SpongeBob and Patrick are on a ship. In order to get started, the player clicks to get SpongeBob jumping. Then, when he falls, Patrick jumps on the opposite side. Use the mouse to guide SpongeBob and Patrick into the flying doubloons. Collecting doubloons helps reduce the timer. The time left is displayed at the top of the screen. Be careful for the little ghost. Touching the little ghost causes the player to lose time. However, the player can click to activate ghost powers which makes the player invincible to the ghost for a few short seconds. Keep in mind that the player only has a certain amount of ghost powers displayed at the bottom of the screen. If the player lets the timer run out, the game ends.
On the "Game Over" screen, some of SpongeBob's side holes are miscolored.
