At least one cake bomb must be destroyed to allow the ingredients to fall, but doing so can tip over the moon scale. With five colours instead of six, it is easier to create the special candies to clear the cake bomb but can tilt the moon scale more easily due to the greater chance of having more candies matching the colours on the moon scale.
The presence of five colours makes it easy to create special candies. Moreover, its Reality counterpart has six colours for all the moves available. This makes it much easier to create special candies compared to its Reality counterpart.
The ingredients are worth 20,000 points. Hence, an additional 35,000 points for two stars and an additional 55,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
With the same number of moves and with the same two and three star target scores as its Reality counterpart, they are not much difficult to reach.
The player is required to earn an additional 700 points per move for two stars and an additional 1,100 points per move for three stars.
The lower halves of the cake bomb can only be cleared by using special candies because they are not connected to any candies. Their creation gives plenty of points.
Clearing the cake bomb instantly drops the ingredients. However, it removes all candies including colour bombs. The latter point is less critical if the player has sufficient amount of remaining moves.
Once the first cake is cleared, it is much easier to clear the other cake bombs.
Moon struck removes candies matching the colour on the left side of the moon scale, lasts for three moves and occurs twice. This makes it much easier to create special candies.
Even after each moon struck ends, it is not much harder to create special candies.
