There are only 18 moves to clear the jelly, and the player faces 6 colours before moon struck.
Odus does not balance well on the Moon Scale; should one match be made with a colour that the player must balance, (s)he may run the risk of tipping the Moon Scale too soon or at worst, causing Odus to fall off and end the game.
The locked candies will block the flow of candies to the left until they are cleared.
Released the locked candies as soon as possible to allow candies to flow to the left side.
With a short Moon Struck, it is mostly about luck if it will clear most of the jellies for you. Otherwise, the Moon Scale is so sensitive that it discourages a player from making large combos to finish the level.
