Pop Star Station
Pop Star Station is a mission in the Octo Expansion.
When the player begins the stage, they find themselves on a small platform with a Launchpad. Launch Agent 8 to a cross-shaped rotating platform that slowly moves along a track, and reaches the first, but not the last, obstacle of the stage; an Octowasher. The player has to avoid it and splat three upcoming balloons which raises a wall and enter the second section.
The player has to splat seven balloons while avoiding another Octowasher to open the path for the third section.
Another seven balloons have to be splatted to create a path to successfully reach the fourth section.
The platform follows the track up while the player has to splat eight balloons, and another two balloons when the platform goes forward again while also avoiding another Octowasher. The player reaches the fifth and final section if done correctly.
Slowly move the platform to the last three balloons and by splatting them, the player clears this stage.
