Geography of Game1

The basic representation of a Lemmings scene is the pixel map provided by the Lemmings program. However, additional representations are needed for the following purposes.

  1. Prediction of what will happen. When a person does it, the person does not generate an new pixel map. To do that the person would need to be able to simulate the Lemmings program, and we can't do that. Apparently prediction is based on a representation of scenes simple enough for a person to update.
  2. Planning a strategy.
