Each level presents a unique challenge, requiring players to utilize different abilities provided to the lemmings. These abilities include digging, building bridges, blocking paths, climbing, parachuting, and more. By assigning appropriate skills to individual lemmings, players can guide them to the level's exit safely.

It was an instant success, praised for its addictive gameplay, clever level design, and charming visual style.

The franchise also saw various spin-offs and adaptations, including "Oh No! More Lemmings," which provided additional levels for the original game. There were also console versions of the game, such as "Lemmings Paintball" and "The Adventures of Lomax," which introduced different gameplay mechanics and styles.
