The presence of six colours makes it hard to create special candies during regular moves.
The jellies are worth 32,000 points. Hence, an additional 68,000 points for two stars and an additional 88,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
Since the double jellies are isolated, it is hard to create huge point cascades.
The liquorice swirls are on the double jellies and are isolated, forcing the creation of special candies to clear them. This will give plenty of points.
Clearing the liquorice swirls will dispense candy bombs, giving the player many opportunities to create colour bomb + candy bomb combinations. However, liquorice swirls can be dispensed, limiting that effect.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colours on the moon scale, lasts for five moves and occurs twice. This makes it much easier to create special candies. However, the liquorice swirls may negate this advantage.
Once the first moon struck ends, it can become harder to create special candies.
