    D-Pad: Move SpongeBob
    SpongeBob Squarepants is searching for the Flying Dutchman's Golden Spatula. 
    With it, SpongeBob will become the "Master Fry Cook" of all time! Help 
    SpongeBob search for hidden clues, unlock bonus items, avoid Jellyfish and 
    even feed hungry ghosts! SpongeBob Squarepants in the Legend of the Lost 
    Spatula- you'll laugh so hard, you'll get the bends!
    SpongeBob: Our hero SpongeBob resides in a fully furnished pineapple house 
    under the sea in Bikini Bottom. He's incurably optimistic and well meaning, 
    yet everywhere he goes, trouble seems to follow. SpongeBob is a dedicated 
    employee of the Krusty Krab restaurant where he aspires to be Employee of the 
    Month every month.
    Gary: SpongeBob's confidante and pet. Gary is a domesticated snail.
    Patrick Star: SpongeBob's best friend, this dim-witted starfish can usually be 
    found clinging to the underside of a rock. Patrick idolizes SpongeBob, and 
    together they unintentionally wreak havoc on everyone around them.
    Squidward Tentacles: Co-worker and neighbor of SpongeBob and a dreadful 
    Clarinet player, Squidward is an embittered, aloof octopus. Everyone and 
    everything annoy him. This could stem from the fact that Squidward is two arms 
    short of a full set.
    Sandy Cheeks: She's the only squirrel of her kind - with a penchant for 
    thrill-seeking sports like karate, surfing and weight lifting. One of 
    SpongeBob's best pals. Sandy lives under the sea in an air dome. SpongeBob 
    loves hanging out with her. Unfortunately, being with Sandy usually entails 
    the need for a crash helmet.
    Mr. Krabs: He's the greedy owner of the Krusty Krab and SpongeBob's money-
    hungry boss. Although Mr. Krabs finds SpongeBob a constant source of 
    aggravation, he genuinely likes him.
    Plankton: He owns the Chum Bucket restaurant, the Krusty Krab's rival, and 
    business isn't good. Could this be because he's pretentiously and mean, 
    constantly plotting to put Krabs out of business and steal his famous Krabby 
    Patty recipe. Plankton is short and it shows. He suffers from a Napoleon 
    complex. Plankton is made of two ingredients, 1% Evil, 99% Hot Gas. 
    |Level 1: Goo Lagoon|
    You'll start beside your pineapple house. Go right until you reach the 
    Downtown sign. Go downtown and fight the Bubble Bath (the big fat guy). Talk 
    to Mr. Krabs and go to outer town. Go talk to Mrs. Puffs and she'll give you 
    the Hall Monitor Uniform (actually a new layer pants). Next, go to the Goo 
    Lagoon. Fight the Beach Bully at the Snack Bar and go to the docks. Get on the 
    Bubble Platform and continue to the rocky mountain area. Find the Spatula and 
    go on the highest part of the mountain and keep following the bubble platforms 
    until you find the anchor. Grab it and you'll sink down into the Goo Lagoon. 
    Open the treasure chest to find the map and the information to find the four 
    oven knobs to enter the Flying Dutchman's underworld to find the Golden 
    Spatula. Get through the maze to appear back at the beach.
    |Level 2: Jellyfish Fields|
    To enter Jellyfish Fields, go to Sandy's Park and enter the Jellyfish Fields 
    Road. To complete Jellyfish Fields, you'll have to fight the Big Jelly. But 
    first you should find some new equipment. I think you find the Glasses here 
    but I'm not sure. Also, try to find the Jelly that Squidward needs. Check the 
    treasure chests for more pants and ammo. From the start, go to the far left to 
    find the Big Jellyfish.
    Boss: Big Jellyfish
    Attack: Electric Shock
    Strategy: Keep fighting him with bubbles
    Reward: First Oven Knob
    |Level 3: The Carnival|
    To enter the Carnival, go to SpongeBob's block and go down the road. Before 
    you go, talk to Patrick. It seems that he misplaced his shorts at the 
    Carnival. Your main objective is to find the shorts, also to find the 2nd oven 
    knob. Enter the carnival from the road. The enemies you face will be some 
    easy-goers. Lucky for you that there is no boss here. If there were one, it 
    would probably be a big clown. To find the shorts, go to the left side of the 
    level and take the cliffs to the highest land point and ride the hooks. The 
    hooks make a big maze. Keep going higher to find a platform with the shorts on 
    it. Then climb the platforms higher to find the 2nd oven knob. Congrats! Give 
    the shorts back to Patrick and he'll give you your trusty net for 
    jellyfishing, 'Ol Reliable.
    |Level 4: The Undersea Desert|
    First, before you find the Undersea Desert, talk to Sandy in Sandy's Park. 
    She'll complain because she lost her hat. Go to the Outer town area to get to 
    the Undersea Desert. This was my least favorite level, because of the presence 
    of Urchins and Scallops, but when I found out you can catch them with your 
    net. To the far right, you'll find the boss, Hot Sauce Bandito, who has stolen 
    Sandy's hat. First collect more items and ammo. To find the boss, go to the 
    far-right area.
    Boss: Hot Sauce Bandito
    Attack: Gun
    Strategy: Attack him bubbles
    Reward: Third Oven Knob
    When he's defeated, you'll collect the third oven knob and Sandy's hat an 
    she'll give you the Moon Man Launcher, which gives you unlimited ammo to the 
    net launcher.
    |Level 5: Kelpazoic Jungle|
    To find the Kelpazoic Jungle, go to downtown. Talk to Mr. Krabs and he'll give 
    you the pizza. Now go to Kelpazoic Jungle. Go right and jump up on the big 
    spatula-like stalks until you find two warp points. Take the right one. Take 
    the bottom path and defeat the Urchins. Jump on the waterfall at the end and 
    steer to the right. Jump on the stalks and on to the platforms and keep going 
    up. Take the platform and go right. Go down and avoid the waterfalls and keep 
    going down. Talk to the guy and deliver the pizza to him. Go into the warp 
    point and keep taking the bubble platforms up. Once you find a treasure chest 
    at the end, you'll find the Big Fish by it.
    Boss: Big Fish
    Attack: Rocks
    Strategy: Give him a Patty and shoot the Net Launcher.
    Reward: Last Oven Knob
    Once you find all the Oven Knobs, you'll see a cinema with the oven.
    |Level 6: Rock Bottom|
    When you end the scene with the oven and SpongeBob, you'll keep falling till 
    you reach the ground. There really is no walkthrough with this level. It's 
    pretty short. Keep rising on the platforms and keep going right until you find 
    the exit. I think there's a boss here but not sure. When I replay this level, 
    I'll post the strategy here.

    Review and Rating
    SpongeBob Squarepants is finally on the GBC, but can he survive?
    THQ made many Nickelodeon Shows into games and now is making SpongeBob 
    Squarepants the next GBC hero. This game captures the humor of the show but is 
    not really that fun. To its credit, the game has very strange objectives that 
    must be accomplished to complete the game. While some other websites put low 
    ratings, I want to put an okay rating. I liked the game but others might not. 
    I'm a big SpongeBob fan that might have boosted me up for liking this game. 
    Nintendo's rating was 2 , which means about 6.5.  This game, I thought were 
    better then the other Nick Toon games. Rugrats, I thought were boring because 
    the babies can't attack. SpongeBob Squarepants isn't bad, but could have been 
    a little bit better.
    Gameplay: 7.0
    Sound: 5.0
    Graphics: 6.9
    Satisfaction: 7.1
    Over All Rating: 6.5
    Bottom Line: Only people who like SpongeBob Squarepants will get a kick out of 
    this one.
