Next Down, along, up. In that order

The Crossroads is the fourth level of the Mayhem difficulty in Lemmings.


The fun continues...no sooner you finish a level with a VERY strict time limit, and you get another! Thankfully, with the given skills, it is easier to finish this level under one minute.

If you want, utilize the time trick with the pause button as you did before (immediately pause, and when the sounds are faded, unpause) to save two to three seconds. Allow your Lemmings to scale the chainlink structure to the point where the chainlink pattern gets more sparse, and use Basher skills there. Always target the first few Lemmings! You'll have to open a way diagonally towards the outer strands of the cobweb, allow your Lemmings into the first empty space at the left side of the cobweb, and use another Basher at the diagonal strand - all in one quick session. As you can see, completion of this level is highly based on luck.
