Die Master-System-Version ist zum Glück nicht mit der etwas verpatzten Game-Gear-Variante identisch. Neben der Steuerung ist auch die Musik weit besser gelungen, als auf Segas Handheld. Der Master-System-Sound läßt sogar das NES-Gedudel weit hinter sich. Auf dem Master System tummelt sich damit die bessere 8-Bit-Lemmings-Version.
Seeing how the Master System was starting to show its age, it’s remarkable how much of the game remained intact. With 120 levels, including a few unique to this version, there is a lot on hand for strategic puzzle­game fans. The sound is great and the graphics have suffered remarkably little for a downgrade from the 16-bit original. However, the noticeable slowdown, the lack of a map screen and the cumbersome pausing function on original hardware are detrimental to the overall fun. Once you get a hand on these issues though, you get to enjoy one of the best 8-bit renditions of this true classic. The premise may have aged a little, but that doesn’t make it any less of a brain­teaser, even though modern gamers may be used to a little more action in their games nowadays.
