Last room on this level for me.
The left gel mother along with that oremite hot tile setup is infuriating me.
If I go lure the babies by going to the trapdoors above, I am miles away before the next spawn. If I let the mother spawn again, turn it to mud one more time and then make a run for it, I am still about 3 tiles off.

Is there some way to use the wubba here? Or a spare brain? I am stumped.

Here's what I think is the general flow to even get to the first mother:

That plan sounds like the way to do it, yes.

One more observation about the room (not really a spoiler, I'm hiding it just to be sure):

It took me ages to notice, because they kind of blend in with the background.

To be completely honest with you, at first I have been trying for a fair while to make it work with the wubba...

We're a little confused by the left mother at the (21,27) section.

Also, in my solution, the pickaxe was used for only one thing, then I went to get my sword back.

We're still kinda stuck, since it feels like we're either too slow or the aforementioned babies at (22,27) and (22,28) completely lock us from moving forward. It doesn't matter if they're brained or not.
