The sequel to the brilliant Lemmings is even better than the first one, with clearer graphics and more interesting levels and gameplay.
The basis of the game is the same as Lemmings: lead your little animated fellers to the exit by using various skills to get them there. Digging, floating, blocking, jumping – there are 51 different skills in total but you can only use eight at a time. Unless you’re playing in Practice Mode which allows you to experiment with all the different skills at the same time.
Technically, Lemmings 2 looks and feels more accomplished than the original Lemmings #1. The graphics are on the money in this sequel. The levels look great and are as devious/clever as hell (all 120 of them). The mouse controls feel really nice. Leading your guys to the exit has never been so much fun…
Lemmings 2: The Tribes was developed by DMA Design and published by Psygnosis in 1993.
