Dry ice and wide chisel should be able to pop them off fairly quickly. A dry ice gun would be even better, but that's a lot more money than I have.
The heat gun did not really make a goo or smell, I just got it hot enough to slide the putty knife between the asphalt and the floor, then pried it up in chunks.
