Description: Lems is a VR Reverse Platformer. May very well be the first of its kind! In this game, players have to save little creatures called Lems. They are on predefined paths known to the player and filled with obstacles and traps. In order to succeed in his task, the player utilizes little platforms attached to his VR controllers that will follow their every movement. These platforms have unique properties (there are 4 different types of platforms currently in the game) and the player must use them in order to carry the Lems and make sure they arrive at the destination.
Review: Lems is a very interesting game that is a mix of genres. At its heart, it is a platformer, only with strategy elements that make the game more like an uncontrollable Lemmings game. The idea is simple, the little Lems walk in a straight line and want to get from point A to point B. Sometimes there are gaps in their path, sometimes there is hardly any path at all! So you need to guide each one to the goal and sometimes more than 1! The game looks great and there are 50+ levels to explore giving you great value for money. If you fancy a bit of a challenge this is well worth a look.
