Who’s the multi-billion dollar franchise that started on television? Spongebob! Square pants!
If you’re like me, I hope you read it before the introduction.
And I can’t tell you how popular Sponge Bob has become in 20 years. Right now he has films, merchandise, amusement parks and of course video games!
No wonder there have been many Sponge Bob games, including crosses with other Nickelodeon programs.
As you would expect from these adaptations of television and video games, not all games are fantastic… Some, you might say, weren’t so good at all.
However, there are many gems among Sponge Bob’s games, so I’m going to look at the best (and some not so good) of them.
Are you kids ready?
25. Explosion of the Nikelodeon lot
First of all we have this Sponge Bob Duke crossover game from 2002 with other famous Nickelodeon characters.
You can choose from over 20 different modes and stages, ranging from food battles to races and special boss levels.
Although it’s not the most exciting game from Sponge Bob, you can see a drop of sponge in Nickelodeon Party Blast with his other famous cartoon colleagues. It’s a game for all Nick’s fans, really.
24. Save the cowards!
Sound of underwear! – is an exclusive title for Xbox 360, first released in 2007.
The gameplay crosses easy puzzles with the platform as you try to find all pairs of underwear – yes, you read what’s good in each level before time runs out.
In total you have 10 levels where you can play different characters in the show.
The gameplay as a whole is quite simple, but for some loyal SpongeBob fans it might be worth a visit.
23. Spongebob vs. Big: Party kitchen on the beach
If you’ve ever played one of the Culinary Mammagames, you might already know the game here.
Beach Party Cook-Off is the 2009 release of the Nintendo DS where you play for the sponge of the same name that Krusty the Crab spins. I don’t know how he got this job.
The game contains more than 25 mini-games where you can crush, mix, whip, decorate and serve your delicious creations.
Other activities concern the management of the crab and croûte, such as the purchase of new recipes, the adaptation of the menus served and even the decoration of the restaurant. Especially a cool sponge game + simulator.
Considering Sponge Bob’s love for his work, I’m glad they at least gave him the cooking game, which is a good thing.
22. Legend of a lost sheet
Legend of the Lost Spatula, released for Game Boy Color in 2001, is the first video game franchise to focus exclusively on SpongeBob (i.e. without crossover).
At that time the show was at its peak, as the seasons of the early 2000s left a lasting impression on our culture.
In the game you play for our charming sponge, who is looking for a golden spatula that will make him the greatest French fryer chef in the sea.
Like one of the older games, Legend of the Lost Spatula is a side-scrolling adventure with colourful and functional graphics that are not too impressive by modern standards. I mean, it’s the Game Boy, you can’t ask too much.
So, despite the simplicity of the plot, this title is a bit nostalgic, even if the gameplay doesn’t do it for you.
21. Person: Battle of Vulcan Island
Then we have a 2007 crossover, in which Sponge Bob, Patrick and Sandy join forces with Danny Phantom, Timmy Turner and Jimmy Neutron, among others.
After the call to Volcano Sorcerer Crab Island (yes, you’ve read it well), our Nicktoon heroes set off to defeat Mawgu, the villain who tried to ruin the title island.
Together with your fellow designers you’ll move through the platform levels, defeat your enemies and solve your puzzles in this action-packed game.
The Battle of Volcano Island also features a cooperative mode with two games on the consoles, so you can even bring a friend with you.
20. Spongebob – Pantalone Hero
SpongeBob HeroPants was released in 2015 and is a new video game based on SpongeBob’s latest (then) feature film from the Waterfranchise.
You’re playing for SpongeBob and his friends, who are all superheroes.
By uniting these forces, you must save Bikini Bottom from the evil plans of Plankton. This brings you to on 15 levels in three different game worlds.
You can update your characters and collect pages of spell books to determine how the game ends. Little twist.
However, this name differs significantly from its predecessors, both in terms of gameplay and graphics. Although the fans can still enjoy the film that is currently being recorded.
However, SpongeBob HeroPants released for Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360 is no longer available on Xbox Live, PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop, so it may be a little hard to find beyond the physical copies.
19. Person: Attack with a toy boat
A little higher up, we have another crossover that was first released in 2007 for Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, Wii and PlayStation 2.
