    Overall, SpongeBob is a decent title.
  2. Not an awful lot here, but it's funny enough to keep younger gamers playing. [June 2011, p.88]

    There could be some more explanation and a multiplayer mode, but all in all SpongeBob SquarePants is a cute SpongeBob microgame collection with a lot of speed and fun.

    However, the creative microgames and style of play presented in SpongeBob SquigglePants are delightful additions to the genre. [April 2011, p.85]

    Overall, while this won't be anyone's number one game on their shelf, Spongebob Squigglepants is a fun game to play, provided you aren't expecting more than a Wario Ware 'clone'.

    On the surface SpongeBob Squigglepants is a decent looking game, as it features SpongeBob at his finest and manages to maximize all of the uDraw's features to its fullest. Unfortunately, the quick pace of the nanogames, Patchy's grating voice, and the fact you can complete the game before lunch is served, make this a title that is hard for me to recommend everyone buy. What I can say though is that if you are a uDraw owner looking for some mindless SpongeBob entertainment, or you love that undersea sponge, then SpongeBob Squigglepants might just be right up your alley.

    While I'm still not sold on the idea of yet another Wii peripheral making it into millions of homes, I don't think that's through any fault of the UDraw tablet, which works flawlessly and winds up being a lot of fun to use. Spongebob Squigglepants is a great game to showcase this device, especially with the huge number of ways it uses the tablet and even pokes fun at other, more "mature" video games now and then.

    It should be WiiWare. [June 2011, p.64]

    SpongeBob Squigglepants is a fun game, and if it would have come out 3-4 years ago, I'm sure it would be well-received. However, the game suffers quite a bit from being nearly a carbon copy of a game that has been imitated to death.

    As far as reflex games, this isn't too terrible to play. Each "beat 20 games" setup has its own personality and artistic style - along with some fitting and pretty cool music to match - so it's not a total loss.

    With the wealth of SpongeBob games already available, there's no reason to shell out the money for what is essentially a WarioWare rip-off that requires an additional peripheral purchase to boot.
