The moon scale is highly unstable, especially for a level with limited space at the beginning which also makes cascades important, but they can be deadly on this level if not controlled.
Also moon struck comes almost at the very end and lasts for a mere turn, so it is not powerful. Furthermore, it will prevent the colour on the left side of the moon scale from spawning.
You may be forced to make matches that cause Odus to fall down, which fails the level.
Should such a scenario happens, five additional candies have to be collected in addition to the three candies the player has to collect two moves after the moon struck,.
The arrangement of icing are different to its counterpart in Reality with single-layered icing at the centre instead of two and three-layered icing. However, the lower corners have three-layered icing instead of two.
While taking care of the moon scale, clear as many candies as possible so as to collect enough candies before a required colour get removed by moon struck.
Do not start playing the level if red, orange, or blue are on the left side of the moon scale. This guarantees that the moon struck will remove one of your required colours. Only play the level if green or yellow is on the left side. However, this strategy only works on mobile devices.
