Pretty alright

The game is fine- but there’s some issues that need fixing? Like better tapping functionality- and the fact that some things seem to break until you restart the game. One of my buns decided it needed over a trillion days to finish until you restart the game. There’s also just so much waiting in this game. It’d be nice if waiting was cut down a bit shorter- or at least some interesting opportunities to help quicken up goals. The jelly can only do so much. As well- this game introduces a whole town, but there’s very little you can actually do to explore it. It would be nice to see some slice of life- or to peak around and have them interact with each other as an activity to do too.

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.

Great 👍 game but NEEDS real fixing!

I love ❤️ sponge bob til the end of time best cartoon ever seriously who ever doesn’t know/watch this show is out of their minds‼️ Although when Patrick Star ⭐️ starts getting on me & my family’s nerves let’s just say he should be glad he’s dumb + fictional that’s how stupid he is🥴.
The game was a great 👍 idea 💡 it’s like I’m in it too but... sometimes when I go in to it like just the other day Valentine’s Day so it updated for the V day game game loaded then what appeared on the screen 📺 was like it was my 1st time playing it and trust me it’s not I’ve had it this game since it first came out and it keeps restarting + the V day update was already on it I know that cuz I played it the day before Valentine’s Day but it restarted the next day on V day it’s happened before and usually it lets me pick stored in cloud ☁️ or on device and when I pick the cloud ☁️ one ☝️ then everything’s fine now it didn’t do it and now I’m mad 😡 I had a lot of stuff already on a high level and A LOT OF JELLY‼️‼️‼️
UGH 😑‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️🤬

So I’m sorry 😐 to do this but I’m giving u a 2❗️
