    SpongeBob SquigglePants has a few problems that can be justified -- the lack of impressive 3D effects doesn't sting since the game includes a variety of cool art styles, and the game's derivation from the WarioWario formula can be forgiven since the core gameplay is entertaining. Unfortunately, there's no good reason for the game's biggest problem: the extreme dearth of content. At $40, there's not nearly enough of SpongeBob SquigglePants to justify a purchase.

    Spongebob is a title very fun to play thanks to a flawless technical execution. The only limitation of the game lies in its low level of challenge that makes it a title mostly for children.

    That being said, the game is well worth playing, for both kids and adults, as the nanogames are well done, Patchy the Pirate is hilarious and the art style is fantastic. If the game had more nanogames and a more compelling 3D implementation it'd be a different story, but as it is, it's tough to recommend for the price.

    SpongeBob SquigglePants formidably follows the nanogame formula established by WarioWare, and its simplicity, quick pace and silly humour are an entertaining, accessible and addictive combination.

    Spongebob Squigglepants might not have the polish of its garlic breathed inspiration, but it's a pretty solid title, even if you're not a SpongeBob fan. [May 2011, p.87]

    Spongebob doesn't have the personality to pull it all together. [Oct 2011, p.71]

    SpongeBob's latest title for the Nintendo 3DS just doesn't work and I'm not saying this to insult the classic fans, it's true though. It's aSpongeBob's latest title for the Nintendo 3DS just doesn't work and I'm not saying this to insult the classic fans, it's true though. It's a tough life for a gamer to even own a title for it and not find any great game to get for their Nintendo 3DS. Full Review »

Some of the minigames are so easy that you don't even move a muscle, this is just hilarious on how easy this kind of minigame is, if you go to the Nanogame Replay and click one of these, you could leave it on the floor, have a nap, and you'd be on to round 99, because you literally do nothing. One thing that was unfortunately left out from the WarioWare DIY game was the create your own minigame, which is missing here. Overall, 7.5/10 Full Review »
