Bikini Bottom is in trouble and only a truly spongy hero can save it! Based on The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, this action-platformer has a story as whacked-out as you'd expect. It features playable versions of SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton. When his dreams come to life, SpongeBob threatens reality itself and only a trip deep inside his porous yellow brain can set things right. Luckily, a magical dolphin grants the Bikini Bottom gang superpowers to help them survive the challenges of SpongeBob's weird mind. You'll solve puzzles, fight crazy enemies, and explore the game's wild locations while using each character's unique abilities. You can even play co-op with three of your friends!
Simply play through 15 levels, collecting items as you go (six per level). There aren't really any hard parts or confusing issues in this game, so you should get 1000 easily. There are six collectibles in each level, but they are all either in plain site, or in an area where you just have to pan a bit or drop/raise yourself to another level. None of them require a lot of searching or problem solving. The rest of the time is spent collecting coins and either fighting or avoiding bad guys. You don't get any points or bonuses for fighting guys, so it's quicker to just rip through any areas you can without stopping to fight. Please refer to individual achievements for any questions.
A second controller is needed to work in tandem in order to get into area where collectibles are located. None of these are actually difficult, so you can just do it yourself with a second controller, or of course, you can play with a friend. You can play the entire level solo, then join with the other controller for the 10 seconds needed in order to get the collectible and then just back out with the second controller.
By pushing pause on any level, you can see how many collectibles (one on each level) and pages (five on each) you have. Simply go to the levels you need items on and replay them, looking for hidden areas and hard to reach platforms.
This is a very easy game and pretty fun for one playthrough. Leveling up each character can be a bore, but you should have 1000 in no time.
