The presence of five colours makes it easy to create special candies and is essential as special candies or their combinations must be used to clear the middle jelly.
The jellies are worth 110,000 points. Hence, an additional 80,000 points for two stars and an additional 130,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 8.57%  compared to its Reality counterpart.
The three star score requirement is decreased by 4.00%  compared to its Reality counterpart. However, the relatively unstable moon scale can make the activation of special candy combinations and the use of huge cascades slightly risky during regular moves, slightly increasing the difficulty of reaching the score.
There are plenty of double jellies to sustain huge point cascades.
The liquorice locks are not that much of a threat as they do not have any jellies under them.
The jelly at the centre forces the creation of special candies to clear it which in turn gives plenty of points.
30 moves are limited in earning a huge amount of points due to sugar crush and the limiting of the number of special candies created via regular matches. However, this point is less critical due to the first and fifth points.
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.
Even after the first moon struck ends, it is not much harder to create special candies. However, the relatively unstable moon scale may negate this advantage.
