SpongeBob HeroPants is a 3D platform game based on the SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon series of Nickelodeon and set directly after the events of 2015 animated movie The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.
Just before SpongeBob enters the Krusty Krab for a normal day of work, he runs into Patrick and Sandy. Together they enter the Krusty Krab where Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton are attacked by burger and spatulas monsters. First they think it is the work of Planktons, but then Bubbles, the Talking Dolphin, appears and explains that someone is using a page from a magic book to make these weird things happen.
While exploring a 3D platform environment, the characters must fight enemies (like lollipops, robots and squidasaurus), solve puzzles and collect coins and health. For a short period the player can enter superhero mode that makes the characters stronger. The playable characters are SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton.
