Graphics: The graphics are horrible for this game. The Lemmings don't
look like anything at all, the ground looks unreal, and so on. They should
have at least worked on the graphics when they ported this game from
the computer to the SNES. There is a dirty dark theme to the game
since it is underground.
Sound: Sound is just as bad. There's barely any music and the music
that is there is best defined as poor. The sound effects are also bad,
but not quite as bad.
Gameplay: A nice little puzzle game where you control a bunch of lemmings
and must reach a castle. This game has been remade so many times now,
but the original was always the best. You can make the lemmings stop
other lemmings, dig, float, and a bunch of other things, but you have to
get a certain amount of them to a castle somewhere on the level. Not really
a bad game, but there is no replay value and the puzzles become a bore after a bit.
Hardness factor: This game isn't for the uncreative. It gets really hard
at the last few levels, and it will probably frustrate you. Still, if you're
looking for a challenge, this is the game for you.
Overall: 4 out of 10. The game has interesting gameplay, but the graphics
and sound are, frankly, just bad. It's also such an old game that I wouldn't
recommend it to the gamers of today.
