VRC Game Design Animation Challenge
Create an animated video that shows and explains a new VEX Robotics Competition game.
Team 7800 (Mechanical Magpies) is a high-school robotics team from St. Colman's Community College. We designed this game animation using Adobe Flash. We give students opportunities to experience real-world engineering through competitive robotics and work to spread appreciation of STEM in our community. This is our submission for the VEX® Game Design Animation Challenge.
Welcome to the Patriot Robotics submission for the Vex 2016 Animation Challenge, this year’s game, Tipping point. Tipping Point is played on a 12-foot by 12-foot field made up of 36 foam tiles that are 2 feet by 2 feet. There are 6 towers on the field, 4 tall towers and 2 short towers. Each team has 2 tall towers and one short tower. Spread out on set positions on the field are 18 half cubes, which are 4” by 4”, alliances also get 10 preloads. The goal of tipping point is to fit as many of these half cubes in your team’s towers as possible. This complements...
Team 5225A, the Pilons, presents Prime Pool, an action-packed game challenging your math skills. There are numerous billiard balls scattered among the field and it’s up to the alliances to score them in the pillars. However, this is not easily done without the knowledge of prime numbers. The bigger your prime number is, the higher your score is! But be cautious, for this is where the opportunity for de-scoring lies. Teams can ruin their opponent’s prime number calculations by adding an extra ball to their opponent’s pillars. The team that scores the most points wins. Our...
The most complex, yet the most challenging. This vex game requires knowledge of where to apply force, heavy amounts of multiplication, and endless strategies. Will you win Excelence award at this nightmare of a challenge? Or will Cops and Robbers pickpocket all of your money?

VEX Robotics Game Animation Challenge Submission game ‘Opposing Forces’ presented by Team 985, Mary Our Queen Robotics from Omaha, Nebraska. ‘Opposing Forces’ highlights Newton’s Three Laws of Motion in action. Newton’s Laws of Motion form the basis for how objects react and move after forces are applied to them.
Our new vex competition idea is a mixture of the past two vex challenges, it mixes the element of picking up the balls and stacking them, like the 2014-2015 competition, in containers, it also uses elements of the 2015-2016 with using the balls. We think this would be a good competition as it would be a great chance to think in different ways and create better robots to achieve these targets.
