In 1991, DMA Design released a "1991 Christmas Edition" of Lemmings – called Xmas Lemmings on the title screen – to promote Oh No! More Lemmings. Gameplay is identical to the two earlier games, except that 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. The first two levels of the 1991 demo are original levels featuring snow and Christmas-inspired items like snowmen and fireplaces but, unfortunately, they're of the "send someone ahead to create the path, then wait for everyone to march across the level" variety. The next two levels are taken from Oh No! More Lemmings, but are updated to feature the Santa lemmings. There are 4 levels in this game, with 100 levels in Oh No! More Lemmings.
