The presence of six colours makes it hard to create special candies during regular moves.
The jellies are worth 39,000 points. Hence, an additional 131,000 points for two stars and an additional 171,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 142.86% compared to its Reality counterpart.
The three star score requirement is increased by 110.00% compared to its Reality counterpart. This can make it hard to reach.
The candies do not fill the entire board at the start of the game. This can result in the clearing of blockers or the creation of special candies or both, if the player is lucky. All these can result in a point boost.
The player earns more points for combining a colour bomb with a colour that cover several single jellies than the one on mobile devices.
With respect to the two and three star target scores, 30 moves are insufficient to boost the score by a huge amount of points to meet those target scores.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colours on the moon scale and lasts for 5 moves. This makes it much easier to create special candies. With the second point in consideration, this is essential.
Once the moon struck ends, it can become harder to create special candies.
