    Despite some of the issues, The Cosmic Shake is a very fun game that satisfies both fans of SpongeBob and of platformers, and is another contender in the list of games that are licensed by other forms of media that are actually genuinely solid in their own right, rather than merely taking advantage of name recognition. For anyone that has previously played Battle for Bikini Bottom or is generally interested in a 3D platformer full of cartoon shenanigans, then SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake might just be worth losing a boating license for.

    Purple Lamp has created one of, if not the best, SpongeBob SquarePants video games to date, and if you're a fan of the series, it's worth giving this one a look because it will undoubtedly give you a few laughs and fill you with tons of warm nostalgia.

    Have you ever wondered, what would’ve happened, if you gave a multiverse unlocking tool to an infantile sponge? Well, even though SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake doesn’t really reinvent the basic formula of its predecessor, it at least aims to answer that very question! This vibrantly colourful collection of teleportation-requiring adventures of the inseparable duo surely brings back a ton of memories. Get ready, because SpongeBob, Patrick, and the Bikini Bottom gang are back with a multiuniversal bang and a whole bunch of wishing bubbles.

    The Cosmic Shake disappointed me in many ways, but I can't say it's a failure, not at all. It's simply a game aimed directly at a particular target group. The youngest SpongeBob fans will have a good time, but the more mature enthusiasts - not so much.

    While it doesn’t do anything new for the platforming genre, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake offers innocent adventures with iconic characters across Bikini Bottom.

    Its adherence to the cartoon is also its saving grace, as excising the IP from this title leaves you with little more than a simplistic, passable platformer. If nautical nonsense be something you wish, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake will absolutely deliver enjoyment on par with the cartoon itself—just don’t expect there to be much of anything you haven’t seen before.

    The Cosmic Shake can be a fun collectathon with some charming moments, but the lack of original ideas and finesse make it feel more like an expansion than a brand new game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Great game! It fixed most of the errors of the first part. I also really liked the fact that there is no need to look for shovels scattered throughout the location for plot advancement. The graphics have become much better compared to the first part. The music has also become more complex and advanced, I can't help but praise the developers for it. And yes, finally SpongeBob is fighting with someone normal, and not with robots (already tired of so many games). As for the disadvantages: it was disappointing that you can only control SpongeBob. Due to the reduced number of playable characters, SpongeBob becomes too strong and pumped up compared to the first part (looks a little silly) In particular, I can attribute the number of locations to the disadvantages. I think it would be possible to do one or two more. Well, as it is, the game is beautiful, head and shoulders above the first part. And I personally thank the developers for the release on the Nintendo Switch platform) Expand

    While the main campaign of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS: THE COSMIC SHAKE was quite enjoyable, it felt lacking in many areas. To start with theWhile the main campaign of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS: THE COSMIC SHAKE was quite enjoyable, it felt lacking in many areas. To start with the positives, it has a very in depth and complex gambling minigame where you play poker with Patrick and many of the other fun cast members you meet along your journey. This is the only positive unfortunately because the fun cast of characters is actually only okay.
    To start with the negatives, I actually lied about there being a gambling mini game, there is none. This is a major blow to me as a spongbob fan as we all know spongebob is well known for his horrible gamlbing addiction.
    Overall, it's a fine return to form but lacks in certain areas that could be improved in the next game. Prime example: gun play is overall lacking and the weapon balance really needs to be adjusted more often in order to compensate for causal and competitive play. Still better than the previous entry, Spongebob Aquarepants: Truth or Square. but needs to be enhanced further.

    Если сравнить с недавним ремейком Битвы Бикини боттома, то это провал. Там было все, отличное начало, яркие и интересные поиски секретов, юмор и желание возвращаться в игру. Здесь это нет, поэтому дропнул на 5 часу игры, пройдя где -то чуть больше половины
    Целевая аудитория 12-14 лет, остальные мимо, не стоит тратить время на эту инру
