Big problem with game ,

You still there?

I used to love this game a lot when I was younger, it always reminded me of temple run but with a fun twist on it, I’m sad to see that no one remembers this but me, but just know that this game always had a special place in my heart. I know your probably not reading this developers, but if you are, I think if you added some more things to this game, it would really spark in popularity again. The first thing you would need to fix would be fixing the movement cues because half of the time, it doesn’t recognize that you swiped your finger and then you will die which is really annoying. The last thing I can think of that might bring this game back would be to add more playable characters and more places to time travel to like “Rock Bottom” or to the prehistoric area like in that one episode. Anyway, I hope you’ll read this, cheers!

Was Not working on iPad 3 mini. Works again after reinstall!

The App was not as responsive on my 3 Mini as it is on my Pro & Air 2 when trying to swipe to move to another lane but the last update added the feature where the app crashes after 1 game.

Update! (picture the talking bass news anchor)!

This just in! An irate customer contacted Nick tech support for swift justice on a game that played like it came straight out the chum bucket! Tech supports lightning fast reply called for a game removal, reboot and reinstallation of the game with a minimum of 3 gigabytes of space left on the iPad. I’m happy to report that Sponge on the Run is “running” (pun intended? Yes!) like a dream!

Now if only the game makers could be less like Eugene Krabbs and make the game a one time purchase instead of making it an endless money sucking funnel, this game would get 5 morbidly obese, Patrick shaped stars!

Some Glitches I found

The Game's Graphics Look a lot cleaner i will give you that but there are some minor bugs in the game such as the beginning where plankton opens the doors the doors dont open and when you run past the krusty krab you can see under the level plus theres this annoying white line on the right side of the screen other than that great game
