The candy bombs can pose a problem. It may not be easy to match them in time, especially with six colours.
The bombs spawn into a partly isolated column, which significantly increases the difficulty of clearing them.
The ingredients spawn into two peninsulas only three columns wide. This increases the difficulty of making direct matches, and reduces the player's ability to create special candies, vertical striped candies in particular.
Two coconut wheels are provided, which may be used either to clear an ingredient or to help clear the bombs.
The moon strucks can help you drop the ingredients.
The ingredients are worth 60,000 points. Hence, an additional 15,000 points is required to earn one star.
