The presence of six colours make it hards to create special candies during regular moves.
The jellies are worth 20,000 points. Hence, Hence, an additional 35,000 points for two stars and an additional 45,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 57.14% compared to its counterpart in Reality.
The three star score requirement is increased by 44.44% compared to its counterpart in Reality. This can make it hard to reach.
The regular icing are hard to clear with six colours and while they are being cleared, the chocolate will spread and may reduce available board space.
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. They can be used to clear the blockers though.
The moon scale is unstable, making the activation of special candy combinations and the use of huge cascades risky during regular moves.
With respect to the two and three star target scores, 20 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 and lasts for 1 move. This makes it much easier to create special candies. However, special candies can only be activated during moon struck as any special candies created during moon struck may cause Odus to fall over if they are activated during regular moves.
Overall, the moon struck may not be enough due to its short duration.
Once the moon struck ends, it can become harder to create special candies. Moreover, the unstable moon scale makes it even harder to create special candies without dangerously tilting the moon scale.
