HandyGames and Purple Lamp Studios has ported its 3D platformer SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated to mobile devices.

Based on the popular cartoon, it’s a remake of the earlier Battle for Bikini Bottom that released back in 2003 on PS2, GameCube and Xbox. The game follows the adventures of SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy as they set out to foil a plot by the mischievous Plankton to take over Bikini Bottom using an army of robots.

The game is set across several large levels based on iconic locations from the show, such as Jellyfish Fields, Goo Lagoon, and the Krusty Krab. You have to collect a bunch of golden spatulas in order to progress through the game, which are hidden throughout each stage. Some are relatively straightforward to collect, while others are hidden and require a bit of exploration and puzzle-solving to find.

Other popular characters from the show such as Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Mrs. Puff also appear as side characters, often showing up to give you a task to complete. Additionally, there’s another objective in which you have to collect socks left behind by Patrick which are even more hidden in the levels.
