SpongeBob is trapped in the Flying Dutchman's ship and now the ship is rising to the surface and the sea water is running out. If he sees the light of day, our soggy hero will dry out, a truly frightening prospect! Help SpongeBob get out of the Flying Dutchman's haunted wreck before he becomes all dried up.
Press the right arrow key to run right, free the left arrow key to run left. Go down thin pipe passages by running towards one and pressing down repeatedly to slide down the thin pipe passage. If you get caught in the fish skeletons, press right and left repeatedly to get free. There are four pickups along the way placed randomly:
Slugs - Slime SpongeBob with sea slugs and squeeze through tight passages.
Pumpkin - Jack-o-lanterns disguise SpongeBob from enemies. This makes the enemies think he is scary too. Note: The player cannot go down pipe passages with a jack-o-lantern on.
SpongeBob face icon - Gives the player an extra life.
If the player makes SpongeBob dry up too many times and loses all the remaining lives, they lose the game, and SpongeBob will stay on the Flying Dutchman's plate. If the player escapes through enough exits, SpongeBob is no longer trapped on the Flying Dutchman's ship and the player wins the game.
