Dibbles: For the Greater Good

JohnBThe needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, right? Or, perhaps more accurately, the needs of the upper classes outweigh the needs of the plebs. No matter how you dice the words, the point is it's ok to sacrifice a few little guys so the bigger, more important ones can survive. The mobile port of the browser game Dibbles: For the Greater Good illustrates just that, providing a charming and intelligent Lemmings-like game that just might make you rethink this whole "needs of the many" business.

Dibbles: For the Greater GoodIn each level, red ant-like dibble troops will march out of a hut and mindlessly stroll about the stage, stepping right off of cliffs or walking into spikes if they happen to be there. So, being the wise player that you are, you get to save them by sacrificing a few to perform the task of guiding the others. Use totems at the bottom of the screen to teach individual troops to do things like form bridges, block deadly falls, dig through the soil, or splat themselves against the wall so the rest can climb up the side.

If you've ever played Lemmings, you'll feel right at home in Dibbles. The improvements in the control scheme won't go unnoticed, as instead of manipulating troops directly, you place commands on the map itself, which makes so much more sense. The challenge level is fairly average, if a bit low, so don't expect too much hair pulling. What it lacks in difficulty, Dibbles makes up for with crazy feats of selfless sacrifices, all in the name of the king!
