Origins and Lemmings is the fourteenth level of the Fun difficulty in Lemmings.


Bash through the first vertical pillar to the right, and upon emerging into the next area, begin building up to the next. Once you've come in line with the horizontal pillar, bash through the entire way until you reach the next area. Repeat this process for the following area until you emerge onto the exit platform.

ZX Spectrum Strategy[]

The first lemming must bash through the first pillar, then build over the hole in the lower pillar with any lemmings approaching it. Continue building until you reach the next pillar and bash through it to reach the exit.
