Ok, 2 questions.

Do you use the mirror for anything?

How do you kill the top pair of eyes

I think that It's fairly obvious that my mirror manipulating is lacking, because I can't get it over to the other side without getting my clone on the other side a well.

Also, is there something about evil eyes I don't know about? Because I can't see how dragging a mirror around will trigger them.

Yes, your clone will be passing the mirror to you. You may need to do a bit of back-and-forth to accomplish this though.

Mirrors reflect evil eye gazes, so you can trigger one from behind.

Game on,

Can anyone point the exact spot out for me? The lack of any grid in this room makes it very tedious.

when you push the mirror to the right spot, just moving the south clone around the perimeter will set off the eye (or you can click the eyes to see the spot)...

the place you want to put the mirror is so obvious you don't need a grid. it's the spot you'd die if you went personally.

I'm having the exact same problem (can't manage to get the mirror to the north side without getting the clone stuck there as well), and I can't really see how this advice helps. Doesn't the clone have to stay in the south part of the level, so he can get that last brain? Or am I missing something important here?

Ah, disregard that, I missed the inconspicuous 2x2 square on the right side. Thought it was part of the scenery or something.

Okay, I've passed the mirror over to the north side, but now I have a problem. If the southern clone has to push the mirror, he'll get stuck on the top arrow, so then he has to ride on the platform, or he'll fall off.

The question is: how do you get Beethro, his clone and a mirror to the 2X2 square safely?

Wait, I'm confused now. Do I have to get Beehtro and the clone and the mirror on the northern side of the platform? Or do I do something different?

Ah! Yes! I finally got it! Thanks everyone! But for some reason, my victory demo doesn't show up in F6? Oh, yeah It did. But I had to restore and kill the brains again.

I've read all the talk about the mirror, but I can't even get to the mirror. How do I get past the bottom eyes? (No doubt I am missing something simple again.)

Yeah, it's fairly simple. Sure you want to read spoilers?

Groan! I certainly didn't need to read the second one. Thanks.
Why do I always try to make things more difficult than they are?

I don't understand whether to bring the mirror to the nord. After having put the mirror on the platform, as do I do to push it on, if everybody the arrows go to south?

My issue is getting the mirror FULLY onto Beethro's side. I got everything else, but I just CAN'T get the mirror all the way for Beethro. It's limited to just the north-facing force arrows.

I feel like the 2x2 platform MIGHT be part of it, but at the same time, the only moves I make to put the Mirror on there result in it being stuck there, and irretrievable.
