Love the game, up to this point...Been working on this level for close to two weeks now. I finally caved in and looked at the hints under the yahoo group, but i still cant manage to kill that tar mama. Once I get into the slot right underneat the tar mother, I get ambushed on both sides...help!

It\'s a bit odd to do...you must get there with your sword facing up, with enough room to bury yourself into the bottom left of the tar mama with sword facing SE. I normally go to where all 8 come from one side, below the T.M., and then time when I should go through the maze.

Alright...I\'ll try not to spoil it for you...(I have given the solution away several times before)

1. Find places on the outer part of the maze where you cannot be attacked from behind you as well as in front.

2. Use each of these places to protect yourself until you are confident you can move on (Only 8 tar babies are created each time the tar mother blinks so they cannot pile up)

3. When going through the winding corridor to enter the inner part of the maze, position your sword so you can kill tar babies while moving (swinging your sword takes too many moves)

4. Efficiently, it takes around 12-20 moves to kill the tar mother and the tar babies formed around her, so you will need to find somewhere (relatively) safe to wait near her until you can deal with her.

5. One last thing... Never, never, never kill any part of the tar mother if you are standing in a corner. You have been warned!

Hope this helps you.

I must be missing something. I've got to where 1 and 2 are, but can never get into the TM. I've read the 5 hints given, but must be missing something in the translation. :~( Thanks for any help available. Let me just say I love this game, and will be divorced real soon if I can't finish it soon.

Thanks, Jim

I always did it from below not from the side. The gap at the bottom is several moves closer to the mother.

Well, I finally figured it out, took me a few days. Now I'm on to 2s,2w. Can't get this one yet, but have only been working on it for 15 minutes. Thanks for the hints. :)

well, I'm still stuck in this room, in spite of all the hints :)
The best I can achieve is shown in the picture: right after that the mother spawns new tar babies and there's no way i can get near enough to attack her. what am I missing?
Thanks for any additional hints

The way I solve it is really tough to describe.

I am going to attach a demo anyway because that really isn't much help.

Edit: got some strange error the first time, trying to attach again...

Game on,
