There are two goals here:
-Leaving to the north
-Clearing the room

The latter goal is much simpler. You only need to get roaches to the upper left and upper right pressure plates. Then go into the briar area and hit the orb. Provided you've cleared out the queen and any stray roaches, everything else will take care of itself.

Leaving to the north is more complicated, and I don't have a demo because I don't think you can clear the room while doing it. You need to cover the pressure plates at (31,24), (31,17), and (8,21). This requires quite a bit of playing around with the roaches.

I'll give more specific advice if there's a particular part giving you trouble, but that's the outline of the room.

Thanks. I don't know how to get a roach to the upper-left. I'll take a demo if that's easier.

Thanks, got it.

Now I'll ask about exiting the room from the N. :D

im going nuts here.

i am missing something crucial here, because i always get killed by the briar.

the roach that steps on the pressure plate at 8,12 closes the door between beethro and the briar for only one turn.
This is not enough, the briar gets me.

what am i missing?

The only way you could be having that problem is if you led a roach over the plate at (19,29). This is not at all necessary to clear the room, so just don't do that.
