What CAn They Do?

Flash can grab yellow crates called "Power Cubes" and place them onto a ground-level switch and a 4-to-6-foot tall balance scale. Flash can also drive autonomously to place a Power Cube in the switch, and climb the balance scale using a hook underneath the claw mechanism during the game's final moments.
