Let's be careful out there is the twenty-seventh level of the Fun difficulty in Lemmings.


Place a Blocker to the right of the entrance before the edge, and build over the gap to the left. Place another Blocker to the left edge of the stairs and build to get to the roof. Block before the pool of acid, and build over the gap to the left to get to the exit. Raise the release rate to 99.

Alternate strategy[]

Alternatively, make the first Lemming a Floater. Just before the exit, it should mine a little and build to stop and turn around. Build a long ramp to prevent other Lemmings from falling to their death. Those who fall before you're finished are not necessary to save, but can still be turned into Floaters. Once the first Lemming hits his head and turns back to the exit, raise the release rate to 99. Unfortunately, there aren't any floaters available in the Atari Lynx version for this level.

Atari Lynx strategy[]

Place a Blocker to the right of the entrance before the edge and build over the gap to the left. Place another Blocker to the left edge of the stairs and build to get to the roof. Bash through the roof until you reach the other side and place a Blocker to stop your Lemmings from falling off the right edge of the map. Use a combination of Miner and Digger skills to create a safe drop to the exit to the left. Raise the release rate to 99.
