Teams are stuck in an 8-bit video game. Using the yellow power cubes, the objective of the game is to have ownership of the switch and the scale for as much time as possible. During the game you can exchange power cubes for temporary power ups. The final objective is to climb the scale in order to face the boss.
Teams will compete in 135 second matches to shoot 2’ exercise balls into a certain goal. Goals are worth 5 points each when “hot”. There was a high goal over the driver station and low goals in each corner. Extra points were gained by getting an 'assist' when the ball was passed from one robot to another.
Teams will shoot preloaded disks into 3 different targets; Low, Medium, High. Robots can then climb for additional points in the last 30 seconds of the match by climbing their respective pyramids. The higher the robot climbed the more points the alliance received, so long the robot stayed their at the end of the match.
