Fun, But Issues Persist

This is a pretty neat little game that somehow takes me back to the days of Roller Coaster Tycoon (1 and 2). It's always a pleasure to be able to build a city and earn money while you do it so that you can continue to develop your properties, and that is made all the better with SpongeBob being the theme of the game. That being said, this game has some serious issues that need resolving (or so some of them seem to be issues). The in-game sounds tend to shut off (particularly when going to Patchy’s town) and tapping precision is not very well calibrated (try to tap a money or food bubble and either you miss or you end up opening the business that happened to be behind it). With the newest update, a glitch I’ve noticed is that after playing by the game once, when you go back to play a second time after you’ve closed out the game, it completely ignores your save data and tries to start a new game. One reviewer commented that deleting and reinstalling the app fixes the problem. For me, it fixed it for one go, and then reverted to trying to start a new game. So, it seems the new update makes it difficult for the app to reach servers to obtain game data. If these issues could be fixed, and if the land beside Jellyfish Fields (by the sea/dock) could be obtainable (like in Patchy’s town), the experience would be better and I would happily give the game a higher rating.

Ok, don’t get me wrong, I love Spongebob, and when I found this game I was ecstatic. And only after 2 days, I’m on level 13. But the more I played the game, the more bugs I found. So I’m gonna list the bugs I found and hopefully you’ll fix these in the near future. Squidward: FuTuRe!! Anyways, the first bug I found was the characters’ looks. Say I left Spongebob in his undie outfit, when I leave him on that, log in the next day, and change him back to normal, he would be all chunky and the textures were crapped up. The second bug is rents. Say I make everyone do something, and come back the next day. Only the characters would have rents available, not the buildings and houses. The final bug is Patchy’s Bikini Bottom. I love visiting Patchy’s Bikini Bottom because of how good it is. But here’s the thing. When I first saw his Bikini Bottom, I got a message on screen saying I could come back and look for buried treasure. I came back the next day, and guess what? No treasure at all. Now this isn’t a complaint but I thought I would say it anyway. Jelly. Now I have the family share thing and I can’t purchase jelly or coins, which makes it so I have to earn coins and jelly by scratch. Beside these issues, it’s truly the best spongebob mobile game on the market. Thanks in advance, Kienan_Gamer117 ,


I have a suggestion there should be a button of spongebob Dave and Judy above the checklist button and it will help you find people and it will open up to their things they can do. Love this game! Also I don’t like it when I touch a building and I tap a thought bubble and give the bottomite food. Please get rid of it. And a cancel button would be nice so like if you press the wrong button in things to do and let’s say I wanted gene to: write a juicy review but I hit the brainstorm pun button. You would press the ❌ and it will say are you sure you want to cancel? ✅ ❌
Also! Mr. Krabs kind of glitches one of his eyes goes missing and he runs around through by buildings his eyes stay in front and follows him but his body is behind. Can you make party blowers more common and when you make a cake can it be 50 for batter and everything else that is 100 keeps frosting at 25 or even better 20! Gary and barnicleboy can FLY? there shadows don’t align with the character also add more things for Gary the snail to do and the bounce house in sooooo cute I like how it gives party blowers as their rent! I would also like the watch add option back! And for more events please!
