Technical issues

Symptomatic of early seventh generation console games, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions is only set up for HDTV, leaving the image on standard-definition TVs very dark and unsatisfactory for gameplay. As a result, Ubisoft recommended fans buy the Xbox, PlayStation 2 Gamecube, Windows or Wii versions until a fix for the problem was produced.  The Xbox and PlayStation 2 versions backwards compatible with the PlayStation 3 but not the Xbox 360. In June 2019, Microsoft and Sony added the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and 2 versions to the Xbox One backwards compatible library and PlayStation Now services.


Splatoon's Gameplay looked like Robots video game and Ice age 2 the meltdown video game but with Inklings and Octolings, Some of the inklings or Octolings gameplay has an Ability to use Scrap-gun to shoot over Octo-Emma's Security Gaurds and others, there was 17 levels in the game.
