Here's one possible path through the COLONY. This is another of those UNTIMED levels (which we hate because there are no extra points to be had!) so you've got plenty of time (or at least until Windows crashes!). Make a mental note that there are many, many safe places to stand and wait on this level. The center of the 3 x 3 blocks (where the chips are located) is safe. The space between any two chambers is safe. Having stated that, it might help to know which room should be next so that you don't have to search and search for all the chips. This may not be the optimal path, but it will work. I am not giving individual steps, because you need to move into the center of each chamber carefully, following behind the creatures. They will continue in their little circles, totally oblivious to your presence as long as you do not step in front of them and try to interrupt.
Here's a working pattern from ROOM to ROOM: (Again, these are not individual keystrokes, but directions to the next chamber.)
LDRD, LLL, RRDL, DRDR, UUDD, LDR, DLLU, ULUU, LDDR, DDLULU, UUUR, URR, ULLL, DLUL, DDRL, DRDL, DRDU, LDD.
Remember that F3 pauses and unpauses while you recover from fuzzy vision or dizziness.
