In Sonic Generations, you can find two types of springs through the Classic levels: red and yellow. Is there any difference between the two kinds of springs, or is it only to confuse innocent gamers?

Red springs propel you forward with more force than yellow springs do.

The Sonic Wikia notes:

Red ones propel Sonic to a higher elevation, while yellow ones only send Sonic a medium to low distance.

It's been this way as far back as I can remember.
