Description (by Psygnosis)

Here come the Lemmings!

Lemmings are clueless little creatures with no real sense of direction, and its up to the player to give them a helping hand, negotiating the treacherous terrain between them and the safety of each level's exit. Game players of all ages will have hours of fun solving puzzles as they help their Lemmings build, bash, dig, mine, block , climb, float and explode their way to safety.
