Changes[]

The major change is obviously the fact that this game is in 3D!

Here's a list of a few differences between Old (The Original Lemmings, Oh No! More Lemmings, Lemmings 2: The Tribes, and The Lemmings Chronicles) and 3D:

Old- The lemmings make a weird sound when you assign them something to do.

3D- The lemmings say "OK" when you assign them something to do.

Old- The first few levels are easy and are there for you to practice.

3D- The game has a practice mode where you can work on your techniques.

Old- The lemmings are thin and they walk like weird.

3D- The lemmings are a little bit fat and they walk normally.

Old- If you want to take a good look at the level, you go left or right.

3D- If you want to take a good look at the level, you better practice those camera controls!

Old- The lemmings dig, bash and mine causing damage to the structures.

3D- The lemmings dig, bash and mine causing the "blocks" to disappear.

3D- When you hit the bomb button, a lemming shouts "AR-MA-GEDDON!"

Story[]

The camera is on. Checking for trouble late at night. Everything seems normal. Suddenly, little eyes are looking out from the computer's CPU. The disk flies out of the slot and goes straight into the trash can. A lemming pops out, he is completely flat. The camera takes another look. It finds nothing. The lemming stands up and starts walking. He stops and falls just as the camera is looking at his area. The camera looks away and the lemming presses the "3D" button on the side of the computer. He pops into his 3D view. But the computer begins to shake followed by the desk! The camera looks away and the computer blows up! All the lemmings fly out and leave the room. The camera takes another look, it scans the computer site and looks at the door. RED ALERT!

User content[]

The first user content for 3D Lemmings was a single custom level, "Making One's Head Turn", created by Pooty in 2013. According to Pooty, this level was planned using Minecraft, and created using a hex editor. Although the level format was documented around this time, no actual level editor was created until namida's L3DEdit in 2019.
