Race through all new worlds in the new SpongeBob: Sponge on the Run game for iOS & Android: www.spongebobmovie.com/app

As we all get ready to head back to Bikini Bottom with SpongeBob and his friends Nickelodeon is getting everyone excited with a blinged out minivan and new app for fans of all ages. My first immersion into SpongeBob world was at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Toyota had a real life Toyota Sienna tricked out mini-van (cherrylosangeles @youtube) ready for some under the sea adventure. I have to say it was pretty cute but am not sure if it’s street legal! Buck Nick has been BUSY with SpongeBob with the launch of a new puzzle game inspired by the new film coming out February 6th to keep your thumbs busy.

It’s a mobile game that’s going to be available on all the platforms and is full of nostalgia fun for those who grew up with the gang under the sea living it up in Bikini Bottom! (click to buy app). In the game SpongeBob and Plankton are running to find the lost Krabby Patty secret formula through 3 locations (Bikini Bottom, Apocalyptic Bikini Bottom and a real-world beach) from the series and new movie. SpongeBob takes to the air with Plankton’s jetpack, floats in a bubble through a coral forest, racing in the Patty Wagon or jumping through his crazy imagination with Plankton! When the difficulty level increases he becomes Super SpongeBob with the new upgrade!

  • Get ready to have fun with SpongeBob in crazy costumes like Caveman and Pirate!
  • Upgrade to Super SpongeBob and hulk out!
  • Plankton has a TIME MACHINE!
  • Plankton can power with shields and magnets!
  • You can compare your distance and scores after you run with other players (iOS & Amazon only)!
  • Custom animation and voice-overs with SpongeBob and Plankton unique to this fun app!
 

The new app was developed by Playside Studios who created  Catch the Ark!

No not a star but will get to live out my voice actor fantasy thanks to the Nickelodeon booth i get to test out the interactive voice-record room with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) Donatello and Michelangelo. Well the voice-record room lets you do a VO for select scenes from beloved Nick TV Shows from the beginning like Rugrats and Spongebobs to their newest TMNT, the Legend of korra, Avatar and more! I’m hoping for Invader Zim and the Ren & Stimpy show but I LOVED the humor and voices from them. Really if I have time I’m going to do them ALL! bwa ha ha (had a Zim moment)!!! Did I mention that you might have the opportunity to pitch an original animated project for their first ever open call???? Nick’s animation development team be at the booth from Thursday to Saturday (July 24 – 26) looking for new shows to greenlight for it’s Global Animated Shorts program! I’m so excited to check out the booth so that I can try the Gif, take photos, pitch a show idea (not sure where i’ll find the time and/or idea but what the heck) and just see how the exhibit booth will look this year! I’m going on a limb and going to say that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be HUGE but they have such a great roster of shows that everyone will find a beloved show from childhood … well I watch them still (but I’m a kid at heart) that they’ll want to keep as a momento!
