FIRST Power Up

Collect the Power Cubes, Own Your Territory, Face The Boss, and Get Ready to ‘Play For Real’!

FIRST Power Up, the 2018 FIRST Robotics Competition game, finds teams trapped in an 8bit video game! Teams must use power cubes to defeat the boss.

Each three-team alliance has three ways to help defeat the boss:

1. Owning the Scale or their Switch. Ownership occurs when the scale or alliance’s switch is tipped in their favor. Robots collect and deliver power cubes to gain ownership.

2. Playing Power Ups. Alliances exchange power cubes for power ups. Power ups provide a timed advantage during the match. There are three power ups that can be played: Force, Boost, and Levitate.

3. Climbing the Scale Tower. Robots work together to climb the scale tower to face the boss.
