Lemmings Revolution - Windows (2000)

American Cover

Lemmings Revolution does a better job of utilizing polygonal graphics than Lemmings 3D, largely because it sticks closer to the original formula and is far less confusing. The "Revolution" of the title refers to the cylinder where all of the levels take place. At any given moment you only see about a third of the level, but by holding down the right mouse button, you can rotate the camera around the tower. This fundamentally changes the level layouts, because there's no enforced side edge to the playing field, so as long as there aren't any obstacles or walls, the lemmings can walk in circles all day.

Lemmings Revolution

The jobs are the same as the original Lemmings, though there are a few other additions and twists. There are two new types of lemmings - Water and Acid - which, respectively, can walk over each liquid obstacle without getting killed. In some levels there may be multiple types of lemmings, which fall from separate entry reports and require being escorted to separate exits. There are gravity pads, which trigger the lemmings to walk on the ceilings (or flip back to the floor, if gravity is already reversed) and there are a few types of switches and triggers used to open and shut doors, or drain and refill liquid pools. Certain areas also have enemy weasel characters, which knock lemmings off the playing field if they came into contact with them.

Lemmings Revolution

The levels are also structured differently. Rather than having different difficulties, the stage select is presented like a sideways pyramid. At the outset, on the left side, there are three playable stages - beating one will unlock the next two stages adjacent on the map. As you continue to the right, the puzzles get harder, though you can always double back to the easier stages if you're stumped. It works pretty well. There are 102 levels in total.

While the cylindrical presentation is unique, the designs and texture sets are just far too limited. As a result, many of the stages feel too samey, especially since so many of them go for the dark swamp theme. None of the levels feel distinct, and everything all sort of blends together even as the stages grow more complex. There are only a handful of music tracks too, and they aren't particularly good. So, like many of the Lemmings successors, it doesn't quite better the original game, although some of its ideas are at least better executed than most.

Lemmings - PlayStation 3 (2009)

Title Screem

Although the title "Lemmings" may suggest yet another port, the PlayStation 3 version is actually a totally separate game, though from a gameplay standpoint, it is the closest to the original title, rather than any sequel. Like the PSP version, it was developed by Team17, but the levels and visuals are all new. Again, it utilizes 2.5D graphics, complete with a zoom-in function, and generally looks pretty decent. The music is all new, though, without any of Follin's PSP tracks, and is generally forgettable.

Lemmings (PS3)

The biggest change from the formula is that you often don't start with all of the skills necessary to complete a stage, and instead need to pick up icons scattered about to activate them. This helps to make the game slightly easier, since it subtly gives hints about what skills you're supposed to use and where. There are a handful of new gimmicks, like teleporters. Some stages are largely cloaked in darkness, with the Lemmings carrying candles, which can then be used to light torches for more lasting illumination.

Since the game was designed as a low-budget download-only title - it was released at a mere $6 US - it's incredibly thin on content. Outside of the tutorial "Trial" stages, there are only 40 stages in total, and most of them seem to alternate between the goofy "science" and the dark "haunted" themes. The level editor from the PSP version is missing, and there's no multiplayer option either besides leaderboard comparisons. At its core it's a perfectly serviceable rendition of Lemmings, but feels incredibly barebones compared to every other version out there.

Lemmings Touch - PlayStation Vita (2014)

Title Screem

Developed exclusively for the Vita by D3T, Lemmings Touch, appropriately, redesigns the interface to revolve around the portable's touch screen. The selection bar at the bottom of the screen is gone; instead, whenever you tap a Lemming, a bubble pops up with all available skills. The levels also have assorted obstacles that can be manipulated - you can change the angle of trampolines, lift (and drop) certain types of blocks, or move platforms to ferry lemmings across the stage. This works well most of them, but trying to juggle these obstacles while also assigning skills proves troublesome. Additionally, the skill bubble has a tendency to get in the way of the action if you don't remember to tap somewhere else to close it. Some stages also have red colored Mischevious Lemmings. If just one of them makes it to the exit, you lose the entire level, so you actually need to either reroute them or intentionally kill them.

Lemmings Touch

The level structure has changed too. You need to play the difficulty levels in order, however, each difficulty is broken up into several hubs, each with five levels. You are awarded stars depending on how quickly you beat a level and how many lemmings you save. Getting enough stars will allow you to jump to the next hub, even if the other levels haven't been completed. This ensures that there are always many stages to try, while keeping them all at approximately the same difficulty level. There are also sub-goals that, when completed, will award coins. These can be used to purchase colors and items to customize the lemmings. This is completely optional.

The visuals are roughly similar to the PS3 game, though the stages and graphics are brand new. New stage themes include a candy land, Egypt, sci-fi, and crystal caverns. There's also a lot more levels, over 100 in total. So despite some clumsiness as a result of the touch screen, this is a fairly solid entry.
