Toonbarn Game of the Week: Spongebob Squarepants Fang in There
Toonbarn’s featured free browser game for this week is based on Nick’s long-running and extremely popular animated comedy series, Spongebob Squarepants, and is titled “Fang in There.” As the title implies, the game is a little bit horror-themed, but nothing too scary. Just the right kind of Halloween-inspired hijinks you can expect from the denizens of Bikini Bottom.
Oddly enough, the game (which uses a black and white color scheme that gives a 60s creature feature vibe) doesn’t provide any backstory, but it puts you in the role of Spongebob Squarepants himself, who has to run away from a fanged Patrick. Spongebob runs automatically but in order to get past obstacles, he has to “jump”, which is not so much a jump as it is running on the ceiling. There are also power ups that come in the form of three ghosts, one that gives a speed boost, another that makes you jump automatically, and another that shoots cobwebs at the environment. You can play the game below:
