Minions are navigating hazardous terrain - give them jobs (basher, miner, blocker, builder, etc…) to help them reach safety before time runs out! I played a beta version - so the final rating may change. Awesome adaptation of the Lemmings computer game. A bit challenging to figure out the controls and get down the timing, but otherwise really captures the feel of the original - Minecraft style! Level editor is superior to other game maps I've seen recently. Level design tends to be on the hard side. Could use a tutorial. Visual build is very complimentary of the computer game.
Saw this on the yogscast channel and I'm sold. It reminds me of Flea Circus off the old Jagex website (which was probably a clone of that Lemmings game now that I think about it). It's great to see such creative use of the new 1.8 stuff.
