In "Modern" Octopus the deep-sea diver controlled by the player is replaced with Mario, while Peach stays on the boat. At 200, 500 and 700 points a Lakitu comes in and drops a 1-Up Heart that must be catched to have a miss removed.

The "Modern" version of Octopus is the same that was featured in Game & Watch Gallery only with improved graphics and some cosmetic changes, but all Mario references are still there. Mario's diving suit was changed to a bubble helmet, so that his face can always be seen.
