I am amazed that I am the first to question this room. I get as far as destroying the brain, but am then attacked by the briar. I have tried in vain to find where I am messing up. It seems that I need to slow the briar by breaking wall at 36,25 but I am not sure. I start room with sword facing W. Any hints would be gratefully accepted.

Looking at the room image, it sure looks like killing the brain would result in an immediate halt to briar growth (thanks to that sister green door). Is that not happening?

I don't recall anything particularly problematic with this room -- if you're fast enough to get to the brain before the briar gets you, you should be all set.

Thank you for your quick response. Your reply tells me, I think, that I am one move behind. Actually the brair gets me at the same moment I strike the brain. I reach the bottom save point when the clock is on 25. Am I losing the stroke before or after this point? It gets awkward at 36,25 area, but I haven't reached brain without striking that wall. Perhaps I could use a demo.

I'll have to check my demo to make sure. I do remember it as being fairly tight, but yeah, it sounds like you just need to shave off a move somewhere.

This is the area where I was going wrong. Don't know if I ever would have come up with that on my own. Thank you.
