Lemmings 2 - The Tribes
A sequel to one of the biggest puzzlers ever, Lemmings 2 includes 12 tribes of mindless lemmings and 120 levels of mind-bending play. If you liked the original game, you'll like this sequel.
Follow the Leader
The gameplay will be familiar to fans of the original: You must lead a certain percentage of the mindless rodents to safety through a maze of dangerous obstacles. In this version, each tribe of lemmings has different skills, and you have to figure out how to use them to navigate safely.
- Pouring glue enables the lemmings to easily make bridges.
- The Practice mode is a worthwhile place to spend some time and become acquainted with the abilities of each tribe.
As in the original game, the controls utilize an easy point- and-dick interface. Although the controls are straightforward, the graphics sometimes impair your ability to precisely control the lemmings.
There's a nice variety and much creativity in the level layouts and the moves the lemmings perform. The rodents themselves, however, are so tiny that it's tough to point and click with precision.
Lemming Entertain You
A rockin' soundtrack is entertaining enough, though it's easy to do without. The lemmings are as charming as ever, and their famous exclamations add to the game's personality.
Lemmings can't fall too far. One of the easiest ways to accidentally do yourself in is creating a situation where they splatter. Plan ahead.
The increasing difficulty makes the later puzzles extremely challenging, so there's enough variety for all levels of gamers. If you like this style of play, by all means follow Lemmings 2 to your nearest Genesis.
