Due to popular demand, Pysgnosis created a complete Christmas-themed Lemmings in 1993. Gameplay is identical to the earlier Lemmings games, but the lemmings are dressed like Santa Claus, and Christmas music plays in the background. Lemmings are little guys with green hair who walk in a straight line until they bump into something or die, usually by falling off a cliff. Lemmings can be assigned tasks to perform from one of eight modes: climber, floater, blocker, builder, basher, miner, digger, and exploder. Players must use these modes to guide a required percentage of their lemmings to the exit, overcoming barriers, falls, and traps, all within a time limit. Lemmings splatter if they fall too far, get crushed, juiced, or decapitated by traps, and can blow themselves to bits, individually or en masse, in hilariously gruesome detail, which is a favorite feature of many players, and lessens the frustration of failure. Advanced problem solving and reflexes are necessary to save the lemmings. There are 32 levels in this game, with only four levels playable in the 4-level mini-version.

I have found no ordering information for this game. The full version was widely distributed on BBSes with a different filename to differentiate it from the demo, but there is no accompanying license file to prove that DMA Design declared the game freeware.
