This seems like it should be trivial, but I can't figure out how to get it back on the flame.

There's a way to increase the distance between you and the baby.

I believe the major trick here is figuring out how to widen the gap between beethro and the enemy chasing him.

Have you figured out the technique to widen that gap?

It's also a lot easier if you start out the room with a good distance between you and the tar baby.

i can get space between me and the baby, but not enough to maneuver once the brain is dead. Once you kill the brain, the baby makes a bee line for you, and you're dead.

nm, got it

This room depends on understanding how brained monsters choose their move. Beethro moves first, so after his move, the tar baby is distance 4 from Beethro. It evaluates all the squares around itself, then narrows the selection down to those with the least distance (distance 3). Then, from those, it prefers North, then other orthogonal directions, then diagonal directions.

That means that if Beethro moves only N, NE or E, the tar baby will always make the same move, remaining exactly three squares SW of him. Now, if Beethro moves around the brain and then moves NE, the tar baby has only one move that keeps at distance 3 and that move is onto the brain, which is impossible -- so it will move N instead, enlarging the distance to 4.

Thank you .I will try to understand the theory.My situation is that I need to get the roach to be at 14,3 or 14,4 when I kill the brain. I dont seem to be able to do that
