of the most widely converted video game with other titles such as Tetris.

This Super Famicom version of Lemming is really nice and offers plenty of challenge. Unlike other conversions, it looks like up to 100 lemmings can be set free at the same time but the game badly slowdowns when too many of them are present on the screen at the same time. Music has never been Lemming's strongest point (I think), all music tracks are directly borrowed from popular (and probably copyright free) songs which do not really give the game justice. Finally, I also wished the game was compatible with the Super Famicom mouse, guiding the cursor with precision with the D-Pad can sometimes be a challenge.
