SpongeBob's Next Big Adventures is an open-world game centered around doing quests. By using the mouse and clicking on objects, the player can show SpongeBob where to go and talk to different characters.
This is the first quest in the game. SpongeBob must observe Gary's food bowl and then try to leave his house, which causes Gary to appear. Gary's snail food is stolen by Plankton, who believes that it is the secret ingredient to the Krabby Patty. SpongeBob must defeat Plankton by throwing jelly beans at him. He can then collect the snail food and feed Gary, who gives him a map and allows him to visit the Krusty Krab.
No gas, no go
Inside the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs informs SpongeBob that the gas pipes in the kitchen have been disconnected. Going into the kitchen starts a hidden objects game in which the player must find the various pipes in the kitchen. Once all the pipes have been found, the quest is completed.
Patrick can be found outside the Krusty Krab, and he has lost four of his jellyfishing tools: his jar, net, shirt, and glasses. The net can be found on Conch Street to the far right. The glasses can be obtained by talking to Squidward, doing the cashier job, and then returning to him. The jar is obtained from Mr. Krabs after paying him 10 dollars. The jellyfishing shirt is found outside the Chum Bucket. Once all of the equipment is found and returned to Patrick, the quest is completed.
This quest is started by talking to Patrick at Jellyfish Fields. SpongeBob must play the jellyfishing minigame, and the quest is completed.
This quest can be started by talking to Incidental 73 at the Krusty Krab and unlocking the frozen tundra location. By meeting the fish at the tundra, SpongeBob can set out to save his friends, who have been captured by the abominable snow mollusk. This begins a platforming section in which SpongeBob must find his friends and chisel them out of blocks of ice. At the end, he fights the snow mollusk, and Patrick throws him jelly beans that can be launched at it. Once the snow mollusk is defeated, the quest is completed.
At the Chum Bucket, Karen promises to tell SpongeBob a secret if he can beat her at three games of Pong. Each game lasts until either player gets seven points.
At the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob meets Sandy, who has a surprise for him at her treedome. SpongeBob has to get his water helmet, which is located at his house; Patrick is stuck in it and needs jellyfish jelly to get out, which is found at Jellyfish Fields. Once Patrick is freed, SpongeBob gets the helmet.
After arriving at Sandy's treedome, Sandy tells SpongeBob that his surprise is in the tree because the mailman was chased away by a guard worm. SpongeBob must climb the tree and collect letters in the Tree Climb minigame. Once he loses the mini-game, the letter appears on the ground. SpongeBob must pick it up and give it to Sandy, who reveals that it contains tickets to Glove Universe.
