O.R.C.A. describing the stage

Splat You On The Flip Side is the 8th level in Splatoon 3's story mode, Return of the Mammalians.


To get to the goal the player will have to fight numerous enemies. The Octarians the player will be battling will be on sections of the platforms that are upside down, concealing them. These sections will flip over, revealing the enemies, when the player gets close to them.


Just like the previous level, it will be a short walk. This time, you can just get through without Fuzzy Ooze. But it would still be there, so the pathway is very narrow.


Note: Due to the level having no fee, you may retry from checkpoints as many times as you want, even if you lose all your lives.

Checkpoint 1

Agent 3 will start the level with a downward slope. They will see a few Blobby Octotroopers and Agent 3 is supposed to splat them. There will be a platform that rotates quickly to reveal a Blobby Octotrooper and splat them. Another platform rotates to reveal 3 more of them. After they splat the last one, Agent 3 will be given some armor and continue.

Checkpoint 2

The player will continue to reveal some more platforms of Blobby Octotroopers that can be used as stepping stones after splatted. They will find 2 crates with Power Eggs and a canned special with a Trizooka. When the player enters the room, they will encounter a few more platforms rotate with even more Blobby Octotroopers. The player can either splat them manually (leaving them vulnerable) or use the Trizooka by pressing to defeat them. Defeating them will open the door and out of the room into the next checkpoint.

Checkpoint 3

The player has to defeat more Blobby Octotroopers when progressing. There is a box of crates that is surrounded by Octotroopers. It is mostly the same. After this, the player has to splat the last few Blobby Octotroopers and reach the goal.
