Don't give perfect scores just because your Newt's biach.

I like Kopoo the Lemming better (dispite it being simpler and more difficult) but that's not to say this is a bad game. Far from it. It's just not worth a 5 though. Why? Well so far every reviewer has neglected to even comment on what the game is actually like...

You control Zem, a lemming sort of creature. It plays much like lemmings except you only control the one and there is no mouse cursor. Zem walks back and forth in a straight path until you tell him either to build a stair, bash through a rock, or other lemming type things. The controls are a little weird to get used to, what with looking at the side bar to make sure you're going to the the right thing before falling off a cliff, and it gets a little frusterating in a few tight spaces where you don't have a lot of time to act. Still the concept is pretty novel for a zzt game. I think it's a little on the easy side though and once you beat it once you can forget about it for a while.

Graphically the game is simple and pleasing. Certainly Newt has a good grasp of the concept of video game aesthetics as can be plainly seen on the title board.

Dos! Downrating games you think shouldn't be at the top is a sad day ;-;

This a game is quite genius. I've only played through about 700 games of the za so far, and out of those I kept fifteen or twenty that kept my attention for more than a couple minutes. This was one of them. Simple, well-programmed, yes, but fun to play. It's hard to get fun and playability out of a ZZT game, and this game succeeds. It's worth the download.

A fun little Lemmings-esque game. Much better than the original, probably Newt's best game. I'm only reviewing this because it should not be the #1 game. That is a big error. Regardless it is pretty cool, and you should get it.
