I know that much! The roach-flood solution was the first thing that popped into my head. I never even touched the big metal monster muncher.

After beating the room (in only 8645 moves, natch), I visited the Challenges forum, expecting to see this:

Well, I knew the intended solution was to use the gentryii but at the moment I'm not really good at manipulating him so I tried this alternative solution. The funniest part was to find the correct position of the mirrors which is why I think it's not just a matter of waiting for the roaches to fill everything. Nice room indeed!

I assume Red-XIII's 8233 moves are the record so far.

I have 8476 moves.

Did this one on my play though. Sorry I missed this thread and made a redundant one. I'll post here instead.

I saw the intended solution but decided it would be more fun to see if it were possible to do it another way. I like how it wasn't as easy as just waiting for the room to fill up.
