How do I start this room? I always have babies going into unaccesible places.

There's really only one 'inaccessible place' you need to worry about. When you hit the top orb, there's no way you can get east fast enough to keep a tarstuff baby up there from going past the arrow. So the only thing you can do is

ARGH! How DO you cut that blob of gel to the north so no babies appear? I can't seem to figure it out at all! This is the last secret room in the game for me and it makes me want to take take my keyboard and shoot it.

Edit: Forget it. Just send me a demo, please.

Edit Again: Nevermind. I think I figured it out.

However, I can't seem to make it back before the baby spawns and it's all over. I'm probably overlooking something simple, but I've already got the rest of the room mapped out, and I'm dying to solve it.

Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: Good gob, am I stupid. I got it.

Can't we just have a demo and have done with it?

If you clear out all the tar from that room, then you won't have that problem. But it will take too long if you just dive in, so you need a way to clear a lot of it without growing.

Need help still. I can't figure out that lower right room.It turn out to be blue tar and even when I break the wall I still can't get room to cut it.
I dont have a swicher left. I mean I already use the trap doors in the entrance room.
I will probably have to start over .But where did I messed up?

Sounds like you did. That room starts out as mud, which is cutable, but you need to use the mud/tar switcher to get in and then again to cut it... and you have two uses, so it should work. But if you alternated between the uses of the mud/tar and the tar/gel tokens you can get it into a bad situation (mud -> tar -> gel -> gel (wasted the second mud/tar here) -> tar). You should focus on one section and then the other... each section uses one of the tokens twice.

How is the challenge possible in that case?
There's gel in the bottom middle section that cannot be cut unless all the trapdoors are used...

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, I cannot see how to access that area when it's tar (while still allowing the room to be in a clearable state).

I'm stumped at the top right's blob. I can get the pressure plate off just fine, but I have to do two things:
1) Make sure the tar doesn't grow back onto it when I switch it back from gel to tar
2) Keep the area clear of monsters, since I can't simply go back to it after I go into the middle section.

Problem is, HOW do I do that?

Completely remove that blob (when it's tar) before entering the middle section. Remember that if you have an uncuttable tar shape, letting it grow can help to make it cuttable.
