Many of you will know that, thanks to time travel, there was a Lemmings spin-off starring the cute creatures from TSS back in the early 90s. Although it never had an official level editor, over the years there have been several unofficial editors, and there has been a small community of fans building and playing each other's levels for a long time.

Lix, developed by Lemmings Forums member Simon, started life as a recreation of the two-player mode from original Lemmings. (Each player has colour-coded lemmings and a separate exit, and you score points for lemmings of either colour entering your exit.) Lix expands on this with maps for up to eight players, and new skills specially designed for making multiplayer more balanced and more interesting (such as the batter, which knocks nearby lix around with a baseball bat -- perfect for removing enemy blockers).

Naturally, the game comes with a pack of single-player levels as well (in fact three packs -- the main pack by the Lemmings Forums community, one by Rubix and one by Nepster). The main pack contains 240 levels across six difficulty ranks, all the way up to the aptly named "Hopeless". I made about a quarter of the levels, including the third-last level of the pack :) Any time you see "Michael S. Repton" in the level credits, that's me.

Single-player Lix includes the equivalent of UU: you can step or jump backwards or forwards in time as much as you want, so that levels requiring precise placement of skills aren't an issue any more. Accordingly, the levels we've designed concentrate much more strongly on linchpins and the variety of interactions between the skills.

Here's where you can download the game.

Download everything in the zip into the same folder. It contains a "levels" folder, and the game will look there for levels.

If you're asking about making your own levels, recommended is to create a subfolder within "levels/single", named anything you like. In-game, navigate to this subfolder and click "New Level" to get started.

The runner, like the climber and floater, is a permanent skill; it remains on the lix until she dies or exits.
