SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom

Could you please tell me how to get past the robot arms in chum bucket?

Games Guru: Have you tried firing cruise bubbles in the sponge brain to shut it down?

I am having trouble getting past the Chum Bucket area. The cricket keeps getting me when SpongeBob is down.

Games Guru: Let’s talk terms.

You are not fighting SpongeBob here — you are fighting the SpongeBot, and those “crickets” of which you speak are actually “Planktonbots.” I just want to make sure you have the right names so nobody’s confused.

The goal here is to destroy the 9 green lights on the SpongeBot. That should be easy because the SpongeBot is low on endurance. He takes a couple of hits and falls to recover, so you just attack him while he’s down, right? Only, the Planktonbots step in and protect him while he’s down.

So here’s the deal: Use cruise bubbles to take out his lights and avoid the floor at all costs. If you can, bubble bounce onto the SpongeBot’s hand. If you get knocked off the hand or your platform, use a trampoline and get back up to safety because those Planktonbots will zap you quickly while you’re on the ground.

I’m stuck on the Flying Dutchman’s graveyard level. I can’t find the third sock. I found one on the platform in the first part and one over the bus stop sign on the robot ship. Where’s the other one?

Games Guru: After meeting Krabs, work your way to the deck of the ship. Activate the cannon on this ship, then get to the next ship and bubble blow the paddle to lower the platform. Time to change to Sandy Squirrel. Go up that platform, then make your way back to the cannon on the first ship. Fire the cannon and you will find a treasure chest and a cannon in the back of that ship. Go to the chest and fire that cannon. Now you will find platforms leading to the top of the ship and a third cannon. Firing this third cannon will reveal the last sock.

    What is the cruise bubble? Isn’t it like a bubble blaster? The cruise bubble is the thing when you push R1 or R2

    In the Jellyfish fields, our 6 year old is stuck (and so are we) at the point when you have to kill three different large robots that are located on three different islands (actually we don’t know where the third robot is). Are there any tricks to getting through this level?

If he gives you cheats don’t believe him. He lies about everthing

  44. will i have fun and i would really like to start playing the game now

  45. I just happened to watch with my children the show “the battle of Bikini Bottom”. Generally my children watch Spongebob every day. I do not approve of some shows broad casted, however, this particular one is extremely disgusting and shocking. I had to make them change channel in the middle of the show. I think the producers went way over board. They could have made the show differently, in order to promote the fact that everyone should keep good hygiene. The topic was good, but not the way how it was presented. I hope they won’t show this one again.

  46. The Tiki is hard but i know where they are. The first one is next to mister krabs. the second is on the ledge where the robomaking machine is. the third is on a little ledge near the the place mister krabs is but you have to jump on a bunch of leaves to find it. It has a box next to it for easy acess in the future. I don’t know how to get the third over to Mr. K sorry. Also the cruise bubble is automatically given to you when you beat patrickbot just press L1.
