Checkpoint 1

Spin Docto Station begins with a launchpad right in front of Agent 8. This will take them to the main level. There is a platform with an Ink Switch which moves some barricades and a platform under the main one, pushing them onto it. Agent 8 should then climb a wall, leading to an area with three Sanitized Octotroopers. After this is a checkpoint.

Checkpoint 2

The second area consists of many floating platforms with an Ink Switch in the middle. The Switch will move the platforms to the center, where the player can climb them to get to the third area. There is a Sanitized Blobby Octotrooper, then a Sanitized Octotrooper, and later on another three Sanitized Octotroopers on the way.

Checkpoint 3

Area 3 has two platforms with Ink Switches. The platforms will move vertically when shot, but will also spin, so Agent 8 has to take care not to fall off. The second one has an Octotrooper on it.

Final checkpoint

The final checkpoint has Agent 8 free-falling to get to the goal. There are five Ink Switches in a row, vertically. These Ink Switches move the goal platform under Agent 8. However, the platform will slide away quickly, so they will have to hit the switches until the last possible moment as not to fall.

Translation notes

  1. A pun on "Choberiba" (very, very bad). It was a slang term in nineties Japanese.
  2. Comes from "een kind kan de was doen", a Dutch expression meaning "doing something very easily", and "een wasje draaien", a Dutch expression for "to do laundry in a washing machine", which is a pun on "draaien" (to spin).
  3. This is a reference to the Santa Barbara TV series which was popular in Russia, with the words Barbara and барбус barbus (barbus) combined into one.
  4. A reference to the Mexican series "El Chapulín Colorado" (The Red Grasshopper). One of the titular hero's catchphrases is "¡No contaban con mi astucia!" (They were not expecting my astuteness!).
