I've lost that Lemming feeling is the twenty-third level of the Fun difficulty in Lemmings.


Turn the first Lemming into a Blocker next to the lava. Have the second Lemming bash or mine through the wall, then make the third block behind him. Continue using Basher and Miner skills until you reach the gap. Build across it, ensuring you stay lower to not hit the Flamethrower Trap, then have your Trailblazer bash through the two walls before the lower exit. Raise the release rate to 99 and bomb the left Blocker.

100% strategy[]

It is possible to save all Lemmings on this level. YouTube video

Atari Lynx strategy[]

Place a Blocker to the right of the entrance and mine to the lower exit on the left.

  • This map is also used in level 17 of the Taxing difficulty, X marks the spot.
