Help - I've got this far and have not the faintest idea what to do. The top snake kills itself in the first alcove and I know I need the second snake to help kill the single roach.

I can kill the single roach
I can kill the two roaches
I can remove all tar
I can kill both snakes

But I can't do it all together.

Any clues.

Cheers
Chris

Sorry Guys

I am making the following assumptions:-

Are these correct, if so I still cannot see a way to complete the room - or am I just old & thick??

Thanks Blondbeard - I should have seen that coming with the two roaches - you deserve my last Mod Points. BUT I cannot get to kill the last snake, it just goes round in circles.

Check Dolan42's first post. No snake manipulation required.

I don't know what other hints to give, but if you need a demo, please feel free to ask.

Yeah, I wasn't sure why that trapdoor area was there at all. I wonder whether your solution was the intended one.

Apologies in advance for being dense . . . The best I can do is a single monster left (in this case the last roach). I'd really like to do something more with the surviving snake, but I don't know what -

How bad am I missing the point?

Thanks -

Look at Dolan42's first post above.

I'm assuming your last roach is the one behind the door? And the serpent is still happily making laps?

Oh, boy. I was combining two separate hint threads into something that didn't work. How dumb, eh?

Thanks!
