Pick-a-Path: SpongeBob SquarePants is an online game published by Nickelodeon.


In this game, the player must make decisions as SpongeBob, mostly related to the Krusty Krab. As the Employee of the Month award is granted by the customers this month, SpongeBob must satisfy the customers while earning money from Mr. Krabs at the same time. Moral options tend to lose money and increase customer satisfaction, while immoral options usually reward money but decrease customer satisfaction.

The player is presented with two panels of different locations. Choosing a panel often results in a task, which determines how much money and moral points SpongeBob gets depending on his choices. After enough decisions have been made, the player is given a final score.



Choice tasks impact both SpongeBob's money and moral value.

  • "Uh-oh, SpongeBob has spread an itchy fungus around the Krusty Krab!":
    • Blame Squidward: +3 money, -1 moral
      • "Great! Squidward will pay for this!"
    • Own up: 0 money, +1 moral
      • "You'll pay for this, SpongeBob!"
  • "Hmm, I'm pretty sure this customer is Plankton in disguise...":
    • Serve him anyway: -3 money, +1 moral
      • "Don't give away our secret formula!"
    • Tell him to get out: +4 money, -1 moral
      • "Well spotted SpongeBob!"
  • "Mr Krabs has poisoned the health inspector!":
    • Help hide the evidence: +5 money, -1 moral

The message displayed on the results screen depends on the value of SpongeBob's moral points.
