SpongeBob brings out his inner chef in this fun and frantic cooking and restaurant management game. Can you keep up with him and create greatest cooking Plankton army EVAH?

Help SpongeBob and all his friends make Krusty Krab’s the best restaurant of Bikini Bottom. If you’re a big SpongeBob fan, you can’t miss out on this wacky and fun game.

Show them who’s boss!

The Plankton cousins are working hard in the kitchen, and it is up to you to make sure that things are going smoothly by managing the restaurant properly. But not all of them are as talented at cooking as you are! Every now and then, you will need to step in and show them how it’s done.

Fast and Frantic

In total, there are 25 quick mini-games that can be used to prepare a smorgasbord of recipes. During your shift, there is never a dull moment as you will always have plenty to do.

If you somehow do have some downtime, however, take a moment to watch the cute Plankton hard at work! Just be aware that the game tells you that the Planktons will wave at your for help but, in reality, they just stand around and shrug their shoulders.

Extra Challenges

While the game is only made up of 25 mini-games, it will still take some time to master them all completely. If you are looking for an extra challenge, be sure to play the game on hard mode where it is much harder to get a Perfect in every mini-game and things become even faster and more frantic.

Luckily, your Plankton cooking army learns too and, as they gain EXP, they will require less help from you during the shifts. However, after completing a few shifts and earning some cash, you will unlock a Challenge where you must complete a recipe all by yourself. You won’t get any help from the Plankton and will be under a tight time restriction.

A well balanced meal?

Earning money will allow you to buy new recipes that you can master, turning them into a deluxe recipe. Completing challenges successfully will earn you decorations for the restaurant, which can help you cook better and earn more money.

However, even with all these unlockables, the game does get a bit repetitive fairly quickly. But if you are a big SpongeBob fan and love cooking, you can always master your cook-off skills and challenge a fellow SpongeBob fan to a multiplayer competition!

Yeah the gameplay can get kinds stale. For the first two nights just keep the door closed all night and the power will go out 2 seconds before 6 am. I don't really have a strategy for the 3-7 nights.

The gameplay does tend to get a little stale after a while. The camera itself is virtually useless unless you just want to see the layout of the restaurant. The only time it's helpful is when you watch foxy. If you don't check him regularly, he'll come at you. If you manage to close your door in time he'll bang on it, draining more and more power each time. Other than that, the camera is basically useless...
