dhtml lemmings

<<reverse < index

A version of Lemmings running on a web browser. (Link from Check out the Lemmings Compendium for more information.) I loved this game. The object is to get a bunch of lemmings from a trapdoor to an exit. They all walk mindlessly in a straight line, and will plunge happily to their deaths off of cliffs, so you have to direct them by ordering them to tunnel and dig and stand still to block off their compatriots, and you only have a limited number of these orders. With the insanely cute sound effects, there is something murderously hilarious about it. (Nothing like a 100 lemmings screaming "Oh no!" when you decide to hit the apocalypse button to give up the level, causing each and everyone of them to explode and wreak havoc on the playing field. I remember giggling like a madman whenever they'd fall from too great of a height and splatter.)

I first played it on my oldest friend's dad's Amiga 2000 which was an awesome computer. It had two trackball/mouse/joystick ports, so you could actually play against each other, head-to-head, and indirectly massacre each other's lemming populations. (Like by creating a tunnel leading into the abyss, or sending suicide bombers.)

I also had a MS-DOS version, which wasn't as fun because you could only play the 1-player version, and I didn't have a sound card. Talk about a step back. (What could've been if Commodore had actually survived?)

Comment/Excerpt: Re People need a reason to chgnae search engines There are plenty of good reasons to switch from google.Google now tracks everything one does on the web for a lot of people:* those that use firefox' built-in anti-phishing feature, it means every URL you visit goes to google first,* google syndication and doubleclick engulfment can cover pretty the entirety of an unsuspecting person's web behavior* people have somehow turned the verb search into google , adding more to the omnipresence of googlePersonally I've long been using yahoo and other so-called B-List search engines. Admittedly the results are not as good as google. But I believe in choice, and fair competitiveness and variety . I don't and will not buy into this frightening Google == WWW trend. It may suit them and their shareholders , but it doesn't suit the interest of privacy, innovation, fair market competitiveness . PS. Note , I don't mind using google's blogger services, because there are other blogging services that on par with their service.
