This game has you entering the dreams of characters from SpongeBob Squarepants, including SpongeBob, Patrick, and Plankton. You play this game from each of these characters, living out their dreams as you explore their dreamed version of Bikini Bottom. You start by choosing to start as SpongeBob, Patrick, or Plankton. Then you choose which dream to play (1 available and 1 locked by default.)

As SpongeBob, you race a hot rod in an attempt to win the Bikini Bottom Speedway Open. Controls are simple point and click with the mouse: left click to accelerate and/or use bubbles to attack, and right click to display large circles that essentially show limit zones of collision. If your circle crosses into another, you'll crash.

As Patrick, you don the guise of Starfishman in an attempt to stop Dread Patrick's schemes. Again, controls are mouse based, with left clicking serving as an attack/move function, and right clicking controlling faster movement (pseudo-flight).

And as a gargantuan Plankton, you fight to defeat Krusty Krab, all the while destroying Bikini Bottom around you. You romp around with the left mouse button, and shoot eye beams via the right mouse button. The eye beam is very much in the spirit of Godzilla, and will destroy whatever is in its path; but it must be recharged.
