Three kids dawning the different colors red, blue, and purple compete in relatively cool-looking games to achieve as many points as they can. At the end of every episode, they climb a big fake mountain, braving tumbling rocks made out of styrofoam, sparkling glitter, shooting steam, and loud sounds while trying to hit the "Actuators" along their way to the summit.

The mountain is called the "AggroCrag" and was later made into the "MegaCrag" for Global GUTS.
