Gamers from the 1990s should fondly remember Lemmings. Adorable yet dimwitted, they were a little too keen to jump off cliffs meaning it was down to you to figure out how to stop them doing exactly that. It was a fun puzzle game full of different tools to persuade the lemmings not to jump.

Kind of like that but with Meerkats, comes Meerkatz Challenge – a game set for release in a little over a week’s time. The game will be immediately familiar to fans of Lemmings and in a very positive kind of way.

This time round, it’s the meerkats that have a death wish and there’s a different bevy of tools to keep them safe. There’s the typical blocker tool but there’s also the ability to use a mushroom as a giant trampoline, propelling the other meerkats skyward. A trainer meerkat encourages the others to run at speed, making it possible to get across huge gaps when combined with a mushroom spring. A blower type will keep meerkats in the air, safe from danger.

We got the chance to briefly check out Meerkatz Challenge and it’s looking pretty entertaining. It offers the same vibe as Lemmings but with its own bunch of tools to keep things original. Controls are tight and effective with the option to speed things along as and when needed. Simple taps cause you to choose which tool to use and it takes seconds to master. Even in the early stages though, some careful thinking is required to get past the stage. Up to three stars can be gained depending on how successfully you completed the stage and how many meerkats you managed to save in the process.

Graphically, Meerkatz Challenge isn’t going to wow audiences but it certainly offers a pleasant charm, ensuring you’ll be attached to these cuddly critters.

With 4 different areas to explore and plenty of levels to negotiate, Meerkatz Challenge is shaping up to be pretty interesting.

We’ll talk more about it next week, when it’s released on July 24.

Later this month you’ll be able to enjoy the pleasures of Meerkatz Challenge, a puzzle platformer that seems rather reminiscent of the classic puzzle game, Lemmings.

Players must help guide a mob of meerkats as they attempt to travel the world in search of peace and tranquility. Digging, jumping, climbing, and many more activities will be involved when it comes to keeping the cute animals safe.

Set for release July 24, we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop regarding its development.

In the meantime, check out the cute gameplay trailer below.

TipTop Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
TipTop requires you to guide a band of brave (but stupid) adventurers on their quest to save the world. The game is fast-paced and quickly becomes chaotic, and features super-intuitive controls. If you're looking for a fast-paced action/puzzle mix, TipTop is a great choice.
