Mayhem 12, 22 and 28 are all possible with 100% using bashers and builders. 12 takes a bit of steel bashing, the other two are glitch-free.

Tricky 21, from the skills you can't live without topic, I solved it using Builders+Bashers and Builders+Miners. Both solutions can easily be adapted to get 100%.

Due to the large number of skills, I'm fairly sure that Bombers+Builders (non-100%, obviously) and Builders+Diggers (100%) are possible too.

Tricky 14 works with Blockers, builders and bashers at the moment, athough think it works without blockers.

Let's get some more Taxing levels out of the way.

Taxing 4: builders, bashers, miners (100%)
Taxing 5: builders, bashers, diggers (100%)
Taxing 6: bashers, diggers (100%) -- obviously I'm not able to verify this for myself but it's fairly well-known that such a solution exists in the DOS version
Taxing 7 I won't answer since there exist solutions that don't use all five skills, but that post doesn't state whether it's possible to do without the climber and blocker.
Taxing 8 is obvious: builders, bashers (100%)
Taxing 11: builders, diggers (100%)
Taxing 12: builders, bashers, diggers (100%)
Taxing 13: climbers, blockers, builders, bashers, miners
Taxing 14: builders, bashers, diggers (100%)

Taxing 16 has been beaten with 100%, and since there's nothing you can release a blocker with, this must use just floaters and builders.
I haven't actually achieved this, but it's fairly obvious that Taxing 17 can be done with just builders and bashers.

Continuing on with the Taxing levels, 21 can be completed (100%, obviously) with climbers, builders and miners. I was trying to get a builder-basher-miner solution using the wall jumping glitch but I didn't have enough builders to make it work.

From here, I think we can finish off Taxing. Haven't verified 28 and 29, but I'll do so tomorrow unless someone else gets in first.

25 - builders, bashers (100%)
27 - blockers, builders
28 - floaters, bombers, builders, bashers [EDIT: and blockers]
29 - climbers, builders, miners, diggers (100%)

That finishes the Original Lemmings levels. No level required more than five types of skill!

The diggers aren't necessary for Taxing 29, it can still be completed 100% with just climbers, builders and miners.

Whoa, no need to rush through this. You're just going to miss stuff that way. Like:

Taxing 4: builders + miners (100%)
5: builders + bashers (100%)
7: okay, you didn't "miss" this as such, but it is possible without the climber and the blocker. (glitch solution since it involves bashing steel)
13: This is possible without the climber by bashing under the last one-way wall and stopping them with builders to make "steps".
14: Builders + bashers (100%).
29: nobody just posted a 3-skill solution, but it's also possible with blockers, builders and bashers (not 100% though. EDIT: And it requires a glitch)

:P You know as well as I do I wouldn't have seen those, "rushing" as you call it or not.

Anyway, I don't have the patience to verify the "normal" Taxing 17 builders/bashers solution, but I did manage to get 100% via the hidden exit. Something of a voyage of discovery, as I'd never actually reached the hidden exit before (though of course I knew it was there). The level's title turned out to be less than entirely truthful....

Taxing 28 verified with *five* skills. I had to use a blocker as well to prevent too many lemmings dying during the long bash. Clam Spammer, over to you on this one, I think....

Well, I thought you might have found Taxing 4 and 5 at least. They're not glitch solutions or anything.

Anyway, I just found another improvement to the above: Taxing 12, 100% with builders and miners.
