Tightrope City (ZX Spectrum)
This level is notable for the maximum release rate by default, and the unusually low save rate. You shall soon learn why that is. Your Lemmings are to escalate a LONG staircase. And, as always, the higher you are, the harder you fall.
Your Lemmings cannot survive the fall, however, if you use all of your available Floater skills, exactly 10% will survive (12% in some versions). Make the very first Lemming a Floater, so that he will have plenty of time to work ahead. To gain extra time, you may even turn him into a Floater just before he hits the ground.
When the last Lemmings fall through the entrance, turn the last nine of them into Floaters as well. Meanwhile, the lead Lemming should build over the gap to reach the pillar. When he does, quickly have him bash through it. Once he chewed through the pillar, apply one last Builder skill to get over the gap before the exit. Enough bricks should be placed by the time the other Floaters arrive.
