The Art Gallery is the eighth level of the Taxing difficulty in Lemmings.


Looks familiar? If it is, that's because you've been here before at the "Tricky" difficulty. You had no problem solving the level then. What about now...?

First of all, let one Lemming wander ahead to create a safe passage to the exit, you need to hold back the crowd. But how? No Blockers...hmm...looks like your choices are limited to using a Basher at the ring of spheres and then a Builder skill to make him stop. There. Now focus on the Trailblazer.

Use a Basher skill at the first hanged globe, then a Builder skill to reach the top of the second hanged globe. Apply another Basher skill on him to chew through the globe's rope. He will have no problem reaching the top of the third globe on foot - when he does, it's Basher time. Last but not least, a Builder skill and another Basher at the top of the last hanged globe. Time limit is stricter here than earlier, so you must move quickly.

You should have about six Builder skills left. Wait for your Lemming to reach the VERY edge of that chainlink-structure, and start building the ramp towards the exit. When the ramp reaches the leftmost crystal, let him wander off the ramp and walk up to the top crystal. You should have enough Builder skills left to reach the platform with the exit. While doing so, finish bashing through the ring of spheres so your Lemmings can reach the exit well within time.
