Pingus – free Lemmings clone

Pingus is a free clone of the popular Lemmings game.

Your goal is to guide a horde of penguins through a world full of obstacles and penguin traps to safety. Although penguins (unlike lemmings) are rather smart, they sometimes lack the necessary overview and now rely on you to save them.

While Pingus is based on the idea of Lemmings, it has included some other ideas, which were not presented in the original Lemmings, such as the worldmap or secret levels, which might be familiar from games the Super Mario World and other Nintendo games.

Features include:

  • 22 levels accessible from the GUI.
  • 10 Xmas themed levels, 10 Halloween levels.
  • Attractive 2D graphics.
  • Levelsets.
  • Level editor with minimap.
  • OpenGL rendering.
  • Unicode support
  • Language support for many different languages including Czech, German, Finish, Italian, Norwegian, Serbian, Turkish, Danish, Dutch, Spanish and French.
