SpongeBob SquarePants Positive Reviews
Great gameUsing an iPhone 7 and it runs great. My only issue is it doesn’t recognize my Bluetooth game pad I originally bought for Minecraft. Hopefully you guys work a bit more on gamepad support I understand it’s a new release I hate using touch controls ! Anyway good work, please I just want to play it with my controller
Edit: I tried my game pad again after a few days of playing touchscreen and it works flawlessly. Great game looks beautiful. I don’t have the nostalgia a lot of people do for it I’m 29 and never heard of it, so my review isn’t clouded by nostalgia. Anyway love it thanks for the port I hope you do more.Version: 1.0.2
SPONGETASTICWOW!!! Okay let me start off by saying this is simply incredible!! This game looks better on apple devices than it does on console. There are so many options to choose from to enhance the graphics and frame rate. This game runs at a smooth 60fps but can be lowered if need be. Epic graphics on a phone port of Battle For Bikini Bottom is incredible to me! I’m glad I decided to try this out and I do not regret this purchase. I was afraid it would be a bad port but I am sold. It runs so smooth, and the graphics are absolutely insane and all for only 8.99$. The touch screen controls aren’t too hard to learn but I would recommend a xbox controller to make it easier. There are some issues with the opening cinematic where the voice acting doesn’t match up with the mouths moving BUT that’s okay because the rest of the game is so polished and smooth! Well Done!!!!!!!!! I highly recommend this to any Spongebob fan! It’s nice to relive your childhood in all this mobile glory. Well done job Handy Games! Literally blown out of the water at how well this was done..Version: 1.0.2
Runs better than I had thought + impressionsSurprisingly, the game runs better on mobile platforms compared to Nintendo Switch. Overall, the whole experience is just as crisp and smooth like the original game that released in 2003. Satisfying platforming physics and combat, nice interactions and great challenge make this a worthwhile experience. If you’re going to go into this game thinking it is a real remake, then you will be left disappointed, since it is really just the old game with an HD paint job. Overall, it is still a very enjoyable experience and I honestly think it is still the best Spongebob game in existence.
I do have a few suggestions though, one is having an option for a fixed camera mode and the other is being able to customize button layouts on screen.
Overall, fans of platformers and Spongebob should really check this one out..Version: 1.0.2
NOSTALGIAThis is my first time writing a review on any app, and I’ve had the App Store for 6-7 years! I played this game when I was a kid for hours and missed playing it. I was shocked to find it in the App Store after playing it on my friend’s switch. I bought it right away, plugged in my rotor riot controller and beat this game in 6-8 hours. I don’t remember this game being so easy and short, but then again this game was made for kids. The most difficult part of the game was definitely Spongebob’s Dream. It is satisfying to destroy enemies and collect the shiny objects. The graphics look amazing on Max settings on my iPhone 11 Pro Max. No lag or slowdowns at all. I highly recommend this game for any one reliving their childhood..Version: 1.0.4
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GAME AND GREAT PORTI bought this game the first day it released on steam. I played it all and loved it. (There was a couple socks I couldn’t find in sand mountain but that’s ok) I then talked about maybe porting the original ps2 version to mobile because I thought the remake would be too demanding but this is so much better then I wanted. There’s only one problem I have with this game. The port itself is fantastic and runs great on my iPhone 11, the problem is it’s an older version of the game. It’s before the patch with mr krabs and being able to replay bosses. If you could please update to the latest patch that would be fantastic and this will be a perfect port! Great job!.Version: 1.0.2
