How to clear this room? I always end up with a pattern where the northern blob is gel and the western one is tar, so I have to wait for it to grow past the gap in the chain to cut it.

The best I can do is a state where the tar is a 3x2 blob and the gel is reduced to two mothers - I guess the idea is that the two exposed mothers give me two chances to cut the tarstuff and thus change the western blob to a cuttable version, so that I can reach those mothers in the end - but there is not enough time to move between the two locations.

Hmm, thought I had something but I misread. The one thing I can tell you is that you want to get the tar blob to 2-by-2. Need to watch my demo more closely to understand how you get to that point.

I still don't get it. The pattern is slightly different, but I still don't have enough time, or I end up with an uncuttable 2x2 blob.

Right, I guess it needs to be done at the right time. Sorry, I'm mostly looking over my demo with a little messing around and it's hard to catch every nuance of the room that way.

Here's what to aim for:

Thanks!

This was unintuitive.

I guess the reason for my mental block was that "normal" DROD conditioned me to avoid creating 2x2 blobs of tar.
