First published in 1991 on the Commodore Amiga, Lemmings was an instant hit with puzzle fans and went on to massive mainstream success with numerous sequels. The game puts the player in control of a herd of up to 100 lemmings that bear no physical resemblance to the real-life rodents but do have the same wanton disregard for their lives. It’s your job to get these critters from start to finish by equipping certain members of the pack with skills such as digging, bridge-building, and blocking to avoid the obstacles placed in their path. Apparently born out of an animation created by designer Mike Dailly over a lunch break, Lemmings is a game-design classic that is as compelling now in its newest iteration on the PlayStation Portable as it was 15 years ago.

While a work of fiction, many claim it is soundly based on D.H. Lawrence’s, personal travel experiences in New South Wales. ‘Kangaroo’ is the nickname of one of the main characters, an ex-solider turned lawyer who leads a paramilitary team and is the obsession of the writer.
