I can kill all the roaches in this room, but i can't get to the brain. I get petrified because i can't get the wubba to protect me in the last column/row.
I tried to wait for a queen to spawn, kill her and lure a roach to protect me from the beams, but the wubba always takes the lower-right corner before the roach(ironic, isn't it?) when i go for the brain, so i can't kill that last roach.

What's the trick here?

That gets everyone the first time! :evil:

Including me when I replayed it recently, and I made the room...

Game on,

I have a slightly different problem. I also manage to kill all the roaches, can even take 2 roaches with me, but can't kill them afterwards (after the brain is dead), as the wubba moves before them both.

No, actually, that's exactly the same problem I had.

For the record, Ezlo's advice is flawless.

Geez. I had the same problem, missed that, and had a lot of trouble. But I did manage it without the trick.

Me too...I don't get the trick though. Heh.

Edit: watched Ezlo's demo. I prefer my method. :)

Wow, good job guys. Ezlo's method is indeed the intended one, I didn't think it was possible without doing that. I definitely think it is easier to do it Ezlo's way, after watching zex's demo.

Game on,

OK, last room on the level and I'm really hopelessly stuck. I've been bashing my head against it for a while now - any chance of a demo? Thanks!

So, If I can just kill all the roaches and keep the wubba with me that puts the room in a unwinnable state? I hate the rooms where beethro doesn't tell me I've missed it.

edit: and any room with a real non-obvious unwinnable state to a certain degree.

Despite the cattiness I was actually wondering if I could finish the stage without the roach. I ended up using the demo, and figured it out.

I know it's hard to see, but those roach queens are on force arrows too. You can't lure them anywhere.

I'm in dire need of some help here. My boss is away and this is the third day trying to beat this room, I feel like i've come so far I cant give up now.
I'm left with a queen and a roach in the south west corner and just cant advance any further.
For some reason I cant get a demo so could some kindly soul please walk me through this last stage, boy I would be so grateful.

If I may quote our beloved Pearls: "wubba on wubba action"

Let's Play DROD: The City Beneath [Part 72]

This one is like DROD stand-up comedy.
