Those brainless rodents are at it again! Lemmings for the Genesis puts you in control of these rodents to find their way home! You have the ability to give the Lemmings eight gifts ranging from climbing, digging and bombing. However, the Lemmings will mindlessly walk into various Lemming traps and even walk off cliffs! With 180 levels at your disposal, Lemmings will keep you busy for quite a while!
Keeping in mind that this is nothing more than a puzzle game, Lemmings is able to succeed. The version for the Genesis platform is really no worse or better in terms of game play, but the sound effects and especially the music don't compare. The basics of the play mechanics, however, are intact and executed perfectly.8
I loved the S-NES version and like the Genesis version even more. More levels, means more fun! On the Genesis this is the number one puzzle game in my book. Then throw in the two player version and this cart really starts looking good. Now, how long do I have to wait until Oh No, More Lemmings?7
While Lemmings is not the type of game I would normally choose to play, it does get addictive after a while. Sunsoft has included tons of levels to keep you going for days. The two-player mode is a lot of fun, too. Too bad the graphics and sound are not up to standard, though. I'm glad there is not much slow down.7
It's funny how no game seems to be striking me as an exceptional title to look forward to this month. Even the cute little Lemmings don't have that same appeal anymore. I like the graphics and game play, however. I wish the music had more variety and the sound effects were clearer. I love the Lemming traps... heh, heh!

The Humans "Just what the heck are HUMANS?... and what are they doing in a video game anyhow?" We know... we've heard it before, they're strange... they're ugly... they're stupid. But there's more to these HUMANS than meets the eye, for inside each and every one of them is a small but usable brain. Working as a team and discovering new tools is the key to survival in this cruel world of chaos and carnivores. It's an action-filled race against time, where you score points by finishing levels with as many of your tribesmen intact as HUMAN-ly possible (which isn't that easy when it comes down to survival of the fittest). With Gametek's Sega Genesis version of HUMANS, the only missing link is you!
