Chinese localisation for numbers


Hi folks,

A quick question about localisation into Chinese. When writing numbers (like a player’s score), would it be more natural to show the western-style numbers (45) or the Chinese style numbers (四十五)?

My apps are quiz/trivia games, and scoring is an important part of them (screenshot attached). As a native Chinese speaker, which style would you expect to see?

Thanks for your help,

For anyone else who is interested, the answer is that the 012345 style numbers are preferred.
