My mum moved the pointer over to the retry button. "Well" she chucked to herself, " I know not to bash through there next time".
It's strange to imagine that a game that features genocide, torture and satanic imagery would find a place on a Nintendo console considering the importance the company places on maintaining a family friendly image. Of course any objectionable content is disguised by charm and whimsy but the reason it is on a Nintendo machine is because it has been phenomenally successful on other platforms first.

When I asked him what Snes conversion of an Amiga game I should write about he picked ‘Lemmings 2: The Tribes’ and I’m glad he did. As Tony Mott said in his review, it is “not exactly a Snes title” and he is right of course. If you want to play the game, you really should dig out the Amiga original, but often it’s easier to play older games on consoles. The Snes version with a mouse is excellent, and when I wanted to rebuild the games from my youth a ‘Lemmings’ game had to be included. In my youth they were the games my whole family played, which is why my mother and brother both wanted to get ‘Lemmings 2’ for me for my birthday. When I eventually get to see Sam’s book I know which pages I will get teary over and they will be covered with little blue guys with green hair being tortured.
