SpongeBob Squarepants is a peculiar kind of animated show that has managed to be extremely popular, probably more popular than its creators had imagined. The little yellow guy is now making his way to iOS in the form of a behind-the-back runner called SpongeBob Game Station. In terms of mechanics, the game appears to be a pretty basic endless runner where you run, slide, and jump as you try to survive the dangerous world of Bikini Bottom. Your mission will be to recover the stolen secret formula from Plankton, the world’s most diabolical—and tiniest—villain. The game will also include other mini-games including racing, match-3, and more.
As you can already guess, the developers are counting on SpongeBob’s popularity to lift the game. You’ll get to run as various characters from the series—Patrick, Squidward, etc—and along the way collect exclusive cards. In other words, if you like the show, you’ll enjoy the game. SpongeBob Game Station is currently soft-launched in the Philippines, and you can find out more about the game in our forums. If you’re an Android player, you can get your hands on the game right now. If you don’t have an account in the Philippines Store, check out our guide on how to get one.
