Looks good, I'm definitely picking this up... Once it drops to free. I'm not paying 4€ for a freemium endless runner.

I ended up buying it. I'm a sucker for anything Spongebob. I haven't given it a try yet, but I'm assuming it's like all the other Spongebob apps Nickalodoen has put out with timers, dual currency, ect. with a hefty price tag. I'll give it a go here in a few after I check out what else dropped last night.

Agreed. I do like SpongeBob, but $4 for a freemium runner is just goofy...

Nickelodeon knows spongebob has a big enough following, that they can pull mess like this. I love spongebob back when the first team worked on it, but I refuse to support anything from this new team. SpongeBob was supposed to have ended on the first movie.

This looks good though. But i agree this doesnt look like a premium title.

I wish that runners, to be premium, should have ZERO ingame currency that can be bought through IAPs. Like Canabalt, Ronin, Indiana Stone, Polara, God of Blades, Adventure Time Time Tangle, Boson X, and Kid Tripp to name a few. These are all highly recommended by the way.
