Amiga Power
Utterly bizarre, pleasingly original and totally addictive. Invents a totally new category - the save 'em up. As is the norm with such strikingly original concepts, some may wonder what all the fuss is about. Love it or loathe it, you can't ignore it. Lemmings rule.

Amiga Computing
Lemmings is absolutely brilliant, Psygnosis have manage to product a game that is not only totally original, but also features the kind of addictive gameplay that will keep you coming back for more time and time again.

The One
There's only one problem with Lemmings - it's too addictive by half. Don't play it if you have better things to do. You won't ever get round to doing them.

Zzap!
Lemmings is the epitome of the thoughtful, imaginative programs that people so often claim 'aren't made anymore'. Surprisingly enough Psygnosis, the masters of graphical glitz, have proven the falseness of that argument by resisting the temptation to slip in even a single layer of parallax scroll, instead focusing on the brilliantly original gameplay. As with Loderunner and Boulderdash it's different enough to keep you hooked for ages, yet also instantly and compulsively playable. The tiny lemming sprites have bags of character, with some superb animation, and it's great fun trying to save them – or simply leading them into dramatic catastrophe! The explosive 'apocalypse' option is always worth watching. This violent element, combined with the lemming's irresistible cuteness, should ensure the thoughtful and varied action achieves the commercial success it richly deserves.

Computer and Video Games (CVG)
The graphics are simply superb with a huge variety in the backdrops and superb animation on the Lemming sprites - watch them gibber with fear just before you nuke the little blighters out of existence! The sound is excellent as well, with sampled speech and 25 different cutesy tunes. Some of the puzzles in the game are so frustrating that you're tempted to give up at times, but the game's strong addictive nature will have you back at the Amiga before you know it. For sheer addictiveness, Lemmings ranks as one of the best, and one of the most original games I've played on the Amiga for a very long time.

Power Play
Spiele mit Eigendynamik sind die momentanen Schätzchen in der Software-Landschaft. Bei "Populous" und "Powermonger" wuseln nette kleine Männchen als Untertanen des Spielers über den Bildschirm; bei "Sim City" sorgt die simulierte Bevölkerung für Aufstieg und Niedergang einer Stadt. Der neueste, aberwitzigste und drolligste Sproß der Kettenreaktions-Tüftelspiele stammt aus Liverpool: Psygnosis veröffentlicht in diesen Tagen "Lemmings", das neue Programm von Dave Jones und seinem Team DMA-Design, das mit "Blood Money" bekannt wurde. Nach jenem harten Ballerspiel hat sich der gute Dave dem Denk- und Strategie-Genre zugewandt. Doch - dem Zeitdruck sei Dank - auch bei Lemmings geht es herzhaft hektisch zu.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Lemmings is a fine game. Although its appeal will inevitably wain once all the levels have been completed, the precision and control faciliated over each lemming is enough to make it worth playing anyway.

Amiga Action
When we reviewed Chip's Challenge last issue we thought that it would be a long time before anything would top it. But Lemmings has accomplished that task. It is absolutely amazing while being very original. It reminds me of the sort of addictive games that we used to play on the C64. The sound is good and adds a lot of humour, while the graphics, although not top quality, work very well and are more than adequate. Whatever type of game you enjoy you'll enjoy Lemmings. Totally amazing.

Amiga Joker
Die Landschaft scrollt horizontal und ist einige Bildschirme breit, auf einer Art Radarschirm ist die Gegend in Umrissen zu erkennen. Die Grafik ist denn auch der einzige Schwachpunkt des Spiels: Zwar wurden die Viecher selbst recht putzig animiert, dafür sind die Landschaften eher trist. Gesteuert wird übrigens ausschließlich mit der Maus (zumindest bei der Vorabversion, die für unseren Test zur Verfügung stand). Alles in allem hat Lemmings in der Redaktion wahre Begeisterungsstürme entfacht – ein actiongeladenes Strategiespiel mit einer superoriginellen Idee, das jeden sofort in seinen Bahn zieht!
