Bumping Fight

Two or more robots compete in a head-to-head match following the basic rules of traditional sumo matches. Each Vortex will keep rotating and dart forward when button is pressed. The sole purpose is a pushing match between players to force others out of the arena, and the last one who stays in the arena will be the winner. The fun really begins in the chaos mode where players can choose to fight in alliance or solo.
