Tough, challenging and full of things with green hair going bang! This game's going to cause a lot of late nights for a lot of people.

A stable conversion of a classic game. Spoilt by a few defects but worth a look for die-hard Lemmings fans anyway.

If you're a big Lemmings fan or simply inquisitive, have a bash at the NES version. Definitely a game to try before you buy!

It’s fair to say that the NES version of Lemmings does not offer the definitive experience. The lack of sound effects deals a real blow to the game’s charm, which it otherwise has in spades. Yet the core of what makes the franchise so compelling is firmly in place here in the form of original, entertaining, and challenging puzzles that, due to the downright cuteness of the titular creatures, really feel like they matter.
