Atari ST A to Z: Lemmings

“Let’s go!” That’s a phrase you won’t be hearing in the Atari ST port of Lemmings, sadly, since the iconic digitised speech the series was so well known for in its early days was completely absent from this version.

Despite lacking one of its most well-known features, however, Lemmings for Atari ST remains just as enjoyable and interesting as it was back in the day, gradually building in intensity until it reaches absolutely brain-melting frustration.

You’ve never played a puzzle game quite like this… and there haven’t been many since, for that matter. Unless you count the million and one ports there have been over the years, of course…!

One thought on “Atari ST A to Z: Lemmings”

  1. I think you’re right about the original being the best distillation of the gameplay – it’s easy to pick up and the levels do well to make the most of your lemming’s abilities. The sequels threw a little too much into the mix but had a couple of improvements at least. If this game supported vertical scrolling in its maps (for bigger levels) and the fast forward of Lemmings 2 it’d be just about perfect. 🙂
