Gameplay

Hero Mode incorporates various puzzle mechanics and 3D-platforming elements. Gameplay has been compared to Turf War and Super Mario Galaxy, in the sense that it sees players splattering Ink to defeat enemies, transforming into squids, and traversing floating platforms. Your only available weapon in Hero Mode is the Hero Shot Replica. There are multiple different tools or Mechanics that make an appearance in the Singleplayer campaign.
