Not as complicated as it looks is the eighth level of the Fun difficulty in Lemmings.


The level itself appears to be very large and intimidating, and you are also given 20 of every skill. But as the name suggests, this level is probably the easiest out there. Simply turn the first Lemming that drops down into a Blocker, and the rest will be directed to the exit on the left.

100% Strategy[]

Make the first lemming mine after some distance, then the second should block before the start of the pit. After the miner has ground over its head, build to stop it. Once the rest of the lemmings have gone to the exit, bash under the blocker to free it (dig to get low enough if necessary) then build to finish the path for the last two.
