I watched that about a month ago.

The scariest thing is - they are missing some ports.

Checking in. Halfway through Taxing levels. Fortunately, level 15 was just another graphical showcase with no thinking really required, just a build-n-bash to completion. I can understand them recycling a few levels by giving you different abilities, but it's getting a bit much by this point.

Plus, these 100% rescue rates ! ! ! :evil:

In all honesty, not even the Lolo series has been so brain bending as Lemmings has been. To be fair, I haven't even gotten into the halfway point of Lolo 3, which I understand has some devious designs in the underwater levels.

There's a lot of levels like this. Use two blockers to quarantine every Lemming - except for one. Use that Lemmings to create the path to the exit. Destroy a blocker to let the rest of the Lemmings loose.

It does get tedious after a while.

If it all wasn't Build, Block, Bomb, Bash, maybe so :lol: I'll get through the rest of these levels!

Taxing levels COMPLETE. Funny how the last one was a rehash of a level from the previous 2 sets -- possibly Mayhem may add 80 diggers to that one? :lol:

Taking a couple days off then back to work.

Well I did it - I finally beat Lemmings. 8)

Last level wasn't too hard - just long and slow.

Mayhem levels -- better learn how to accurately build, that is all (so far)

Yeah that's what is so infuriating about some of the later levels. If you start your staircase just a little bit too soon or too late you're screwed.
