Even though the presence of five colours should make it easy to create special candies, the board is quite restrictive, making it hard. Also, its Reality counterpart only has four colours for all the moves available. Hence, it is harder to create special candies compared to its Reality counterpart.
The ingredients are worth 40,000 points. Hence, an additional 25,000 points for two stars and an additional 40,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 30.00% compared to its Reality counterpart.
The three star score requirement is increased by 6.66% compared to its Reality counterpart. Even though this increase is much less compared to the levels before this, an extra colour and the unstable moon scale magnify this problem.
The player is required to earn an additional 1,250 points per move for two stars and an additional 2,000 points per move for three stars. Even though they are lower than its Reality counterpart at 1,500 and 2,750 points for two and three stars respectively, the board layout and the unstable moon scale make it harder to create special candies or drop the ingredients quickly.
An extra colour makes it difficult to create colour bombs. Moreover, the moon scale is unstable at only seven candies of imbalance, making it extremely difficult to use colour bombs without causing Odus to fall off.
With respect to the two and three star target scores, an extra colour and the unstable moon scale, 20 moves are insufficient to boost the score by a huge amount of points to meet those target scores.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colour on the left side of the moon scale, lasts for 1 move and occurs twice. This makes it much easier to create special candies. However, considering that its Reality counterpart has four colours for 20 moves, the moon struck duration is much too low to boost the score as only 10.00% of the Reality counterpart has four colours in the Dreamworld counterpart. Moreover, special candies can only be activated during moon struck as any special candies created during moon struck may cause Odus to fall over if they are activated during regular moves.
Overall, the moon strucks may not be enough due to their short duration.
Even after the first moon struck ends, it is not much harder to create special candies. However, the unstable moon scale negates this advantage.
