Controlling an army of lemmings, the aim is to get as many of these cute characters as you can from the entrance point to the exit point of a level within a time limit. Easy to learn, difficult to master; Lemmings is a test of strategy and fast thinking as you make 'on the spot' life or death decisions for your band of trusting little creatures. Use the unique skills of your Lemmings team to overcome the hazards ahead: the bomber explodes at will, the floater can survive high falls and the basher digs horizontally just when you need it. The climber is at hand for those tricky mountain ranges, the blocker creates an obstacle in the path ahead and the builder is there to construct walkways for his friends.
Stretch your strategies across 100 plus levels as you lead your lemmings across an immense variety of challenging backdrops. The levels are arranged into five striking themes, each with its own unique visual flavour. So, whether it's going underground into the sewers or marching through fields and forests, the lemmings always have new terrain to explore.
Packed with a host of new features, Lemmings offers for the first time a level editor allowing players to produce their own levels and save them to the memory card on the PSP. Using the inbuilt wireless technology on the PSP, players can upload these levels to an exclusive Lemmings online community. Share your unique levels with other users or download their new levels directly to your PSP -- the opportunities are endless.
Perfect for a gaming snack or a marathon meal, Lemmings on the PSP is engaging and addictive; be proud to follow the crowd with Lemmings.

If you've played Lemmings before, chances are it was on a pc way back when, and I'm willing to bet money that you've got fond memories of helping all the little green-haired guys get home. If that sums you up, then this is a must-have. Included on the disc is a total of 156 levels of lemmings goodness.
Much to my pleasant surprise, 120 of the maps are re-worked levels based precisely on the original lemmings levels. You'll instantly recognise the level layouts aswell as the names of the various difficulty levels. All told, it's an extremely nostalgic experience and one I'm thoroughly enjoying. The content is divided into 120 reworked original levels that are categorised into the original 4 levels of difficulty including Fun, Tricky, Taxing and Mayhem. In addition, you'll find 36 "Special" levels with no difficulty setting, with each level completed unlocking subsequent 'special'levels up to 36.
The original 136 levels are just as fun as I remember them being, with the added bonus now of digital sound quality and improved graphics. The soundtrack to all the levels, new ones included, is worth mentioning for its stellar quality and vast range. Team 17 appears to have completely re-done the music for this release from the ground up, and the result is both nostalgic (in terms of the older songs) and generally satisfying. The 36 "Special" levels are conceptually the same as any other lemmings stage but differ in the way they're expected to be solved. Whereas the original levels often included dozens of lemmings for rescuing, these new stages make a habit out of giving the player 1, 2 or 5 lemmings and expecting all of them to be saved. Makes for tough game play without the reward of sending zillions of Lemmings home.
