If you played Backbeat and you’ve been wondering what Style Points (SP) are and what they give you, look no further. This article will shed some light on what SP is and how they are connected to tricks. 

Style Points is a reward you get for performing tricks. The more SP you have, the higher the level of your band is and the more instrument variants and effects are available for your characters to make your inner James Brown shine. If you want to unlock all cosmetics stuff in the game, you’ll need to accumulate 12,000 SP.

Here’s the list of all instruments and effects that will become available to you in Backbeat once you reach 12,000 mark.

Instruments Standard

And now, that you looked at the “goodies”, it’s time to see what tricks can net you SP points and how much they are worth.

Some tricks can be performed several times on one level, so you absolutely can and need to exploit this opportunity to rack up some sweet SP. The game has 13 main missions (that count for Style Points) and a bunch of side missions which is more than enough to get the necessary amount.
