Quickly, hands up: who likes a good episode of SpongeBob SquarePants? Even if you don’t want to admit it in public, most of us have seen (possibly multiple) episodes of the little yellow character with his strange friends. Well, as you may or may not know, there is also a SpongeBob SquarePants film out any day now and naturally a video game will be released in tow. Called SpongeBob HeroPants, this isn’t going to be one of those film adaptations that fail horribly at imitating the action on the screen.


Instead, the game will take place directly after the vents of ‘The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water’. There has been a number of SpongeBob games before and they weren’t too bad (actually rather enjoyable), so this should fall into the same category.

In term of plot for SpongeBob HeroPant, strange things are starting to happen to the loveable character, so much so that his dreams are coming to life, altering the very fabric of space and time.

Playing all the familiar locations from the cartoon series, players will be able to go through Bikini Bottom, albeit a different-looking one. See, gamers will be playing through alternate manifestations of the locations, and they need to repair SpongeBob’s mind.

And what would a game be without a good mix of superpowers and different characters? All the folks are there, from Patrick, Squidward and Sandy, to Mr. Krabs, and even Plankton.

Previous SpongeBob SquarePants games have been rather entertaining, and this one will feature loads of challenges, puzzles, boss battles, upgradable skillsets and hidden treasure. You can never go wrong with SpongeBob.
