Next Lemmings in the attic

There's a lot of them about is the tenth level of the Tricky difficulty in Lemmings.


This level is like a mirror image with two trapdoors. Whatever you do on one side, you must repeat at the another. The percentage save is high, but luckily, there is not many places to mess up.

First of all, two Blockers at the two island edges are mandatory. Then trap one Lemming from each entrance between the rock and another Blocker. Pick one entrance to start with and have the trapped Lemming bash through the rock. Once he nears the edge of the island, order him to build a ramp towards the pillar. Let him land on the pillar and build one more ramp towards the exit. When done, repeat with the other entrance. Bomb the Blockers preventing the Lemmings from reaching the exit, and raise the release rate to 99. Bomb the remaining Blockers to complete the level.
