Author's Description: L++ is a single-/multiplayer Lemmings variant.
It revives the good old days of mind-boggling: Guide the lems to the exit by assigning special skills along their way. Create new levels with the in-game editor.
There is networking mode: Get a bunch of friends together, use knockback exploders to dislodge their blockers, redirect their lemmings secretly into your own exit... It's like two-player mode on the Amiga, except that you can play with multiple people.
I tried to keep the game mechanics, look and feel close to the DMA/Psygnosis original. However, it's not meant to be a perfect clone. Some game mechanics have been tweaked to balance the multiplayer mode, and there's some unique flavor everywhere.
I'm sorry that I cannot offer to download the game right now. It's growing in popularity by the day, and I wish to replace all copyright-restricted graphics with free ones first.
I began level scripting with Lua in 2002 and learned C++ in 2006. L++ is growing with me since then, whenever I feel like programming. (View Profile)
