Boo or BOOM is a SpongeBob SquarePants online game. It is based on "Scaredy Pants."

It was released in 2007.[citation needed]


It's Halloween and everyone but Plankton is happy; Nobody ever comes to his Chum Bucket Halloween Bash!

Well, if he can't have a par-tay, no one else can! Using his Plankt-O-Lanterns, Plankton blocked the streets of Bikini Bottom!

It's up to SpongeBob and friends to save the day and bring the magic of Halloween back to Bikini Bottom while getting tons of candy!


The character plays as Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, or SpongeBob and tries to get as much candy as possible. The character uses plumbobs to destroy Plank-O-Lanterns and cover tiles with their color to earn candy points. Each tile is worth 50 points and every house surrounded by the player's color gives 100 points. Meanwhile, the other characters are also trying to cover the neighborhood with their color. To win, one must get the most candy. There are also power-ups which can be stacked. Also, characters can have a plumbob explode on them. If a plumbob explodes on them they lose all their candy, all the tiles and buildings with their color return to normal and all power-ups will be lost. Additionally, the Krusty Krab and Chum Bucket are in the second and third levels respectively. They work like houses but are much larger and give the player more candy points. One must beat all three levels to win.