Beyond frustratingThis game is seriously rage inducing, This game makes me want to throw my phone at a wall. Everything looks amazing and there’s an awesome nostalgic feel but I seriously feel like they chose style over substance. Here’s an example of an unrealistically difficult level. In SpongeBobs dream the Krusty Krab level is just impossible. For the consoles I imagine it’s easy because it’s easier to control with a controller other than 5 buttons smushed together on your phone. There’s no way to maneuver SpongeBob through that level. It’s just impossible to the point that I gave up completely. And this game is made for kids. Also not every level is like this there’s just a few that are way more difficult than the others..Version: 1.0.5
Amazing.Never have I ever thought that I would see this game on my phone but it gives me a lot of emotions Honestly. I used to play this game with my dad on the PlayStation 2 before he got deported and to even play it on the phone is something I don’t think he would have even thought of either. The game is amazing on the phone. It actually feels like the game is better on the phone. Only issue I noticed is a lil glitch when you get a notification but nothing too crazy or annoying. But it still makes me so happy that I can play this game on my little phone compared to a PlayStation 2..Version: 1.0.2
Reliving my Childhood on a phone is so epic!I never got the release of this game for my Xbox one but I ended up preordering this version since I just got my iPhone 12 Pro Max as well as my Elite Series 2 with a Moga phone clip that connects my phone and controller together. This combination allows for the most epic of gaming experiences, like playing this game or even COD mobile. Let me tell you how amazed I am with how good this game is and how polished it is on this port! Handy games I gotta HAND (ba dum tsss) it to ya eh. This is a really quality and I’m so excited to play those boss fights that were cut from the original PS2 version. So happy !! Worth every penny!.Version: 1.0.2
Nostalgia in every way!Honestly the game functions as I’d expect it to on mobile and I love the graphics and layout, but I feel like there are a couple bugs including cut scene glitches. But I gotta say, this game does a fantastic job at bringing back memories. There is a lot to love about this platformer, and I am so glad to see it on mobile now. The PS4 version of SpongeBob: BfBB Rehydrated was exactly like the original game in almost every single way but with very impressive graphics. I can’t wait to see where this game leads on mobile. It has a bright future!.Version: 1.0.2
Want moreThis is amazing. First off I never expected to see a console game of this quality on mobile. Mobile games are fun.. however this.... this, is where the real fun of gaming on the go is. I wish for more like this.. like I hope this app succeeds so more developers can follow suit and release their games on this. And make it fun like handygames did. As for (handygames) you guys are awesome! thank you for this game and to your team for the time a hard work it took to make this. Was blown away by how smooth and intuitive the game is on mobile. Hats off to you 👍🏼.Version: 1.1.0
An Amazing Take on a Cult Classic! (with minor bugs)First off, this game is perfect and the fact that they brought it to mobile was mind blowing to a point where I had to get it again... BUT.
Every time I try to play, the game freezes a bit when I receive a text/notification. I think this will be fixed in a simple update but other than that, the gameplay feels smooth and the controls were the best they could be for a mobile game (controller support if you don’t like it).
SPONGETASTIC!!! Developers just need to pop a few bubbles.....Version: 1.0.4
Good but needs Further UpdatesI played the original game back in 2003. And, I recently played this on PS4. Once I seen that this was coming to The App Store, I was so pumped.
Once I started playing, I didn’t start to have problems right away. Although, I experienced crashes halfway into The Jellyfish Fields Level.
