I guess there is no room for error in this room right?

I go to the orb and hit it at 29th turn. I retreat to the west and kill the roaches right behind me.

Then?

Don't be in such a hurry to hit the orb.

Did it. I should not have retreated at all.

I'm still always one or two moves short.

What could I be missing?

(I'm doing exactly like the post above mine)

I studied my demo for a bit but I really can't give any advice above what everyone said other than "be more efficient" so I'm posting it.

It's also maybe a little different than the hints above - after the orb hit I get the 7 roach line at turn 22 which is sufficient for me to kill one of the queens.

This... Doesn't help me. The best I can get it (read: the ONLY way I can get it) is getting the roach line down to the 5 when you normally rotate, with the clock at 25.

I got it on my own; my bad for not saying as much. I have a chronic condition of that hints and solutions board curse.

I am at exactly this same endless cycle (rotate at turn 25).
And I can't watch jdyer's demo as it was made with a later version.
I bought this game as DROD 4.0.2

Any help please...

Oh, wait, there's one step I didn't say explicitly that might be making a difference. It's hard to tell at a glance.

Alternatively I might have been using inconsistent terminology because when following a demo, I sometimes get confused as to whether to refer to the turn the clock hand is on, or the turn that's coming up. At the moment in question in my demo, the hand is on 24.
