It should also be noted that these are the only types of special candies. Combinations of the two are more helpful. All of these combinations are performed by moving one special candy onto the same tile as another special candy.
Balancing the moon scale is particularly important on this level. The moon struck bonus is key, because it removes one colour of candy from the board entirely. The reduced number of candy colours means it will be easier for players to form the special candies they need to complete the level and if the moon scale becomes too unbalanced Odus can fall off. This will cost you the level, so be careful.
