The early 90’s had a lot of simple games with very basic objectives. Perhaps the most common objective was “get to end without being destroyed.” This objective has become a way of gaming life in a lot of respects, but one question still remains that a lot of old-school PC gamers had the joy of answering…can you save a group of non-stop walking creatures before they plummet off a cliff? That’s where Lemmings comes in.

Lemmings is a game I had the pleasure of playing with my dad a lot when I was younger. We would spend hours in front of his computer trying to figure out how to get all of our Lemmings to safety before they went off the ledge, got burned alive by lava, and various other devious traps and tricks that got in our way. I had a feeling it was time to bring my love of this classic puzzle game to light this year, so here we are with another special weekend project for me.

I am also covering the SNES version of the game, which has a slightly different-looking interface than other versions, and some other modifications made specifically for the SNES version.

Who would have thought that Capcom, the minds behind Street Fighter and Mega Man, would actually enter the realm of Disney in their video games? Well, truth be told, back in the day, this was Capcom’s bread and butter, making tons of video games based on popular Disney movies and characters. In this game, Pluto has been kidnapped by mighty Emperor Pete and it’s up to Mickey to save his pal, entering a world of danger, magic, and lots of other perilous things.

This was a game that I played very briefly in my youth, being able to rent it from the video store downtown. It was a game that I remembered very well though, so much that I wanted to play it for you guys. It’s been a long time since I have touched this game, but I was more than looking forward to it.
