Never has a game been so aptly titled. Barely has the world settled down and stopped wibbling over the software phenomenon that was Lemmings, than Psygnosis release a further 100 levels. New traps, new layouts, new strategies. And again, the world puts on a blue jumpsuit and goes "Wibble".
Well, to get this out of the way, this is not Lemmings 2. Not in any way, shape or form. No no Nanette. It's merely another 100 levels for the original. There's no new lemming skills, no new sprites or anything like that. It's only to keep you knee-deep in Lems until the proper Lemmings 2 and the Lemmings Construction Kit are ready. They just won't let it lie, will they?
Now I'm sorry about this next bit but there's always the faint chance that there's someone out there who doesn't know what all this Lemmings palaver is about. So I'm going to have to explain it all agan aren't I? OK, you have to make sure that a certain number of lemmings make it from one end of the level to the other without falling foul of traps, pits and their own crass stupidity. You see, lemmings have slightly less intelligence than a small pile of mung beans. They're utter twonks. You, the gorgeous gamesplayer, can help them overcome this natural intellectual bypass by endowing individual lems with special powers. These powers allow them to dig, climb, build bridges, block, float and explode. You will, however, only have a set number of powers that you can bestow per level. For instance, the way forward might seem obvious if you had some bridge builders, but the chances are you won't and you'll have to think your way around the problem. I know all of this is almost written in computer folklore, but some people seem to have spent the last few years hiding behind the sofa when it comes to games.
So, these new levels, what are they like? Well, they're good. Fairly obvious that but they really are good. It's a bit like finding out that they've just made a whole new series of The A Team. More of the same, but just what you were waiting for anyway. We were a bit stuck to begin with, as we were having trouble getting past the Tame levels (it's not 'Fun' any more, it's 'Tame'), but then out of the blue came a letter from Robert Phelps in Stroud. Good old Bob had sent us all 100 level codes. Staggering, or what? The flamin' thing hadn't been on sale five minutes and he'd done the lot! A right smarty boots and no mistake! So, thanks to Robert we were able to have a good look at any level we wanted. And they're all cracking.
The Tame levels are, as you can guess, fairly tame. Yes, I had trouble with them but then I never was any good at the original. These levels can be breezed through by your average Lemmings supremo, and so they're best for people who've bought the standalone version and don't know what they're doing yet.
After that, things get harder and some of the levels are destined to go down in history as complete bar stewards of our time. The Superlemming level, for instance, looks really easy but the timing needed is phenomenal. Scary stuff. And the others pose similar seemingly impossible tasks that kept us from the pub for many lunchtimes. If you're a Lemmings fan then this is just the thing to keep you awake until God knows when. A worthwhile addition.
Lemmings is a dudey little game that was made sometime in the 90's, and was a MEGA hit... It is somehow a really GREAT game... even if it is based on lemmings.
The idea is simple really, you have loads of lemmings falling out of a trap door in the sky, and you have to get them safely to the exit... SIMPLE! I hear you shout... far from it! Some of the levels in this add on pack are just so impossible! Well, there must be someway to do it, but you need to have reflexes the speed of a flying electron...
But even so, it is a really great feeling when you work out how to do the particular level. Each level has got a certain amount of each profession that you can place on each lemming. There are 9 in total I think, including - Builder, Digger, Diagonal digger, Basher, Blocker, Blow Upper, Umbrella, and a few others... Using these options, you must make your way across the levels. Usually just one lemming will need to pave the way for the rest, and sometimes you may even need 5 lemmings working on something at the same time, which proves VERY taxing!
If you have played lemmings, then you should play this too! It really is great!
In all likelihood, every computer gamer understands the premise behind the Psygnosis release Lemmings. Like classic educational gaming such as Oregon Trail, many schools put Lemmings on their computers in order to teach children the basics of logic, strategy and puzzle solving. It is a great game for kids to practice working together, often with one child run the controls and others shouting brilliant ideas at him. Oh No! More Lemmings is added on or expansion packs to the original Lemmings game. It came out some time after the original, and was developed by DMA Design Limited. Like the mother game, it was created for many different formats.
Oh No! More Lemmings offers a few new twists to the age-old classic. First of all, with this "data disk," the user now has a choice of five different difficulty settings to play, ranging from "tame" to "havoc," each with twenty new levels. Each of these levels is completely unique. In other words, the user will not have to complete the same level in various difficulty settings, just with less time. All levels in each setting are fresh and new. It does use the same Lemmings engine, but the graphics are new and great to view. There are about a half dozen new soundtracks playing in the background that will work their way into the user's ears, and it contains ten new two-player levels. Overall, there are one hundred new levels for the user to try to navigate his little lemmings buddies through, this being main point of the data disk. This is an expansion, not a sequel. The sequel is titled Lemmings 2: The Tribes and can also be found here. To run Oh No! More Lemmings, the user is going to have to have installation information from the original game, or the manual to answer copyright protection questions.
The game play is pretty much the same as the original Lemmings game. There are a few levels with some new twists, such as a highly sped up clock that drives the user insane. All the levels play from the third person perspective, and feature various goals as far as how many lemmings have to successfully escape the level and what types of tools are available for the little guys to use.
This game is addictive and interesting. So if you want have fun you need downloading it immediately.
Again? A new lemming episode? Wasn't that enough? No! Lemmings rule :) New levels, new music tracks, fine graphics. Go, save your lemmings!
