Not efficient at all, but here ya go.

Also, how in the world were the top-scoring demos done? I don't know of any way to skip level 12 and then come back up to enter the room from the other side...

Oh. Nevermind. :lol That's an interesting trick.

Oh this room. This room had me stumped forever. Even watching a demo posted earlier didn't help. I actually ending up giving up JtRH for a while and playing through KDD instead.My big problem was I didn't know about backslashing and backstepping -- skills absolutely necessary to conquer this room.

I'm attaching a demo for you. Watch it through a few times and you'll start to see where the "safe" areas are and how you really can move from one orb to another. Good luck and don't give up.

my main problem with this room is i get into a corner (eg. the first switch. and then I never feel like i can kill enough to get out. and if I try to venture out to take on the tar I get killed.

How do you watch the demos? I can't get JTRH to open it, and it won't work in TCB because the hold is, of course, not there.

Edit: Of COURSE I manage to solve it next time I go to try! :lol I'd still appreciate knowing this for other times though...

I beat this room and the game long ago, now I'm trying the "clear all tar" challenge.

I've got as far as hitting all the orbs, opening all the doors, and am about to hit the thing from the eastern entrance - but I don't have a clue how to go about actually clearing all the remaining tar from its current shape (actually diving in and murdering the eyes early is trivially easy of course).

Should I kill the eyes and just hope I can cut it down to the right shape from the inside, or is that going to leave impossible blobs at the edges?

Do I have to whittle it down the hard way (and in the process, take out the babies around the edges, a few at a time), while it's still growing on me?

You can kill the eyes. The trick is that you can kill them on either an "edge" square that could normally be cut, or a "corner" square that couldn't. Which one you kill the last mother-eye on will affect whether the overall shape can be cut.

This is just a general note, I can't recall specific good advice for clearing the tar in this particular room off the top of my head.