I love this game other than the crashes. And I would like some Crashing Issues resolved for my Review to be Five Patrick Stars and for my Experience to improve..Version: 1.0.2
Absolutely well!I love SpongeBob so I got this game on Xbox and I’ve been playing it a lot I found out it was on mobile and I was very excited I wanted to purchase it for myself and I was really happy try try it out I can’t believe it’s only nine dollars I mean that’s a good deal I’m really happy I finally got this game on mobile and it’s really cool it’s also very interesting and it just looks a lot more better on mobile it also it’s just confusing at the buttons sometimes I press the wrong one but I don’t care it’s really good game.Version: 1.0.5
Was fun for a few days, now it won’t openI really enjoyed the nostalgia of playing the game for the first few days. Now every time I go to open the game it gets stuck on the Nickelodeon page. I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max. My game is up to date as well as my phone. I have restarted and closed out of the game, as well as tried to redowload the game and nothing will open it up anymore. This just happened today, I purchased the game a few days ago and this is disappointing me. I spam tapped the screen, and disconnected from my wifi and reconnected. Nothing works 🙄
I only play on my iPhone I will try to do the backup..Version: 1.0.5
Just amazingI was literally shocked that it was coming to mobile. I have been playing this game on the ps2 and now, I can play on my phone! The game itself looks AMAZING! Game runs smoothly, graphics are great, and it just fun to play. Touch controls are easy to use but I recommend using a controller for a better experience. My phone (iPhone 8) does get hot when playing. I recommend to lower your graphics, but other than that, I’m just glad that I finally can play my favorite childhood game on the go. It dream come true!.Version: 1.0.2
ControlsPlease make it to wear we can make custom controls. The 2 options aren’t very compatible with how i like to hold my phone and being able to just move the analog/ buttons or even having the option to make make them bigger would make the gameplay a night and day difference for me. i find myself adjusting the camera view instead of moving the character because I feel like the analog is too small and is stuffed into the corner of the screen too far. Other than that i love this game, Playing it; i get a sense of nostalgia because i use to play this on the ps2 growing up.Version: 1.0.2
A really well done mobile port than its Nintendo cousinI’m a big fan of Spongebob and this game. I was on the Hype Train of its release and seen the bumpy development of its releases, I of course owned the PC port, very superior than the Console release. But what really surprises me is that this Port on mobile blows away the switch port in so many levels. Getting a stable 60FPS and the gift of the iPhones beautiful display. Extremely recommend to pick up and help send a message to big devs to port their premium games to mobile as well.Version: 1.0.5
It has a glitch that is really anoyingOk first off I have to get to the end and it is so hard second there’s a glitch that I will tell it’s where if your in downtown Bikini bottom and you have sandy you can like when you use the glider thing it sometimes makes you float in the air and you have to reset the game and get back in it and that’s the only glitch pls fix that and don’t respond just fix all the glitches (but it is still really good).Version: 1.0.4
REVIEWThis is a pretty amazing port all things considered, I’m playing this in an iPhone SE and so far have not run into any frame rate issues so far. This is the only port so far to have quality settings, which is a blessing, especially for older devices. All the achievements are accounted for, and the controls are as good as they can be. It’s really surprising that this is even better then the switch port or even the Xbox port, but I’m glad it’s here. For $8.99 it’s well worth the price..Version: 1.0.2
Fantastic job, just needs the patches from console and PC versionsReally well made mobile version of the game, but I noticed that the patches that were added to the console and PC versions like refighting bosses, Mr. Krabs’s shiny object requirements being lowered, and the theatre having actual concept art in it are not in this version. Will you be able to add those to this version at some point soon? It’ll make getting 100% way better..Version: 1.1.0
I want my money back.. Game won’t even openI am on the newest iphone. iPhone 12 Pro Max and it specifically says this game is supported on my phone. I’ve tried opening and closing it 7 times now and it can’t even get past the nickelodeon logo when you first click on the app. What a complete waste of $8. I could’ve just bought this game on console instead. Don’t waste your money, find the nostalgia on ps4..Version: 1.0.2
I never saw the dayI can’t believe one of my favorite childhood games has not only been remastered but has also came to mobile! In good quality too and not a knock off 2D puzzle game! Although the game does tend to make your phone hot even with lowered settings (iPhone XR) I usually keep an ice bag behind my phone in a towel and use my PS4 controller. (Yes this is also controller compatible too! Definitely worth!.Version: 1.0.5
Best game to ever hit mobile! (And all Time)I don’t think anything could ever top this nostalgia packed re enhanced mobile port. This is everything you want and more in a game, funny dialogue, great game mechanics, and great story line. As a long time Spongebob fan I couldn’t be happier to be able to do it all over again! Worth every penny. (Also please consider adding in multiplayer horde mode just like there is for the other platforms).Version: 1.0.5
Update packages require the full game?Edit: taking off another star because these updates really shouldn’t require reinstalling the entire game. Other large games work around this.
