Already tackled through The Tomato Watcher's Rule 1 "And Now, the Incredible Shimmier!". This could be a backroute as I have a left over shimmier.

EDIT: Solved The Tomato Watcher's "So Near Yet So Far...". Got a basher left over so likely a backroute.

The first one is indeed a backroute, but I know how to enforce the intended solution, so I'll get right on that.

The second one is intended. The extra basher is there as an anti-frustration measure in case the spacing of the lemmings isn't kind to you. It also makes the skill counts match. ;)

I also solved And Now, the Incredible Shimmier but with a bomber left over. Looks simple at first but it a bit tricky though I suspect this is backroute.

Not what I intended but a nice solution nonetheless! :D It's valid enough for me.

I solved rule 1 levels 8-) Both have some leftover skills but I think I found the main trick at least ???

That's partly a backroute and partly an improvement I want to include. ;) It's not very far off though!

I posted + included an update in the pack. :)

Your solution to my R2 is 100% intended! Well done! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Aerial Antics (click to show/hide)

Well done! 95% intended but I made some small changes for V2.
My second level pack: Long Live Lemmings!
My first level pack: Yippee! More Lemmings

Your solution of my Rule 1 is, like mobius's, not what I intended, but it's perfectly acceptable. :)

Your solution of my Rule 2 however... That's really bad. :forehead: I'm gonna have to think long and hard about what to do about that. :(

Solved The Tomato Watcher's "What Goes Up..." (Rule 3). This seems like the intended solution.

EDIT: Solved kaywhyn's "Shimmier Lab Rules". If this is the intended solution, it's a great one! :thumbsup:

@Kingshadow3: Nope, not intended for my R1. It completely misses the tricks I intended! :XD: Part of it was my error, as I didn't check to see if I placed the terrain carefully enough. So, for V2 shifted some of the terrain, as well as added some terrain, and added two masher traps (before, I did a laser trap instead, but I quickly realized a way one could bypass it, and so I reuploaded the correct V2). As a result of the added traps, I needed to provide another shimmier. Let's see if this stops your backrouting now on my R1! :P

For everyone else, I uploaded V2 of my R2, as I realized some horrible backroutes earlier tonight. I don't have any solutions from anyone for it yet, but I did some preemptive fixes in it by more of my testing. I don't know if it'll be enough, but we'll see.

I'm amazed at how fast some solutions came in within the first few hours of the playing phase opening up! :laugh: I will likely start going through the levels of this contest within a week or so. I will have Thursday and Friday off work, so I will have more time to play through the levels then.

Solved kaywhyn's "Shimmier Lab Rules" V2. This one looks more intended but it also could still be a backroute...
