based on the theme it would be "Power Up", as in collecting a object that would enhance function.
Well, game titles have certainly included wordplay/puns/multiple-meanings in the past. It's possible that the title refers to all of (1) Powering on electronics in some sense, (2) Collecting items to get "more powerful" in some sense, and (3) Powering oneself "upward" via ramp/stairs/etc in some sense.

However, I find it much more likely that any sort of powering on in sense (1) I just gave would be via closing a switch already on the field similar to the Steamworks climbing touchpad, not any attempt to have robots put 12V across two field components somehow.
