Atari ST User (Jul, 1991)
Your sleep will be haunted by the cries of our dead and the challenge of that screen you just couldn't manage to escape from. These Lemmings are endangered. But puzzling ability is not enough, nor are sheer reflexes or timing. You've got to think like you never have before, feel the level and live as a lemming. Then you might just have a chance.
But where Lemmings really scores is in its addictive playability: the initial levels are no real challenge, but they do warm you up nicely by introducing the elements gradually - and by the time you reach the trickier levels you'll be hooked.
ST Format (Jul, 1991)
Lemmings is damn near perfect. It has all the ingredients of a classic game: simple rules, massive playability, enjoyable graphics and that indefinable something that draws you back again and again. The only major drawbacks are the lack of sound and the potential illegibility of graphics, but neither of these makes the game unplayable. Get into the world of Lemmings and you'll never want to come out again.
ST Action (Mar, 1993)
Will a kind software house please make a puzzle game better than Lemmings because we're sick to death of the green haired gits!

Très fidèle à la version originale, la version Atari ST de Lemmings ne lui est inférieure que sur des détails. Toujours une très bonne pioche, donc.
Die Maussteuerung ist so brillant wie eh und je, dasselbe gilt für das unglaublich fesselnde Gameplay, die witzigen Soundeffekte und die abwechslungsreiche Musikbegleitung.
(page 87)
Überraschenderweise besitzt diese Fassung nur eine Diskette, welche zudem einseitig ist. Da‘s beim Amiga zwei waren ging ich doch recht skeptisch an den ST, doch zu Unrecht. Bis auf das Intro, welches ohne Musik abläuft, ist alles exakt genauso. Der Sound ist natürlich systembedingt schwächer, es handelt sich aber noch um dieselben Kompositionen. Levelaufbau, Anzahl der Level und der Spielablauf unterscheiden sich in nichts. Lemmings ist ein Spiel, das man haben muß.
Recreational computing may well be the last safe outpost wherein a company may claim to have an "addicting" product and not find themselves in danger of attack by a lynch mob. Not since Tetris has this reviewer been so addicted to, or completely fascinated with, a series of challenging puzzles. For those who enjoy fast-moving jousts of logic and creativity, follow the crowd and get Lemmings.