Spongebob meets Danny Phantom, Jimmy Neutron, Timmy Turner, Tuck and many other characters from his favorite series Nickelodeon.
And what evil enemies do they have to win this time?
Sami… Well, something like that.
The enemies of the title, the Toybots, are evil toys inspired by cartoons.
The game is essentially an action-packed jump’n’run game, where you have to work your way through the levels, perhaps solving the puzzles smoothly while defeating your enemies along the way. An entertaining side result for Nictune fans.
18. Robotic revenge plankton
Plankton’s robotic revenge brings us a 3D underwater shooter.
After receiving the batteries, Plankton attacks the crunchy crabs with an army of robots (including giant Mechs!).
If you’re looking for Sponge Bob, Patrick, Sandy, Mr. Crab or squid, fight the plankton and its followers.
As you progress, you can buy weapons and upgrade them to change them when you encounter these mechanized bad guys.
Gameplay doesn’t stay fresh after the first bosses. And maybe one of the main attractions comes from the -show set, consisting of the -actors working together on a video game.
In cooperative mode, up to four players can play Robotic Revenge or Plankton with friends instead of playing alone.
The game was first released on multiple systems in October 2013: PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS and Xbox 360.
But like SpongeBob HeroPants, you will not find this game in any of the online stores where you can download it.
17. Nickelodeon card racer
Mario Kart meets Sponge Bob (and company) with Nickelodeon Kart Racers! Wait, I think I saw romance… Well, uh…
Nicktoon’s latest crossover has been released with the latest generation of consoles (Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One).
Race against computer-controlled friends and enemies by playing some of the most popular Nickelodeon cartoons (such as Sponge Bob!) Strangely enough, in addition to the classic characters, there are also Ninja Turtles – teen mutants in this title. And they also look like big turtles.
For the gameplay Nickelodeon Kart Racers follows the typical formula of kart racing.
You can customize your cars and buy bonuses during the races. This could be fun for you and your friends. It’s a fun game, so if you’re a Nickelodeon fan, you don’t want to miss it!
16. Spongebob on Atlantis PlazaPantida
Imagine you’re deliberately making a video game for television.
That’s exactly what Spongebob did.
Atlantis SquarePantis is the eponymous multiplayer video game released on various platforms (Wii, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance) in 2007.
As in previous Spongebob games, this name was a platform in the shower.
His console versions have suffered from being too different from other platforms and SpongeBob-based cartoons.
However, the portable versions (especially the Nintendo DS) offer a much more exciting gaming experience with levels, game mechanics and aesthetic designs that are better suited to game consoles.
Generally Atlantis SquarePantis is about in the middle, although it is definitely worth playing if you have a portable version.
15. Sinking of balloons
Nicklodeon really loves his crossovers.
The Globe of Rock 2008 essentially continues the battle for the volcanic island with the return of the villain Mawgu and most of the Nicktoon actors of this title.
Spongebob and his bikini-clad boyfriends take up a little more space (if you can’t see it from the cover), as most of the story follows the yellow sponge and brings together a great team of other Nickelodeon characters.
In the gameplay you go through the levels, collect coins and defeat your enemies with gadgets and fight combos.
Unfortunately, it has not brought anything new compared to previous games, but it seems to be a long game.
You can even take a friend to a cooperative game!
Sponge Bob finally arrives in exclusive distribution at Nintendo with Sponge Bob Squiggly Cowards.
This action game for Nintendo DS and Wii (if you have uDraw Game Tablet) has a facet of Nintendo’s WarioWare games.
The gameplay consists exclusively of minigames, called nanogames, that don’t last more than 10 seconds until the pop music. And as the name suggests, you can play with the tablet or the touch screen of the corresponding console.
All in all, it’s a beautiful game, with an artistic style that changes depending on how you play – a feature I really like. And it has plenty of opportunities to keep you entertained for hours on end while you aim for those high scores.
13. Sponge Bob Boat
In our next game, Sponge Bob will roll in another Nintendo exclusive game for DS and Wii.
Sponge Bob’s Boating Bash brings a devastating twist to the racing game genre and frankly helps set it apart from the crowd of Mario Kart and Nickelodeon Kart racers.
Boot Bash offers six different game modes and the ability to customize your car.
