Marina's Hacks is a feature/store in Side Order which allows Agent 8 to modify the difficulty of the Spire of Order at the cost of Prlz to help them towards completing a run.

List of Hack costs

The main feature of Marina's Hacks is to provide permanent upgrades that can be toggled on and off freely. Dark cells indicate purchases that cannot be obtained.

Risky Rewards

Once bought and activated, Risky Rewards causes a modifier to be seen when selecting hacks. This starts at x3.0 when no other hacks are installed, and is reduced depending on the number of other hacks installed, down to a minimum of x1.1

At the end of a run with Risky Rewards active, after the points have been tallied, the final score gets modified based on the Risky Rewards modifier when it comes to determining Prlz gained - if the run fails or is given up, the Prlz modifier is instead x0.0 and no Prlz will be awarded.

Retry Run

After failing a run for the first time, Marina will start offering the ability to pay Prlz to retry a run which did not make it to the top, taking the player to the last floor reached on that run. Runs using Eight's Palette can not be selected to be retried. Completing a run continued by this hack will alter the splash on the top left of the victory card to use black ink with a repeating texture of Marina's Hack icon.

Skip Floor

When doing a run with Eight's Palette, a bonus hack which does not affect the number of color chip slots is enabled that allows for a floor to be skipped. The cost to use this depends on the current floor: Membuxs 100 for floors up to 9F, Membuxs 500 for floors between 11F and 19F, and Membuxs 1000 for floors between 21F and 29F. Note that boss floors can't be skipped.

An update from the World of Order!

Marina provides support to Agent 8's challenges against the Spire of Order with her hacking skills. She can add permanent upgrades, new abilities, & more to 8's attempts! Additional hacks will unlock as you progress up the Spire & spend Prlz.

— @SplatoonNA on Twitter[1]
The Floor Reset ability is unlocked via Marina's hacking. She uses her keyboard wizardry to change up the next 3 available floors.

Though it costs Membux to activate each time, it's a great way to avoid a difficult level or optimize the color chip reward for your Palette.

Hey, Eight, do you have a sec?
I've been running some scans. Somehow, Order jacked
up the threat level in the Spire as far as it'll go.
Why's it gotta go and do that? And what does it
mean for us?
Well, for one thing, the Spire's suddenly higher.
But that's not the worst part.
Run out of lives even once, and you'll get kicked out
of the Spire
. And that'll probably happen, since enemies
hurt more
OK, yeah, I'm seeing some challenges here.
That said... I built the Memverse to begin with. I don't
have to take this sitting down.
Now that I'm outside the Spire, I can hack the system,
overwrite the changes, and lower the difficulty!
Whoa, you can do all that?! Glad to have you back on
OUR side!
Thing is, I'll need PrlzsPrlz to get any hacking done.
But you should have some Prlz already, I think.
There you go! Those Prlz were generated when you
came out of the Spire.
Every time you leave, your color chips and
MembuxsMembux will automatically be converted into Prlz.
So like... we're probably gonna bite it in the Spire, but if
we kick some butt first, we get more Prlz?
And giving Prlz to Marina for hacks to make it easier
will help us next time. Even losing helps us win!
I like this plan!
Here are the settings I've figured out how to hack
so far. Want me to fix anything in your favor?
After the player exits the menu:
Even you'd have a hard time getting to the new top of
the spire, Eight. But my hacks should smooth the way.
That's the best I can do from here. It'll be up to you to
put a stop to Order!
One more thing.
Here, Eight. I have a palettePalette for you.
One of those things color chips go into? Didn't know you
had your own.
Setting this Palette to your drone — I mean, Pearl — will
let you use a new weapon.
I did some research, and this doesn't seem to be the
only other Palette in the Memverse.
My early scans of those lockers over there show signs
of other Palettes inside.
When you saved me, I found myself with some Keykeys
for those lockers. You should have them, Eight.
Oh, but you can't change Palettes while climbing the
. If you want to switch, make sure to press
before getting in the elevator.
Want me do some hacking?
Want to spend some Prlz on that?


  • Vuoi farmi hackerare qualcosa?
(Do you want me to hack something?)
  • Hackeriamo con le perle?
(Shall we hack with the Prlz?)
  • Uhm... Otto, non hai abbastanza perle!
(Um... Eight, you don't have enough Prlz!)


  • Purchasing every hack costs a total of Prlzs 10,353.
  • When entering the menu for Marina's Hacks, she opens up her laptop. If the player is fast enough, after closing the menu they can see that she is running the Unity-like program in order to make the edits to the Memverse as needed.
