Summary

I got tired of this one really fast.

The Good

It is an interesting game, original and practically reinvented puzzle solving. It was also Psygnosis' first real break out of the Amiga platform, which is noteworthy as the company evolved and is, as far as I know, still in existance.

The puzzles are varied and mostly interesting. The characters are cute and well drawn, the music is excellent and the sound effects are weird (which is a good thing). What could possibly be wrong with this game?

The Bad

Well, aside from a myriad of sequels (I can name at least 3), the game is simply tiresome. 120 puzzles? Is anyone in this universe truly insane enough to complete this game? I got tired of it before reaching 50!
If you intend on completing this game you had better be damn well armed with infinate patience. You'll need it.

Oh yes, and I really hate lemmings, now that I've played this game more than I could possibly take.

The Bottom Line

A cute and original puzzle game, but really tiresome.
