The player controls SpongeBob with the mouse. SpongeBob can be moved up and down by moving the mouse up and down. In order to shoot, the player needs to click the left mouse button. Squidward is at the bottom with his reef blower, scattering obstacles and power-ups. The goal is to hit Patrick more times than the number of times he hits SpongeBob. If Patrick has more hits than the player does, the game ends.
