Lemmings is a puzzle-platformer video game developed by DMA Design) and published by Psygnosis in 1991. Originally developed for Commodore Amiga, Lemmings was one of the most popular video games of its time, and several gaming magazines gave it some of their highest review scores at the time. The popularity of the game led to development of its numerous ports to other systems, including most recently ports to the PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3 in 2006 and 2007, and the creation of several sequels. The behavior of the creatures in Lemmings is based on the supposed behavior of real lemmings, who by urban legend are believed to go on migrations en masse that eventually lead to disaster. The basic objective of the game is to guide lemmings through a number of obstacles to a designated exit.
