Video game

Battle for Bikini Bottom is a SpongeBob SquarePants video game, released on the PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, Xbox, Game Boy Advance and PC, released on October 21, 2003. The player controls SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy to save Bikini Bottom from the robot army accidentally created by Plankton.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie game, released one year after this game, shares the same developer, many gameplay elements with it, and is sometimes considered a spiritual successor.

On June 5, 2019, Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated, a full remake of the game was announced by THQ Nordic.[1] It is scheduled for release in May 22, 2020.

Cast

Plot

All versions of the game share the same basic plot, albeit some minor differences:

Inside the Chum Bucket, Plankton comes up with another plan to steal the Krabby Patty formula from the Krusty Krab. He builds a machine called the Duplicatotron 3000 and uses it to create an army of robots, which he plans to use to destroy the Krusty Krab and succeed in his long-time goal. Although the plan goes smoothly at first, the robots start to rebel against Plankton when he gave them their first order, and soon after, Plankton realizes his fatal error. He forgot to set the "Obey Plankton" switch to "Obey." As a result, the robots lock Plankton out of the Chum Bucket and start to go on a rampage to destroy Bikini Bottom.

Meanwhile, in SpongeBob's house, SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star play with their toy robots and racehorses to pass the time. When SpongeBob asks Patrick if playing with real robots would be better, Patrick answers by showing SpongeBob his Magic Wishing Shell. Patrick explains to SpongeBob that if he puts the toy robots in the shell, says the magic words and shakes it, the next morning he will be rewarded with real robots to play with. SpongeBob follows up with Patrick's suggestion and proceeds to make his wish. By the next morning, SpongeBob wakes up to find his entire house trashed. He finds out on the news that Bikini Bottom is under attack by an army of robots. Believing that the rampage is his own fault due to his "wish," SpongeBob sets out to clean up his mess and help out his friends (including Plankton who wants to get back into the Chum Bucket) to save Bikini Bottom. However, what SpongeBob doesn't know is that Plankton is the one behind the whole mess.

  • Bubble Bash: Launches upwards with a bubble Viking helmet towards mid-air robots or tikis.
  • Bubble Bounce: Grows bubble feet and slams on top of enemies or tikis underneath.

  • SpongeBall: The only power-up based move, SpongeBob transforms into a ball and can do nothing but roll around, but is much faster. Press the jump button to return to normal SpongeBob.
  • Sneak: SpongeBob SquarePants can sneak around by moving slowly, sneaking past the Sleepy-Time robot enemy and crossing fragile platforms.

Patrick

  • Belly attack: Patrick throws out his belly, hitting robots and tikis directly in front of him with it.
  • Throw: Can pick up a Throw Fruit (watermelon), Freezy Fruit (actually a chunk of ice), tiki, or robot and throw it. In order to throw a robot, he needs to stun it with the body slam move.
  • Body slam: While in the air, Patrick can plummet directly downward to destroy things beneath him, sending out a small shock wave.

Sandy

  • Karate: Does a chop while on the ground and a kick while in the air.
  • Lasso: Can use it to tie up and destroy a far-away robot or tiki.
  • Glide: After doing a double jump, Sandy can use her lasso as a helicopter to reach farther distances.
  • Texas Trailer Hitches: Can swing on mid-air, Texas-shaped hooks with her lasso to go even farther distances than with the glide.

Items

  • Shiny objects: These are used as currency in the game, taking their design from a flower. The player can carry up to 99,999 shiny objects.
  • Golden Spatula: Golden spatulas are used to unlock new areas in the game. Their use is similar to the Power Star from "Super Mario 64".
  • Underwear: These restore one health point (for any missing pairs of underwear caused by taking damage).
  • Golden underwear: This permanently increases the player's maximum health by one point. There are three of them in the entire game, all within the Bikini Bottom hub.
  • SpongeBall: This power-up turns SpongeBob into a SpongeBall. Only SpongeBob himself can use this item.
  • SpongeBob's sundae: This power-up was completely cut from the game. The player can use a hex editor to replace the underwear powerup with the sundae. It allows the player to run faster and destroy stone tikis with any attack.[2]
  • Patrick's socks: If the player returns ten of these socks to Patrick the player will receive a golden spatula. There are 80 of them in the entire game.
  • Steering wheels: These are only found in Downtown Bikini Bottom. If the player returns all 11 to Mrs. Puff, they will obtain a golden spatula.
  • Artwork: These are only found in Rock Bottom. If the player returns all six to Mrs. Puff, the player will receive a golden spatula.
  • Energy crystals: These are only found in the Kelp Cave section of Kelp Forest. If the player returns all of them to Barnacle Boy, they will receive a golden spatula.

Tikis

Main article: List of tikis
  • Wood tiki: A wooden tiki with chattering teeth. These tikis are the most common and the easiest to break.
  • Floating tiki: A blue tiki. Unlike the other tikis, these ones float in the air. They can usually be broken with SpongeBob's Bubble Bash or Patrick's throw. They can also be used as platforms.
  • Shhh tiki: A tiki with big ears that disappears when approached. SpongeBob must sneak toward it to break it. Additionally, the Bubble Bowl can be used to break it without approaching it.
  • Thunder tiki: An angry-looking tiki that thunders when touched, which explodes after a few seconds. Destroying it from a distance is viable, as attacking it will also make it explode. They can also be used to destroy other tikis nearby, including stone tikis.
  • Stone tiki: A stoic looking tiki made from solid rock. They can only be destroyed by thunder tiki explosions or SpongeBob's Cruise Bubble.

Levels

  • Bikini Bottom - This is the hub world. Here, the player can access all the other levels. SpongeBob can complete minor tasks, such as annoying Squidward, clearing Sandy's treedome, and clearing the Krusty Krab. The robots also stole Patrick's socks (all of which are scattered throughout the other levels), and SpongeBob can get a golden spatula for every ten he returns to Patrick in the hub world. The Krusty Krab has also been "abandoned," and Mr. Krabs needs shiny objects to restore the restaurant. He's agreed to give the player golden spatulas, but only if the player can find enough shiny objects. The price increases every time a new golden spatula is available.
    • On Top of the Pineapple - A Golden Spatula is revealed at the top of SpongeBob's pineapple home when both the button between Patrick's and Squidward's house is pushed and the button between Squidward's and SpongeBob's house is pushed. Patience and some moving platforms will eventually bring the player to the top of SpongeBob's pineapple.
    • On Top of Shady Shoals - Standing on the pressure plate by the Police Station will open the way to a button, which the player must use the player's Bubble Bowl attack to press. This will reveal a springboard, taking the player to the top of the Police Station. Then, floating blocks will appear leading the player from the top of the Police Station to the top of Shady Shoals, allowing the player to collect a Golden Spatula.
    • On Top of the Chum Bucket - To the right of the "Chum Bucket" logo on the Chum Bucket there are three buttons lined up vertically that the player can hit with the Cruise Bubble. Hitting all three reveals a springboard which takes the player to the top of the Chum Bucket, allowing the player to collect a Golden Spatula. However, the buttons will depress after some time.
    • SpongeBob's Closet - The first Golden Spatula in the game; found by collecting 50 Shiny Objects and opening SpongeBob's closet.
    • Annoy Squidward - Going inside Squidward's home and going through the dialogue will activate this task. After the player has done this, the player will need to jump around. The number of jumps required is inconsistent, but it is around 10. Breaking objects around his house can be done, but does not add to the total. He will then pay the player with a Golden Spatula to leave him alone.
    • Ambush at the Tree Dome - Going inside Sandy's tree dome will activate this task. The player will need to not quit the level and destroy all of the robots, including Duplicatotrons. Once the player has done this, Sandy will reward the player.
    • Infestation at the Krusty Krab - Outside of the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs is standing. He will not trade the player any Golden Spatulas for Shiny Objects until the player does this task. Inside the Krusty Krab, the player will need to destroy all of the robots, including Duplicatotrons. Once the player has accomplished this, Mr. Krabs will reward the player outside, thus reactivating trades.
    • A Wall Jump in the Bucket - Inside of the Chum Bucket, there is a vent pipe in one of the corners. Climbing onto this and treating it as a wall jump will reward the player with a Golden Spatula.
  • Jellyfish Fields - The first single level. Squidward has been attacked by robots and jellyfish, and SpongeBob needs to go to the top of Spork Mountain to find a jar of "King Jellyfish" jelly for him to use as a coolant for his wounds. The trouble is, the King Jellyfish has to be defeated before the player can get the jelly.

  • Goo Lagoon - A robot has stolen all the sunscreen, and the only way SpongeBob can get it back is to reflect the heat onto the robot to get revenge.

    • Here You Go - Just walk up to Patrick in his dream. (No Task)

  • Chum Bucket Lab - This is the final and most secret of the levels. Here, Plankton's scheme is revealed, and SpongeBob must finish his mission. But first, he must battle a robot manifestation of himself and robot Plankton. He also needs to enter the robot's head and blow some fuses to jam the electrical system and defeat the robot, but Plankton's robot may be harder to defeat. The player needs 75 golden spatulas to enter. The player is given no checkpoints when inside Robo-SpongeBob, so if the player is defeated, the player has to restart the area.
    • Kah - Rah - Tae! - Inside the lab, the player is greeted with a robot version of SpongeBob using tactics to endeavor defeating the player. After every 3 cycles, a robot Plankton will be blasting lasers at the player, only vulnerable to hits during his pause of shooting. Once the player has hit the robot Plankton, Robo-SpongeBob will awake and add in a new move to the cycle.
    • The Small Shall Rule... Or Not - Robo-SpongeBob has had enough and powers down. This upsets robot Plankton, who activates a growth in Robo-SpongeBob and gives him muscular arms, which forces SpongeBob to go and hit his vulnerability from the inside.