Now, only one of these game modes is your traditional start/finish race. The others will get you into action by hitting your opponents, performing special tricks and even in the final map mode.
I think Boot Bash is staying true to the spirit of the game with the yellow kitchen sponge. What’s more, thanks to the four-player multiplayer game, you can enjoy an incredibly fun game with your friends.
The question is whether Sponge Bob really can drive a boat.
This 2006 title takes us on a journey through the dreams of Sponge Bob, Patrick and Plankton.
You can play this game on GameCube, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, Wii and PlayStation 2, so there’s a wide range of consoles available.
Fun fact: Creature from the Krusty Krabbe is the starting game for Wii and , Sponge Bob’s newest game for GameCube!
The portable versions focus on 2D platforms, while the console versions offer 3D graphics, platform and vehicle sequences with full perimeter spraying.
When Creature came out of the crab, Krusty was a pretty impressive addition to the franchise. And the title continues to evoke nostalgic memories of how a good SpongeBob video game should play.
11. Truth sponge or bob square
First released in 2009, Truth or Square is another cross-platform version based on a TV episode of the series.
The game takes you on a tortuous chase to find Crabby Patty’s supposedly lost secret formula.
Our favorite sponge mistakenly relies on plankton to help it, resulting in jokes about memory machines and robot attacks on our evil miniatures.
Famous for bringing the smell of fresh air and water into play.
Truth or Square has a beautiful design and the standard beat ’em up action that is typical of these long Sponge Bob games. The development team also slipped in a good dose of can openers, secrets and memories about the show to keep the real fans happy.
10. Receipts of the Flying Dutchman
In addition to the top ten, Revenge of the Flying Dutchman.
It was first released in 2002 and was the first step in a franchise for a future generation of game consoles, starting with GameCube and PlayStation 2 (although it was also available for the Game Boy Advance).
Revenge of the Flying Dutchman has developed a style of action/platform gameplay that fans will see in much later Sponge Bob games.
In addition, it has, among other things, brought collectibles, equipment and bonuses to help you move forward.
In general, experiments were carried out with what was visually and mechanically possible, which resulted in a number of clumsy mechanical parts. However, this raid eventually resulted in fantastic Sponge Bob game releases, and that’s one of the reasons why the name still deserves great visibility in Sponge Bob theaters, a legacy of video games.
9. Super Sponge
In 2001 we launched SuperSponge, one of the first franchise video game releases.
This 2D side-scrolling platform tool allows you to collect objects while learning each level to the end.
At the time, the graphics were brilliant and weird. And the level of design was complex without being confusing.
Players had to skillfully use the pitch and the equipment they had purchased to overcome traps and other obstacles.
In any case, I’d say SuperSponge has given you enough trouble exploring the world of entertainment to keep you entertained for a while.
For many fans, that name might have been their first raid on the SpongeBob video game series, and it certainly didn’t disappoint them at the time.
8. Consumption: SpongeBob square pants Edition
Sponge Bob has teamed up with the Drawn to Life series to bring us this exclusive jewel for the Nintendo DS.
The narrative context of the game is borrowed from the Frankendula episode, but the gameplay remains true to the action-adventure style of Drawn to Life.
Players can bypass the bottom of the bikini by creating and fighting different Doodle creations.
You can also buy collectibles and use bonuses as you go through the levels!
Sponge Bob pulled to life is really taking advantage of the DS’ Touch Screen and paint capabilities, and we players are excited about that.
7. SpongeBob SquarePants: Employee of the month
In the 2002 reviews there was a Sponge Bob game for the PC with point and click.
Employee of the month is the game that contributes to the nostalgic charm.
At that time, there was nothing to say about 3D graphics, not even for a PC.
However,has meticulously recreated the Bikini Bottom we know and love from this show.
Mastering Sponge Bob through a fairly simple story and making it a parade of interaction with other favorite characters are made for a simple but fantastic experience in general.
6. Yellow alderman
Our famous sponge was canonically Mermaid Man’s biggest fan, so this 2005 version for Nintendo DS and PSP remains true to that fandom.
We can play Sponge Bob if he lives the Yellow Avenger superhero dream (at least for any other superhero game).
