I apologize for that headline pun, but really, what do you expect when talking about Spongebob Squarepants? THQ has recently announced an April 2011 release date for Spongebob Squigglepants, a Wii title that will use THQ’s uDraw peripheral. At first glance, the game gives off a Wario Ware vibe, an accurate depiction of what the game promises to bring to the tablet. Erm, table. Ahem.
Players can expect to plow through a series of “nanogames” by utilizing the uDraw’s drawing capabilities. The nanogames begin to increase in speed and skill as time passes, requiring players to complete more difficult actions in the allotted times given. According to THQ, Spongebob will be shown through several never-before-seen art styles, including “Comic Book Bob” and “Pixel Bob.”
Really, it is like Wario Ware. But if you have kids who aren’t old enough to appreciate the deep psychological truth contained in Wario Ware’s odd array of puzzles, pick up a uDraw and check out Spongebob Squigglepants.
