the previous link to this deals with another roombut i'm having trouble with this one - 5 north.

How do i drop the door to kill the cockroach to the east. I've got the mimic through the bombs and onto the force arrows but the bombs hit the orb. Help!!!

You must be careful to keep the real Beethro away from fuses on the left side until just before the mimic lights the fuse on the right side.

I do not really understand what it is that I need to do in this room. I did try to reach the arrows but I am not sure how to start. Thanks.

Hi All, I abandoned JTRH about 2 yrs ago on this room. Decided to try again. Started at level 1 to shake loose the cobwebs.

Here I am stuck, stuck, stuck in the same old room!

I CANNOT get through the bombs. The last few rows before the arrows. I figure I need my sword pointing nw but I can't see how to do this.

I'm talking about the mimic here. I know about the fuses & etc. I know how to kill the roaches but I can't manuever the mimic out of the bomb chamber.

Your assumption of direction is not correct.

I can't do it! With my sword SW or NE, I get stuck on the 4th or 5th row of bombs (counting down from top). I must really be missing something here! The only open paths I see (in the upper 4th of the chamber) run on the diagonals. The only place I see for changing the sword position is at the left on the 2nd row.

Thanks for trying to help.

I can't see the room image you posted only the "image not available" message. (for some reason, I can't see any of the 11th level rooms on this site.)

Maybe this is why I quit playing 2 yrs ago.

Well, if images don't work, maybe a (partial) demo does...

To import it, hit F6 while playing the room (or at the restore screen for it), import the attached file, then select it and click Watch.

np: Kettel - Choo Choo India (My Dogan)

You probably haven't uploaded your progress to CaravelNet, or aren't logged in somewhere. If you're not a subscriber it should display all rooms in JtRH though, shouldn't it?

He doesn't have a CaravelNet account, as can be seen by the absence of a trophy icon below his posts.

Also, if you don't have an account, you won't be able to see any room past the first three in JtRH, but you'll still be able to hit "Submit" and post or read posts about that room. This is to prevent spoiling rooms past where you are - if it didn't work that way, you could just log out and look at the rooms ahead...

I can't figure out how to get the mimic through the maze without Beethro touching the fuses. I'm stuck on the first part! Can someone give me a step-by-step on the first section? Thanks.

I've attached a demo for this room a few posts up and a few years ago - if you just watch the first part of it it's probably a better description of that path than any textual one I could give here...

np: Bibio - Saint Christopher (Mind Bokeh)

You just need to keep in mind that you can keep the mimic from moving by moving in a direction where the mimic is blocked by a bomb. This will let you move in a more comfortable position, possibly in the middle right section of the left side where there are no fuses around.

Past the second checkpoint, there are a number of places where you can trap the mimic by bombs in all orthogonal directions. As long as you don't move diagonally, you can move Beethro anywhere
