SpongeBob's Boating Bash is a Wii and Nintendo DS game released March 2, 2010. It is a SpongeBob driving game.
SpongeBob is assisted by a D.R.I.V.E. mentor named Seymour Scales to earn his license and pass the last test of the year. Seymour's D.R.I.V.E course stands for Destruction, Recklessness, Impairment, Velocity and Escape. It all started when SpongeBob failed his driving test after the tutorial on how to play the game Mrs. Puff told him how to drive the right way then she told him now drive alone without her telling him what to do. SpongeBob got worried then he ended up failing. Soon, SpongeBob's friends helped him pass, but at the end when SpongeBob got his license, Mrs. Puff informs him the license is not real. Seymour got in a truck and SpongeBob and Seymour fought and SpongeBob won. Seymour went to jail for impersonating a driving teacher. SpongeBob was sad and decided to go take Mrs. Puff's driving school again and things were back to normal.
The main genre of the game is a destruction derby, with racing as a sub-genre. Players can play as their favorite Spongebob characters and drive boats to smash opponents. The main gameplay is divided into five sub-genres each forming the acronym D.R.I.V.E. In Destruction, players must smash into their opponents and collect their fallen boat parts. In Recklessness, players must smash and perform different actions to obtain D.R.I.V.E points. In Impairment, players must stun their opponents and strategically push them into pits. In Velocity, players must race their opponents to the finish. In Escape, players must quickly take out their opponents and try to survive a number of rounds. The game even features a multiplayer mode and a replay saving system so the player can watch their favorite replays.
There is a exclusive feature on the DS version that is only for the Nintendo DSi , which you can take a picture and then add SpongeBob-themed stickers to it. However, you can't save the pictures. If you have a DS, it is completely deleted.
This game is based off from a violent car combat game called Destruction Derby for Playstation 1.
