Lemmings

Post by cononthebarber » Mon Jun 13, 2011 10:18 pm

I was rummaging around in the attic today and stumbled across a copy of Lemmings...well thats not quite true as I don't have an attic, but oh well, you get the idea? Anyway I've spent pretty much the whole day playing it and now have had to stop before I go insane! Im stuck on a level called "there's a lot of them about" and I've tried it about 10 million times but keep failing! Argh!!!!!

Having said that...I forgot how ace a game it is :)

Lemmings is great! I can totally see how you spent the whole day playing it :thumbsup:
My first lemmings experience was a 4-game PC demo that I played over and over again, and eventually got the full game from 'Santa'. I loved it. I don't think I ever got any further than about halfway through 'Taxing'.
I got a voucher for £10 off Lemmings 2 from Virgin Megastore and bugged my mum to take me into town to go and get it for ages :lol:
And when we did, it was my new favourite game. For those who never played, which the original lemmings had 12 'skills', Lemmings 2 had 120! Not all on the same level of course! You could choose 12 at a time in the 'practice' mode though, which was great fun! On the main game I completed 10 of the 12 tribes. I liked that if you got stuck on one tribe you could just move onto the next one, so you weren't as stuck as getting on Lemmings 1.
Oh No More Lemmings, didn't have, but played occasionaly on my friend's Amiga. Played some Xmas Lemmings, I think it was a demo...
Next up was Lemmings 3D, which was different, but I loved that too. I originally played it on a 386 PC which had to be booted in 'turbo' mode for it to run at the normal speed :roflmao:
Lemmings Paintball was quite an interesting one, still puzzle based but you had to shoot other team(s?) with paintballs, quite fun. There was a network mode which I really wanted to get working but never did unfortunately.
Then, years later I got Lemmings Revolution, which was based on Lemmings puzzles around a cylindrical level, it was quite good but I never really got into it.

I want to play them all now! Wonder if I can complete them now... probably not, I had much better patience/gaming endurance when I was younger!

^ I probably spent more time watching Lemmings that I did playing it. I always liked it, just not that much.

Good stuff 8-)

I haven't quite managed to convince myself to play it yet, but it might still happen :P

:dance:
I'm refraining from looking at the end screen because I'm nearing the end myself now :thumbsup: (and I've waited so long!)
Finally cracked level 7 yesterday and got to level 11, got a bit stuck on that then had some productive train journeys today and am on level 19 now!
