I get the concept of how to solve the room. At least I think I do. I set up the first part of the solution, no problem. Then I need a certain something blocked for a bit. So here's the part I don't get: how to get the golem by the stairs to step on the pressure plate at 8,8. I can't put a baby up there because of the south facing arrows, so it has got to be the golem that activates it. If I head over that way he gets stuck on the east facing arrow and I can't get him off of it. Is there a way to get him off the arrow? Or is there some magical way to bring him down on a diagonal and avoid the arrow entirely? Or am I just wrong in my initial assumption that I must get him to step on that pressure plate in order to solve the room?

Well, um, yeah, your assumption would be wrong.

You noticed that all the rooms on this level must be solved in multiple stages.. ie. first you must enter the staircase.. Then maybe you can solve it?

Oh. I've only solved two rooms so far on this level so hadn't really absorbed a pattern yet. Was the scroll somehow implying that? 'Cause I totally didn't get that. It didn't seem to make any sense to me really. But I'm often dense. Thank you very much for the push in the right direction.

EDIT: Well that was much easier. :D

Hello.
I have finished this hold and I want to get to the secrets behind the broken wall that is not yet a broken wall. However, despite my attempts at using a combination of the tar babies and the wubbas, I can't get them to stay with the green doors open. Any suggestions?

I solved this room without too much difficulty, but the secret is completely evading me.

The problem is that the green doors that originally kept the tar babies in place are open, and I can't figure out how to keep them there.

Edit: didn't realize the demos above were for the secret, never mind.

How can I get the builder to the wall with the room cleared...?
