GameBoy Color : SpongeBob SquarePants Details
The Nickelodeon's hit undersea cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants concerns a plucky and perky pants-wearing sponge who has a noble dream: he wants to be the world's greatest fry cook. In his debut Game Boy Color game, SpongeBob has decided that the best way to meet that goal is to go on a 2-D side-scrolling adventure in search of the lost spatula of the Flying Dutchman. The problem is that the game is just too repetitive and dull.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Legend of the Lost Spatula plays like most any other 2-D side-scrolling adventure. SpongeBob has to recover the four oven dials to unlock the Flying Dutchman's oven. En route, he must explore Bikini Bottom (his homeland) and fight all kinds of mean crustaceans and other sea critters using a burger-flinging spatula and a jellyfish-catching net (there are four other wacky weapons). He must get past a few puzzles and deal with boss creatures as well. Pretty standard stuff overall, maybe too standard.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Legend of the Lost Spatula lacks the inspiration of a Mario or Rayman title, and barely comes close to the humor and whimsy of the excellent cartoon show on which it's based. Still, the violence is cartoonishly entertaining, the characters are vibrant, and the graphics are quite good. Fans of the show might be able to overlook its faults, but the game could have been better. --Andrew S. Bub
