SpongeBob SquarePants Cosmic Shake review

System: Switch
Release date: January 31, 2023
Developer: Purple Lamp
Publisher: THQ Nordic


Of all the platforming juggernauts that come to mind when I recall the early 2000s, SpongeBob SquarePants is not among them. In 2020, THQ released a remake of Battle for Bikini Bottom – a 2003 game in every sense of the word. After selling over two million copies, it landed us with an all new spiritual sequel to that game in the form of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake. The main hurdle this sequel has to overcome is being unshackled from the weapons-grade nostalgia that propelled its predecessor to success. To be fair to The Cosmic Shake, this is a difficult act to follow. How exactly do you craft a follow-up to a remake of a twenty year old game? Developer Purple Lamp has two decades of platformers to draw inspiration from, and the one it chooses to wear on its sleeve is unfortunately the remake that preceded it.

SpongeBob SquarePants The Cosmic Shake interview Purple Lamp

Nintendo Everything recently had a chance to speak with Andreas “AJ” Jarzabek, a project manager at Purple Lamp, about SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake. This title follows a remake of Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, a remake of the 2003 3D platformer.

We discussed a range of topics with Jarzabek, including the origins of Cosmic Shake, different gameplay aspects, the Switch version, and more. You can delve into our full interview below.

SpongeBob SquarePants Purple Lamp Studios

When you think of the bigger SpongeBob SquarePants games these days, Purple Lamp should come to mind. The studio worked on Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated in 2020, and is now about to release The Cosmic Shake just a couple of years later.

Despite having put out a pair of 3D platformers based on the franchise (though one was a remake) relatively close together, it sounds like the developer would like to continue working with the IP going forward. Andreas “AJ” Jarzabek, project manager, Purple Lamp Studios, told Nintendo Everything in a recent interview that it still has plenty of ideas left in the tank.
