Video game

SpongeBob SquigglePants, (known as SpongeBob SquigglePants 3D on the Nintendo 3DS port,) is an action video game based on the SpongeBob SquarePants series. It is the fourth game to be in the uDraw Series and borrows its elements from WarioWare games.

The game was published by THQ and developed by WayForward Technologies. It contains mini-games which require using the uDraw GameTablet. A version for the 3DS was made later, which added a brand new level, IconBob, which required the circle pad.


Wii versionEdit

Similar to WarioWare games, players get to play mini-games, dubbed Nanogames, in quick succession in order to proceed. Each nanogame has a short time limit of less than 10 or 5 seconds, depending on the nanogame, and players would have to rely on quick tinking and reflexes to finish each nanogame. The game requires the use of the now-discontinued uDraw GameTablet by THQ.

3DS versionEdit

The gameplay on the 3DS version is completely identical to the Wii version, but instead of the uDraw Tablet (since the 3DS isn't compatible with it), the touch screen is used. The IconBob levels (which are exclusive to this version) are done using the 3DS Circle Pad in addition to this, certain minigames may be non-existent or added in the 3DS version, such as the three remix exclusive games, one of which is named "AWESOME" (or something similar) and features a simple flick to get a photoshop picture of a kitchen sponge and a sea-star to "high five."

Metacritic gave this game a 64%, meaning "mixed or average reviews." Fan reception however varies as some minorities praised the game as being a compensation for the strange lack of WarioWare games on the 3DS while others disliked the game for "ripping-off" the WarioWare franchise, as well as the Wii version's required use of the uDraw GameTablet, which has a high price especially since the discontinuation of the peripheral's production.


  • All versions of this game have backwards compatibility.
    • The Wii version can be played on all Wii U units.
    • The 3DS version can be played on the 2DS units.
  • This is the first SpongeBob game for the 3DS.
  • This is the first SpongeBob game to use the new THQ logo.
  • The Wii version is the only SpongeBob game that required a third-party peripheral in order to be played.
    • The Wii version is also one of the few games made exclusively for the usage of the uDraw GameTablet.
  • The 3DS version was released on Craig Ferguson's 49th birthday and nine years after "Party Pooper Pants" premiered.
  • For some reason, the IconBob level on the 3DS uses the same music as the SimplyBob level.
  • The Nintendo 3DS version is the only version of this game to not be released in Australasia.

Cultural referencesEdit

  • The game is similar to the WarioWare games. Both contain mini-games that are split into sections, each of the sections on both games contain themes and a main character associated them, and both games contain lives.
    • Also, both WarioWare games and SpongeBob SquigglePants were released exclusively for Nintendo systems.
  • The game Patrick-or-Treat gets its name from the popular Halloween phrase "Trick or Treat!"
