Patience is the twelfth level of the Fun difficulty in Lemmings.


Turn the first Lemming to appear into a Blocker as soon as he comes out the hatch (not necessary because you can safely lose up to half), then bash through the block to the right. After emerging on the other side, build stairs up to the exit platform.

Atari Lynx strategy[]

Mine through the stairs to reach the platform below and place a Blocker to the left to keep Lemmings from walking off the map. Bash through the wall and build up to the exit.

Alternatively, you can just send 20 Athletes over the wall as you only need to save half of your Lemmings.
