Right, an awesome soul helped me out and got the entire contents out of the Amiga Format issue 18 cover-disk image. :thumbsup: I've attached the zip file that they gave me.

Can anyone do anything with this stuff?

Well, this thing is complicated. All that matters here is just one file, "lemmings" and it's just 67KB. It is compressed (self-extract file), but I can't find which compressor is used and how to uncompress it. To be more complicated, this file don't want to work if 'Amiga Format 18 cover-disk' is not in one of the floppy drives.

Of course, after the game is started all data is uncompressed in the memory. So, it can be saved from the emulator as a state file. But, is this can be of any use to anyone? I can't tell.

Most likely the "lemmings" file is just a launcher, and the actual files are stored on the floppy outside the filesystem.  Usually you can get the files from Amiga Lemmings disks using the "rippsyfiles" tool that comes with JST, but it doesn't work on this disk.

There is some 'unused' space on that floppy disk (almost 240KB). It appears to contain some Lemmings data. So, just extracted file without the floppy image is useless.

Cloanto (the developer of Amiga Forever) is taking a while to respond, so I decided to install WinUAE and use the ROMs from an old version of Amiga Forever that I have lying around.

Anyway, I was able to rip One Way to Freedom from a savestate. Here it is: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yjovzrlyi42ra6k/OneWayToFreedom.lvl?dl=1

I think there are only three 1-player levels in that demo because the only 2-player level is labeled "level 4."

EDIT: I have just now confirmed that there are only three 1-player levels. In case anyone's curious, here's the message that appears at the end (misspellings are not mine):
Quote
The full game contains over 100 levels!
made up of five graphic styles with
many weird and wonderfull traps to avoid

Over twenty toe tapping tunes, or full
blown sound effects that are not in
this demo.

What are you waiting for, go and buy
Lemmings NOW, addiction guaranteed.

Yeah, there are only the three single-player levels in the Amiga Format demo.

Incidentally, the later standalone demo corrects the typographical errors in the advertising text at the end.
