Pushover

Pushover is a puzzle platformer video game developed by Red Rat Software and released by Ocean Software in 1992. It was initially available for the Commodore Amiga and later ported to various other platforms, including MS-DOS and SNES.
In Pushover, players control a character named G.I. Ant, a marching ant with the goal of arranging a set of dominoes in a specific order to trigger a chain reaction. The game consists of a series of levels, each presenting a unique puzzle that must be solved by strategically placing the dominoes. The puzzles become progressively more challenging as players advance through the levels.

Pushover review

ST Format (1992): "This is a fantastic game. At first, there may seem to be very little to do apart from wander around, carting different coloured blocks around the scenes, but the game has you firmly in its grip as soon as you succeed on the first level. There's no need for ultra-fast reflexes or lightning dexterity here, but that doesn't necessarily make things dull. Any comparisons to Lemmings must stop at the fact that Push-Over is, predominantly, a puzzle game - and so a bit of thought and planning is needed to take on the game in its entirety. It has humour, playability, durability, originality and a beautiful simplicity which instantly melts the sour taste of the hype - which, in these cynical times, no one believes anyway. A wonderful achievement. The Red Rat programming team have finally established themselves as a force to be reckoned with."
