[POLL] Your favourite Lemmings skills [POLL]
« on: September 19, 2021, 11:18:10 PM »
Choose your favourite Lemmings skills in the above poll: you can check as many as you like. If I have missed one, let me know in a comment and I will add it to the poll.

Feel free to discuss any of the skills, and the reasons for your choices! :)

N.B. Remember to make your choices based on how these skills appear in Lemmings (1991) and Lemmings 2: The Tribes (1993), but by all means discuss and make comparisons to their inclusions in any other Lemmings games/ports.

Blocker, builder and floater seem the most iconic to me.

And since it made its appearance in NeoLemmix I've grown fond of the shimmier. It looks great and opens up a lot of possibilities in level designing.

Yes, from a quick count, I think that every L1 and L2 skill is listed except L2's bomber (which maybe got omitted because of the identity of name, but the L2 exploder is the same skill as L1's bomber). Also, the list has "booter" but the name of the skill is "Magno Boots".

L3's walker should be on the list; it's basically the same as the Lix/NL walker but it did originate from an official game.

I'm not going to vote in this poll since I've barely played L2, and for my favourite L1 skills, I can vote in the NL skills topic :P

I think the floater is a really iconic sprite and think the blocker has some really neat interactions that I'm still learning now. In terms of destructive skills I think the miner is really versatile and I both like and am immediately worried to see it in hard puzzles because of the possibilities it opens up.

Are we missing the nuke, or does that not count :evil:

...
L3's walker should be on the list

Updated the poll.

P.S. The L2 Bomber is very similar to L1's, so decided to leave it off. If, for example, it had been an instabomber rather than timed, I would've included it.