The gameplay combines intelligence, platforming and a lot of interaction with the main characters of the series.
You can also defeat several super villains in each game.
Since the Yellow Avenger has appeared on the next generation of handheld consoles, it also has a more impressive download schedule. This name essentially took what worked and was fun in previous SpongeBob games and held that ball in his hands.
5. Operation Crabburger
Another old but good year 2001, Sponge Bob’s year of glory.
Operation Krabby Patty allows you to choose between two slightly different scenarios that change the way certain levels are played.
Most of the game consists of mini-games, normally you play for Sponge Bob as part of the plankton to (again) steal the secret formula of the crab paste.
Fans can also explore parts of the bikini’s DNA and communicate with locals through dialogue and acronyms.
In general, Crabby Patty’s operation is a pleasant but short game. You could probably complete both scenarios in just a couple of hours, so it’s a lot of fun to play, but it’s also a lot of fun to finish. It’s a beautiful name that plays well and is always wanted.
4. Illumination, camera, trousers
Among the many party games, Lights, Camera, Pants is always the champion of the genre.
When the game was released in 2005, the console versions of the game even gave Mario Party a chance to win money.
Over 30 minigames (or auditions, as the game calls them) guarantee hours of entertainment as your favourite Sponge Bob characters.
In the storyline of the console version, characters are audited for a role in a TV series that pits the player against the AI.
Although it is a nice mention of the Little Mermaid, the most fun is to get together with friends and beat them in multiplayer mode.
The Game Boy Advance and Windows versions show the plot more clearly and include a variety of minigames.
3. Need to unite!
In the first three we have the mother of the Nicktoons crossover games.
Nicktoon’s Unite! was first released in 2005 and came at a time when crossover video games were not so common.
Sponsor Bob served as the figurehead of the game (he took a nice piece of the cover of the game as his will), although he was accompanied in this venture by cult figures from Danny Phantom, The Fairly Odd Parents and The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron.
You play as a team of four characters, each with their own health, weapons and special abilities.
Players must not only defeat their enemies, but also carefully keep all their characters alive to get through the story.
In line with the crossover idea, Nicktoons Unite! also supports a cooperative for four players on its console versions (Game Cube/PlayStation 2).
In the game you can switch between the characters and control their actions through extensive levels, making the game fun and returning to reality. It would be nice if there were a remastering or a sequel in HD for modern genre consoles.
2. Sponge Bob Square Pants (The Game)
In 2004, the first feature film SpongeBob got a big buzz (at least among the fans of the series).
No wonder the franchise has gone so far that there’s no one left.
Players control SpongeBob and Patrick on their journey to save Mr. Crabs and Bikini bottoms – yes, you probably just guessed it, Plankton.
Fortunately, a lot of effort has been put into developing this game and introducing the game mechanism that fans have enjoyed in previous games.
It is expected that there will be many platform games, minigames, driving sequences and other fun things like that.
Although the story changes depending on the version of the platform, this name is good to stay true to the cheerful and energetic vibrations that fans expect from a bowl of yellow sponge.
1. Stroke for the lower bikini
The battle for Bikini Bottom State, the bar is not, as my undeniable choice for the best SpongeBob SquarePants video game.
This game, first released in 2003 on almost all major consoles, sets the gold standard at for what could be Sponge Bob.
Players take control of Sponge Bob, Patrick and Sandy to save Bikini Bottom from the army of evil plankton robots.
Although there is nothing new in the story, Battle for Bikini Bottom provides the context for the fascinating world of mass games.
The levels are well thought out, sometimes they seem to stretch to infinity. While maintaining the charm and aesthetics of the show.
Each character also brings his or her own game mechanic, allowing players to approach battles creatively and overcome obstacles.
The variety of enemies has also refreshed the gameplay. In addition, the developers took care of a very talented distribution. In fact, most people play the same roles in the show, which has made the game much more exciting and truthful.
Currently the Game Boy Advance and PC versions have with gameplay, the first being a 2D platform game and the second a point-and-click game, just like the employee of the month mentioned above.
However, as far as the console versions are concerned, I can safely say that Battle for Bikini Bottom could become a competitor for one of the best 3D platforms of its time (outside the franchise).
In addition, I expect the game to improve over time with a thin HD remake.
