A game involving the Turvy Pole, a tall pole in the center of the field with two scoring platforms.  When a tube is scored on one of the platforms, the weight of the tube will push the platform down, and the other will rise.


There is nothing here.

It’s interesting seeing a game concept that gets progressively harder for the team that’s losing, you’d get a lot of scorelines with this game that end up with teams that were slower to get started scoring next to nothing and the other team scoring loads, which could be a good thing to incentivise teams to build faster and more efficient robots, but it could be a bit demoralising for teams that have a robot that’s only a tiny bit slower than their opposing alliance to lose 150-0 or something :D. The animation itself is very clear and shows how the game’s played well, although it would be good to see a demo match or something so the other robots get used and to show a bit more into specific strategies that may be involved with playing the game. I’d also recommend rendering at a higher frame rate to make the animation as a whole look smoother (e.g. 0:25-0:27 shows noticeable jumps between adjacent frames) Good luck!
