SpongeBob is inside of Patrick's dream. The player must not to wake him up as they jump across the platforms. The player can sometimes ride on jellyfish to move up faster, but they should be careful; the jellyfish sting the player when they take too long! The player can also go into a bubble to move faster for a short amount of time. Every time the player gets hurt, Patrick will lose sleep. If the player gets hurt five times or falls off the screen, Patrick wakes up and the game ends.
Additionally the player has to avoid touching the spiky creatures as it will hurt SpongeBob and cause Patrick to lose sleep.
