The presence of six colours makes it hard to create special candies during regular moves.
The jellies are worth 58,000 points. Hence, an additional 102,000 points for two stars and an additional 152,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 77.78% compared to its Reality counterpart.
The three star score requirement is increased by 40.00% compared to its Reality counterpart. This can make it hard to reach.
There are plenty of liquorice locks which are hard to clear with six colours. Once they are cleared though, there should be more available space to create special candies.
The board is open with 81 spaces. However, individual special candies except colour bombs are mostly useless if they are not within range of the jellies. Even special candy combinations can be useless if they are not within range of the jellies especially the ones at the corners.
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 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 struck may not be enough due to its short duration.
Once the first moon struck ends, it can become harder to create special candies.
