Last one out is a rotten egg! is the eighth level of the Mayhem difficulty in Lemmings.


Use a Blocker skill on the very first Lemming immediately when he hits ground. Allow one Lemming to the right edge of the platform, then make another Blocker. That trailblazer has to build a ramp towards the one-way wall. You should get there using five Builder skills. Then use a Climber skill on him, and when he reaches the top of the one-way block, utilize a Digger skill when he is right at the edge of that one-way block.

Now this is gonna be nasty - you'll have to use a Builder skill to create a ramp leading towards the right wall so your Lemming can turn around and become a Miner. Now this is very hard to pinpoint, as your Miner's tunnel must match the ramp on the other side of the one-way block you prepared earlier. The best idea is to wait until your Lemming's position reaches the bottom line of the second steel block on the right, THEN start to build. It may require several retries to specify the exact location.

The rest of the level should be easier. Allow your Lemming to return into the tunnel of the one-way block. When he reaches the right side of said block, give him another Digger skill. When he passed two more steel blocks (on the right), give him a Builder ability, but after he laid two bricks, quickly make him a Digger again! This way you carve a "staircase" pattern into the block, and thus stop your Lemmings from falling to their deaths. When you're done, bomb the right Blocker and let the Lemmings walk into the exit. Blowing up the left Blocker concludes the level.
