In 1994, Pysgnosis released a second complete Christmas-themed Lemmings game. Gameplay is identical to the earlier Lemmings games, but the lemmings are dressed like Santa Claus. 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 all 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. The strategy in the demo levels are very easy; the difficulty comes from the timing, since every level requires you to save 100% of the lemmings. There are 32 levels in this game (in addition to the 32 levels from 1993 Holiday Lemmings), with only four levels playable in the 4-level mini-version.
