Checkpoint 1

When the player begins the stage, their Inkjet is immediately activated and lasts until the Timer runs out. The player then starts on a platform that eventually slopes down. Octomissiles are launched at the bottom and travel along the slope. The player can collect a Power Egg container along a moving wall while traveling down, as well as one in front of the Octomissile launchers. Reaching the end of the slope activates the second checkpoint and adds thirty seconds to the clock.

Checkpoint 2

Follow the path to a platform with two Octotroopers, two crates, and a bumper on it and an Ink Switch along the wall of the platform. Activating the Ink Switch creates a platform to the other side with the third checkpoint.

Checkpoint 3

With another thirty seconds added to the clock, the player enters an area similar to the first one; a downhill slope, but instead of having Octomissile launchers, there are two Octozeppelin launchers. Along the way, there is another crate to destroy, a Power Egg container to collect, and an Octotrooper to avoid. At the bottom, a Grapplink behind a stack of crates can be reached, taking the player to a platform with the fourth checkpoint.

Checkpoint 4

Another Grapplink takes the player to the next platform, and by timing it right, they can go through a Squid Ring. The platform has two Octotroopers and some Ink Switches nearby which move the platform up. Go over the wall to follow the path with two Squid Rings and avoid oncoming Octozeppelins to reach the fifth and final checkpoint, granting the player sixty extra seconds on the clock.

Final Checkpoint

After this point, the path consists of Octozeppelins being fired towards the player and Ink Switches that move platforms to make a way forward. On the way, the player encounters an Octotrooper and Octocopters and more Power Egg containers can be collected. The station's goal is reached by using a Grapplink.

Enemies and Mechanics



OE Icon CQ Cumber.png C.Q. Cumber's Quotes

Please shoot down any Octomissiles that get in your way.
Keep in mind that Octozeppelins have a weak spot on top, so shoot them there.
You can of course press B while using the Inkjet to float a bit.
And be sure to use those ink switches and Grapplinks as best you can.

That's it!
Simply dashing!
Grapplink ahoy!

OE Icon Marina.png Marina's Quotes

Remember—the Inkjet needs solid ground beneath it to function properly!
Shoot the tentacles on top of the Octozeppelins to take 'em out!
Goal spotted!

Translation notes

  1. "Licht" means "light" both as in brightness and as in size.
  2. 2.0 2.1 This is a reference to the saying "De noche, todos los gatos son pardos" ("At night, all cats are brown"), meaning it's easy to mistake one for another in the dark.
