SpongeBob Ship O Ghouls is a free arcade game developed by Nickleodeon, in which you must guide SpongeBob SquarePants out of a sunken galleon. He is trapped in the Flying Dutchman haunted wreck, and now the ship is rising to the surface. That sounds fatal to our soggy hero, because if he gets out of the water he will certainly dry out. Therefore, he must escape through the pipes of the sunken ship before that happens.
You will move the character using the cursor movement keys. You will get him into the pipes by pressing the down arrow, and you will get rid of skeletons by pressing alternatively the left and right arrow key. Some power-ups will ease your mission. The sea slugs will enable you to slime SpongeBob and let him pass through narrow pipes (otherwise, he might stuck in them). The Jack-O-Lanterns will hide our hero from his enemies. Eating the krabby patties you find on your way will boost your score. Finally, SpongeBob icons will give you an extra life.
The game can be played in three modes: Easy, Medium and Arrr!, this last one being the hardest of the three. In any of them, you will have to move really fast to avoid being killed.
