GamePro: "Departing from the platforming style utilized in most of the cartoon star's other games, SpongeBob SquigglePants is a collection of rapid-fire "microgames" presented in the same way Nintendo's anti-hero is in the WarioWare franchise. Within SpongeBob SquigglePants, players are led through an art gallery filled with paintings.
Exploring most of the paintings allows the player to engage in minigame sequences that should be familiar to any WarioWare fan -- you're given a brief command, which must be deciphered and acted on with the touch screen, Gyro Sensor, or the thumbstick during a brief 3-second sequence. Pass enough, and you'll progress to the next batch, earning extended minigames, new video clips, and more content to use in the in-game paint tool. It's almost a carbon-copy of the WarioWare formula, and little has been done to improve upon Nintendo's template, but it's still fun."
