Nickelodeon’s hit city-building iOS app based on the Spongebob Squarepants franchise, Spongebob Moves In, has just received a much-needed yet spine-chilling update just in time for Halloween. The brand new update will add new characters, buildings, decorations, recipes, and in-game currency that’s appropriate for the scary occassion.
Of course, updates to the app never happen without a reason, and this time it’s because a gaggle of ghosts have invaded Bikini Bottom in pursuit of a ghoulish dish. This means players are now tasked with conjuring up a Rusty’s Rib Eye Restaurant and guiding Spongebob as he tries to make the infamous ‘Rusty on Rye’ sandwich, along with other eerie recipes demanded by the terrifying guests.
Additional Game Features Include:
New Characters: move in Rusty Rickets, Old Man Jenkins, and Slasher McGee to roam through the town.
New Buildings: place Rusty’s Rib Eye Restaurant to make seven new spooky recipes. Build the Barg’N-Mart to unlock special discount items including all new special ingredients for the Halloween recipes. Players can also add the Psychic’s Tent and Haunted House to their collection.
New Decorations: feed ghosts and earn ectoplasm to unlock limited-edition items like the Giant Jack O’ Lantern, Skull Rock and Sunken Skelly Ship. Players design their own haunted Bikini Bottom with gravestones, scarecrows, coffins, scary trees, and more.
Haunted Bayou Package: perform quests to receive Halloween-themed buildings and props like a Haunted Outhouse, Broken-down Airboat, Spooky Gas Lamps and Submerged Wagon Wheel.
New Recipes: grill up the ghosts’ all-time favorite sandwich, the Rusty on Rye, and serve it with a side of splintered slaw.
SpongeBob Moves In can be downloaded via the App Store or through iTunes.
