One of Plankton's nefarious plans, as per usual, has gone awry. The robots he created with his Duplicatotron 3000 failed to obey him and are now running amok on Bikini Bottom. The robots have captured Patrick, Sandy, Gary, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs and now it's up to SpongeBob to rescue them.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom consists of five locations which include Downtown Bikini Bottom, the Mermalair, Kelp Forest, Flying Dutchman's Graveyard, and the Chum Bucket. Each location has various minigames for SpongeBob and his rescued friends to complete.
