Yes, the game features a suicidal mob of cute creatures is already 25 years old! Lemmings was first published by Psygnosis for the Amiga, Atari ST and PC in 1991. It was also ported for more than 20 different platforms, including NES, C64, Amstrad and Playstation.
On this puzzle game, you control the lemmings trying to guide then to the level exit. Each one of them has a set of skills that can be used to go through obstacles, dig holes or even go down safely from high falls.
If you want to learn more about the game and its history, Pedro Loureiro has published a new video of his series called “It’s a Pixel THING!”. Be aware the video shows a lot of lemmings dying a horrible death. Viewer’s discretion is advised!

Interestingly enough, I’ve been playing the game on a new version released for the PS Vita, which is also available on many other platforms. Same gameplay, same cute creatures, same fun!
