The 50 Best Puzzle Games of All Time

4. Lemmings

Year: 1991
System: PC

One of the all-time classic puzzle games, Lemmings’ works on a very simple premise: guide a flock of unintelligent, wayward lemmings to the end of each stage with as few casualties as you can manage. Lemmings are inherently witless, and require explicit instructions if they’re to do anything besides move forward, and with a number of jobs at your disposal—any lemming will happily build a bridge, stop other lemmings from moving or punch through a wall if you give them proper instruction—you can do just that. Still great after all these years.