Robots

  • Fodder - The most common robot found throughout the game and the easiest to defeat. These robots will come after the player and attack with their electric wands. They are worth 5 points.
  • Ham-Mer - A robot taking the pun of the word "hammer" literally, using a hammer made of ham as its choice of weapon. These robots attack the player with a vicious slam attack. They can be often notorious for also knocking players off the edge into the abyss. They first appear in Jellyfish Fields and are worth 25 points.
  • Tar-Tar - A robot that attacks by blasting the player with three shots of hot tartar sauce. These robots take a little more effort to defeat with normal attacks due to their high stamina but an explosion or strong attack such as the Bubble Bowl can take them out in one blow. Due to their weight, Patrick can't pick up Tar-tars. They first appear in Jellyfish Fields and are worth 30 points.
  • Chomp-Bot - A robot that will chase after the player and try to bite them with their metallic jaws. They are also equipped with toxic gas which they can breath out for extra measure. They are worth 10 points.
  • G-Love - A frisbee-shaped robot that attacks by spinning in an attempt to whack the player with their arms. Normal attacks are rendered useless while it's spinning so only air-based and the Bubble Bounce attack can defeat them. They first appear in Downtown Bikini Bottom and are worth 40 points.
  • Chuck - These are probably the most dangerous robots in the game. They will attack the player by throwing a water missile and their aim is very accurate. Getting around them can be tricky, especially when crossing gaps as the player must get them to throw the missile out of the player's path. Patrick can stun these bots if the player is directly underneath them. They first appear in Downtown Bikini Bottom (in the rooftops area) and are worth 50 points.
  • Monsoon - A robot that hovers around and attacks by creating storm clouds with their remote that can zap lightning on the player. Only air-based attacks like the Bubble Bash can reach them as they hover high above the ground. Like Chuck, Patrick can stun these bots if the player is directly underneath them. They first appear in Goo Lagoon and are worth 60 points.
  • Bomb-Bot - A small robot that will set off its fuse and chase after the player; it explodes after a few seconds and can hurt the player if they get caught in the blast radius. It's easy to destroy a Bomb-bot before it self-destructs; doing so will earn the player 15 points. If a Bomb-bot detonates on its own, the player receives nothing. Their behaviour is similar to the Bob-omb from the Super Mario series.
  • Sleepy-Time - A sleeping robot that wakes up when the player gets near and blasts lasers at the player until the target can get out of their range. Only SpongeBob is quiet enough to sneak near Sleepy-Times undetected so if the player is playing as Patrick or Sandy, the best strategy to defeat them with distant attacks. The Bubble Bowl is also useless against them because they can deflect the attack away with their force field. The Cruise Bubble can also be used to destroy them. Pat can't stun them since their detector extends beyond his ground-pound. They first appear in Rock Bottom and are worth 70 points.
  • Arf - A cowboy robot that spawns Arf Dawgs from his doghouse. He takes a lot more effort to defeat and attacks the player with his doghouse whenever they get too close to him. A quick way to deal with an Arf is to knock his own Arf Dawgs into him, or by using the Bubble Bowl. However, Arfs can also be defeated in one blow with a strong attack such as the Cruise Bubble. They first appear in the Mermalair and are worth 80 points.
  • Arf Dawg - A dog-like robot spawned from an Arf's doghouse. These robots seek the player out and explode after a few seconds. Their behavior is similar to a Bob-omb from the Super Mario series (a trait shared with the Bomb-Bot). The player does not receive Shiny Objects from these robots but the player can use them to attack the Arf.
  • BZZT-bot - A robot that will continuously zap the player with a gamma-ray laser out of their eye until the player either defeats them or backs away. It can be responsible for draining the player's health very quickly and leaving the player vulnerable to other robots. It can hover over anything. If the player waits about thirty seconds, it'll shoot spiral fireworks and spin around. The fireworks don't hurt. They are worth 20 points.
  • Tubelet - Tubelets are small robots that are always found in groups of three and attack with flame jets from their tubes. All three must be destroyed to permanently defeat them; otherwise, they will respawn and counterattack with an explosion. They first appear in the Kelp Forest and are worth 90 points upon their defeat.
  • Slick - A robot that attacks by shooting globs of oil at the player. The blobs will affect the player's traction on the surface if the player gets hit and even if the glob hits the ground, it will leave behind a puddle of oil that must be avoided. These robots are protected by a shield of oil that must be taken out with distant attacks but the shield can re-spawn after a few seconds. A powerful attack such as the Cruise Bubble is most effective for defeating them. They first appear in the Flying Dutchman's Graveyard and are worth 100 points.
  • Duplicatotron 1000 - They serve as robot spawners and will continue spawning robots in the area until they are destroyed. Be careful though, the Duplicatotrons meet an explosive end once their stamina is drained, so back out once the player has dealt with them. They are worth 50 points.

Bosses

King Jellyfish from "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic" is the first non-robot boss in the game. He seems to be able to shoot a powerful shock wave and it seems that, despite being male, he's the one who lays the rest of the jellyfish. Going under his body will damage the player. The player hits him after he does his shock wave attack.

Robo-Sandy is the first robot boss in the game. Her main attacks include a karate chop (which only happens if she gets too close), a large jump (which for some reason stuns itself), and a clothesline move (this is when she runs to the edge and springs herself across the arena with her hands and feet against the edge and attached to her main body by springs - the move can be avoided by jumping over or through the springs). the player uses Bubble Bounce, throws her head at a broken scoreboard (Phase 2), and uses Bubble Bash on her head to defeat her (Phase 3).

Prawn is a blue evil shrimp and the second non-robot boss in the game. He also is shown to be armed with a specially designed French horn, and is Mermaid Man's archenemy because he turned all his socks pink. During his second and third phases, Prawn will spawn Ham-Mers which can be dangerous due to their ability to knock the player off. The player has to use Bubble Bowl on him when the Disco Floor is silver and while avoiding the robots (It will burst on a yellow or red floor).

Robo-Patrick is the second robot boss in the game. His main attacks include spitting moves, freeze breath, ice cream slams, and a spinning move that releases industrial waste around him and leaves the robot vulnerable by making him dizzy.

The Flying Dutchman needs SpongeBob's help to get the robots off his ship so Sandy can fight him. He is the third and final non-robot boss in the game. He is the only boss who SpongeBob does not fight at all, only Sandy can fight him.

Robo-SpongeBob is the third robot boss in the game. His main attacks include a large arm swing that freezes him, karate slams (that flip the platform the player is on), and a three-part sweeping attack in which it shouts "KAH-RAH-TAE!" and the sound waves will knock the player unconscious. According to Robo-Plankton, they were supposed to be married, despite their masculine sexes.

Robo-Plankton is the final robot (and overall) boss of the game. His main attack is a sonic blast. According to himself, the robots have always been obeying Plankton through the entire game.

In the movie theater, the player can see that a Robo-Squidward was originally planned to be in the game, possibly as a secret boss. This was scrapped before the game's release. But in the Game Boy Advance version, a Robo-Squidward is present, and his attacks include slamming his tentacles down onto the ground and blowing out musical notes that will stun anyone who gets hit. Robo-Squidward could possibly be located in his dream. This also opens up the possibility that Squidward was originally going to be a playable character.

Game Boy Advance Version

The gameplay in the GBA version is 2D platforming similar to the likes of Super Mario but with a puzzler twist.

Reception

The game received generally positive reviews and won numerous awards like the Kids Choice Award for Favorite Video Game. Official PlayStation Magazine gave the game 4.5 out of 5. The game sold well enough to claim Greatest Hits on PS2, Player's Choice on GameCube and Platinum Hits on Xbox. Despite its relative obscurity nowadays, BFBB and the The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game have amassed a decently sized cult following over the years. On June 5, 2019 THQ Nordic announced that a remake titled Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated is in production. It will be developed by Purple Lamp Studios and aims to not only remake the game for modern platforms, but to also restore much of the content that was cut by the original developer, Heavy Iron Studios.

4. Welcome

Welcome to my FAQ for SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle of Bikini Bottom (or SBSP: BOBB for short). Since this is an action/adventure game, there is no walkthrough per se. Instead, this FAQ is broken up into parts. First you will be given an explanation of choices you have for playing the game. Next, you will be given all the possible commands you can give with a brief description of what those commands are. The last part is dedicated to strategy. This strategy will give you an idea on how to fulfill the requirements for getting the various items or doing the various tasks required to complete each area. Input is appreciated along with constructive criticism. If you wish to e-mail me thoughts on this FAQ, better ways of doing things, other strategies, etc., feel free. Make sure you put SBSP: BOBB in the subject. If you don't, I'm liable to discard the e-mail as spam.

5. Overview

"Are you ready kids?". With this sentence, we begin yet another episode of SpongeBob SquarePants. SpongeBob returns to us after a group of evil robots decide to turn Bikini Bottom and the surrounding areas into their own personal playground. It is up to SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy to help set things right again. The usual cast of characters returns to give advice, criticism, or insults to the above three characters. Mr. Krabs is still obsessed with money, Squidward is his usual dourfaced self, Plankton (who caused this mess) is as remorseless as usual. Of course, we can't forget about Gary who helps the characters by giving them sound advice. A new character also enters the lineup. Bubble Buddy also offers some solid advice and provides helpful items to SpongeBob. Mindless fun and entertainment are the name of this game as the Battle of Bikini Bottom heats up.

Unit II

6. The Areas

SBSP: BOBB will require you to go through nine areas under the sea. You may have to revisit areas in order to complete certain taskings or to get the all the Gold Spatulas or Socks. The strategies for completing these areas are in Chapter 10. Each area, in itself, also requires certain things to be accomplished before you can unlock the way into other areas. The areas are (in alphabetical order) listed below:

Bikini Bottom (Where you start at), Poseidome, and Industrial Park Chum Bucket Lab Downtown Bikini Bottom Flying Dutchman's Graveyard Goo Lagoon Jellyfish Fields Kelp Forest Mermalair Rock Bottom Sand Mountain SpongeBob's Dream

9. General Strategies

These are general strategies to make your journey through the different areas more enjoyable (or tolerable at least). These also can be used when you don't want to look at the specific strategies and want to solve things on your own. Again, these are not all-encompassing and I know there are other general strategies to use. These are, though, the best I have found to work for me.

  • Use your SAVE liberally. Especially every time you do something important like get a letter tile, complete a checkbox, or find a new area. Nothing is more frustrating then playing a couple of hours on a game only to have the power go out and you having to start over.
  • Learn to use the controls with proficiency. I know, this sounds so basic but you would be surprised at how many people complain about not being able to do certain things because they don't know how to use the controls. There are quite a few tight areas, narrow ledges, killer jumps, etc. that the chosen character will be required to perform. If you don't know how to use your controls, then you better be prepared for either a long game or quitting due to frustration.
  • When you are jumping, use this trick. Sometimes you will have to jump on very small ledges or very thin surfaces. Use your shadow for guidance. If the chosen character's shadow is over the area you want to land, then it is safe to land. You must also take into account if what you are jumping onto a moving object.
  • Make sure you constantly refer back to your "To Do List". It will give you an idea of what you need to do or where to go to get the Golden Spatula. Keep in mind, you may not be able to complete an area until you go to another area and do certain things. This means you may end up running between a couple of areas so that you can complete them.
  • Never get just the minimum required for a level. What I mean by this is if an area requires you to get 10 spatulas or 100 shiney objects, take everything you can out of that area above and beyond what is expected. This will pay untold dividends down the road when you need to get through an area quicker.
  • Some areas have more than one part. What I mean by this is that you may have to scale cliffs or go through caves to get through those other parts. You will notice this when you must get a Gold Spatula but the area you are in doesn't contain the features required for said spatula. This is also true of tasks that can span many subareas within the main area.
  • Learn to use the camera controls. Nothing is more frustrating then trying to do a specific task and the camera angle only adds to the difficulty. If the camera refuses to rotate in one direction, go the other direction to ensure that you have the best possible angle to accomplish your task. There are a few mini-games and boss battles, though, that you aren't allowed to use the camera on.
  • Keep in mind that when you are carrying objects, you cannot jump. You must toss the object onto the next level and retrieve it. This means you need to plan your moves carefully, especially if the object has a short life (i.e. watermelons). There are areas that you can bounce with an object but that is all you can do.
  • Of course, when all else fails, consult the specific strategy section to get yourself out of a bind.

10. Specific Strategies

When I was making this section, I had to decide on the best way to present the material in an easy to read, logical format. After some thinking on this, I decided to present it according to the way the areas came off of Bikini Bottom. There is no right or wrong way to go through these different areas and the order is really unimportant. You may not, however, be able to fully complete each area unless you do specific things in another area. The Chum Bucket will usually be the last area to complete since it requires the most Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to get into. This doesn't mean that you will need to complete all areas for the requisite number of Gold Spatulas.

There are nine major areas within the game and xx subareas within these main areas. Some of the subareas require you to do certain tasks before you can get into them. I will break down the areas and subareas as you get to them in the game. In addition, I will list the areas by the cost in Gold Spatulas.

Bikini Bottom is where you will start your adventure at. Bikini Bottom is broken up into three areas. You gain access to the other areas by going through the Poseidome and Industrial Area.

It is from Bikini Bottom that one can access all the other main areas in the game. From Bikini Bottom, you can access Downtown Bikini Bottom, Jellyfish Fields, and the Goo Lagoon. From Poseidome you can access Rock Bottom, Mermalair, and Sand Mountain. From the Industrial Park you can access Kelp Forest, SpongeBob's Dream, the Flying Dutchman's Graveyard, and Chum Bucket Lab. You must have the required number of Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to access these areas.

To accomplish two of the areas, one must have shiny objects for Mr. Krabs or socks for Patrick. The socks locations will also be stated within the walkthrough itself.