I have to take off a star only because while these updates are great versus no updates, I know other larger sized games don’t force you to download the whole game again. Not all developers have their updates slimmed down like this, but many do. I feel like I am downloading the whole .ipa file again..Version: 1.2.0
Good game but I’d like to Report a bugHello this is my first time playing that game and I love it. I grew up off of the movie game both on game boy and console. On the bikini bottom sandy can use her rose to slow her fall... the problem is some of the time she just RISES instead and I can’t get her out of the animation so I just see her rise to the top of the map SO HIGH to where I can see a small square which is the whole level map below lol. It’s an interesting bug but makes sandy’s movement mechanics broken. Thanks for reading.Version: 1.1.0
Overall a Great Port, However...They did a bang up job with porting the game to mobile devices, however there are a couple caveats and that being on the Apple TV, the first level’s performance is rather poor, could we get an option to turn off the grass vegetation for this level? Also the game is somehow in an improper resolution for my 1620x1080p TV display.
Fix these and you’ll get a five star review :D.Version: 1.0.2
Brings back memoriesI had this game on the PlayStation when I was like eight or nine years old and I don’t have a PlayStation no more so I never played this game sense and now this is on the App Store this is even more awesome brings back my childhood I am 21 now! Lol I can’t believe it’s been that many years since I’ve played this game thank you guys so much for reliving are childhoods!!.Version: 1.1.0
Absolutely amazing gameThis is a game that I’m super passionate about played it a lot as a child growing up this was one of my most loved games and when they remade it I couldn’t believe it and now having it on mobile devices is truly pretty awesome wasn’t sure how the game would play but the game plays pretty good I think they did a wonderful job with this 😎⭐️.Version: 1.0.2
This is the best but for 1 thing.This game overall is one of the best Mobile games to exist, all but one issue: my save file got “corrupted.” When I joined sponge bob a couple hours ago, and loaded my spongebob file, it continuously said “ERROR failed to save game.” If there is a way to fix this or if I’m doing something wrong, please let me know but still overall and awesome game..Version: 1.0.2
Perfect.One of my favorite games. Had it on switch but WOW! does the iOS version put that one to shame. Runs so much better in every way then switch. Great game. Thank you. Just hope it gets the new updates cause game definitely has a couple bugs. Nothing gamebreaking. Still love it. Still getting 5 stars..Version: 1.0.2
Excellent game minor glitch issuesI’m really enjoying this game but a recurring issue I am having has to do with sandy’s lasso ability. I’ll hold the lasso button but instead of flying across like normal I’ll fly straight up without being able to cancel or anything please fix this issue and I’ll definitely give a 5 star rating!.Version: 1.1.0
You need an analog controller for the latter part of the gameOverall good experience. The ending is pretty unsatisfying. Gameplay is nice so long as you have an analog controller (which is absolutely necessary for some parts of the game) and runs better than expected on my iPhone X. Settings allow you to adjust quality and frame rate to optimize for your hardware..Version: 1.0.5
Amazing Port for an Amazing Game!The game is great! It’s runs better than the switch version and that makes it a great alternative! My only complaint is that there is currently a bug with my save file corrupting on my iPhone 12 Pro Max but no stars will be removed since you can fix it in a patch. Great job!.Version: 1.0.4
I’m unculturedI have never played, watched, or really ever been interesting in anything to do with spongebob, but this game is actually really good! I’d recommend playing with a controller, though. It’s pretty hard with mobile controls! Tbh, this version looks and runs even better than the Nintendo switch version..Version: 1.2.0
Great port - The Sponge Battles OnDecided to get it just to see how it ran and it runs great! Had one or two issues at first but they were patched quickly. Controller support is great and the touch controls work fine if you need to use them. Game looks great. Definitely recommend getting it..Version: 1.0.5
