Odus-alarm.png This episode is hell!

This episode is currently nearly impossible to beat without, or even with boosters. Most of the levels in this episode are very hard, extremely hard, or even nearly impossible to complete.
This is mostly caused by buffs, which makes the episode dependent on extremely insane luck to complete.
This episode is currently one of the hardest, if not the hardest episode in the game.

  • This is the first HTML5-exclusive episode with Ellen.
  • This is the first HTML5-exclusive episode with a space theme, though it doesn't take place in the depths of space, unlike previous episodes like Crunchy Comet or Nougat Nebula.
    • Had the trend of one episode a week continued, this episode would have been released almost exactly one year after Nougat Nebula, another episode with a space theme (or 52 weeks exactly, since 160 + 52 = 212).
  • As of now, liquorice shell has appeared in all three encasing blockers (marmalade, liquorice lock and sugar chest). Liquorice swirls have also appeared in all 5 types of sugar chests.
  • This episode shares its first word with Pumpking Patch (albeit with a different spelling for some reason).
