Now use miners and climbers is the fourth level of the Fun difficulty in Lemmings.

Have one lemming mine down to the lower area. Also, turn all of them into Climbers.

Version Differences[]

Atari Lynx
  • Was renamed "Miners and Climbers".
ZX Spectrum
  • Release rate is 50.
2006 Remake
  • 7 minute time limit.

Access codes[]

  • Acorn Archimedes / Atari Lynx: OPENSADOOR
  • DOS:
  • Macintosh: HNLHCIOECW
  • PC:
  • Sega Genesis: PSHNU
  • ZX Spectrum: JNDHBMOECT


  • This map is also used in level 20 of the Mayhem difficulty, No added colours or Lemmings. This is the greatest distance between any pair of repeated levels.
  • This is the first level in which you are required to save 100% of the Lemmings, except in the 2006 remake.
  • It is unusually hard to kill lemmings in this level. It is possible, taking advantage of a glitch on many platforms whereby a climber hitting his head will fall back down one pixel away from the wall, and placing a miner very precisely so that the climber falls through the miner tunnel and splats.
  • This is the first level with a release rate lower than 50, in this case only 1.
  • This is the first level to use the track One Way or Another on most platforms.
  • One of only four levels to require using all the given skills. The other three are Diet Lemmingaid, No added colours or Lemmings and All or Nothing. Oddly enough, the repeat map is another one.
