Well done, Robob! Now, would it be better to link to this thread from the backswiping tutorial rooms in future episodes, or just repost the image? Because one of those things should probably happen.

Is the room meant to be a tutorial? If so, why is it secret? If not... Why not? Backswiping is pretty important...
And if it's a tutorial, why not spell it out completely? Have a scroll in the right-hand part of the room saying to let the roach chase you into the other part and read the scrolls there. That should be enough I would think?

Thanks, Robobob! This is a great tutorial. We should have something just like this image on the fan site.

For a room that teaches the backswipe, I'd not underestimate the power of a floor pattern that shows the player where to move. It doesn't have to be optimal, just clear. For instance, showing a path with a distinct floor pattern on these highlighted squares, but nowhere else in the room for clarity:
