This game looks a bit like a harder variant of Nothing but Net in terms of the robots needing to throw objects into targets, except with this game, even though there are more targets, the targets are more difficult to hit as they all have flat openings which require the objects to enter more vertically than in Nothing but Net, which in my opinion is better than NbN because it gives much more variety with the multiple targets. The animation itself though doesn’t really live up to the potential of the game you’ve designed, because it would look great to see 3D robots shooting at the targets and you could get some really nice physics simulations in there showing a match happening using the 3D field that you’ve shown at the end of the video. Also, there a few spelling mistakes on the Autonomous slide which let the animation down a bit. Overall, I think if you’d used more professional and more open video editing software which forces you to customise the animation for yourself more (e.g. Blender VSE, Premiere Pro, Final Cut etc. rather than, then the animation could’ve represented the game design a lot better. Good luck!
