Nostalgia incarnated

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie is a very nostalgic game for probably a lot of people out there who liked SpongeBob SquarePants. You play as SpongeBob through the story of the film and if you were a kid when this came out, you’ve probably played this and loved it, if not, where were you?! It was amazing!

Simply but still pretty sponge

The plot is a very simple one but before reading there are some spoilers so be prepared for spoilers you have been warned… Plankton has stolen the crown of Neptune, the King of the Sea and SpongeBob and Patrick are tasked to bring the crown back to Neptune because Neptune blamed Mr Krabs and froze him as punishment. So, to save Mr Krabs, they must retrieve the crown from Shell City where Plankton has sold the crown to the highest bidder. It’s a simple story but it adapted from a kid’s movie so don’t expect anything ground-breaking for a storyline.

Who cares its SpongeBob SquarePants!

The graphics in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie remind me of other film video game adaptations like The Incredibles and Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue which was made by THQ Studios the same studio that made this. It's very basic but you are playing as two very iconic cartoon characters so that mostly makes up for it to a certain degree.

Simple as a starfish

The gameplay is very simple, you move around an area, you fight a villain with a spatula and your collection of Goofy Goober Tokens which can be used to buy new power-ups and moves. If the player loses, they simply just go back to the last objective. There’s also a couple of parts through The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game where you get to drive the Patty Wagon around different areas usually trying to catch something. These parts are low key the best parts in the SpongeBob SquarePants movie game as its just pure fun and that’s what this game really is about, nothing special behind it, just some good old fun!

Maybe more sponge than pants

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie isn’t anything out the box. It’s a simple game that’s not made to break any limits, it’s made for fun and that’s really it. There are no massively hard parts to the game, there’s a lot of nostalgia for the older player and for the younger player you get a chance to play as a character you watch on TV or if they don’t watch get to know some iconic character which will make you want to watch the show. So be ready kids! Aye, Aye, Captain!
