Lemmings ... the only computer game I've kept at

It's on-line, free and in glorious DHTML (that means no downloads required and it plays directly in your browser!)

Where? Here

The original came played on a Gameboy (research has shown that I was wrong and it was for the Commodore Amiga) which I bought during Jude and my round the world trip - in Indonesia I think. I wanted the game and still love it. I'm stuck at a higher level (have been for about 15 years I s'pose).

if you don't know what Lemmings is about check this out:
The game was unique and based around concepts previously untried. There are 120 levels, and on each level, the player had to guide a group of up to 100 lemmings home by giving individual lemmings various commands.

I was never that much into computer games, much to the annoyance and sometimes surprise of those that know me as "the computer guy" - they bore me too quickly. In fact, my brother refused to show new games as he collected them because, "You won't give it a go and get too bored too quickly!". He was perfectly correct; if I couldn't master it within 30 seconds it would be turned off.

Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and even Space Invaders left me cold. Defender was just too hard for me.
