Better Enjoy Your Weekend, Part 2

Who Doesn't Like a Game About Mindless Mass Suicide?

In the latest installment of my Better Enjoy Your Weekend series comes Lemmings.  Lemmings was a game that was originally released on something that we called a 3.5" floppy disc despite the fact that it was rigid and only its predecessor the 5.25" disk was actually floppy.  I actually remember playing this game from the DOS command prompt on my first computer, a 486 my family bought in the 1990s.  I'm happy to report that through the magic of the internet the exact Lemmings game I remember from my childhood is available here.
Level 1

I suggest that if you do try to play the game, you do so on at least the "Tricky" difficulty setting because the "Fun" setting is too easy even for a guy like me who does not play a lot of video games.  Also, if you do play, be prepared for the annoying fact that after you assign a task to a lemming you will have to click on the action icon twice to select it for the next Lemming.
