SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge

SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge is an action-adventure video game based on the hit television series, SpongeBob SquarePants. It was released in October 2013 for Wii U, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The game was developed by Behaviour Interactive, and published by Activision, whom took over the license from previous SpongeBob SquarePants video game publisher THQ after the company's closure. This is also the first SpongeBob SquarePants game to be released for the PlayStation 3 and Wii U thus far.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge Plot

Despite having a similar plot, this game is not connected in any way to SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom released a decade before this game. A cargo ship drops batteries into the ocean. Plankton finds them and uses them to power his giant robot and robot army and takes the safe with the Krabby Patty secret formula. He also takes the map to the key and the two copies of it that opens the safe. SpongeBob and his friends have to stop him, defeat his robot minions, retrieve the batteries, and find the three keys before he does to get the formula back. They fight Plankton in the Dutchman's Triangle, but he survives his defeat and retreats. The gang then fight two of Plankton's family members, who also have giant robots, in other areas. After getting the first two keys and batteries, they go back to the Krusty Krab and fight Plankton again. After he is defeated, they retrieve the last battery and find the last key under the doormat and use it to open the safe. In the bottle was a note saying the formula is in Mr. Krab's pocket the whole time. Squidward was shocked that they've been through this for nothing. That night when SpongeBob and Patrick were watching TV, SpongeBob wonders where the batteries go and was amazed that Patrick's TV is working so well. It is then revealed that the batteries were powering the TV from the outside.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge Gameplay

Plankton's Robotic Revenge was developed to be a third-person shooter, similar to Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Players can purchase and upgrade their weapons of choice. Home console versions of the game feature four-player co-op, whilst the Wii U version will allow for an additional fifth player when using a GamePad with four other controllers. Portable versions are solely single-player games. The confirmed playable characters include SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Sandy Cheeks, and Mr. Krabs. Like in Dead Space 3, if the player chooses to play alone, SpongeBob will be the only character to play.

Plankton's Robotic Revenge received mixed reviews from critics.

IGN panned the game with a score of 3.5 out of 10.

Both Official PlayStation Magazine (AUS) and Official PlayStation Magazine (UK) awarded the game a 5/10.

GamingBolt rated the game 7 out of 10.
