Moon struck removes two colours, occurs five times and each lasting five moves except for the last moon struck, making it easier to create special candies.
Like its counterpart in Reality, the wrapped candies at the lower corners require colour bombs or special candy combinations to activate them during regular moves. Moon struck can remove those wrapped candies. However, it can cause the unused colour bombs to slide to those squares and render them almost useless (they can be activated by special candy combinations).
The presence of six colours will cause many moves to be spent creating the special candies required during regular moves. However, this point is less critical due to the huge amount of moves, low two and three star target scores and moon strucks.
The order is worth 30,000 points. Hence, an additional 25,000 points for two stars and an additional 40,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
Even though there are 5 fewer moves, the moon strucks make it easier to earn two and three stars.
The two-layered icing are the only problem because they reduce available. Since it only takes five moves to fill up the moon scale, they are not a threat.
Once the two layer icing are cleared, it is much easier to create special candies.
Moon struck removes candies matching both the colours on the moon scale, lasts for five moves and occurs five times. This makes it much easier to create special candies.
Once each moon struck ends, it can become harder to create special candies. However, the player will have earned points equal to or over the three star target score by the end of the third moon struck.
