    Wow, I remember The Humans from the days of the Atari ST and the Amiga - was a decent enough Lemmings style game IIRC.

    SORT OF reminds me of Lost Vikings. But just sort of.

    I wouldn't judge this game until you've played it. I searched a little and found a gameplay trailer for the DS version-



    If the trailer speaks at all, the game looks like it's trying to emulate the gameplay from The Lost Vikings, a beloved Blizzard game. No one can say for sure, but it certainly isn't the shovelware minigame collections or pet/job sims. It's some sort of platform puzzle game. Not tried it, but it COULD be worthwhile. Certainly won't do to bash it before you know ANYTHING about it.

    To be even MORE specific, the game looks a LOT like an old Atari Lynx game named Dynolympics-

    The gameplay seems to be a more action packed version of Lemmings.

    The graphics are nothing to write home about, but they definitely have a retro charm.

    Only difference with Lost Vikings is that all three had to be on the end platform - it looked like only one has to be in this game. Will try it and see

    This game is done by the remnants of the studio that made all the Humans games, plus the Dinolympics game.

    You don't really know what shovelware actually means do you?

    Its nice that some of the original developers worked on this, I can't say the series has aged all too well (compared to other puzzlers back in the day) but its a decent enough distraction.

    Nice, getting this for sure, and not waiting for -snip- to update either.

    I'm 20 and didn't know about it, but I was apparently smart enough to actually look it up before making immature and pointless comments about a game I didn't know about.

    Looks awesome, if it's half as good as the original it will kick ass!

    After playing a few levels, I'll say this will sit comfortably on my gaming shelf with Boing! Docomodoke as a puzzle game that's small enough to not be a bother but also cool to pick up and play a level and go for Gold in between marathons of other games.
