Bumpin' 8-Ball Station is a mission in the Octo Expansion.


When the player begins the stage, they find themselves on a platform with a large square platform in front of them and an 8-ball bouncing off a Bounce Pad. Shoot the 8-ball and it bounces off and launches towards the player, which makes an Octotrooper spawn on a Bounce Pad to the right. Guide the 8-ball through this path made of Sponge Blocks and Bounce Pads to a sloped path with two more Octotroopers. The path eventually transitions into sloped Sponge Blocks with another two Octotroopers on a wall at the end of the path. It is best to splat these Octarians first as they can shrink the Sponge Blocks and make the 8-ball fall. Guide the 8-ball to the top to reach the second checkpoint.

Guide the 8-ball through a sloped-down path with Bounce Pads as walls on one side but with no railing on the other side. The path goes to the right, which spawns an Octopod when the player approaches it, while a turn to the left makes two Octotroopers spawn. The floor transitions to a Sponge Block floor again, so splat these Octarians first. The path goes to the left, right, left, and right again with only Bounce Pads acting as walls and Sponge Blocks acting as the floor. Carefully maneuver the 8-ball through to get to the third and last checkpoint.

Follow the path with three Squid Rings and a Ball Launcher at the end to launch the 8-ball, then use the Launchpad that spawns to launch Agent 8. The player lands in an area with only Bounce Pads as walls and many Octotroopers. While the 8-ball bounces out of control, the player has to splat all the Octarians to open a gate that leads to the goal.
