When Madeline collects a strawberry in Celeste, text appears above her head to show it was worth 1000 points. (Most likely an homage to old arcade games).

Do these points do anything? Does it add to a score total?

Collecting a strawberry for 1000 points

1 Answer 1


There is no score and no purpose to the points per se. However, there is a related Easter egg and achievement: collecting multiple strawberries at once (by not standing on solid ground too long) leads to increasing point values much like stomping enemies in a Mario game, and if you can collect six strawberries at once, the sixth counts as a "1 UP" and grants the achievement.
