Crystals in Sonic Runners

An overview of Crystals and the points they reward in 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 the gameplay. Points are acquired by collecting items, defeating enemies and bosses or performing different actions or other ways. 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.

The first game in the franchise to demonstrate the score system is Sonic the Hedgehog (1991), with each game in the series having different ways to earn points.

Overview

Score Increases!

Sonic defeating Badniks. Points will multiply each time a Badniks gets destroyed in succession.

Throughout the Sonic the Hedgehog video game 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 quick time events. 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.

S2 Perfect Bonus

After completing a Zone, all HUD calculations are added to the total score.

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.

  • Crystals: Gathering Crystals grants varying amounts of points depending on the Crystal's size and color. Regardless of size, blue crystals give the least points, green crystals give more points, and red crystals give the most points.
  • Animals: Grabbing the Animals that come out of badniks will grant the player varying amounts of points. Certain character types such as the Rose and Wild Type increase the amount of points collecting Animals give.
  • Distance: Points are granted for each meter travelled. Certain character types, such as the Hero and Wild Type, increase the amount of points earned for covering more distance.

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. Only on the REV01 version of the game. This commonly includes the Japanese release, as well as the later North American and European releases.
  2. Even though this Bonus Point's icon states it gives 100 points, its real value is only 10 points each. The other Bonus Points marked with 1000 and 10000 points each are accurate.
  3. 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.
