The presence of five colours makes it easy to create special candies.
The jellies are worth 40,000 points. Hence, an additional 110,000 points for two stars and an additional 260,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 36.36% compared to its Reality counterpart.
The three star score requirement is increased by 100.00% compared to its Reality counterpart which is the two star target score in this level. This can make it hard to reach.
There are plenty of liquorice locks and icing, causing the player to spend a good number of moves to clear them.
The positions of the jellies make it hard to sustain huge point cascades.
The board is open with 81 spaces. Hence, it is easy to create special candies and cascades once most of the blockers are cleared.
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 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 and with the second point in consideration, this is essential. However, this can be negated if most of the blockers are not cleared before the first moon struck and most of the jellies would have been cleared before the second moon struck.
Overall, the moon strucks may not be enough due to their short duration.
Even after each moon struck ends, it is not much harder to create special candies. However, the blockers may negate this advantage.