So, in review, this is how I will set up each area:

_________________

/ NAME MAIN AREA /_____________________________________________________________


Gold Spatula Locations: (the numbers will be used to annotate which Golden

Spatula you will recover in the walkthrough.  These
are in the order they appear in the Pause Game list)

Socks: (socks in area) Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: (to access the major area in

   question)

Brief outline of the level and anything special that you need to be aware of.


| NAME OF SUB AREA | (if any)


Gold Spatula Locations: (the numbers will be used to annotate which Golden Spatula you will recover in the walkthrough. These are in the order they appear in the Pause Game list) Socks: (socks in area) Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: (to access the major area in

   question)

Brief outline of the level and anything special that you need to be aware of.

At the end of each area, I will give the total spatulas and socks you should have.

10.1 Bikini Bottom, Poseidome, Industrial Park

Gold Spatula Locations: 4. SpongeBob's Closet

Socks: 1

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None, it's where you start at

  • You start off the adventure in SpongeBob's house. Basically wander around and collect all the shiny objects so you can access all the rooms within his house. There are signs with question marks on them that give you more details on playing the game. Once you have accessed all the rooms, it's time to collect a sock and a Gold Spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Pay the required number of shiny objects and enter the attic. Look to the right and you will see a switch up high. Jump into the switch to release the beach ball.
  • Continue around the right and go under the big structure. Jump up and hit that switch to make a trampoline appear to the left. It will be straight in from the door.
  • Turn and face the door. Look to the left and up and you will see a switch. You can do this one of two ways. Either use the beach ball for elevation to hit the switch or jump on the doorway, jump left, and activate the switch. Either way, you will see platforms extend from the bookcases.
  • A timer with 25 seconds will be activated. The goal is to get to the highest platform before time expires. Run to the trampoline and double jump to the left or right platform. Continue to follow the platforms up and a sock will be your reward.

_______________________________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #4 ***
  • This one is real easy. The closet is a straight walk from the attic door.

_______________________________________________________________________________

10.1.1 First Part of Bikini Bottom

Gold Spatula Locations: 1. On Top of the Pineapple

5.  Annoy Squidward

Socks: 3

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: 1 Gold Spatula

  • When you exit SpongeBob's house, Plankton will be there to chat with him. Basically Plankton needs some help to get these robots under control. Of course, SpongeBob volunteers to help.
  • Turn right and go in between SpongeBob's and Squidward's houses. You will see a switch held up by balloons. Go to behind Squidward's house and to the left to see a switch with two Wooden Tikis on it.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #1 ***
  • Break the Tikis over the switch. Go over to the floating switch and jump up to activate it. A timer with 40 seconds will start and two platforms will appear between SpongeBob's and Squidward's homes.
  • Go over to the switch and belly flop to activate it. Another platform will appear between Squidward's and Patrick's homes. Jump on Patrick's house then jump to the platform. Ride it over to Squidward's. Work your way around Squidward's house on the ledges.
  • Jump on the two platforms to get to the Pineapple. You now own another spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • To get the golden underwear, activate the platform between Squidward's and Patrick's houses again. Go all the way to the top of Squidward's home to retrieve them.

_______________________________________________________________________________

*** SOCK #1 AND GOLD SPATULA #5 ***
  • The best way to annoy Squidward is to jump around him and break things up. Eventually he will get made and tell you to stop. He will also hand you the Gold Spatula.
  • Wreck everything in Squidward's house. Either by destroying the moose over the fireplace or by defacing his picture, will cause a sock to appear in the window.

_______________________________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #2 ***
  • This one sits right by Patrick and is the easiest one to get.

_______________________________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #3 ***
  • Enter Patrick's rock. Destroy his couch and a sock is your reward.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • From the First Part of Bikini Bottom, you can access the following areas:

Downtown Bikini Bottom: 5 Gold Spatulas Jellyfish Fields : Free Goo Lagoon : 10 Gold Spatulas Poseidome : 15 Gold Spatulas

10.1.2 Poseidome

Gold Spatula Locations: 1. Rumble at the Poseidome

Socks: None

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: 15 Gold Spatulas

  • In order to enter the Second Part of Bikini Bottom, you must take on the Sandy Robot in the Poseidome. You will be doing this with a SpongeBob and Patrick tag team.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #1 ***
  • You will start out as SpongeBob. The Sandy Robot has to be hit nine times before it is defeated. The tag team consists of SpongeBob and Patrick alternating every three hits.
  • SpongeBob will enter the ring to tangle with the Sandy Robot. The Sandy Robot will attempt to do an elbow slam on SpongeBob. If that fails, it will try to do a body slam. When the robot is on the mat, have SpongeBob do a jump attack. After three successful hits, Patrick takes over.
  • Sandy adds another move to its arsenal. After the elbow drop, it will go into the ropes and shoot forward will extending its legs the full length of the ring. Patrick must jump over to avoid getting hit. When the robot does the body slam, have Patrick jump up and belly flop the robot. The robot's head will come off.
  • Have Patrick retrieve the head and toss it into the scoreboard that fell down in between the changeover from SpongeBob to Patrick. Do this three times to bring SpongeBob back into the ring.
  • When SpongeBob returns, the robot modifies its leg drag by adding an arm drag. That means SpongeBob will have to jump in between the extended legs and arms. Again, hit the robot when it body slams. The Sandy Robot will hold its head in front of it. Have SpongeBob jump straight up to hit it. After three hits, the Sandy Robot is history.
  • In addition to the Gold Spatula, you also gain the Bubble Bowl attack for SpongeBob.
10.1.3 Second Part of Bikini Bottom

Gold Spatula Locations: 2. On Top of Shady Shoals

6.  Ambush at the Tree Dome

Socks: 2

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None, Poseidome opens up this part.

  • Upon entering this area, turn left to Sandy's Treedome and enter it.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #6 ***
  • When you enter the Treedome, Sandy tells SpongeBob that the robots are running rampant and that she wants SpongeBob to take care of the problem.
  • This is a timed evolution. You will have 2:40 to take care of the robot infestation. Once you have taken care of the robots, Sandy will reward SpongeBob with a spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #2 ***
  • Look to the left of the Police Station and you will see a pressure pad.
  Stand on the pad to open up a switch in front of the pad.
  • Get your bubble bowling shoes on and roll one into the switch. When you do,
  a trampoline will appear and boxes will appear between the Police Station
  and Shady Shoals.
  • Bounce up to the roof of the Police Station and don't forget to collect the
  golden underwear in the vent.  Go to the moving boxes and jump across to the
  roof of Shady Shoals.  Collect the spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Go to the fountain and hit it. Jump up to get the sock. Be careful and don't fall in the water.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #2 ***
  • Enter the Shady Shoals retirement home. Hit the TV that Mermaid Man is watching and a sock will appear over the checker board

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • From the Second Part of Bikini Bottom, you can access the following areas:

Rock Bottom : 25 Gold Spatulas Sand Mountain : 30 Gold Spatulas Industrial Park : 40 Gold Spatulas Mermalair (Through Shady Shoals): Free

10.1.4 Industrial Park
  • Gold Spatula Locations: 1. Robo-Patrick Ahoy!
  • Socks: None
  • Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: 40 Gold Spatulas
  • In order to enter the Third Part of Bikini Bottom, you must take on the Patrick Robot in the ring. You will be doing this with a SpongeBob and Sandy tag team.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #1 ***
  • You will start this match off as SpongeBob. The arena itself has conveyor belts and platforms along the edge. The middle is terraced down toward a drain and goo surrounds the entire area.
  • Stay along the edges and avoid the Patrick Robot's spittle. It will lick the ice cream and send a shot at SpongeBob. If that fails, the Patrick Robot will spin around throwing up ice cream goo all over the place.
  • After the spinning, the robot gets dizzy and falls down. This is where you hit the robot where the "Kick Me" sign is on its back. Do this three times and SpongeBob will be encased in ice. Time for Sandy.
  • The robot will follow the same process as it did with SpongeBob. After the first hit, though, the robot will flood the lowest area with goo. To counter this, Sandy can lasso one of the hooks to drop boxes. When the Patrick Robot falls down, she can use a box to jump from into the robot's back.
  • After the second hit, the robot fills up the next area. After the third hit, the robot totally floods the lower area leaving only the raised platform and conveyor belt untouched.
  • SpongeBob takes over again. This time, the Patrick Robot starts off by using a blast of icy breath followed by a goo spit. The best solution to this is to get on the conveyors in the back of the area. When the Patrick Robot falls down, you can use the stable, non-conveyor platforms to Bubble Bowl into the robot's back. After three hits, the robot is history and the spatula is yours.
10.1.5 Third Part of Bikini Bottom
  • Gold Spatula Locations:
  • 3. On Top of Chum Bucket
  • 7. Infestation at the Krusty Krab
  • 8. A Wall Jump in the Bucket
  • Socks: 2

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None, Industrial Park opens up this

  area.
  • Your first priority should be to talk to Bubble Buddy. He will give the Cruise Bubble. The Cruise Bubble is a guided missile that can be guided to the target. This will be a very handy weapon for all the areas.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #3 ***
  • Look at the side of the Chum Bucket and you will see three buttons going up the wall. Use the Cruise Bubble to activate these buttons.
  • A trampoline will appear. Get on it to get on the roof and you will get the spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Use the trampoline to bounce up to the Krusty Krab sign to collect the golden underwear.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #8 ***
  • Go into the Chum Bucket and look to the back wall. You will see a pipe coming out and curving upwards.
  • Jump onto the pipe and use the sticky-wall technique to climb this area. You are rewarded with a spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Go behind the Krusty Krab and whack the dumpster. It will move aside to reveal a sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

*** GOLD SPATULA #7 AND SOCK #2 ***
  • Mr. Krabs will tell you that the robots are busy busting up his place. He has tasked SpongeBob with clearing out the Krusty Krab.
  • When you enter, you will note that there are two Duplicatotron 1000's on the rafters. The goal is to get up to the upper area and take everything out. Beware of the Sleepy time robot.
  • When you are done clearing out the robots, go on a smashing binge. A sock will appear in the crow's nest. Collect your Gold Spatula from Mr. Krabs.

  • From the Third Part of Bikini Bottom, you can access the following areas:

Kelp Forest : 50 Gold Spatulas Flying Dutchman's Graveyard : 60 Gold Spatulas Chum Bucket Lab (Through Chum Bucket): 75 Gold Spatulas SpongeBob's Dream : Free Movie Theater : 40,000 shiny objects

10.1.6 Mr. Krabs
  • Mr. Krabs will be standing in various areas. He tells SpongeBob that for a specific amount of shiny objects, he will give SpongeBob a Gold Spatula. The number of shiny objects is: 3,000; 3,500; 4,000; 4,500; 5,000; 5,500; 6,500; 7,500. This takes care of the Mr. Krabs area.
10.1.7 Patrick
  • For every 10 socks you bring Patrick, he will give you a Gold Spatula.
10.1.8 Spongeball Arena
  • Gold Spatula Locations: None
  • Socks: None
  • Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: Must have defeated Spongebot in Chum Buckets Lab
  • This area just has you going around loops and trampolines. You will stay as a Spongeball in the entire area. Good for picking up extra Shiny Objects.

