Pingus is a free Lemmings clone for GNU/Linux
Pingus has started at the end of 1998 with the simple goal to create a Free (as in freedom, not as in free beer) Lemmings clone. It has become something more than just a clone, it has original artwork, a built-in level editor, new actions, multiplayer and a few other features. If you don't know Lemmings, here comes a short introduction. It's a puzzle game developed in 1991 by DMA Design. The player takes command in the game of a bunch of small animals and has to guide them around in levels. Since the animals walk on their own, the player can only influence them by giving them commands, like build a bridge, dig a hole or redirect all animals in the other direction. The goal of each level is to reach the exit, for fix multiple combination of commands are necessary. The game is presented in a 2D site view.
