Sir Edmund Hilemming is the eighth level of the Hail difficulty in Holiday Lemmings 1994.


With all those Builder skills, you'd think you will need to get over all of those snow spikes. The truth is however you don't have enough time to pull that off. To solve this level, you need to go under, not over.

Have the first lemming mine to the right when he's about halfway up the slope, then bash when he's about four pixels away from falling off the map. Meanwhile, the second lemming must dig when he's under the right latch of the entrance. Once no lemming can walk to the left, make it build to stop him. If the lemmings walk out of the pit to the right, have one build over the Miner's tunnel so they can't follow. When there is two minutes left on the clock, have one of the lemmings held back bash right either out of the Digger's pit (or through the ramp over the Miner's tunnel if applicable). Even after four minutes the Basher will still not have broken through the snow. But the moment he does, have it build over the chasm to reach the exit, stretching out the bridge as much as possible.

  • The name of the level is a pun on Sir Edmund Hillary, a New Zealand mountaineer known for being the first climber confirmed to have reached the summit of Mount Everest.
