Lemming Lament is the second of four Special Replacement Levels. It takes the level 14 slot Tricky, replacing MENACING !!


Place a Blocker to the left of the entrance. Send eight Climbers over the metal wall one at a time and have them block and blow to create a downwards tunnel that will make it safe for Lemmings to drop to the ground below. Send one more Climber over the wall to act as the Trailblazer. It will need to build over the small hole, making sure the bridge connects to the other side at the right distance so that other Lemmings can walk up the ledge. Let it climb the taller brick wall and build a ramp up to the exit, making him turn back left in the process. When he's halfway across the third brick, have him mine down to make it easier for the other Lemmings to walk up to the exit. Have one of the Lemmings behind build over the steel wall, using the three remaining Builder skills, once the path is ready.