  • Total Gold Spatulas for Bikini Bottom: 8
  • Total Socks for Bikini Bottom : 8

10.2. Downtown Bikini Bottom

  • Gold Spatula Locations:
  • 1. End of the Road
  • 2. Learn Sandy's Moves
  • 3. Tikis Go Boom
  • Socks: 4
  • Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: 5 Gold Spatulas
  • In addition to the above taskings, there will be other taskings specific to this area that you will have to perform. Before you start doing all the below taskings, you will need to open up the downtown area for easier navigation.
  • After you see Mrs. Puff, turn left and you will see a Spongeball and a switch in the ground. After you activate the switch, you have three seconds to get through the gate. This means turning into a Spongeball to accomplish this.
  • Follow that road around. When it turns right, you will see another switch and Spongeball. This switch opens the gate at the end of the road. Again, hit the switch and roll to the gate. You have ten seconds to navigate past the Tabasco sauce to get through the gate.
  • After you have opened this gate, backtrack. Take care of the robots and go next to the Thunder Tikis along the fenceline. This will cause them to explode blowing holes in the fence. One hole will be by the bank and another will be at the next road before the road you came in on.
  • Go through the gate you last had to open and go to the right wall. In the
  distance, on a building, a cannon is busy firing junk at you.  Keeping
  following to the right until you get under the cannon.  Look left and you
  will see a switch and Spongeball.
  • Activate the switch and a ramp will appear and a boat will drop into the hole. Turn into a Spongeball and go up the ramp, bounce off the boat, and go to the road on the other side.
  • Follow this road around to the right. When you turn the next right corner, you will see a Spongeball. In the distance you will see a ramp with a lifering for a hole in the fence. This is next to a Duplicatotron 1000. Turn into a ball and jump the ramp and go through the hole. Use the Thunder Tikis to blow open the fence.
  • Turn right and use the Thunder Tiki to blow open the fence next to the building with the cannon. You have now opened up the downtown area for maximum movement.

  *** GOLD SPATULA #1 ***
  • Talk to Mrs. Puff and she will relay that the citizens of the downtown area have to escape. In order to do this, they need their boat wheels. She has tasked SpongeBob with finding the elusive 11 boat wheels. These are the locations of said wheels:

DOWNTOWN:

  • Look straight ahead and you will see three wooden Tikis. On top is a wheel.
  • Look left and up. On the awning is a wheel.
  • From the where you enter the downtown area, go straight and there is a wheel against the fence.
  • Turn right, from the entrance, and head toward the statue. Turn left and
  head up that road until you pass the Lighthouse.  Turn left past where the
  Duplicatotron 1000 used to be and then turn left down the next road (turning
  right takes you to the Sea Needle).  Go to the upended boat and there is a
  wheel on top of it.
  • Backtrack from the 4th wheel and go to the building with steps. Go to the
  bus stop and change to Sandy.  Jump and fly off the building to where the
  cannon is located.  Destroy the cannon and the wheel is at the end of the
  building.

ROOFTOPS:

  • Fly to the first roof and climb up on the second building. You will see a
  Tar-tar on a building to the right.  Fly over to that roof, take out the
  Tar-tar and climb the pipe to get the wheel.
  • Continue to follow the rooftops around. After you pass the clam for Gold
  Spatula 5, continue crossing the rooftops.  You will come to a trampoline.
  Instead of using the trampoline, hop up the platforms behind it to get the
  wheel.

  above the second platform

LIGHTHOUSE:

  • After defeating all the robots, one hovers above the switch on the ground
  floor.

SEA NEEDLE:

  • There is a wheel in the north and east hallways.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Go to the right (from the entrance) and head for the statue. You will see a
  cannon off in the distance busy shooting sinks and other objects.  You will
   see the front semi-circle with four columns of Tikis topped off by a
  Thunder Tiki.  Under these columns are switches.
  • The goal is to make the cannon fire high enough so it hits the Thunder
  Tikis.  In turn, that explosion will destroy the Tiki column and allow you
  to press the switch.  Do this for all four columns.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #3 ***

 (if you're lucky).
  *Sacrifice yourself and just jump to the sock.  You will die but will get
 the sock.
  *Use Patrick to get the Freeze Fruit from the other side of the cave and
 freeze the goo.  Your timing has to be pretty exact since there is very
 little margin for error.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • When you get to the planks on the wooden pier, you must get under the left
  plank and hit it up so it connects you to the right side.
  • Follow this path around. Watch out, mines drop from the ceiling and roll
  down this path.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #2 ***
  • This will require some precision jumping. Remember, use shadows to
  determine where you will land.
  • To the left of the path, that the mines are rolling down, are a series of
  five Floating Tikis.  You must get on these Tikis.
  • They will lead you to a ledge which overlooks the first buoy you crossed
  over.  Follow the ledge around and take care of the robots.  The sock is
  awaiting your retrieval.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Continue to follow the path around and you will end up at the place where
  you had to hit the planks into place.  This time, hit the right one so it
  goes left.  Then hop on it.
  • Follow the path to the cave exit.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #5 ***
  • You will get this at the end of the cave.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Either go to the cave entrance, or wait until you are on Lagoon Pier to use
  the bus stop.  Change to Patrick and get back to the cave exit area.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #3 ***
  • Use the Freeze Fruit and go to the island after the cave exit. Throw the
  fruit into the water and turn left.  The sock is behind some stone
  structures.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Head through the exit and enter Lagoon Pier

  • At the bus stop, change to Patrick (if you aren't already him) and chat with
  Mr. Krabs.  Seems the robots have been messing up his business and he needs
  Patrick's muscle to stop them.
  • Go down the steps and you will see a ticket booth to the left. Grab the
  watermelon and take out the booth.  This will create a path to your right.
  Follow the path up.
  • You will eventually come to a "Wak-A-Tiki" machine to your right.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Use the watermelon to activate the game. Jump in and basically destroy
  every Tiki in there.  Your reward is a sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Continue to follow the pier around. You will pass a "Skee-Ball" game where
  SpongeBob can Bubble Bowl for extra Shiny Objects.
  • You will eventually come to a big area that has a bungee jump that will cost
  you 2200 Shiny Objects, a roller coaster, and a snack bar.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Follow the pier around until you get to a skating rink.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #3 ***
  • Destroy the Duplicatotron 1000 and robots to collect the sock. Be careful,
  this is very slick and you could slide into the goo if you're not careful.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Continue to follow the pier until you get to the Bumper Car area. Use the
  watermelon to activate the switch to make steps appear from the side of this
  ride.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #6 ***
  • As the objective states, clear all the robots out of this area. Go back to
  Mr. Krabs to collect your Gold Spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Exit the bumper car area and go down the steps to the end of the pier.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #7 ***
  • Turn right and get the Freeze Fruit. Throw it in the water and run to the
  next platform with a Freeze Fruit.  When the water thaws, throw that Freeze
  Fruit.
  • You will then get to the platform with the Gold Spatula and a Freeze Fruit.
  • Just do the same to backtrack to where you started.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • You can jump on the trampoline to go to the small island to finish Connect
  the Towers.  From that island, get on the trampoline to bounce back to
  where Larry is standing.

  involved.
  • Immediately when you enter this area, you will encounter Mrs. Puff. She
  will tell you that the robots have stolen some artwork.  SpongeBob is
  tasked with retrieving the six paintings.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #3 ***

ROCK BOTTOM:

  • On the road to the rickety bridge.
  • On the plateau overlooking the road after you cross the rickety bridge.
  This plateau also has the switch for the hook to achieve Gold Spatula #4.

MUSEUM:

  • On the lower floor.
  • On the balcony before you exit into the Trench of Darkness.

TRENCH OF DARKNESS:

  • Behind the middle laser (as you are facing them).
  • In the area where you get to Gold Spatula #8.
  • Go to Mrs. Puffs for your reward.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Continue down the road to the rickety bridges. You can either sneak across
  the bridges or just jump across them.  Once you are past both bridges, you
  will see a Sleepy-time robot ahead.
  • Once you have dealt with this threat, continue over the metal platform and
  go left along the building.  Continue to work your way to the very back of
  this area.
  • Take out the Thunder Tikis and activate the switch. This will drop the gate
  from the Duplicatotron 1000 that was over the metal platform.
  • Destroy the Duplicatotron 1000. You will see a switch and a Spongeball.
  The goal is to activate the switch.  This in turn will drop a gate at the
  end of this walkway to another switch.  Turn into a Spongeball and roll to
  that area.  You have 20 seconds to accomplish this.
  • You will be at another switch. Activate this switch to bring up another
  platform.  Again, use the Spongeball to roll along it.  You have 6 seconds
  to make it.
  • As you go up this walkway, watch out for the cannon firing things at you.
  • Continue around until you get to the cannon. Destroy it to prevent further
  harassment.
  • Backtrack to the pair of toothbrushes. They will serve as a sticky wall for
  SpongeBob to climb.  When you get to the top, go to the rooftop.
  • Switch over to Sandy so you can continue to swing to the rooftops.

_______________________________________________________________________________

*** GOLD SPATULA #4 AND SOCK #1 ***
  • When you get to the roof top with the trampoline, look to your right. You should see the plateau that you passed as SpongeBob after crossing the rickety bridges.
  • Glide over to that plateau and go to the big rock. Activate the switch and a moving hook drops down.
  • Get on top of the big rock and wait for the hook to head toward you. Then jump and fly toward the hook. Latch onto it to swing to the tall building to collect your Gold Spatula.
  • Get back on the hook. Jump and fly over to the big rock opposite the one with the switch. You should have just enough power to do it. The sock sits on the flat part between the two rocks.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Swing back to the roof top you got off of. Then go ahead and swing to the Museum. Watch out for Chuck.
  • When you get to that mountain, go to the bus stop.

  • Collect the Gold Spatula at the entrance to the Museum

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Enter the Museum.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #3 ***
  • As you go up the elevator, you will see a slide to your right. Jump on the
  slide and go down just a small ways.  Hop off to the right to collect the
  sock on the roof of the building (it will roughly be under the area of the
  collapsed walkway and the Duplicatotron 1000 that was at ground level).

Gold Spatula Locations: 5. Plundering Robots in the Museum

Socks: 3

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None

  • You start of with SpongeBob chatting with Barnacle Boy. Seems that the
  robots have invaded the Museum.  To make matters even worse, you must de-
  activate the security system.  This consists of lasers criss-crossing the
  floor.  The Cruise Bubble comes in very handy for this part (if you are
  SpongeBob).
  • From the balcony, jump to the display case in front of it. Your goal is to
  deactivate the high switches first.  You must, though, avoid the electric
  barriers.
  • Once you have deactivated the electrical barriers, you can go down to ground
  level.  Deactivate the switches to turn off the lasers.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Go under the balcony you entered and get the sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Go to the next area. Take care of Sleepy-time robot and proceed into the
  next part of the museum.  Again, you are confronted with lasers criss-
  crossing the floor.  You will also see three wooden teeter-totters being
  supported by tires.
  • You need to shut these lasers off (trust me, you do) so just go across this
  teeter-totter bridge to the other side.  Then deactivate the floor lasers.
  • Get back onto the teeter-totters and to the balcony.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #5 ***
  • Collect the Gold Spatula from the balcony.

  • Go across the rickety bridge until you get to the gap in the railing.
  • Jump over the gap and continue left. Climb up the display case to get to the next level. Go to the gap and jump on the tire. You need to be quick because this tire sinks to the ground. Jump to the other balcony across the way.
  • Follow it around to the next gap. You will see three tire swings. To further compound the problem, a Monsoon is hovering around. Take him out if you can to make your journey easier.
  • Jump on the first swing and turn right. Jump on that swing and turn left. Jump on that swing, then jump to the balcony.
  • Follow the balcony to the next gap. Another Monsoon awaits you along with three more tire swings. Again, jump to the nearest, turn right and jump on that one. Then turn left and jump on that swing. Then jump to the balcony.

  *** SOCKS #2 AND #3 ***
  • Look to your right (as you face the exit) and you will see a balcony. Hover
  over to it to collect the sock.
  • Look to your left (as you face the balcony across the room) and you will see

  *** SOCK #2 ***
  • Pay the clam 2400 Shiny Objects to bungee down and get the sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Plankton is waiting for you at the end of the path. If you aren't Sandy,
  Plankton will demand that you get her.
  • Plankton explains that all three lasers need to be fired into a central
  core.  Time to do some fancy swinging.
  • Swing to the first stone pedestal directly in front of you.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #3 ***
  • Step off the edge of this pedestal to go to another lower down. Collect the
  sock and use the trampoline to return.

  • Continue this process for all three lasers. Once activated, a beam will
  chop up some more pedestals and create a path from the area Plankton is in
  toward the exit.

