Players are divided into two teams. The goal of the game is to recolour the floor tiles for your team. Only players that are carrying batteries can recolour tiles. The team that has recoloured the least amount of tiles at the end of 1:40 (1:30 in Squads modes) will be eliminated.
There are not enough batteries for each team, meaning some players will have to try stealing batteries from the opposing team.
If both teams are tied as the timer runs out, 10 extra seconds will be added. If after 10 seconds there is still a tie, 10 more seconds are added and this repeats until one team has the outright lowest score.
Such cases are incredibly rare due to how fast tiles are recoloured, but they can still happen.
For Squads modes, in an extremely contrived scenario, if both squads are still tied, the round will end after 4 minutes (15 overtimes) and both teams will be awarded the win. It is unclear what will happen in a normal solo show.
As of 13 May 2021, the following variants may occur:
- The force-fields and their respective buttons that the connect central upper area to each team's starting point may be replaced by blizzard fans.
- The central upper area may be surrounded on all four sides by light beams that move up and down.
- The central upper area may feature a Rotating Beam.
- Four Slingus Flinguses can be present at the central upper area
- The gravity zones and their respective buttons may be replaced by slingus flinguses (one for each button, two for each gravity zone, for a total of six).
- Upward facing Blizzard Fans may replace Gravity Zones. (Blizzard Fans will activate with the Buttons)
- 2 Force-Fields may replace Gravity Zones. They allow you to walk to the central upper area.(Force-Fields will activate with the Buttons)
Walking on the seams
By positioning yourself just right so you are constantly walking exactly between two tiles, it is possible to tag both at the same time, increasing the amount of points you give to your team (and take from the enemy's)
If you have a battery, a good strategy is to follow another player with a battery (provided they are on the other team). This prevents them from gaining too many points for their team.
Dealing with Grabbers
Since not every player will have a battery, it's likely that a player from the other team will try to grab you to steal your battery. In a situation where you are being grabbed, it's usually best to let go of your battery until the other player stops grabbing you. This predictably plops the battery directly in front of you, making it easier to retrieve once the other player lets go.
