SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated announced its release on Android and iOS. This follows the successful release on consoles and PC. The mobile game is set to launch on January 21 and available for $9.99.

The original game was released in 2003, the Rehydrated version is pretty much a remake. This version was released in June 2020 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. In December 2020, a version for the Google Stadia was launched.

For the upcoming mobile version, the controls are optimized to work on devices with touch screens, though a controller is also made available.

Put a Stop to Plankton’s Schemes

In the game, players get the chance to choose between SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy, each having their own unique skill. The goal is, clearly, to put a stop to Plankton’s evil scheme as he plans to rule the entire Bikini Bottom using an army of rusty robots. Along the way, players get to have memorable encounters with the different characters of the series.

In terms of actual gameplay, players need to defeat robots while avoiding dangers. As mentioned, each character comes with his or her own skill. That means there are levels where players need to make use of a specific character to clear such levels.

Collect Them

Aside from beating robots, players get to collect Shiny Objects, Socks, and Golden Spatulas. Shiny Objects, in particular, are scattered across levels and may even be dropped by enemies. They can then be used to progress through the levels and unlock some extra challenges. Shiny Objects can be traded with Mr. Krabs for Golden Spatulas. Socks, on the other hand, are available in hard to reach places of different levels. They can be traded with Patrick for Golden Spatulas.

Golden Spatulas are used to unlock new areas, and a certain amount to fight the final boss.

So, what do you think? Is the game worth playing on the mobile or would it still be better for the PC and consoles?
