I'm not really sure how to proceed with this room. I've worked out a way to block growth in one section, but it doesn't extend easily to doing more than one at a time.

From a position like this, you can walk backwards while swinging your sword left then right alternating, timing it so you're back to the middle area upon the next spawn.

Then it's a matter of keeping enough babies around to avoid it growing back again.

find this room so so difficult !!

did the "disoriented's backwards while swinging" on the 4 branches, but then I'm completely stuck .
By the time i kill babies, carved tar is back again.
Also tried to clean middle section to close central door after trimming branches, but could not.

This room is crazy. I currently have the absolute worst demo on C-net so am probably not the best person to give hints, but I did basically the same thing you described above. I used disoriented's trick above to do each branch, retreating back to the middle and letting tar growth envelop me before starting the next branch. This required leaving two tiles of tar hanging out of each side of the square, and I kept this rotationally symmetric (though I can't remember if that was actually necessary) In case it helps, I went with the East branch first, then the south, then the West, and the North last. I've attached an image of what things looked like the turn right before I stepped on the pressure plate.

From there you can step on the plate and clear the remaining tar in the yellow doors letting you exit with the clone to take care of the rest of the room. I can post a (horribly unoptimized) demo if you want.

This room is crazy indeed, and genius.
Completely missed the fact that Beethro could step inside closed door.
Thank you !
