    I loved that game years ago and it seems a natural for the iPhone....why don't we have an iPhone port after all these years of iPhone apps?

    That would be awesome. They did port over Oregon Trail. I haven't played Lemmings in years.

    I thank God there's no Lemmings for the iPhone/iPad yet because my daily productivity would be cut in half :D

    There was an iphone version. It looked like it was well on the way last year, then sony (who now seem to own it) killed it, as they were doing it without permission.

    Lesson #1: never steal somebody else's work, spend lots of time and effort doing it, and expect whoever owns it to smile and pat you on the back.

    Lesson #2: sony sucks. This would be a massive success on iphone + ipad. They should either release it themselves, or, (and more likely) license it to somebody who'll do a good job of conversion.

    I remember playing it on the iPhone a while back. I didn't keep it, they game play was only so so. I didn't like the way you had to scroll back and forth on the screen.

    iDOS is available again....the trick now is to find Lemmings and figure out how to install it.

    Try "Chicks" for the iPhone. Very much like Lemmings.
