    Developer Tantalus came up with a beautiful 3D engine to make for one of the better-looking games on DS, and publisher THQ put enough love and support into this to make it last long and stand out from the flood of rush-job platformers parents have the choice of this holiday season.
  2. Playing around with SpongeBob is a hoot, and there’s a lot to do in Bikini Bottom . However, some mini-games or other content is needed to flesh the experience out and add to the replayability.

    Plays like a gameplay experiment gone wrong. [Dec 2005, p.120]
  4. But youngsters will need help completing some tasks as it's not always clear what to do next. Boss battles can also be demanding, requiring both button bashing and touch-screen scribbling.
  5. It isn’t a groundbreaking affair, however the engaging use of the touch-screen in conjunction with the solid core gameplay, gorgeous visuals, authentic presentation and storyline and a lenghty runtime earn The Yellow Avenger high praise from this reviewer and a firm recommendation to DS owners still searching for a worthwhile platformer.
