The character plays as Patrick, Squidward, Sandy or SpongeBob and tries to get as much candy as possible. The character uses plumbobs to destroy Plank-O-Lanterns and cover tiles with their color to earn candy points. Each tile is worth 50 points and every house surrounded by your color gives 100 points. Meanwhile, the other characters are also trying to cover the neighborhood with their color. You must get the most candy to win. There are also power-ups which can be stacked. Also, characters can have a plumbob explode on them. If a plumbob explodes on them they lose all their candy, all the tiles and buildings with their color return to normal and you lose all your power-ups. Additionally, the Krusty Krab and Chum Bucket are in the second and third levels respectively. They work like houses but are much larger and give you more candy points. Beat all three levels to win.
