Lemmings is a computer game in which the player often finds a large group of green-haired lemmings, don't mistake them with the animal named lemming (see Real lemmings).

Since the lemmings just walk in the direction they are facing (they turn back when they hit a wall) and do nothing more, it's up to the player to guide the lemmings from the entrance towards the exit. The player can give skills to selected lemmings to overcome traps and other barriers. For instance, the player can make a lemming bash through a wall to reach the other side of that wall.

Lemmings is a game that started a completely new genre and is followed by official sequals and has also been cloned numerous times (see Versions).
