The board is separated into two sections: the upper section has three parts with three colour bombs in marmalade, while the lower section is the main area in which moves can be made.
Candies do not spawn in the top section. This means that if the candy beside the colour bombs is cleared through striped candies or another colour bomb, a vertical striped candy is then needed to activate the isolated colour bomb. If that is done during regular moves, it may dangerously tilt the moon scale as there is no control on what colour the colour bomb removes.
Detonating six colour bombs is very hard, as you will most likely need to use vertical striped candies to set off the colour bombs in the upper section of the board.
3 colour bombs are given to you but you need 6 to finish the level. You need to create 3 more colour bombs.
Moon struck only lasts for 3 moves, and is only activated right before the end of the level, so its usefulness is limited.
If the candy beside the provided colour bombs is on the moon scale, it might not be safe to use them.
The order is worth 6,000 points. Hence, an additional 64,000 points is required to earn one star.
