While most people head straight online and get stuck into the grind when it comes to multiplayer-centric shooters, Splatoon 2's single-player campaign was a very intriguing experience not to be missed, despite perhaps being too far-removed and short-lived, as Cubed3 noted in the original review. Thankfully, where many developers would choose to focus on the central online multiplayer experience alone, Nintendo has injected even more single-player content into Splatoon 2. The Octo Expansion is a £17.99 downloadable, consisting of eighty challenges that will comprehensively test the player's skill and patience. These modular scenarios are best compared with the test chambers from Portal, the Metal Gear Solid VR Missions, and the shrines from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild. New ideas are constantly being introduced and are so robustly examined, it reveals the true depth of Splatoon's gameplay mechanics to those who endure this DLC's uncharacteristically steep difficulty gradient.
The next area is large and may look a little confusing. Small ramps lead to funnels that end up on slanted platforms with blocks that will burst out forcefully. Head up onto the platform on the right next to the first funnel, and place a Sphere Bomb into the funnel, which will place it on a ramp that gets shotput over to the other side - on top of a cracked stone blocking a ladder you can reveal by detonation. 2b1af7f3a8
