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.

    is there a trick that helps beat every boss and hard robot?sponge bot OUT . in partership with the krusty krab and shady shouls send your old people her…BUT NO MORE SUPER HEROS

  21. Hi there, my 6 year old is stuck as patrick and wants to know how he can get back to being spongebob.

    • tell her or him to look for a nus stop (it looks like a branch with a light at the end) it should tell him what button to press then you can switch between spongebob and patrick. BUT if he needs to go in the cave, tell him to stay as patrick until he goes through (plankton should tell patrick to go do something in the cage)

      Hope this helps!!

    Any questions? Come to me. I’ve beaten the game and every level. (almost)

  34. to get the stone tikis to the platform you go by the character changer right at the beginning (you’ll need patrick) look over the edge and you will see a leaf…jump on it and go to the next you’ll see the tiki…grab it and WALK onto the bouncy leaf you’ll bounce once go to the next leaf and then back where you started at the beginning

    to not as smart as a six year old, don`t aim for the robots or else you won`t get anywhere. aim for the buttons on the platforms. just jump on the small platforms above the water till you get to the duplicatortron 3000 hit it and run away to avoid getting hurt. when it blows up you get shiney objects and less robots apper, jump back on the platform and hit the button, repeat this with other platforms.

    p.s. the platforms are above the water.

    dear not as smart as a six year old, this is not a boss so don`t worry. jump using the platfroms and hit the buttons (there`s 3 of them) and your done!

  50. not as smart as a six year old the third robot is sponge bob and he is at the chumbucket
