Hello everybody.
Not getting this room at all.
I have to kill 5 aumtliches to finish the room
To kill them I have to enter upper part of the room via force arrow. To return back I have to go around the bombs
To go around the bombs I need to keep aumtliches alive to stay on pressure plates
Keeping them alive equals to not finishing the room
killing them equals to not passing back...

One thing it sounds like you are missing is that the pressure plate at (30,19) disables the force arrow at (19,18). So you can keep all the aumtlich alive then reenter the room with them to kill them. You can exit the way you came from instead of through the bombs the second time.

There's another trick to the room that tripped up a lot of people during the race. So just in case that's actually what you are having trouble with here's a hint:

It seems that an element was added to the final version of the room that disables the workaround described in the spoiler.

But that means I have less than 90 moves to enter the room, move the mirrors into place, let out the aumtlichs and direct them onto their pressure plates.

If that's possible, I don't see how.

This is incorrect. It still works, in fact I seem to recall the architect saying this trick was intended. You just don't quite have all the details of it.
