Endless runner app inspired by the upcoming The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, in theaters February 6
NEW YORK - Jan. 22, 2015 - Bikini Bottom fans can venture off the beaten path with the all-new SpongeBob SquarePants game, SpongeBob: Sponge on the Run, based on the upcoming The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, in theaters February 6. Launching today globally, the app is an endless runner mobile game available now for iOS and Android and coming soon to Amazon app stores.
In the app, SpongeBob and Plankton are racing to find the lost Krabby Patty formula through 3 seaworthy locations including Bikini Bottom, Apocalyptic Bikini Bottom and a real-world beach. When he is not running, SpongeBob is flying past obstacles with Plankton's jetpack, floating in a bubble through a coral forest, racing through Bikini Bottom in the Patty Wagon, or has Plankton jumping through his surreal imagination. When the running gets tough, SpongeBob gets heroic as he transforms into Super SpongeBob. The new upgrade allows SpongeBob to knock through any obstacle in his way without risk.
