Pingus | Free & Open Source Game! | Game Review

Pingus its somewhat modern take on the excellent classic Lemmings game from the 80s and 90s.

Pingus is, of course, Free and Open Source and available on Windows, Linux, and MacOS. It’s also possibly the best free Lemmings clone out there.

If you aren’t familiar with Lemmings (who isn’t?), it’s basically a puzzle game where you have to get your Penguins/Lemmings from the entrance to the exit whilst avoiding traps and other obstacles.

Truth be told, I really don’t like this game, or Lemmings because I don’t really like puzzle games. But I know a lot of people really enjoy them and they are actually really great games for kids, assuming they have the attention span & patience to play them!

I’m no huge Lemmings fan either but the graphics design look really charming for this type of game.
