Well, we have plenty of experience making a racket with our robots -- how hard can it be to turn it around?

A few of the students on our team have a similar speculation that the object of the game will be to tear down a wall.

Stack Attack comes to mind... Field reset could have the wall up in 3 minutes, it took the robots <15 seconds to have most of it all over the floor. Anything standing upright after that--placed by human or by robot--was promptly sent flat for the next 2 minutes.

Since power up is a kind of throwback to old school video games, I was thinking (hoping) first would include elements from older frc games and then add the theme over top of that. I think it could be interesting.

This is a commonly discussed thing here on CD. FIRST often reuses specific components from past years games, and some argue it is cyclical. One of the best examples is 2011 which used inner-tubes in a very similar way to 2007, though this was FIRSTs intention as 2011 was the 20 year anniversary.

A throwback to an older FRC game could be very possible.

Everyone, yes, including 254, has room for improvement. They may be one of the winning-est teams, but I'm relatively certain they experienced their fair share of failure this year as well. 254 is just really good at knowing how to handle it, they won FOC after all.

Now think about it, many classic arcade video games were platformers. Now, what do all Platformers have? Water Levels.

WATER GAME CONFIRMED
What about the robots swimming in a pool of water like Mario?
