The moon struck may prevent 1-2 of the required colours from spawning for two moves. If red, blue or orange colour appears on the left side of the moon scale, 6 additional candies have to be collected in addition to the 3 candies the player has to collect two moves after the moon struck. Finally, if any colour appears on the left side of the moon scale after the second moon struck, the player only has fourteen moves to remove the remaining candies of that colour since that colour removed will not return for the remaining one move, making it impossible to win if the player does not finish the order when moon struck is in effect.
The orders are worth 24,000 points. Hence, an additional 1,000 points are required to earn one star.
