I'm kinda lost here. What's up with this one? Is there only one method that I need to get through experimentation?

There's a tight sequence for the first few moves so as not to be overwhelmed. Once you've dealt with the first spawn, it becomes a lot easier.

To get started -- you need to take out the westernmost queens as quickly as possible, then start firing diagonally without moving into column 2, so that the queens in column 2 move east.

Outright spoiler for the first few moves:

At the beginning you want to stay left of the long horizontal lines of roaches so you can take them out with one shot. In between waves you can pick off a few queens at a time.
Edit: Oops, collision

Or maybe not, still don't get it. After some time I get between two rows of roaches and can't shoot them both.

Okay, can't get through wave 1, best I can do is get down to 6 or 7 roaches. I can't keep the other ones right of me and get oriented the right way.

Perhaps you could post a demo of your initial move sequence?

I left and thought I'd solved it and forgot but I think I was wrong, I would have updated my post and no demo saved. Here's where I am now, get swarmed from the south after this.

Adding another demo, not sure if I'm continuing down the wrong path or just missing a bit. But I can't figure it out. On top of it this is the last secret room I know of (I'm at 98%) so I'm pressuring myself to solve it instead of the many many non-secret rooms left to solve :blush

Okay, one more go and making a lot more progress. I'm taking the queens out one at at time now, but basically using the red doors as my boundary is giving me enough time.

Thanks!

EDIT: HOLD MASTERED! Now to solve the rest
