    Now I'm curious to know what the best solution for each robot is.
    I can get Yellow or Green there in 11, each using the other one as a doorstop in the lower-left corner, but I'm not putting a lot of effort into it.

    I am sure the other robots could be more efficient, but the symmetry of this one pleases me.

    Me and my two points still need to be added to the scoreboard.
    Vortex - Blue (J12 --> C8): 8 moves

    Green Right (E11)
    Green Down (E5)
    Blue Left (A12)
    Blue Down (A11)
    Blue Right (E11)
    Blue Down (E6)
    Blue Left (C6)
    Blue Up (C8)

    @BlueCyan - Isn't saying which bot has the best solution a bit of a spoiler? I'd stick all of them in one super-spoiler for security and a note outside of the spoiler that you've posted multiple solutions.

    1. Yellow left
    2. Yellow down
    3. Yellow right
    4. Green right
    5. Green down
    6. Green right
    7. Green down
    8. Green left
    9. Green down
    10. Green right
    11. Green up

    11 moves. Can't see a faster way to get yellow involved [in the corner] - was hoping there was a trick to get into the bottom corner more easily.

    Oh well.

    1. Blue left
    2. Green right
    3. Green down
    4. Blue down
    5. Blue right
    6. Blue down
    7. Blue left
    8. Blue up

    8 moves; final answer. :D

    Your round number made me panic by being less than the move count.
