I'm getting drenched in roaches after clearing out two of the chambers at most - help?

(In contrast, that "flower room" in JtRH was a doozy - am I the only one thinking the "timer" in this room is a highly evil idea?)

np: Yagya - Like The Noise Of Great Waters (Will I Dream During The Process?)

I must admit hatred for this room. I'm so glad I completed it that I refuse to even watch how. General idea is top 2 chambers before the second spawn, and then a Z move down through each. I seem to remember the 11 queen room takes precedence over the two bottom ones too.

The other thing I remember is *never save* as it will cost too many moves. I completed it with only 3 moves to spare. How anyone can design something like this is genius... but yeah. Won't be playing it again... ever. :)

Okay, I give up - no matter what I try I can't even get into a 3rd chamber without being killed.

Perhaps someone could spare a demo? :(

np: Yagya - Choose (Will I Dream During The Process?)

If that's not enough, here's a demo from the beginning to the third chamber cleared.

You don't need to be quite this efficient. I played to the end from that point and had 3 and half spawns time left, so there's some room for error.

I knew there had to be a dirty trick - although I was already suspecting it would be like this from wallu's answer.

(And I'm sorry to say it, but I'm fresh outta mod points...)

On to level 2, then... :unsure

np: Yagya - Like The Noise Of Great Waters (Will I Dream During The Process?)

Oh, man! I still want to solve it myself (and haven't read any hints yet), but I just wanted to say I surely must be the least effective person in the world! After much work I managed to kill three roach queens before the time went out :~( :weep
Edit:
Oh man! I really must be stupid! There are two tricks you might do in this room, and I didn't do any of them. On the other hand that forced me to be extra efficient ;) This is a top highscore place I really don't know if I ought to be proud of...

Ok blondbeard, I give. What are the tricks? The demo seems to not be able to help me. Help please?

I was thinking if I should ask for a better and more efficient demo but then again, it would be pointless, because this is a horde room but with a limit. And I guess that it's not possible to be more efficient. Beethro's teacher is the addon that I saved for the last to play, due to of its infamous difficulty, but still I wasn't ready for it to be this frustratingly hard.

I really hope that the next levels are more puzzle oriented.
