This seasons competition is Power Up. This game takes place in an "8 bit world", where the goal is to collect power up cubes and put them on a balance to gain possession and earn points with your alliance during the match. At the end of the match, the robots are to climb up to the top of a beam to gain even more points. Robots can also exchange the cubes with a human player, who puts the cubes in the vault. This gives the alliance additional points.
