The presence of five colours makes it easy to create special candies.
The ingredients are worth 20,000 points. Hence, a two star score is guaranteed and an additional 10,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The player is required to earn an additional 340 points per move for three stars.
The positions of the ingredient exits and the presence of blockers force the creation of special candies and their combinations to drop the ingredients. All these give the player plenty of points.
30 moves are limited in earning a huge amount of points due to sugar crush and the limiting of the number of special candies created via regular matches. However, this point is less critical due to the moon struck and the low three star target score.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colour on the left side of the moon scale, lasts for five moves and occurs twice. This makes it much easier to create special candies.
Even after the first moon struck ends, it is not much harder to create special candies.
