Christmas Lemmings is a series of short computer games released between 1991 and 1994, based on the original Lemmings game released in 1991. First released as Xmas Lemmings as two four-level demos in 1991 and 1992, there were two later full retail releases on the Amiga, PC, and Macintosh in 1993 and 1994, titled Christmas Lemmings in the UK and Holiday Lemmings in the US. The games were developed by DMA Design and published by Psygnosis.

The gameplay remained exactly the same as the original Lemmings game, requiring the player to lead the required number of lemmings to their exit by giving them the appropriate "skills". The original game Lemmings was not required to play any of the Xmas Lemmings games.

The difference between these games and the original game were the Christmas/snow-styled graphics of the levels, and that all the Lemmings wore Santa Claus suits.

The Games

  • Xmas Lemmings 1991 had only four levels and was a freely available Lemmings demo. It had two Christmas levels & two levels from Oh No! More Lemmings.
  • Xmas Lemmings 1992, like 1991 had four levels and was free. This time, they were all Christmas-themed.
  • 1993 Christmas/Holiday Lemmings had difficulty ratings "Flurry" and "Blizzard" with 16 levels each, and was sold in stores at first, but was later made freely available with the release of Holiday Lemmings 1994.[citation needed] A freely available "four-level mini-version" was also released to promote the game.
  • Christmas/Holiday Lemmings 1994 was sold in stores and had difficulty ratings "Frost" and "Hail" with 16 levels each, plus the levels from 1993, as well as two-player versions of all levels. A freely available "four-level mini-version" was also released to promote the game.

In late 1995, versions of the game 3D Lemmings came out with 3D Lemmings Winterland included, which was an expansion pack of four levels with wintry graphics. While it wasn't particularly Christmas-themed, but rather had the themes from 3D Lemmings disguised, its concept appears to be a conclusion of the Xmas Lemmings games.
