Gerbils is a cutesy strategic, puzzle platformer set in the dreamy Gumdrop Forest. Guide your Gerbils to the stage's exit without them falling to their doom. You can turn your Gerbils into all manners of skilled Gerbils such as builders, diggers, climbers and many more to guide the rest of the Gerbils to safety. Their little lives are in your hands, will they celebrate their success as they bound through the forest, or gaze at you with wide eyes as they plummet to their demise, their fate is in your hands.

I hope you like it :)

Really great

A good game. Makes you think =)
good graphs, cute sounds and overall a fun idea. the last level was a toughie =DD but managed beat it. Keep up the good work!

sunnyhani: I thought it was a bug too, but you are supposed to scroll it, like an iPhone touchscreen or such.

And enough about the lemmings guys, I think we all got the point.

I would love to play this

Currently, I am experiencing a bug right after playing the first level. The game takes me to the level select scene, where lvl 1 is displayed in a larger size with 'Gold' written on it. The 2nd level is unselectable. Please help me!

Not a bad lemmings clone

But it does have a few bugs. Namely walking over holes that have been dug :(

Great game, BUT...

Great fun for a while, but there is a game breaking bug. Sometimes (it seems random) the gardener (digger) gerbils get stuck after digging, and are unable to continue with the level. Shame.

This makes some levels unbeatable on the first try.

The graphics are simple, but fun. The sounds are well made, although the music gets VERY samey after 10 minutes. Either add more music to the various stages, or make a variation on the theme it currently has.

I enjoyed this game emmensely, although the bug and music choice makes me want to give this one an 8.
