You Live and Lem (ZX Spectrum)

Don't let your eyes deceive you is the fifteenth level of the Fun difficulty in Lemmings.


Have the first Lemming begin bashing through the three large pillars, turning the next one into a Blocker for the rest. Afterwards, have that first lemming build a staircase over the approaching gap in the floor, and then do the same in the gap in the stairway beyond that. Once a safe pathway has been made toward the exit, bomb the Blocker so the remainder of the lemmings can follow.

Alternate strategy[]

Alternatively, an Athlete goes over the first two pillars, bashes the rest, and builds over the gaps. Bash the first pillar when done.

ZX Spectrum strategy[]

Build over the gap with the first two lemmings (if this is done correctly, the ramp will connect with the stairs), then bash through both pillars. Have the first lemming in line build over the pit before the exit while additional Builder skills are assigned to any other lemmings behind him to slow them down.