Fix down in the swampI would probably rate this five stars if it weren’t for this one thing in kelp forest. The button next to the freeze fruit in the swamp is missing, and the grate with the spatula activated by said button is already lifted without the spatula as if it had already been collected. But it hasn’t been! Now I can’t 100% the game. Either the game hates my phone or you screwed up..Version: 1.2.0
Great port!This game runs very well on my iPhone XR, only a few frame rate issues here and there. Been playing with a razer kishi controller, but the touch controls are also good. I never played this game growing up, so it’s nice to be able to play now right from my pocket basically!.Version: 1.0.2
Great simplyThis game was genuinely one of the best games of my entire childhood when I saw this on the AppStore I almost jumped outve my boots I knew I had to have it it’s been an incredible experience and brings back so many awesome memories must say well done greatest game to ever be remastered after the last of us ofc.Version: 1.0.5
Needs for the gameCan you guys add a battery life saver to the game. And also can you guys make it just open world, it’s great and all, but having to be open world would make it interesting in a good way and also add more building and make it more open. And add a shop to buy costumes and or items..Version: 1.0.2
In my opinionI think that the game is really good and you should try it !! I love the art style of the environment and the animation of the characters, I like spongebob that’s why I brought it and because I saw that it looked like a good game so why not? Very well done thank you for doing this game!.Version: 1.0.2
Not sure if worth the priceI remember playing this game on the Nintendo GameCube when I was a little kid. It looks pretty nice on the IPhone 11 Pro Max and runs well.
For $9 however, it’s pretty pricy. I’m happy to pay for it because nostalgia, but to someone new I’m not sure $9 is worth it..Version: 1.0.2
Great game!!Amazing game play!! This being back so many memories. The game is the exact same as the old version and it’s perfect. Controls can be frustrating at times. The buttons on the right are not well placed. Being able to move the controls would be great.Version: 1.0.2
Nostalgic, but Awesome!!I have to say, they made some really good improvements to this game. But in the end, it’s just like the one i have played on the PS2. Brings back Memories.
I have a suggestion, is it ok to add online Multiplayer to the mobile versions as well?.Version: 1.2.0
PerfectWOW! I saw multiple reviewsOf this game and I thought I would give it a try and then when I started playing yet I got super surprised because you can literally play this on the PS4 but it’s so good that it’s that you could play on mobile.Version: 1.0.5
Good but needs some fixingFirst it loaded took awhile second sometimes of the time my game crashes when I’m doing something and it would be awesome if you would add more characters and to unlock them it’s a story mission like gray could clam up walls mr karps doble the money just some ideas.Version: 1.0.5
Straight ClassicMan I Love this game so much since it was on the PS2. Now it's boosted like heck at it looks so good especially on IOS i even laughed at these animations you threw out during the cuts scenes. Overall Excellent Game a must buy if haven't played or have ;) (no exaggeration either).Version: 1.0.2
THIS IS PERFECT!!!!!!!I’ve played this game on mobile since launch and it runs smoothly and it feels like I’m playing the game on a console and this game is easy as pie and its comedic at times and this game is a 10/10 in my opinion p.s keep up the good work :).Version: 1.0.5
I’m loving this on mobileI love rehydrated on mobile i 100% beated rehydrated on ps4 and switch and I’m so excited to 100% beat this on mobile I hope thq Nordic remakes the spongebob movie game.Version: 1.0.2

WowThis is a cool game! I really love this game like this looks like ps 4 graphics like what game has ps 4 graphics.Version: 1.0.2

OK, that's out of the way.
I love this game.
I loved the original as a kid, and I love the remake now..Version: 1.2.0
This game is good but...This game is good but I got 100 golden speculates but it said I only got 99 so I did not get the achievement..Version: 1.1.0
