Here's one I prepared earlier is the fourth level of the Tricky difficulty in Lemmings.


Straightforward level, with a one-way rock. Thankfully you have plenty of resources to cope with.

The first mountain is passable without any skills. Turn the first Lemming into a Climber to get over the one-way rock, while the second one shall be a Blocker before it. Have the Climber build against the pile of moss before the grass bridge so that he turns around and have him bash through the one-way rock.

Now let the Climber head back right and walk across that moss bridge, and start building the ramp from the summit of the first rock. Two-to-three Builder skills will do. Allow him to fall down to that small earth island, then start building another ramp at the edge to the next rock, then from there once more towards the exit. When complete, bomb the Blocker (the floor is made of steel, you cannot save him) and raise the release rate to 99. You have plenty of time to watch your little Lemmings march to the exit.

Atari Lynx strategy[]

Have the first Lemming that heads back left after hitting the one-way obstacle start bashing through the first mountain of dirt. Once the tunnel is deep enough, turn the Basher into a Builder to interrupt him. Have one Lemming build up to the one-way obstacle just high enough to get above the "kink" in it but also to continue holding your Lemmings back.

Send an Athlete over the one-way obstacle and have him build over the chasm so that he can safely land on the island where the exit is. Then turn all other Lemmings into Athletes as the Basher's tunnel will ensure they all climb to the right.
