Points (Score) is a minor gameplay element in Riviera: The Promised Land. When something is accomplished, big or small, the player is awarded a fixed amount of points, which is added to their score sum for the current stage. These points have nothing to do with the Ranking system, and really doesn't have any positive or adverse effects on the playthrough. Quite literally the score is there for no reason, but adds just a little extra zest to the gameplay if the player likes to hoard points.
