Amiga Action
The big question remains: Is Troddlers better than Lemmings? From a personal point of view I prefer Lemmings, but that doesn't mean to say that Troddlers isn't a fine game, 'cos it is. The graphics are beautiful, the difficulty curve perfect and it's full of delightful little touches. Addictive from the word go and very, very challenging in the long term. Buy it sooner rather than later.
Amiga Power
Derivative, yeah, but derivative of two of the most original and innovative games in the computing history. The two styles combine to create a classic game in its own right. The truth be told, it's actually better than Lemmings. (Damn, said it.)
CU Amiga
Hokus and Pokus are a couple of mischievous fellows. Working for a very lazy, but highly intolerant wizard. They do nothing but skive and get up to all kinds of mischief. One day, the wizard decides he has had enough and sends them down to the cellar to tidy up – a job that should take them a couple of days. While down there, they come across a box marked 'dangerous'. It transpires that the box contains Troddlers, small creatures dedicated to helping people do their job.
Amiga Format
Troddlers is nice-looking. The graphics don't have as much character as Lemmings, but they perform their function well. The music is nice and suitably jolly, but the best thing about this game is that it is fun to play and addictive. Only occasionally will you really swear at a level that can't be completed. All in all, a fun game that isn't as good as Lemmings but has a damn good try, and is all the better for it.

Sicherlich haben sich die Programmierer etwas von “Lemmings“ inspirieren lassen, man kann dennoch von einer eigenen Konzeption sprechen. Insgesamt kann man “Troddlers“ nur als durchweg gelungenes Denkspiel bezeichnen.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Die witzige Musik und ein paar FX tragen zum ansonsten positiven Eindruck bei. Gäbe es die Lemmings nicht, wäre dieses Spiel ein Hit geworden. So aber reicht es immerhin, um einige fröhliche Stunden, Nächte und Wochen gut zu unterhalten.
Power Play
Die Steuerung entpuppt sich als korrekt und recht einfallsreich. Auch grafisch geben sich die Troddlers von der soliden Seite, musikalisch geht’s da schon etwas schlichter zu. Die nicht sehr zahlreichen Musikstücke nerven nach einiger Zeit mächtig. Alle Lemmings- und Niedlichkeits-Fanatiker sollten sich Troddlers trotzdem zulegen. Kurzweilige Unterhaltung inklusive nettem Zweispielermodus ist garantiert.
Amiga Joker
Grafik und Sound sind standesgemäß "nett", die Steuerung per Stick oder Keyboard bietet ebenfalls keinen Anlaß zur Kritik. Und vom Gameplay her sind die Troddlers natürlich ideal dazu geeignet, um sich das warten auf "Lemmings II" zu versüßen...
