'Lemmings' (PSP) Gets Release Date

by Rainier on March 21, 2006 @ 4:13 a.m. PST

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.

First introduced to the world in 1991, Lemmings is considered to be one of the most platform-ported games of all time. In Lemmings, players guide masses of hapless little green-haired creatures through various maze-like levels that have an entrance point and an exit point. Quick thinking and skillful management of the Lemmings group is critical because danger lurks at every step of their relentless march. Players will need to control the Lemmings to avoid doom and disaster, including the threat of raging rivers, steep cliffs, pits of lava, mechanical spikes, and flame-throwing turrets that threaten the Lemmings' safety. Lemmings features more than 150 levels, including more than 20 all-new puzzles created specifically for the PSP. In addition, the game will host a new mix of music, custom level creation, and wireless capability to share newly created levels.

"Lemmings delivers a very unique and addictive style of puzzle gameplay that players of all ages can enjoy," said Susan Nourai, director, online and product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "As the franchise turns 15 this year, we are happy to see the enduring appeal it has for fans around the world and are thrilled that today's generation will be able to experience the excitement of Lemmings on PSP."

Lemmings presents a wide variety of challenges where players will have a chance to utilize creative solutions to guide each mindless creature to safety. The game offers many variations to complete a level; in certain cases players must sacrifice some Lemmings for the greater good, in other situations all Lemmings will need to be saved. To add an additional challenge, players will need to race against a rapidly depleting clock. Each puzzle varies in complexity and all require a certain strategic element to solve each one. Enhancing the classic gameplay found in previous versions of the game, Lemmings for PSP brings all-new brilliantly detailed graphics to provide a fresh look to the franchise. Players will also be treated to a new mix of music to complement the vibrant visuals and challenging gameplay. Exclusively for the PSP, an extensive level editor is available to allow players to create their own customized game levels. Additionally, players will be able to share their custom-created levels with others via Infrastructure mode and the wireless gamesharing feature will provide players the opportunity to transmit samples of custom-created levels to others via Ad-Hoc mode.
