Customised Lemmings

Batted back and forth via Amiga Power's letters section there was a long-running 'suggest a novelty Lemming' meme. In honour of that, erm, fructiferous challenge, allow me to introduce the Trump Lemming...

A level ends in failure because the stats 'insinuate' you've not rescued a sufficient number of suicidal critters. Up pops the Trump Lemming to demand a recount, blotting out our view of the options with a confrontational grimace. Nothing short of a 'success!' message can persuade him to quit screen-squatting.

Then there's the Boris Johnson Lemming...

Flustered and dishevelled, he trundles along the platforms attempting to talk himself into one designation or another.

"I'm a blocker, er, um, no, I'm a bridge-builder, er, build-back-better, erm, I'm actually a climber. Face, space, something about hands, happy birthday. No, I better ask the missus to make sure."

Obliviously, he then walks off a cliff edge mid-phone call, twiddling with his overgrown fringe in befuddled ambivalence while hell burns.

Your turn...

The Biden Theme:
the Lemmings in that level are constantly forgetting, what task they where given and/or fall suddenly asleep.
Instead of "Oh no!" they shout "C'mon man!".


The Angela "there is no alternative" Merkel Theme:
you can only ever choose of one single option at a given time ... makes the game extremely boring, but what else would you expect....

The Kim Yong Un Theme:
the Lemmings all have a fancy new hairstyle ... you can choose exactly one Lemming to be in Un-Mode: a little bit shorter but twice as wide... not walking but rolling.
The rest of the options: rockets... all kinds of rockets.

The Putin Theme
the landscape is a winter-theme, with elements of a chess-board, Tetris, some old Lenin-statues in the background ....
there are "friendly" and "hostile" Lemmings and you have to fight the hostile Lemmings with kalashnikovs, poison and judo...

Can you please keep the Lemmings non-political? It's a big no-no on the EAB (https://eab.abime.net/faq.php?faq=ea...faq_eab_banned).

It usually ends in arguments and the EAB is a place to escape from the real world for a while!

Thanks.

Ok, sorry for that!
(did not see it as partisan political but just as making fun of the ruling class per se...)

Incidentally, some of my Lemmings-in-the-style-of art appeared in issue 30 of Amiga Power (page 66):

LOL. I'd forgotten they'd stepped it up a gear. That's really thrown down the gauntlet... now where did I leave my brushes and easel?

Must remember to stick to non-partisan mickey-taking nonsense in future though, sorry.
