Lock up your Lemmings is the thirtieth and final level of the Fun difficulty in Lemmings.


This level is slightly frustrating because there is a 50% chance that your first Basher will bash in the wrong direction, forcing you to barricade the end of the platform with either a Blocker or Builders.

Have the first Lemming bash through the first lock to the left, then bash again when he lands in the second lock.

  • If he goes left: Let him walk a few steps, then dig. The drop won't be fatal and your Lemmings will reach the exit.
  • If he goes right: allow him to bash about halfway through the column, then get him to dig for a while. Make him build to turn him around, then bash or mine so he falls onto the exit platform.

Either way, it is possible to get 100%, though this is probably easier in the second case.

On the Windows 95 version, this strategy is a lot easier to pull off thanks to the arrow keys allowing players to only select a Lemming going in the selected direction.

Version differences[]