  *** GOLD SPATULA #7 ***
  • After you have activated all the lasers, go back to Plankton for your reward.

  • Go back to where the new path is.

  *** GOLD SPATULA #8 ***

  plateau.  Turn and snag the hook to swing on top of the building to collect
  the Gold Spatula.

  • The first area involves a disco floor. When the tiles are red, the floor is
  deadly.  Yellow means it will turn to red.  The pattern is Left, Up, Right,
  Back, Up, Left, Up, Right, Up, Up.  With the watermelon picked up from the
  main area, hit the opening in the machine to shut it down.
  • The second area involved tilting platforms. The best way to do this is get
  the watermelon and toss it to the third platform.  Jump across the platforms
  and get the watermelon.  Toss it to the area with the machine.  Quickly pick
  up the watermelon and shut down the machine.
  • The third area is a conveyor belt that is turned off. Avoid the incoming
  fire from the machine and plug the hole to finish the job.  Get the Gold
  Spatula from Mermaid Man.

  *Turn on the 1st, 4th, and 7th machines.
  *Turn on the 2nd, 5th, and 8th machines.
  *Turn on the 3rd and 6th machines.
  • This should cause all of them to face inward. Just designate a machine as
  your 1st one and it should be easy.

  • Go along the edge of the rotating platform until you see a switch. Activate
  it to bring out a conveyor belt walkway to a far off landing (the conveyor
  belt turns in your direction).
  • Go up the path and around until you reach a paddle switch. Bubble Bowl it
  to bring down an elevator.  Ride the elevator up to another rotating plat-
  form.  Look for another switch.  Activate it to bring out the left wall on
  the far off landing.
  • Follow another path around to another paddle switch. Use the elevator to go
  up to the next rotating platform.  Activate the switch on the edge to bring
  out the right wall.

  • Turn right and run over to the gray pendulum. Bubble Bowl the bottom of it
  as soon as you get to it to drop the scoop.  A quick cut scene will show the
  ball being picked up by the scoop.
  • Go to the pressure plate on the floor and you will reveal a switch. Get
  yourself aligned to bowl into this switch.
  • You will see the shadow of the ball pass overhead. When the actual ball
  passes over your head, activate the switch and run to the stairs that are
  forward and slightly to the right.  Go up these stairs and jump on the
  pressure plate to the left.
  • Right after the ball passes over the wooden bridge, run forward (you may
  have to take out the robot) and activate the next switch.  This causes the
  hammer to rise.
  • Run forward and jump on the tilting wooden platform. The goal is to get the
  ball into the far right corner so that it drops into the glass cylinder
  below.
  • When the ball falls into the glass cylinder, jump to the next platform. You
  will see a small building with a windmill going around.  At the base is a
  switch.  Hit the switch to launch the ball onto the scoop on the glass en-
  closure.  Doing this will cause the enclosure to open up.
  • Collect the spatula.

  • Go back to the wooden tilt platform. Go all the way to the back and look
  over the edge.  The sock sits on a small wood outcrop.

  • Go through the other gate to return to the Main Area Computer.
10.7.4. Villain Containment Area

Gold Spatula Locations: 8. Defeat Prawn

Socks: None

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: Security system must be shut down.

  • Once you shut down the security system, a series of bridges will drop down.
  Head over to them to enter that area.
  • You will see Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. They will explain that Prawn is
  this all-powerful super villain and that is why he is in this containment
  area.  Your job is to basically take him down.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #8 ***
  • When you enter the area, you will be on a metal disk. At the center is a
  blocked off area containing Prawn.  Between the small walkway you are on and
  Prawn sits five rows of disco lights.
  • Your goal is to wait for a pathway straight to Prawn to develop from the
  disco lights.  When this occurs, Bubble Bowl into Prawn to score a hit.
  • Prawn has a couple of attacks:
  *He sends out a sonic wave attack.  You must run away from it along the
 edge or take the hit.
  *He will also launch Ham-mers after the first hit.  So you now have more
 enemies to deal with.
  • Keep working your way around the edges and look for openings while avoiding
  enemy attacks.
  • After three hits, Prawn is history. Collect your spatula at the entrance.

Gold Spatula Locations: 1. Through the Woods

2.  Find All the Lost Campers

Socks: 3

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: 50 Gold Spatulas

  • This is probably one of the most difficult areas. The reason is due to all
  the twists and turns one must go through to get things.  In addition, many
  of the jumps require split-second timing or you will end up in the swamp.
  • When you enter this area, go to the right and use the brown leaves to bounce
  up to the cliff.  Jump off the other side and head to the left.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • This is probably the most difficult sock to acquire during the game. Look to your left and you will see a stairstep row of floating Tikis. They are topped by Thunder Tikis. To the right is a tall mountain.
  • Go to the other side and you will see a rock sticking out of the ground. This next part will require some very quick precision moves.
  • Jump to the lower Tiki stair and quickly climb up them before the Tikis explode. You will only have a couple of seconds to do this.
  • At the top of the mountain, look toward the vine with brown leaves on it. Jump to those leaves and climb up to the cliff. At the top is a sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Come down off the cliff and you will see a row of Shhh Tikis in a row (There
  are seven of them).

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #2 ***
  • Get ready to Bubble Bowl. The goal is to bowl down the entire line of Shhh
  Tikis and destroy them in one shot.  Doing so will cause a sock to appear
  over the rock next to the vines.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Go up past the Check Point and chat with Mrs. Puff. She will state that due
  to the robot invasion, six campers have become lost.  She wants SpongeBob to
  find those lost campers.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #2 ***

The lost campers are located at:

KELP FOREST:

  • On the mountain to the right of the porta-potty.
  • On the mountain overlooking the waterfall at the end of the area.
  • On the mountain overlooking the flat land after you enter the area.

KELP SWAMP:

  • There is a camper located in each area on either side of the swamp.

KELP CAVES:

  • Located in on the ledge before you enter the final cave with the spatula
  (you must go up the steps).
  • Return to Mrs. Puff for your reward.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Go left from Mrs. Puff and go around the vine covered bridge. You will see a small island. Jump to it then use the brown leaves to get onto the bridge.
  • Go to the end of the bridge overlooking Mrs. Puff and activate the switch.
  This will cause a vine to rise in the small water hole behind the picnic
  table.  You will use this route later with Patrick to retrieve the campers.
  • Become Patrick and head over to the outcrop that has four Thunder Tikis in a
  row.  Set them off and jump down to the dry land below.
  • Look across the water and you will see a small rock with a Freeze Fruit on

it.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #3 ***
  • Toss the Freeze Fruit into the water and head over to the waterfall. Pick
  up the sock at the base of the waterfall.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Head back to the top via the brown leaves and go to the gate that takes you
  into Kelp Swamp.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #1 ***
  • Collect the Gold Spatula before you exit this area.

Kelp Swamp

Gold Spatula Locations: 3. Tiki Roundup

4.  Down in the Swamp

Socks: 2

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None

  • This area will involve precision jumps on small platforms or you will become
  a floater real fast.
  • Enter the area and jump to the flat rock, then jump to the area Mr. Krabs is
  at.  He will tell SpongeBob to find Patrick because he has a job for him.
  Before getting Patrick, clear the area of enemies using the Cruise Bubble.
  It will make it that much easier to get around.
  • In addition, turn back toward the area you entered and look to the left
  toward a ledge (next to the G-love).  There is a switch on the wall.
  Activate it to cause a vine to rise, in the main part of the swamp, next to
  the cliff face.
  • Go the bus stop and change into Patrick then go back to Mr. Krabs. He wants
  Patrick to round up some Stone Tikis and put them on the ground switches so
  that access can be made to the walkway above.
  • The best way to do this tasking will be to basically go the perimeter of the
  swamp.  This part of the walkthrough will be done a little differently to
  reflect this.
  • Turn around and head back toward the entrance to Kelp Forest. Jump on top
  of the stone pedestal.  Then jump to the brown leaf at the path on the
  other side.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Go to the very edge of the leaf and bounce. When you are at your highest point, jump. When you get to the height of the gray wall, jump again while bearing to the right and you will land on the ledge that had the G-love.
  • Move around that ledge to another brown leaf. Use it to bounce to the next ledge to the right. Collect the sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Jump on the brown leaf and it will bounce you to a shoreline with a G-love.
  Head up into that area and you may confront a Sleep-time robot.  After
  clearing it out, go all the way to the back for the camper.
  • Go to the clam and pay 2600 Shiny Objects to open the gate. Head along that
  path until you reach the water on the other side.  A brown leaf sits ready
  for bouncing.  A cut scene will also show a hook dropping down next to a
  mountain sitting next to a waterfall.
  • Jump to that leaf and go to the edge. Jump to the next leaf and to the
  cliff.  Turn right and jump to the next cliff.  Continue to do this as you
  work your way around this part of the swamp.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #2 ***
  • At the end of these ledges a sock awaits.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Jump back to the first mountain you started on and now head toward the
  mountain that had the Arf robot on it.  Use the brown leaves to get to the
  mountain where the Duplicatotron 1000 was located at and you will see a
  Stone Tiki.  Toss it down to the switches below and drop down to place it on
  one of the switches.
  • Head back to the Kelp Forest exit and jump on the stone platform again.
  This time, jump to the right and head along the path.  If you go left, you
  get another camper.
  • Head to the right until you get to the water. Look to your left and you
  will see a small beach with a button and a Freeze Fruit.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #4 ***
  • Jump on the switch to start the timer at 30 seconds. It will show you where
  you need to go.  Then toss the Freeze Fruit in the water to start the 18
  second timer.
  • Run across the ice to get the spatula. You should just make it in time.
  Use the Freeze Fruit here to go back to where you started.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Go back to the ledge that leads to the back to the cave. Go left and get on
  the brown leaf to go up to the next ledge.
  • Grab the Stone Tiki and walk onto the brown leaf. Face right and bounce to
  that leaf.  Then bounce back onto the area that has the ground switches.
  Put the Stone Tiki onto the switch.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #3 ***
  • Grab the Stone Tiki from next to Mr. Krabs and put it on the final ground
  switch.  Access will then be gained to the upper walkway.  Grab the Gold
  Spatula.

NOTE: An alternative method is to use the Stone Tiki by Mr. Krabs and the one by the cardboard box. Stack them on top of each other on the right ground switch. Then just jump on them and onto the walkway.

  • Take out the Tar-tar and go through the gate to Kelp Caves.
10.8.2. Kelp Caves

Gold Spatula Locations: 5. Through the Kelp Caves

6.  Power Crystal Crisis

Socks: 1

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None

  • This area will involve a lot of backtracking and precision tracking with
  the Cruise Bubble.
  • You will first meet up with Barnacle Boy. He will explain that six Power
  Crystals are scattered throughout the cave and wants SpongeBob to recover
  them.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #6 ***
  • From the first cave to the left. Ground switch must be activated to raise
  the vine.

