On mobile, you can quit the level until you get both candies at the top corners of the level the same colour as the colour that appears at the left side of moon scale. You have 1:25 chance of getting this combination.
However, you must break the locks first, since moon struck cannot go through locks, and you will still have colours which otherwise do not occur during moon struck.
Use colour bombs on the locked candies otherwise. You may even mix one with striped candy.
If you are using boosters, mixing jelly fish + any special candy will yield an instant win.
On the web version, if the candy on the left side of the moon scale is the same colour as both liquorice locks, moon struck will instantly beat the level for you. If the moon struck clears the jellies in the initial "zap", Odus will not return after you win, thus you will have a moon struck sugar crush.
There is a 1:25 chance of this occurring; you have 1:5 chance of having both liquorice locks of the same, and in turn you have a 1:5 chance of having the candy of the left side of the moon scale being the colour of the liquorice locks.
