Pingus is a very well-done Lemmings clone, both in gameplay and graphics, which challenges you in the same way the original title did. Controls are very easy, especially if you already played Lemmings before. The downside to this is that you're forced to play the tutorial whether you like it or not, and it can be quite boring if you're familiar with the game's mechanics.
Ce jeu, bien qu'étant encore en développement est parfaitement fonctionnel et permet de passer plusieurs heures à se casser la tête : une merveille!

Pingus is a fun Lemmings game, that adds its own stamp. You, as their leader, must save a set number of Pingus to the safety of their penguin-shaped igloo, without letting them die (or you could just Nuke 'em, if you're feeling mean, tee hee). To guide them, you have to assign them skills, such as Floater, Basher, or Jumper. These skills are shown on the left side of the screen, and you are told how many Pingus to save for each level. The graphics are very cute and colourful, and the animation is nice and smooth. I love watching them perform their tasks.
