It's an easy level to beat, you just have to be careful. Each lemming has to dig in a different place. Lemming digging will fall to the level below safely, lemming falling though a already dug hole equals splat. And you can't lose one lemming to win the level.

No I mean the SNES Version. It only gives you 3 minutes to get 100% and you only have 40 diggers. I think it's impossible to beat. I tried about a hundred times.

just beat it - that was pretty easy... I sped up the speed at which they spawned to 60 and waited till the first one was at the end and had him start digging - then as the next lemming got up to him, I had him start digging - and so on for each of them. That ledge is just high enough so that if they fall from the top, they will die but if they fall from the bottom of the top ledge just after they finish digging, they will be fine.

Is this the level you need to have them dig then when they are falling, you put on the parachute?

As you can see in the picture, there is no parachute. David_M and Trigger are exactly right about the solution. A fall from where they start will kill them, but having one dig and fall won't, so you have to make every lemming in the level dig through the platform. This means that you have to let the first one walk as far over towards the exit as you can before you assign it to be a digger, and then make each successive one a digger when they're as close to the edge as possible. If you make them dig too soon, you'll run the risk of running out of space to have them dig through.

The really sad thing is that I remembered the solution to that level as soon as I saw the picture, and I haven't played the game since we had it on the Amiga, way back when.

Ok, how about Level 3 on Mayhem, titled "It's Hero Time!" I found a solution on a site linked from the DHTML version of Lemmings, and I followed it to the letter, but I can only get 12 Lemmings home before the minute runs out.

Link to Solution

Thanks for any help.

Oh, this really brings me back, looking at al the levels C-Mart linked to. Didn' the SNES version have 5 extra levels, though? I seem to remember them, but that site didn't show the ones I am remembering .

You need to speed up the spawn rate of the lemmings and then do the digging technique mentioned by countless others.

Yes, it does--the Sunsoft levels.