  • Collect Gold Spatula from Barnacle Boy.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • As SpongeBob, stand on the pressure plate and activate the first switch.
  Go back and switch to Patrick.
  • Go into the first cave on the left and use the Stone Tiki to activate the
  vine.  Go back and switch to SpongeBob.
  • Go into that cave and climb the vine. Stand on the pressure plate and it
  will show you the switch to activate with your Cruise Bubble.
  • Continue on through the caves until you reach the third cave. Look to the
  ledge and stand on the pressure plate to activate the switch with your
  Cruise Bubble.
  • Go through the gate into the big cave. Go to the right and up the steps.
  Stand on the pressure plate and a switch high on the mountain will be
  revealed.  Activate it to open the gate to the last cave.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Go all the way through this cave. The sock is at the cave entrance over-
  looking the bus stop.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Switch to Patrick and go to the first cave and collect the Stone Tiki. Go
  all the way to the big cave and drop it off.
  • Go back to the second Stone Tiki and bring it to the main cave and drop it
  off.
  • Go to where the last camper is and collect that Stone Tiki. Bring it to the
  big cave and go to the right.  There is a floor switch to throw it on.  This
  will cause some vines to rise from the water.
  • Grab one of the Stone Tikis and bounce on the brown leaves until you get to
  the teeter-totter.  Bounce over to the far ledge and get the Power Crystal.
  Then jump back down to the main cave.
  • Get the last Stone Tiki and get back up to the teeter-totter. Go to the end
  of the teeter-totter and toss the Stone Tiki to the far ledge.
  • Use the remaining Stone Tiki to vault yourself back to the ledge. Use the
  Stone Tiki you tossed over and toss it on the ground switch.  This causes a
  vine to rise in the last cave.
  • Go back and change to SpongeBob and go back to that last cave. Jump on the
   vine to get to the pressure plate.   Activate the last switch to open the
  gate to leave the caves and enter Kelp Vines.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #5 ***

10.8.3. Kelp Vines

Gold Spatula Locations: 7. Kelp Vine Slide

8.  Beat Mermaid Man's Time

Socks: 1

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None

  • This is probably one of the hardest slides to navigate due to it being
  narrow and the turns being very tight.
  • You will meet Mermaid Man at the top of the slide. He will challenge
  SpongeBob to beat his time of 1:41.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #8 ***
  • After beating Mermaid Man's time, return for your reward.

  • After you get to the checkpoint, you will wind right on the path. Look to
  your left to see a brown leaf sitting up higher.  Jump up to that brown
  leaf.
  • You will be vaulted to a higher slide. Follow this slide around and after
  the first jump, you will collect the sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Socks: None

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None

  • Some real precision jumping and the longest slide await your entrance into
  this area.
  • You start out on a platform. In front of you are a series of moving boxes.
  These boxes have spikes on some of the sides so you will have to watch them
  to time your jumps accordingly.
  • Once you get to that next platform, you can go one of two ways. Let's go
  left first.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #1 ***
  • You collect this when you go past everyone's dreams. Jump to it after you
  finish Patrick's dream.

_______________________________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #2 ***
  • This tasking will require some coordination. First, hit the paddle with a
  Bubble Bowl to release the beach ball.
  • Follow the beach ball closely down the wooden ramp. Don't follow too
  closely or you will knock it off the ramp.
  • Ahead, you will see a Gold Spatula suspended in mid-air. Your goal is to
  let the beach ball get close to that spatula.  Then, jump on the beach
  ball.  Use the added height and double jump up to the spatula.  Success
  gets you a Gold Spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Return to the platform and now go right down the slide. It will end at
  the entrance to Sandy's Dream.  You can also pay the clam 1000 Shiny Objects
  to have access to Squidward's dream.
10.9.1. Sandy's Dream

Gold Spatula Locations: 3. Slidin' Texas Style

4.  Swingers Ahoy

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None

  • Get ready for some serious slide action as you go through Sandy's dream.
  • Start off by grabbing the hook and swinging to the slide. Follow the slide
  and be sure to jump the manure trucks.  You will eventually come to a
  building on your left.  Disembark the slide and get onto that platform.

_______________________________________________________________________________

*** GOLD SPATULA #4 AND SOCK #1 ***
  • You will meet up with Plankton who wonders why Sandy has such a complicated
  dream.  Sandy explains squirrels love things bigger.
  • Pay the clam 2800 Shiny Objects and the hooks will descend from the sky.
  • The challenge is to swing across to the other floating area and take out the
  robots.  This will be a big challenge since the hooks are not at the same
  level or same distance apart.  In addition, a couple of robots have set up
  electrical barriers.
  • After you swing across, you will be in a huge, oil-slicked area. Your job
  is to clear out the robots.  Once you have done that, the Gold Spatula is
  yours.
  • Go behind the building to retrieve the sock. Use the trampoline to go back
  to where you started.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Hop back on the slide and continue your journey.
  • When the path splits, take the left path. It will curve up to the right.
  • Make sure you have some speed. When the path ends, you will jump. You only
  have a quick moment to snag the hook.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #2 ***
  • Swing up to the upper path on the left. Go down this slide and at the end,
  before the tunnel, the sock is yours.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Continue along the slide. Watch out for the chip throwing cows. When you
  see them, prepare to jump or they will knock you off the slide.
  • You will eventually come to an oil well with oil all over the place.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #3 ***
  • Go behind the oil well to get the sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Jump on the trampoline to continue down the slide. Again, beware of chip
  throwing cattle.
  • At the end of the slide, you will swing to an interior slide. Follow this
  slide to a manure pit.
  • You will need to swing across this pit or you will take a lot of damage.
  • Come out of the this area and continue on the slide.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #3 ***
  • At the end of the slide is a jump and glide. This will take you to the top
  of the acorn where you get the spatula.

Gold Spatula Locations: 5. Music is in the Ear of the Beholder

7.  Super Bounce

Socks: 1

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: 1000 Shiny Objects

  • This area is pretty straightforward. All you have to do is to jump on small
  targets both stationary and moving.  Of course, before you get to this area,
  you must jump on a few trampolines.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #7 ***
  • Get on the first trampoline and it will vault you up. Look down and you
  will see two spiked boxes that alternate in covering two trampolines.
  • Jump on one of those trampolines and you will now get a view of a circular
  stack of spiked boxes.  Trampolines rotate under the top layer of spiked
  boxes.
  • You must time your jump so you jump on one of those trampolines. This will
  vault you to the top of Squidward's house and the Gold Spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Enter Squidward's house to start on that task.
  • Just keep in mind that you can stand on the blue notes but the orange notes
  sink under your weight.  Also, be aware of trampolines.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • After the second Check Point, you will go in the following sequence:
  • Blue note, moving trampoline, stationary trampoline, stationary trampoline, three orange notes, moving trampoline.
  • At this moving trampoline, look to the left and you should see the sock. After getting it, you will land back at the Check Point.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Continue going up the path and you will reach Squidward's nose.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #5 ***
  • Collect the spatula from Squidward's nose.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Go back out and pay 1000 Shiny Objects to get to Mr. Krabs' dream.
10.9.3. Mr. Krabs' Dream

Gold Spatula Locations: 6. Krabby Patty Platforms

Socks: 1

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: 1000 Shiny Objects

  • Before you get to Mr. Krabs' dream, you must navigate across some spiked
  boards.  They are three wide and four boards in depth.  One side has spikes
  while the other side is smooth.  Just time the boards so you jump on them
  when the smooth side is up.
  • Once you get to Mr. Krab's dream, you are tasked with clearing off his grill
  of the robot infestation.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #6 ***
  • The best way to take on the robots is to first take out the three
  Duplicatotron 1000's that sit to the left, right, and behind the grill.
  The Cruise Bubble is great for this.
  • Then use the Cruise Bubble to take out the big enemies then get on the grill
  to mop up resistance.
  • Collect the spatula from Mr. Krabs.

_______________________________________________________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Go to the back left corner of the grill and look down. The sock sits over a

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: 60 Gold Spatulas

  • Platforms that sink under your weight, sticky walls that move, and a host of
  hostile enemies await you in this area.  Make sure you have the Cruise
  Missile or you won't be able to get some of the spatulas.
  • Go up to the Flying Dutchman. He will explain that the robots have taken
  over his ship and he wants it back again.
  • Hop on the platforms and head to the flat, stony area. You will then see
  three columns.  The goal is to align the columns in such a way so that the
  sticky walls face each other.  On this one, move the second column right and
  move the column closest to you to the left.
  • Before you leave this area, go down the steps to the treasure chest and you
  will see a clam.  Pay the clam 2700 Shiny Objects and the treasure chest
  will open to reveal a button.  Remember this location for later.
  • Go up the sticky wall into the battered hull of the ship and proceed
  forward.  You will come upon another flat rock with moveable columns.  As
  before, move the columns so that the sticky walls face each other.  Before
  you go take care of the columns, look up and to the left.
  • You will see a hole with a door above it. Massive amounts of goo are
  pouring out of the hole.  Use the Cruise Missile and hit the door.  This
  will cause the door to close thereby cutting off the goo supply.  This in
  turn makes the goo level go down.
  • Backtrack to where the treasure chest with the button is.

  *** GOLD SPATULA #2 ***
  • When you activate the switch, the cage over a Gold Spatula opens at the end of the path. You have 35 seconds to make it to the end of the path. Use the Spongeball and watch out for enemies.
  • After you get the spatula, you can climb up to where the Flying Dutchman is and track around again to the second set of columns.

  • Jump on the flat rock and go forward. Jump onto the deck of ship in front of you and go all the way forward.

  *** GOLD SPATULA #3 ***
  • When you look down, you will see a half sunken boat with a short path from
  it.  Jump down into that boat and follow the path around to get the Gold
  Spatula.
  • Exit the area by jumping on the trampoline on the other side of the sunken

boat.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Climb up the columns and get into the hull of the next ship. Look to your
  left and you will see a sock on top of a mast.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • There are a couple of ways to get the sock:
  *First, use SpongeBob and jump to the horizontal pole.  Then carefully go
 to where the mast is to collect the sock.
  *Return with Sandy (after you have completed everything else) and just
 jump and hover to the sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Continue past the flat rock and you will enter the third area of columns.
  Again, manipulate them so you can proceed up the wall and go to the next
  area.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #1 ***
  • Collect the Gold Spatula that's on top of the tallest column.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Head into the next area.
10.10.1. Graveyard of Ships

Gold Spatula Locations: 4. Top of the Stack of Ships

5.  Shipwreck Bungee

Socks: 1

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None


  • You will meet Squidward at the entrance. He will give you words of
  encouragement.
  • Get past the enemy robot and the Tikis and look to your left to the
  floating platforms.  These platforms, unfortunately, can't handle too
  much weight.  In other words, if you stand on them too long, they will sink
  into the goo.  So you must be quick jumping on them.
  • Jump three platforms and you will be on a small island. Jump three more and
  you will be at a sticky wall.  Change to SpongeBob is you aren't using him
  already.
  • Climb the sticky wall and go to the bus stop. Change to Sandy a head back
  down to where you first were when you climbed the sticky wall.
  • Time to do some swinging. You will have to navigate through four hooks to
  get to the other side.  Some of the hooks require you to jump and hover to
  get to them.
  • You will end up on the wreckage of one of the ships.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Go to the edge of this ship and turn around. Carefully walk backwards to fall off and immediately go forward. You will be rewarded with a sock.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Hover over to the next platform and change to SpongeBob at the bus stop and turn toward the sticky wall.
  • You will notice that this sticky wall has an added challenge. The center portion comes in and out. You must climb this sticky wall before the center portion comes out far enough to push you off.
  • Go around the deck and you will reach a Check Point. You will see a ship with sails on either side.
  • The sails of this ship will serve as a sticky wall. Instead of going up, however, you must go forward. This will take some practice. Just bounce diagonally into the wall, when you bounce off, turn diagonally into the other wall. Allow yourself to fall a little so you don't go over the top of wall. Keep doing this and you should get to the other side without a problem. You will have the ship's deck below you in case you fall.
  • Go across the rock to the next pair of sails. Do the same as you did on the first set. This time, be aware that there is nothing under you. In other words, you are bouncing between the sails in free space.
  • Head along the path to the third pair of sails. This time, the sails are moving back and forth over the gap. The best way to get through here is to let the sails get a quarter of the way out then jump to them. Control your jumps so you stay between the sails and you should have no problem getting to the rock outcropping.
  • Follow the path around and take care of enemy robots in one of the alcoves.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #5 ***
  • Look to your right to see a crows nest with a clam in it. Pay the clam 2700 Shiny Objects to bring a hook down.
  • Use the hook to bungee down and get the Gold Spatula.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • Follow the path around to the top. Hop into the boat to enter the next

8.  Defeat the Flying Dutchman

Socks: 1

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None

  • You will meet up with Mr. Krabs when you get off the boat. Jump to the
  rock, then the moving crows nest, then to the deck of the ship.
  • Punch the button to activate the cannon on the main deck.
  • The offset planks between the ships are very rickety. This means jump on
  and off them quickly to get to the other ship.
  • On the other ship, Bubble Bowl the paddle to lower the platform. Then go
  up the side of the ship to the bow (front of the ship).  Change to Sandy
  at the bus stop.
  • Go to the lowered platform and it will automatically raise up. Snag the
  hooks and swing your way back to the other ship.  You will end up on the
  platform with a cannon.
  • Activate the cannon, turn right, and jump/hover to the stern (back part) of
  that ship (there is a treasure chest there as well).  Activate the cannon
  and turn around.
  • You will see a series eight platforms leading in stairstep fashion up to
  the top of the ships mast.  These platforms sink when your weight is on
  them so you have to jump quickly.
  • When you get to the top, activate the last cannon. A cut scene will show
  all the cannons firing on the second ship.  A Gold Spatula will appear and
  the treasure chest will open revealing a button.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** SOCK #1 ***
  • Use the hooks and swing over to the top of the mast on the second ship.
  Look to your right and you will see a sock midway down the line.
  • Jump and hover toward where the sock is. Then drop down to collect the sock
  in mid air.  Return to the first ship.

