I assume you need to go around the room blocking off the path to create the right tunnels for the roaches to come to you once you step on the pressure plate for the left-most room.

There seems to be no path to the right side of the room as I via the top half I can only get to 12,12 and on the bottom, not outside the starting squares without the black 1x1 walls.

Did you notice that those purplish squares near the door are floating platforms?

Yes, when I first did this room, I didn't realize those were platforms either.
The method I used to solve this room was:

I have tunnels made, but I seem to have stranded myself; I need 5 platforms to replace the trapdoors I removed to get to the other roaches.
I'd like explicit hints or a demo.

Meh, got it after posting... now I wish I'd saved those mod points for some of the other rooms on this level.

Well, there are 6 platforms, so if you can get them to those 5 places and get out, you're done. There are ways to move platforms around in pairs in this room so you can leave one behind, though it's maybe a bit trickier than in an open pit.

I still haven't beaten this room, but somehow I decided those were down red doors when I first entered.

A demo for this room sure would be nice. I have lost patience with it.

I have been trying this room for days. I would like to finish the secret rooms so I can play the bonus level. I have otherwise finished the hold. At this point I too think I need a demo as all other hints have failed to help me.

Thanks for any help

Let me warn you up front - this is a very long demo. :yawn I did a lot of unnecessary trapdoor-dropping to make things a bit clearer for myself. Regardless, the demo will demonstrate two things that will help you:

Thanks Corgi_T, that has helped me out greatly, I am working through all the secret rooms now as have finished the hold but for the life of me, I can not find the 2nd secret room on this level, would it be asking to much if someone can at least give me a hint as to which room to look in as I have gone around and around but can't find another wall to attack.
