Even though the presence of five colours should make it easy to create special candies, its Reality counterpart has four colours for all the moves available. Hence, it is harder to create special candies compared to its Reality counterpart.
The jellies are worth 74,000 points. Hence, an additional 276,000 points for two stars and an additional 296,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is decreased by 10.26% compared to its Reality counterpart.
The three star score requirement is decreased by 11.90% compared to its Reality counterpart. However, an extra colour and fewer jellies makes it harder even with 10 more moves compared to its Reality counterpart.
There are fewer jellies to sustain huge point cascades. Moreover, an extra colour makes it even harder to sustain them.
The positions of the liquorice locks make them hard to clear. To make matters worse, an extra colour makes it even harder to clear them.
The mystery candies may help or harm the player in earning three stars. If the mystery candies are used individually, they are not too useful in helping the player to earn three stars. If they are used simultaneously, they can cause huge point cascades which can Odus to fall over.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colour on the left side of the moon scale and lasts for 15 moves. This makes it much easier to create special candies. However, considering that its Reality counterpart has four colours for 30 moves, the moon struck duration is much too low to boost the score as only 50.00% of the Reality counterpart has four colours in the counterpart in Dreamworld. Moreover, most of the jellies have been cleared before the moon scale which decreases the effectiveness of the moon struck and lowering the possibility of huge point cascades.
Overall, the moon struck may not be enough due to the problems mentioned above.
Even after the moon struck ends, it is not much harder to create special candies. However, the extra colour, board layout, remaining blockers and insufficient jellies negate this advantage.
