SpongeBob Solitaire Pants - Gameplay Walkthrough Part 1 (iOS)



You play as SpongeBob SquarePants. During his busy day, filled with daily activities, he plays SpongeBob SolitairePants


The player tries to solve a tic-tac-toe-styled card playing area. Then, you draw cards in the center space of the gameboard and place them on the left, right, up, and down spaces. The four corners are used as temporary storage squares. Like classic Solitaire, the player has to place cards on top of other cards. With numbers either above, or below, those on the board. Once you empty the cards in the center draw pile square, the level is completed. After the level has been finished, it’s on to the level select screen as a new level is unlocked. The player can choose the next level or play a previous one. Playing a previous level could be useful if improving the number of stars obtained in that particular level is necessary.

The game has three modes – Quest, Classic, or Battle mode. In Quest, the player goes through a storyline mode by completing levels. Classic mode is where one tries to clear all fifty-two cards, in the deck, on a time limit. Third, the Battle mode is the option to face off against other players in a battle of the minds. The game also features a daily challenge, where picking up extra coins and boosters can be obtained. If a player can’t make any more moves on the playing field…it’s game over.
