The presence of five colours makes it easy to create special candies. However, it can be a double edged sword as it can cause the ingredients to be dropped too quickly without sufficient points being earned.
The ingredients are worth 20,000 points. Hence, additional 180,000 points for two stars and additional 280,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The player is required to earn additional 4,500 points per move for two stars and an additional 7,000 points per move for three stars. Those amount are higher than the maximum amount of points a striped candy during sugar crush can provide which in this case is 3,540 points.
There are plenty of two layer icing and a cake bomb which makes it hard to create a colour bomb. Even though they are not hard to clear with five colours, it does not leave much moves left for creation of colour bombs via regular matching.
Despite the presence of five candy bombs, there are no more candy bombs being spawned which means that a minimum of 15,000 points can be earned easily.
Even if a colour bomb can be created during the first few moves and used on the colour of the candy matching any of the colours of the candy bomb, it does not provide that much points due to the limited amount of candies being cleared.
Clearing the cake bomb removes all the candies on the board including colour bombs and candy bombs, destroying any opportunities of creating colour bomb + candy bomb combinations which is the only way to provide a massive amount of points.
If there are fewer than 1 ingredients on the screen, then the board spawns up to 1 ingredient when possible.
↑2 ingredients × 10,000 points per ingredient = 20,000 points
↑180,000 points / 40 moves = 4,500 points per move
↑280,000 points / 40 moves = 7,000 points per move
↑3,000 points per striped candy + 540 points if the striped destroys nine candies
↑The amount of points earned by the striped candies during sugar crush may be higher or lower. If the striped candy causes cascades after detonation, the amount of points is increased. If the striped candy destroys a blocker or less than nine candies which is the greatest number of spaces in this board and does not cause cascades, the amount of points earned will be less than 3,540 points. For the former, a minimum of 960 points per striped candy for two stars and a minimum of 3,460 points per striped candy for three stars has be earned from cascades.
