SquarePants and underwater health-bar underpants is all SpongeBob needs to have a crack at this battle for Bikini Bottom. Coz pesky Plankton is up to his old crim tricks. This time with an army of big-bad bots. Some have shocking skills like, uh, shocking you. Others have giant hammer arms for splattering SpongeBob and friends. That’s right, SpongeBob ain’t alone. He also has the help of underwater pals Sandy and Patrick. Poor Patrick has lost so many of his socks that the stinky secrets are treasures in Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. This Rehydrated romp isn’t just a familiar splash of old-school awesome. Yeah, it’s got a shiny new look (obvs). And new couch co-op horde mode against waves of enemies. Plus, restored content that was clipped from the original game. Like a big Bikini Bottom boss battle against Robo Squidward. Unlucky Squidward can’t catch a break! When he’s not a robo-boss, he’s being stung by totes-jelly jellyfish.
DID YOU KNOW?
Before it was rehydrated, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom was regularly hydrated. Translation: this means it was released on some ancient console yeeears ago. Okay, okay. Maybe it’s not that old. But we’re just sayin’ if it was a person, it did just celebrate its 16th birthday. That means it’d be close to graduating high school!
