You and you alone are responsible for helping scores of friendly, innocent and harmless little Lemmings reach safety. You and you alone will be to blame if they end up drowning, burning, or exploding into Lemming bits. Think you can handle it? Eh?
The future of Lemmingdom is in YOUR hands. So get serious, furrow your brow, and don't laugh. The Lemmings need your help. The Lemmings will appear on each level of the game by falling through a trapdoor into a dangerous and hostile environment. You have to lead them out of the level by giving them the skills and powers which help them reach safety. Hopefully you'll rescue enough to advance to the next level.
