The presence six colours makes it hard to create special candies.
The ingredients are worth 40,000 points. Hence, an additional 60,000 points for two stars and an additional 90,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 25.00% compared to its Reality counterpart.
The three star score requirement is increased by 8.33% compared to its Reality counterpart. Even worse, the unstable moon scale makes it harder to reach.
The player is required to earn an additional 1,500 points per move for two stars and an additional 2,250 points per move for three stars.
The regular icing block the ingredients, once those are cleared, the chocolate will spread to reduce available board. Even though not all of the regular icing need to be cleared, the chocolate which will spread is hard to clear with six colours.
There are no additional blockers and an open board. The presence of six colours and unstable moon scale negate this advantage.
The moon scale is unstable, making the activation of special candy combinations and the use of huge cascades risky during regular moves.
Given the limited prospects of earning plenty of points outside sugar crush, it is essential that the player completes this level in as few moves as possible.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colours on the moon scale, lasts for one move and occurs twice. 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 strucks may not be enough due to their short duration.
Once the first 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.
