Tiffi-alarm 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.
Please remove this template when certain levels are nerfed, which then lowers the episode's difficulty.

  • This is the eighth episode exclusive to HTML5 and the first time Benny appears on a HTML5-exclusive episode.
  • This was the first time an episode had been released two weeks early on Windows 10.
  • Before the removal of timed levels, this was the only episode to have all 5 level types and both types of mixed levels.
  • This episode shares its first word with Pumpkin Planetarium (with a different spelling) and its second word with Pudding Patch. However, those episodes were released after this one, so this is the third HTML5-exclusive episode to use two words that haven't been used before.
