Ugh. Yeah. This one is rough. Unfortunately there's no real puzzle linchpin here, it's just a matter of dancing the goblins around. I'll write some tips for surviving, but I also posted a demo in case you want to just be done with this room.

First, it helps to try to keep the number of goblins that are "out" as low as possible. So you can use that as a bit of a gauge of if you are being efficient enough. You don't really want more than 2 or 3 goblins out for more than a few turns.

At the end I was able to survive with four goblins out when the roach escaped. So 4 is manageable (though tricky).

I started the room with my sword pointing North and moving south immediately I was able to kill the first two goblins on yellow doors fairly quickly.

Other than that, it's a lot of guess-and-check. The attached demo isn't very optimal, but hopefully helps a bit.

maybe it helps to remember Goblins movement preference: NW, N, NE, W, wait, E, SW, S, SE
