The presence of six colours makes it hard to create special candies during regular moves.
The ingredients are worth 40,000 points. Hence, an additional 40,000 points for two stars and an additional 60,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 100.00% compared to its Reality counterpart which is the one star target score in this level.
The three star score requirement is increased by 66.67% compared to its Reality counterpart.
The player is required to earn an additional 1,160 points per move for two stars and an additional 1,720 points per move for three stars.
There are liquorice locks on the bottom of the board which require some moves to clear them. Despite this, not all the liquorice locks are required to be cleared as mainly those directly below the ingredients need to be cleared.
With respect to the two and three star target scores, 35 moves are insufficient to boost the score by a huge amount of points to meet those target scores.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colours on the moon scale, lasts for 1 move and occurs twice. This makes it much easier to create special candies. With the second point in consideration, this is essential.
Overall, the moon strucks may not be enough due to their short duration.
Once each moon struck ends, it can become harder to create special candies.
