    This is a review based on four playthroughs and 30+ hours of gameplay, so you can take my word for it when it comes to this game. If you love platformers, there's a very high chance you will love this game.

    Story: 10/10 - The game follows the story closely, but expands upon certain areas. You get to go deeper into the Thug Tug bar, Goofy Goober ice cream parlour, and many more areas, including Planktopolis (one of the most difficult areas of the game, but still enjoyable.)
    Gameplay: 9/10 - This is as good as any Spongebob game is ever going to get. You roam around as Spongebob or Patrick in a level, where you'll fight a multitude of different enemies to get to your goal: a GG token. These tokens are an essential part of the game, as they let you progress to the next level. Most are collected in challenges, while some are collected at the end of levels. Extra items like treasure chests (to unlock extra items, like alternate costumes) and GG tokens can also be found off the beaten path in most levels. The stages in this game come in three types: Roaming, Driving, and Boss. Roaming is the regular platformer gameplay. Driving sections put you in a vehicle to complete an objective. Boss battles pit you up against enemies such as King Neptune or Dennis the Mercinary, with these foes having a larger amount of health than typical enemies. You can collect floating weights (in game currencey) to upgrade Spongebob and Patrick's special moves, such as the Butt Smash, Explosive Glove, and more.
    Graphics: 9/10 - Characters and enviroments look exactly as they should. Not a blurred texture to be found here.
    Sound: 10/10 - From walking sounds to character voices, everything is as it is in the show. Music for the levels is perfect, ranging from creepy (Welcome to Planktopolis, Minions) to comical (I'm Ready... Depression). Each track fits the enviroment and situation perfectly.
    Overall: 10/10 - Overall, the Spongebob Squarepants Movie game is an addicting platformer with a wide variety of enemies, unlockables, and level types. If you are a platformer lover, this is definitely the game for you.

    SpongeBob SquarePants the Movie is a spongebob game that actually dosen't suck and is very enjoyable for all ages. It follows the movie's storyline very closely with a little extra plots added. The gameplay is very simple, but doesn't become too repetitive with 3 different kinds of levels that make the different levels unique.The game also gives many things to collect from extras to goofySpongeBob SquarePants the Movie is a spongebob game that actually dosen't suck and is very enjoyable for all ages.

Also the difficulty is overall easy but has some levels and parts the will challenge gamers of all ages. The only problems I had were with the camera being very annoying at times. Also Some of the levels are very boring and many of the moves that Spongebob and Patrick have, have been seen in past games. Overall through SpongBob SquarePants the movie is a great game that gamers of all ages will enjoy. Expand

  1. The Spongebob Squarepants Movie has impressed me so much that I'm almost embarrassed to admit it. There's loads of variety to keep anybody quiet for ages - it even kept me up, playing until the break of dawn!
  2. An above average platform game that delivers in terms of quality and fun. While not as joyous as Battle for Bikini Bottom, it is still a good game which will offer hours of gameplay.

    Controls feel responsive and the camera rarely hinders your view of the action. And the humor of the show practically seeps out of every clamshell and bed of kelp you cross.
