Game fans of a certain age will surely remember Lemmings, which was one of the hottest games of the 1990s. Amazingly, someone actually managed to recreate a clone of the game as a Web-based application that you can play in your browser. It works just like the original, and is just as fun and addictive as you'll remember it.
To see for yourself, head to http://www.elizium.nu/scripts/lemmings/.
If you've never played before, the rules are simple. Your aim is to get as many lemmings to their home (the gateway with the flaming torches) as you can. The number that you need to get home depends on which level you're playing.
Under the main playing area are icons depicting various skills that you can assign to a lemming. These include climber, digger, parachutist, and so on. To assign a skill to a lemming, click on the skill to select it and then click on a lemming. Each skill has a counter, so there's a limit to how many lemmings you can assign each skill to. As you can see in the screen shot below, you only have one skill available to you in this level (the digger), and you can assign it to a maximum of 10 lemmings. Actually, just one will do. Once he's dug a hole, all the rest of the lemmings will gently fall through it and find their way home. See, now I've got you interested already....!
