POWER UP had alliances that were working to defeat the boss in order to escape! Robots collected Power Cubes and placed them on Plates to control Switches or the Scale. When the Scale or their Switch was tipped in their favor, it was considered owned by that Alliance. Alliances worked to have Ownership for as much time as possible. Robots could also deliver Power Cubes to their Human Players who placed them into the Vault earning Power Ups. Alliances used Power Ups to gain a temporary advantage. There were three Power Ups available to teams: Force, Boost, and Levitate. Force gave the alliance ownership of the Switch, Scale, or both for a small period of time, Boost doubled the rate points were earned for a period of time, and Levitate resulted in a free climb. At the end of the game robots climbed the Scale in order to be ready to Face The Boss.
