SpongebobUnderpantsSlamGameplay

Players progress through 9 levels of play by collecting 99 pairs of underwear in each level. Playable characters include SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Plankton (unlockable), and Sandy. Levels are populated by jellyfish, who can swim away with pairs of underpants. These stolen underpants can only be retrieved by attacking the jellyfish, and failure to attack at the right moment results in an electrical shock. The jellyfish can be purple, blue (these ones steal the underpants), red, or yellow.

Most pairs of underpants are scattered around levels, though several are hidden in objects such as pipes and boxes, which must be destroyed. Power-ups such as a magnet can be used to draw in nearby bloomers can be collected throughout the levels; though, some can have negative effects such as reversing the controls.
