The presence of six colours makes it hard to create special candies during regular moves.
The jellies are worth 8,000 points. Hence, an additional 52,000 points for two stars and an additional 92,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
Even with the same number of moves and with the same two and three star score requirements as its Reality counterpart, the extra columns of chocolate and the unstable moon scale can make it hard to reach.
The amount and position of the jellies makes it almost impossible to sustain huge point cascades.
Once the liquorice locks are cleared, the chocolate will spread to the main board, making it even harder to clear the chocolates and jellies.
The moon scale is unstable, making the activation of special candy combinations and the use of huge cascades risky during regular moves.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colours on the moon scale and lasts for 2 moves. This makes it much easier to create special candies. With the second point in consideration, this is essential.
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.
