North American Amiga box art.

Lemmings is an action puzzle game developed by DMA Design Limited and published by Psygnosis Limited for the Amiga in 1991, and later ported to dozens of other platforms.

I got a copy of Lemmings for DOS around 1993 because it came bundled with a piece of hardware. I think it was my Sound Blaster 2, but I'm not positive. I played through all 30 Fun levels and started on the Tricky levels, but got bored with it. I really enjoyed the DOS music for the game. I'm not sure where the disk went, but I do remember the game had a verification mechanism where it required the original disk to be in drive to play, and copies of the disk wouldn't work.


I do not own the game and I have not beaten the game.


  • Overall: 5/10
  • Best Version: Not sure.


  • The background graphics look amazing, and the lemming animations are great.
  • Despite most of the music being arrangements of children's songs, they're pretty good, and the original music is great.
  • The point-and-click interface is great.
  • Some later stages use the same map, but give you a limited set of lemmings to work with, which forces you to have to solve the same puzzle in a more convoluted manner, which I think is a great idea.


  • The instruments used in the Amiga version are really obnoxious.


  • In the final levels, the game becomes less about solving a puzzle and more about having to click on the exact pixel at the exact second. This isn't fun, it's tedious.
