Spongebob Underpants Slam is an action puzzle game developed by Blitz Arcade released exclusively for Xbox Live Arcade on December 26, 2007.

Plot

A storm current has disrupted a shipment of the undergarments of Lord of the Sea Neptune's underwear, spreading them across the ocean floor. Neptune has called upon his subjects to collect the lost undergarments, with a reward offered to the one who collects the most underwear.

Gameplay

Players progress through 10 levels of play by collecting 99 pairs of underwear in each. Playable characters include, SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Eugene H. Krabs, Sheldon J. Plankton, and Sandy Cheeks. Levels are populated by jellyfish, who can swim away with pairs of underpants. These stolen underpants can only be retrieved by attacking the jellyfish, failure to attack at the right moment results in an electrical shock. Most pairs of underpants are scattered around levels, though several are hidden in objects such as pipes and boxes which must be destroyed. Power-ups such as a magnet to draw in nearby bloomers can be collected throughout the levels; though, some can have negative effects such as reversing the controls.

Reception

The game received mixed to negative reviews from critics due to the confusing level design. Metacritic gave the game 3/5, IGN ranked it 4.7/10, and GamesRadar gave it a 3.5/5.

Trivia

  • Some of the game's soundtrack is reused from the previous game, Spongebob Squarepants: Creature from the Krusty Krab.
