Lemmings in my opinion has not been surpassed since the Amiga original. Mega lo Mania, Cannon Fodder and SWOS are also exemplary.

Being an A500+ owner back at launch in 1991, it was a surprise to have it inside the Cartoon Classics pack but a bit of a pain too. With the older games, it was a minefield sometimes whether they...

Darkseed, Dreamweb would be of similar ilk. All great titles, that my 3 year old might enjoy. I wonder how she would perceive them if I did fire them up?

I love Lemmings, had it first on the Spectrum before we bought the Amiga Cartoon Classics pack. The jump from 8 bit to 16 bit was incredible and such a great game, even on the spectrum.
