An overview of Crystals and the points they reward, from Sonic Runners.

Points are abstracted units in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They refer to the measuring system used for evaluating a player's performance during gameplay. Points are acquired by collecting items, defeating enemies and bosses, or by performing different actions. There are a multitude of different ways to collect points, with each game featuring different gimmicks. The total of all points are calculated in-game as the score. After reaching the goal of a level, all point counters are then aggregated to the total score.

A score system has been a part of the series since the beginning, with this being the original Sonic the Hedgehog, and virtually every game has followed suit.

Overview

Sonic defeating Badniks, displaying how points will multiply each time an enemy is destroyed in succession, from Sonic the Hedgehog (1991).

Throughout the Sonic the Hedgehog series, points have referred to an abstract quantity associated with the player. During gameplay, various actions can raise the number of points the player have. Such actions include collecting different items like Rings, hitting breakable objects, utilizing gimmicks like the Rainbow Rings, defeating enemies or bosses, or executing certain tricks like Trick Actions or Real-Time Interactions. Number notifications are usually seen on the screen afterwards, either popping out the collected item, destroyed target or close to the HUD. Earning a specific amount of points may grant the player extra lives or clear specific achievements/missions. In certain games, the player can multiply the points earned by hitting/defeating multiple enemies or breakable objects in a row. Providing multiple hits can as well result in a Combo which will grant more points the longer it last. In later games such as Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes and Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), the player can also earn variable trick points with classifications from events like defeating enemies consecutively or performing certain moves, such as the Light Speed Dash.

After completing a Zone, all HUD calculations are added to the total score, from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

Depending on the game, when the player reaches the end of a level, the end-of-level tally is split into different categories based on the HUD point counters and/or other gameplay elements. Like previously mentioned, the player can earn extra lives, Continues or other features while the acquired points are calculated during the aggregation of the total score. Evaluation-wise, Points are used as quantitative indicators of success in gameplay, and in most games, the quantity of points determines what rank the player will get at the end of a level. In games such as Sonic the Hedgehog (8-bit), the final score tally aggregates all total scores from each Act of the game (including the Special Bonuses for each completed Special Stage) after the player has cleared the whole game.

Certain parts of the games may operate with their own score systems, such as Special Stages, Bonus Stages or mini-games, where the player earns points in a similar fashion, usually from Ring bonuses. In Special Stages specifically, the scores earned here will be calculated into the total score after exiting one. Different multiplayer modes may also award the players with points for their respective scores, which are tallied up upon finishing the multiplayer modes and may affect the selection of the multiplayer mode's winner. Arcade games may also feature high score lists which players can get their name on by getting enough points after clearing the gameplay.

There exist other forms of score categories that serve different gameplay purposes. Experience Points can be obtained from certain accomplishment and can be used to evolve the playable characters, while Gravity Points in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity are stored in the GP Gauge and allow usage of Gravity Actions.

  • Time Score: There exists a score named the "Base Clear Score" for each Act which the game deducts a specific number of points (dubbed the "Deduction Score") per second from until the Act is cleared. When the player clears an Act, the game calculates the Time Score as follows: Time Score = Base Clear Score - [Deduction Score x Stage Clear Time (in seconds)]. Both the "Base Clear Score" and the "Deduction Score" changes according to the length category of the stage.[17]

Trivia

  • Although the Xbox Live Demo of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) gives points for using the Light Dash, this was not carried over to the final version.
    • Additionally, there is an unused sprite found inside the files of the final game that contain words for multiple set of points meant to be given to the player, along with scrapped ones, indicating the game was going to have a bonus points system similar to that of Sonic Adventure 2.

Notes

  1. Even though this Secret Bonus' icon states it gives 100 points, its real value is only 10 points each. The other Secret Bonus icons with 1000 and 10000 points each are accurate. This issue was fixed in the 2013 remaster (iOS/Android).
  2. When coming in contact with the group of Drop Targets, hitting the third and any other Drop Target on the group afterwards for the third time grants 500 points.
  3. Action Stages with E-102 Gamma have a timer counting down. Time Bonus is calculated based on remaining time after the player passes through the Action Stage. Big the Cat does not receive Time Bonuses in his Action Stages.
  4. The score multiplies as the player passes through multiple gates constantly.
  5. Egg Rocket Zone has a reversed calculating timer that is set to a five minute mark. This time limit appears three times in the Zone and will reset two times during the progression of the Zone. Despite this, the game calculates the Time Bonus like in previous Zones.
  6. The timer subtracts 80 points for every second used, from 1 minute and 31 seconds until 10 minutes and 25 seconds. However, if the player completes the stage in 1:30 or less, the player is awarded 50000 points.
  7. If a Stage is completed in over 10:25, no Time Bonus is awarded.
  8. 8.00 8.01 8.02 8.03 8.04 8.05 8.06 8.07 8.08 8.09 8.10 8.11 8.12 As the player builds up a Combo, the point multiplier will increase by one (x2, x3, and so on up to x9). Taking damage or missing a shot will reset the Combo.
  9. Slicers can activate self-destruction after they perform their attack pattern once. The player does not receive points if the Badnik does this.
  10. Badniks that get crushed by rolling snowballs in White Park Zone do not grant points.
  11. The Time Bonus is calculated based on the total time it took to clear the Special Stage.
  12. However, getting an Eggman bomb from the Combi Catcher afterwards will reset the total score back to zero.
