There are about a dozen URLs that all have the same guide that explains that to get to room 8, you have to throw an explospider at the "little shop of horrors" thing in the gap, and once that's been killed, use another to throw at the boulder across the gap.
I can kill the LSOH thing in the gap, but when I try to take out the boulder I run into a problem: You are supposed to jump across the gap holding the ticking explospider and then lob it at the rock. BUT every time I jump across the gap LINK DROPS THE BOMB.
And there's no other way to get farther in the game except through Room 8, so I have been stuck in the same spot for about a month...VERY FRUSTRATED.
This is a general cry for help. Some one tell me what to do, maybe even do one of those cool videos on YouTube (that helps a lot).