  • Go to the railing and look down. You will see a trampoline.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #7 ***
  • Jump on the trampoline and it will vault you to the very top of the first
  mast.  On top is a Gold Spatula for the taking.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  • After collecting this spatula, the scene will change. It appears the Dutchman doesn't want to keep his word regarding the clearing of his ship of the robots. Time to do battle.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #8 ***
  • You will fight the Dutchman as Sandy. The Dutchman has two basic attacks:
  • He will fire criss-crossing lasers from his eyes...twice from one side of
the platform, twice from the other side.
  • He will then go low and use a rolling flame breath. Make sure you jump
over it.
  • When the Dutchman passes you while using the flame breath, lasso his "tail". After you lasso his "tail" three times, the battle is over and the Gold Spatula is yours.

  • This is the final confrontation. This area is actually broken up into two areas. The first you have to take on take on Spongebot from the outside while the second part has you dealing with Spongebot from the inside.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #1 ***
  • You start off on a floating platform. Any time you fall you can use the trampoline to get back on the platform. Every time you are on the floor, a Planktonbot will fire lasers at you.
  • Spongebot has nine green lights on him:
  • One on each hand, one under each arm, one on each corner of its face, and one on the end of its nose.
  • Your goal is to extinguish all of the lights. The battle starts off with Spongebot trying to sweep you off the pedestal. When its hand is low, Bubble Bounce on it to break the light.
  • You will basically need to use the Cruise Bubble to put out the other lights. After three hits, Spongebot goes inert and Planktonbot attacks until Spongebot recharges.
  • The second round of three hits has Spongebot trying to karate chop you off the platforms. Three more hits makes it inert and Planktonbot attacks.
  • The third round of three hits has Spongebot aggressively using the Kaw-Raw-Tae move to basically cause the platform to spin you off. This one is the roughest to keep on the platforms with. After three more hits, the Spongebot goes inert and you collect a spatula.
10.11.1. Chum Bucket Lab Part 2

Gold Spatula Locations: 2. The Small Shall Rule...or Not

Socks: None

Gold Spatulas or Shiny Objects to Access: None

  • The basic gist of this area is to jump to platforms and destroy the fuses on remote platforms. You will also be attacked by Planktonbot on each of these platforms. Hit it with a Cruise Bubble to cut down on his harassment.
  • When you get to the top level platforms, you must deliver a Cruise Bubble in each of the holes in the Spongebot brain and destroy the fuses to put the robot out of commission for good.
  • The closing scene shows the Spongebot falling apart.
  • Plankton will act remorseful for the trouble he has caused. Of course, we know he will be back to cause more trouble.

_______________________________________________________________________________

  *** GOLD SPATULA #2 ***
  • You will collect this when you destroy the Spongebot permanently

12. Conclusion

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle of Bikini Bottom is both a challenging and frustrating game. Even with that, though, it is a fun game. It plays just like a cartoon with the cutscenes and it is you who is responsible for the action. I guess you have to be a fan of the series to appreciate the game and get some of its "inside" jokes. This game is definitely a delight and I can see how it would aid in developing hand-eye coordination. Although geared mostly to children, I'm sure a few adults would enjoy playing this game...I know I did. This guide, though, was a lot of fun to write and I hope you get as much enjoyment out of reading it. If you do have other ideas or thoughts, please e-mail me and share them. Who knows, maybe I'll start a Q&A chapter in this guide if enough people ask the same questions. Anyway, thank you again for reading this guide.

    The robots from this game make a cameo in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game as garbage, meaning that SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy succeeded in defeating them all. This further drives in the idea that The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game is a sequel to Battle for Bikini Bottom.
  • Mr. Krabs and Mermaid Man are the only two characters not voiced by their original actors, Clancy Brown and Ernest Borgnine, and are instead both voiced by Joe Whyte.
  • If SpongeBob has already unlocked the movie theater and asks the ticket booth man, he will ask what movies are currently playing. One of the movies is Carp Wars, a reference to Star Wars.
  • In Squidward's Tiki, there are several paintings featured. The painting on the easel is a cartoon looking bowl of fruit, which could be in reference to the painting from 1599 called Basket of Fruit. There is also a painting to the right of it that is a reference to the "Skodwarde" meme image.
  • Many gameplay aspects, primarily the act of collecting things to progress and sliding sections, were obviously inspired by the likes of Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie, renowned 3D platformers of that era.
  • This game introduces a brand new villain to Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy, Prawn, who they consider to be their "arch nemesis" and "worse than Man Ray, Atomic Flounder, and the Dirty Bubble." He has never been seen in any episode to date since then. This is surprising considering this game made was very early on in the series yet he has still never been brought back up. But this could be because he resembles Plankton in a lot of ways, so the audience may get the two confused. Also, he has been contradicted by Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy restating in future episodes that the Dirty Bubble is their #1 nemesis.
  • When SpongeBob enters the Krusty Krab, if the player looks out the front window, Mr. Krabs (who was standing right outside the KK) is nowhere to be seen. Additionally, a mime (who is absent if the player is outside) can be seen pressing itself against said window. The same is seen at Sandy's treedome, with Patrick and Sandy visible inside, while not present outside the domain.
  • The maximum amount of shiny objects the player can hold up to is 99,999.
    Spongebob 103003 01
  • In the Treedome level when SpongeBob becomes dehydrated has become a popular internet meme which is considered to be named "Spengebab."
  • In the PC version of this game, when one of the robots throws a crumpled up piece of paper at Plankton, Plankton says, "You *dolphin chirp* robots!" This may have been a reference to the episode "Sailor Mouth."

PC Demo

  • The PC version came as a demo on the SpongeBob Goes Prehistoric DVD.
  • At some point in June 5, 2005 this video game and Breakin' Da Rules were released in a bundle called the Double Pack Volume 2
  • In Sandy's dream, if the player talks to Larry Lobster after the player completes the slide, he asks the player to come and work out with him in his dream bubble, implying that Larry may have a crush on Sandy.
  • In Sandy's dream, all the platforms the player can stand on, except the giant acorn, are shaped like Texas.
  • Many songs from this game's soundtrack have since been recycled into other SpongeBob games, most notably SpongeBob's Truth or Square.
Ataria 2600 controller made out of sand

Atari 2600 controller made out of sand

  • In Goo Lagoon, there is a hidden Atari 2600 controller made of sand that can be found near the giant sand castle.
  • There was a demo-movie for this game on the Mario game Mario Kart: Double Dash!! bonus disc.
  • This game also is known to be the "Best SpongeBob Game" content-wise as well.
  • This game has lots of unused content that was never used in the final game that still remains in the game files. In the early trailers, you can see some of the used content.

For more information visit the page on TCRF - SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom
  • This game was released on Lux Interior's 57th birthday.
  • The Xbox version has some leftovers from Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights, another game Heavy Iron Studios developed, as Battle for Bikini Bottom was based on the source code for said game.
  • The PlayStation 2 version of this game would later be bundled with The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game in the Happy Squared Double Pack, which was released on March 3, 2009. Which ironically, the double pack's name is similar to Heavy Iron's canceled SpongeBob game: Happiness Squared.
  • When compared to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions, the GameCube version has dimmer lighting, a lower framerate in some of the levels, some details removed, and scaled down textures, due to GameCube discs having less space than PlayStation 2 and Xbox discs (which are DVDs).
    • A similar thing occurs in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (video game).
    • The PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions also have a fireworks sound play upon acquisition of a golden spatula or sock, whereas the GameCube version does not.
  • The PS2, GameCube, and Xbox versions have the same gameplay, while the GameBoy Advance and PC versions each have their own gameplay style.
  • If the player goes into the Rock Bottom Museum for the first time as Sandy instead of SpongeBob, and completes the "Plundering Robots in the Museum" mission as that character, Barnacle Boy will not mention his son.
  • This is Bubble Buddy's second appearance.
  • Ways to get Patrick's socks:
    • In SpongeBob's Library, use the beach ball to get enough height to press the button near the exit. Then, some platforms will appear. Use the springboard to bounce up to them and jump up to the sock
    • The first time you talk to Patrick, there will be a sock on his foot. Grab it once you're done talking to him.
    • In Patrick's House, destroy the sand couch with SpongeBob's spin attack, and a sock will appear.

    • Ex. Jellyfish Fields, you can see Spongebob, Squidward and Patrick's house, Downtown Bikini Bottom, etc.
    • You can see almost see Downtown Bikini Bottom in the beginning of Goo Lagoon.
    • The list goes on.

Episode references

This game makes many references to the show, to the point where it's extremely likely the developers watched several episodes for inspiration when both writing the script and designing the gameplay.

