The main challenge in 2018's game is ownership of the scale or the two switches. Ownership occurs when the scale or alliance’s switch is tipped in their favor (1 point per second of ownership). Robots collect and deliver power cubes to gain ownership. Alliances can exchange power cubes for power ups (5 points for each cube placed in the vault). There are three power ups that can be played: Force, Boost, and Levitate. At the end the robots have to climb the scale to defeat the boss (30 points for each robot, 5 points for parking).
