This room has been frustrating me for some time. It's obviously easy to clear two of the chambers with mimics, but the queens in the third chamber have bunched up too much to kill without using something as a wall. Given that the only suitable object at that point would be a roach, I likely need to let a spawn cycle commence. However, I am unable to find a way to kill all of the roaches as they pass while also putting myself in a position to sidle over that extra step. Any nudges would be appreciated.

This was once east in ddr in one of the levels.Just now it has 3 chambers. Mike, can you put a scroll in there and write:The 12 queen problem?

I don't take that as a given. As Freud said, sometimes a wall is just a wall.

Okay, I know this is an "easy" puzzle, but maybe my mind is to complicated to get the easy ones. The hints given above did not help me.

I cannot move at all, except in the one direction and I can't get to the third mimic in time to beat the roach queens to the corner. I cannot find any breakable walls. What obvious thing am I missing?

First, study krammer's hints again...what he said is what I would have said if I was trying to be obscure. Some further advice...

Edit: by the way, this was in response to someone who has since deleted their post, presumably because they solved it already. Oh well, I'll leave it up.

Game on,

OMFG, I can't believe it was that obvious.
