The presence of four colours makes it easy to create special candies and cascades. However, it is not that useful as the board layout is rather restricted. Moreover, it is impossible to create colour bombs.
The player is required to earn at least 2,500 points per move for two stars and at least 3,500 points per move for three stars.
The mystery candies may help or harm the player in earning three stars. If colour bombs are obtained from mystery candies, they can be combined with candy bombs to drastically increase the amount of points earned.
With large cascades happening in quadrant levels, this level may freeze occasionally due to irregular candy drops, mainly caused by a blocker such as a special candy under marmalade or an icing square of any layer directly above or under a teleporter.
This will render an unfair unwinnable situation, and may only be resolved by failing or closing the window.
