Reality 165 Background
This episode contains levels 2451-2465.

It's almost impossible to have an episode as hard as this. Popsicle Plateau broke every record in terms of difficulty, to the point where it makes Luscious Lane look easy. Like the previous episode, it has a mean above 7, but this episode is even harder than that, with an unimaginable, nightmarish mean of 7.6. Also, like the previous episode, every level has a difficulty of at least very hard, except for one level, which is rated hard: 2451. Overall, Popsicle Plateau is the hardest episode in the game. Another notable thing is that it contains six extremely hard levels: 2452, 2453, 2456, 2460, 2462 and 2463. It also contains two nearly impossible levels: 2454 and 2455, the rest of the levels are rated very hard. Many players quit playing after encountering this episode.
