GamePro (US)
This version retains lengthy challenge from the other versions. If you're looking for some Game Boy puzzle fun, pick Lemmings up and them on.
Nintendo Magazine System UK
Considering the limitations of hand-held machines, this is a cracking conversion of the classic – provided Lemmings is your thing!

Lemmings er et spil, der ikke er belastet af vold og død, som de fleste andre spil...lige med undtagelse af de stakkels Bomber-Kamikaze-Lemminger. Her kommer du ikke langt med hurtige fingre alene, du skal også bruge hjernen. Lemmings er et af vores favoritspil til Super NES og Game Boy-versionen er næsten lige så god. Naturligvis kan man ikke sammenligne grafikken og lyden, men udfordringen og spilkontrollen er af samme høje standard. At man desuden kan have spillet med sig alle vegne, gør det til et must for alle lemming-freaks.
Power Play
Auf dem Game Boy ist die Umsetzung gelungen. Die Grafik ist kontrastreich und bietet Überblick. Steuerung und Sound wurden ebenfalls nett umgesetzt. Zum Glück dürfen wir nun auch im Pause-Modus unsere Icons anklicken, was besonders in höheren Levels weiterhilft. Zwei kleine Mankos sind dabei zu verschmerzen: Zum einen bewegen sich die Lemmings sehr langsam, zum anderen läßt sich nicht mehr regulieren, wie schnell die Wichte aus dem Portal fallen.
Game Players
It's been on every system from PC to NES, now it's the Game Boy's turn to get this strategy game. If 100+ levels of puzzles sound like your idea of fun, take a walk on the wild side!
