The presence of six colours makes it hard to create special candies during regular moves. Moreover, its Reality counterpart has five colours for all the moves available. This makes it much harder to create special candies compared to its Reality counterpart.
The jellies are worth 32,000 points. Hence, an additional 48,000 points for two stars and an additional 68,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The two star score requirement is increased by 14.29% compared to its Reality counterpart.
The three star score requirement is increased by 25.00% compared to its Reality counterpart. Even worse, the extra colour and unstable moon scale makes it harder to reach.
The position of the jellies being at the corners makes it hard to create huge point cascades.
Despite the increase in jellies, they are on the top of the board which limits the potential of huge point cascades.
Even though there are no jellies under the blockers, they reduce available board for creation of special candies.
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, lasts for one move and occurs twice. This makes it much easier to create special candies. However, considering that its Reality counterpart has five colours for 20 moves, the moon struck duration is much too low to boost the score as only 10.00% of the Reality counterpart has fewer colours in the Dreamworld counterpart even if the board has four colours during moon struck. Moreover, 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.
