  • Summary: Someone has stolen King Neptune's crown, and Mr. Krabs is the main suspect. Despite having been passed over for a promotion by Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob and his faithful (but dimwitted) friend Patrick volunteer to make the perilous journey to Shell City to retrieve the crown and save Mr. Krabs' life. Play as SpongeBob or Patrick as they interact with characters from the movie, earn "manliness" points to gain power-ups, and explore vast environments in the "Patty Wagon." Collapse

  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.
  3. 78
    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.
  4. The overall gameplay is quite enjoyable. The humor and fun mini-games reel you in, and the added bonuses of unlockable treats such as trailers and costumes keep you playing more.
  5. SpongeBob fans and action gamers looking for a good ride will enjoy this thick slice of inspired wackiness. [Dec 2004, p.146]
  6. All platform games need are a healthy dose of variety and fun. If a yellow simpleton made of sponge can do it properly, then so can you.
  7. The core gameplay is simply tired. Jumping around collecting random doodads is just old - it's time to move on to new objectives in platformers. [Dec 2004, p.167]

    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 goofy goober tokens aswell. 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