  • In the episode "Neptune's Spatula," there is a golden spatula in a museum exhibit, which SpongeBob pulls out with ease. In the game, there are many golden spatulas in the levels, which SpongeBob and friends earn by completing certain tasks. Plus, the stadium where King Neptune and SpongeBob had a cook-off is also where SpongeBob and Patrick fight Robo-Sandy.
  • In the episode "Plankton!," Plankton offers SpongeBob a golden spatula.
  • At the Poseidome, when Robo-Sandy appeared, Patrick said "It's a Giraffe!" ("Bubblestand").
  • In the Treedome section of the game, the player can clearly see that SpongeBob is dehydrated due to him being a sea creature. This also happened in "Tea at the Treedome" and "Squirrel Jokes."
  • The level 'Mermalair,' is based on the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III." The mini-boss battle is also a reference to the episode, in which Prawn was released and imprisoned in a similar experience that Man Ray was.
  • In the episode "Prehibernation Week," SpongeBob and Sandy go to the Industrial Park, in which SpongeBob melted after taking the course. In the game, the Industrial Park is where SpongeBob and Sandy go to fight Robo-Patrick.
  • In the episode "Club SpongeBob," SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward were stranded in a kelp forest. In the game, the same kelp forest serves as a level, but the field wasn't completely covered in kelp. Instead, there are open spaces in the level where the player can explore.
  • In the episode "Sleepy Time," SpongeBob traverses around the dream realm to visit some of his friends' dreams. The level 'SpongeBob's Dream' is based on the episode, in which SpongeBob has to enter his friends' dreams in order to get Golden Spatulas and to reach Patrick's Dream.
  • On the design of SpongeBot SteelPants, he has rocket jets for legs, similar to how SpongeBob blasted off in the water when he was picked as hall monitor in the episode "Hall Monitor." Plus, the first form of Robo-SpongeBob is similar to when SpongeBob puts on his karate gear in various episodes like "Karate Choppers," or "No Weenies Allowed."
    • Also, SpongeBot's design is sort of like the Design of SpongeTron due with the Jet flames.
  • When SpongeBot SteelPants is defeated for the first time, Robo-Plankton will repair him into a form similar to when SpongeBob got Anchor Arms in "MuscleBob BuffPants." Also, during the Goo Lagoon scene, the Juice Bar from the same episode is seen.
  • As SpongeBot SteelPants grows due to Robo-Plankton's repairs, Patrick thinks that he's shrinking. This is a reference to the episodes "Suds" and "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV."
  • If SpongeBob approaches the vending machine in the first parts of the level Rock Bottom, a bus will arrive and then leave again. This is based on SpongeBob's failed attempts to get on the bus in "Rock Bottom."
    • Upon entering the Rock Bottom Museum, the player can see that the paintings are actually episode frames from various SpongeBob episodes.
  • If the player falls into a pit or goes to a restricted area long enough, Hans will come out and will take the player out of the danger. Similarly, in the episode "Suds," when SpongeBob (and Patrick) are about to get their treatments, Hans comes out and takes them to their treatments.
  • Bubble Buddy appears in the game, making this his second appearance since his debut episode.
    • Bubble Buddy also appears in the episode "Bubble Buddy Returns" making it his third appearance.
    • When SpongeBob encounters Bubble Buddy for the first time, Bubble Buddy says SpongeBob must learn all of his Bubble Moves if he's planning to "travel to the 9th dimension, and defeat the giant monkey man." Patrick practically says exactly the same thing in "Big Pink Loser."
    • When the player defeats the robots in the Rock Bottom Museum, Bubble Buddy says "I think it's time for a victory screech!" Then, he and SpongeBob do one. This is a reference to "The Algae's Always Greener" and "Club SpongeBob."
  • When the player returns 10 socks to Patrick, he says "Here's your golden backscratcher," to which SpongeBob replies "Spatula," and Patrick retorts "I don't speak Italian." This line was used in "Wormy." The only difference is that it's said by SpongeBob instead of Patrick.
  • When the player goes down a slope while playing as SpongeBob, he will go down on his tongue, and Sandy goes down on a clam, just like in the Sand Mountain scene in "Prehibernation Week."
    • SpongeBob also crashes into a sandman in the episode, just like how the player has to crash into 8 sandmen along the slope to get one of Patrick's socks.
  • In the episode "Hooky," SpongeBob gets his pants caught on a fishing hook. In some points of the game, SpongeBob can bungee-jump on the fishing hooks, with his pants caught on them of course.
  • In the episode "Ripped Pants," a woman forgets to put on sunscreen. In the Goo Lagoon scene of this, the robots steal people's sunscreen.
  • The police station from the episode "Life of Crime" is seen.
  • One of SpongeBob's moves, the Bubble Bowl, is named after the stadium with the same name from "Band Geeks."
  • In a few points in the game, a mime fish can be seen. This is a reference to the episode "The Sponge Who Could Fly," where SpongeBob saves Patrick from a mime fish.
  • King Jellyfish from "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic" is a boss in the game.
  • At the end of the Sand Mountain level, Patrick says "I want the warm now!" This is similar to when he said it in the episode "Survival of the Idiots."
  • In SpongeBob's Pineapple, the player will see the same picture SpongeBob looks at when Squidward comes back from the hospital in "Jellyfishing."
  • Inside Patrick's Rock, a picture of SpongeBob and Patrick together is seen hanging on the wall, it also appears on the information for the level Rock Bottom to show the player how much artwork the player has collected. This picture was originally seen when SpongeBob snuck into Patrick's house at night in "The Secret Box."
  • Inside Squidward's house, one of the paintings references Squidward's face after being asked if he's sure that he hates Krabby Patties, which is from the episode "Just One Bite."
  • When SpongeBob is reading the note on the typewriter, from Mr. Krabs, in his house, the player hears SpongeBob say "And it even smells sweaty, just like him!," this is a reference to when SpongeBob says "Boy Mr. Krabs, you sure are sweaty" in the episode "Arrgh!"
  • When SpongeBob goes to the Mermalair, and the first that Mermaid Man speaks in the level, he says "Is that the TV repairman?," it is a reference to the "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy" episode when he says "Are they here to fix the TV?"

Glitches

  • Sound Glitch: This glitch is randomly triggered. Sometimes when the player pauses the game, the player hears a bunch of random sounds from the game like it not supposed to (instead of the waves from the ocean). The same goes to the "Victory" theme and when the player collects Shiny Objects. Visiting the Spongeball Arena after completing the game will activate this glitch, but the player may need to visit the area multiple times and the player needs to make sure the player uses the "Press R to Go to Bikini Bottom" exit and not the "Press B to Exit" exit. To undo the glitch, save and quit the game, shut the system off and then restart the system and return to the player's game. Another glitch is if the player goes there 12 times, the audio turns off by its self, and 13 times, the game stops its animation and its hard to stop the 3rd sound glitch.
  • Music Glitch In Sand Mountain: At the beginning of the Guppy Mound slide, the "Downtown Bikini Bottom" theme will play instead of the "Slide" theme. (Only for a short while.) Also in Flounder Hill and Sand Mountain slides, the "Slide' theme will continue to play even when the player reaches the bottom.
  • Goo Lagoon Slide Music Glitch: At the carnival in Goo Lagoon, a little bit before the slide, if the player jumps on some tents on the right-hand sign of it, and then jump off at the right part of the last tent to get to the slide, the music that usually plays when the player goes down the slide won't play and the player will just hear the regular Goo Lagoon theme.
  • Tubelet Easter Egg: This isn't a glitch, but if the player sets the player's console to a certain date, the Tubelet robot will spit out a different colored flame than its original color. The holidays are:
    • January 1 - New Year's Day (Rainbow colored flames)
    • March 17 - St. Patrick's Day (Green colored flames)
    • April 1 - April Fools' Day (Pink colored flames)
    • July 4 - Independence Day (Red, white, & blue colored flames)
    • October 31 - Halloween (Yellow-orange colored flames)
  • Invisible/Tan SpongeBob: A glitch in the Squidward's dream level, where if SpongeBob used the Cruise Bubble power while standing on an orange note, he will turn invisible when he falls, and Hans will pick up an invisible SpongeBob. When he brings him back to the start, SpongeBob's entire body turns tan. To deactivate the glitch, fire another Cruise Bubble and as long as SpongeBob is not on a falling surface, he will return to normal when the Cruise Bubble pops.
  • Seeing inside people's bodies: If the player gets in front of anybody who can stay in their place, the player can revolve the camera 180 degrees, (console version only) press any button that zooms in, and control the camera down and the player can see inside of them.
  • Out of Bounds in Jellyfish Fields: At Jellyfish Caves, go near the first bus stop in the game, and the player will see a Floating Tiki nearby. Jump on the sign right next to the bus stop and double jump off of it to get to the tiki. Double-jump off the tiki, then use the player's Spin Attack twice to jump even farther and then land in the plain desert. (The player can also do this glitch with Patrick, but its easier with SpongeBob). The player will see that the player is out of the basis map. Then, when the player reaches the point of the map, the player will see a dimensional edge that if the player jumps off, the player will unwittingly fall for a very long time. Eventually, Hans will find the player and take the player safely back up to the cave entrance.
  • Dimensional Hub: Go down the slide at Spork Mountain in Jellyfish Fields. Jump off the correct point of the slide, and make sure the player lands on a path. The player will beat, able to walk down that path and eventually see a dimensional version of SpongeBob's, Patrick's, and Squidward's houses. When the player goes inside them, part of them disappear. This is because the hub is currently not in the map. the player will be able to explore the area for a bit, but Hans might eventually find the player after that, Hans catches the player and the glitch is gone.
  • Spinning in the Sky: On rare occasions, in the Flying Dutchman's Graveyard, when the player sees Chuck for the first time, and stand on the moving platform when he hits the player, it could knock the player into the goo, like always. But sometimes, the player will travel through the goo and into an upside-down sky. the player cannot move around, but the player can make the sky move with the player's control stick.
  • The Glitched Tiki: In the Flying Dutchman's Graveyard, there is a glitched wooden tiki that, if the player destroys the five other tikis it is in a group with, using the bubble bowl power from the right distance, the player will be able to walk through it and it will become "invincible" and indestructible. It will stay in one position, and it won't chatter its teeth or stare at the player the way it should instead, it has no animations. In Jellyfish Fields, there is a glitched Stone Tiki that will be unbreakable (this is very rare, though).
  • Kelp Vines Glitch: If the only visible checkpoint on the kelp vines halfway through the slide is activated, and SpongeBob falls, as soon as Hans lets go of him back at the checkpoint but before SpongeBob regains movement, SpongeBob can perform a Bubble Bowl that will launch him into the middle of the Kelp Forest without Hans detecting him. (Do not double jump while being launched, this will double the distance and the player will be too far to walk back to anything.) SpongeBob may now turn around and actually walk underneath the Kelp Vines. Interestingly, there is a lone Thunder Tiki and Stone Tiki along the way.
  • Hans Hand Disable/Overworld OoB/Boss Skips: If the player goes by Jellyfish Fields' Taxi in Bikini Bottom, and go in the out-of-bounds sand while taking the taxi, Hans will take the player to Jellyfish Fields after the second time of doing this. Go back to Bikini Bottom and the player will be able to go anywhere out of bounds. This glitch only prevents the player from falling out of bounds, though the sand still affects the player with it activated. To make the player invincible with the sand too, the player has to jump in the waterfall lake near the beginning of the level, with the spatula in it (with autosave activated). The player will be able to go everywhere, and the save icon will be still on the bottom of the screen. This glitch can be used to skip the Robo-Sandy and Robo-Patrick bosses. Note that not only does this prevent the player from getting the Golden Spatulas from these respective bosses, but also prevents Plankton and Bubble Buddy from appearing in the subsequent areas, thus preventing the player from learning the Bubble Bowl move from Bubble Buddy in Area 2, which is required for certain Golden Spatulas. Skipping Robo-Patrick also prevents the player from getting the Cruise Bubble, a technique required to get some Golden Spatulas, although beating the game's final boss, SpongeBot SteelPants does not require the Cruise Bubble, as the player can either glitch the fight and make it end early, or simply glitch their way to SpongeBot's body and hit the green buttons normally. The way to do this glitch can be viewed here
  • Shiny object grinding trick: This is not much a glitch, but more an easy to perform exploit that the player can use to the player's advantage. To perform this trick, simply go to the Lighthouse area in Downtown Bikini Bottom and get to the bottom of the area by destroying the enemy spawners. When the player reaches the bottom, DO NOT destroy the two enemy spawners in the two identical platforms with laser barriers below them. Instead, jump to the platform with the Chuck enemy next to it. Hide behind the enemy spawning machine in a way that the Chuck robot can't hit the player with his missiles. When the player succeeds, the player will now be able to grind Shiny Objects infinitely. Since robots home in/run towards the player when they spawn and the fact that there's an electrical gate below the platforms that instantly destroys all ground-borne robots, the player can simply leave the player's game on and do other things while the player gains Shiny Objects that the robots give after being destroyed, spawned, and destroyed in an infinite cycle. However, since the robots give a small amount of Shiny Objects at a time, it will take a few hours for the player to get any significant amount of currency doing this trick. This trick can be used to gain access to the concept art movie theater and other things that require Shiny Objects to unlock much earlier than the game expects the player to, a technique that is called Sequence Breaking.
  • Outside of SpongeBob's Dream: If the player dies someway in Goo Lagoon or disables the hand and goes to SpongeBob's Dream if the player falls down a crazy glitch will happen. The skybox disappears, and the player will be falling for an unlimited time.
  • Anytime the player performs a bungee jump if you go for long enough, SpongeBob's animation will start to deform. The most common animation glitch seen when this happens is SpongeBob's eyes being displaced and clipping through his body.
