Minor bug fixes

SpongeBob: Sponge on the Run Reviews

When we download this game and we got this app and we go to this app and the screen doesnt Supported On IPhone X. Every time we keep taping continue the Game was slow. Can you Please fix it?

Hello game developer, please remove that annoying white line on the right screen.

The last time IDownloaded this app because we thought you didnt have any glitches and we thought it didnt have any glitches because it didnt have any glitches are you download this game a few years ago and when we were six and we were pretty interesting with this game so it didnt have any glitches.

The game is good. But it needs… BOSS FIGHTS! A boss fight appears before you get into Planktons time machine, but be careful, bosses have health. If you fail a boss fight you have a choice to continue, or go GAME OVER.

The game is great but when l want to swipe to move into another lane it thinks lm swiping down but other than that it is great.

We enjoy the game a lot. But there is one thing. It is starting to get easy, so please upgrade this phenomenal game. Then the game will get harder and harder. Please reply ASAP. Thanks, and am enjoying game a lot. Thank goodness for this wonderful game/app.

This game is awesome because we get a all of the cotton candy and we have a lots of sharing so l comment just one more when they get kraddy pattie we can get lots of coin and like 243 coin and we can level up more and more!

Love this game but some optimization updates would be nice, our iPad Mini 5 runs this game like garbage probably because its hasnt been updated in a while.

When we I played we found A door inside inside of a door.

Its a great SpongeBob game but it lags and we noticed its because you have to close your other tabs so it became fun when we stopped lagging.

Its a really good fun game, it would just be cool if they could add a storyline, and could play for certain roles and as different characters.

There is a white line on the right side of the screen that needs to be fixed also game developers please update the game with new power ups and make it where you can be Patrick and Squidward and Mr. Krabs and all the other characters that would make this game our go to endless running game.

This game we got a few weeks after the movie came out in 2015 the reason we rate it 4 stars is because there is one problem it glitches too many times it freezes.

We used to love this game a lot when we were younger, it always reminded us of temple run but with a fun twist on it, Im sad to see that no one remembers this but us, but just know that this game always had a special place in our heart. We know your probably not reading this developers, but if you are, we think if you added some more things to this game, it would really spark in popularity again. The first thing you would need to fix would be fixing the movement cues because half of the time, it doesnt recognize that you swiped your finger and then you will die which is really annoying. The last thing we can think of that might bring this game back would be to add more playable characters and more places to time travel to like Rock Bottom or to the prehistoric area like in that one episode. Anyway, we hope youll read this, cheers! -An old fan.

The App was not as responsive on our 3 Mini as it is on our Pro & Air 2 when trying to swipe to move to another lane but the last update added the feature where the app crashes after 1 game. Update! (picture the talking bass news anchor)! This just in! An irate customer contacted Nick tech support for swift justice on a game that played like it came straight out the chum bucket! Tech supports lightning fast reply called for a game removal, reboot and reinstallation of the game with a minimum of 3 gigabytes of space left on the iPad. Im happy to report that Sponge on the Run is running (pun intended? Yes!) like a dream! Now if only the game makers could be less like Eugene Krabbs and make the game a one time purchase instead of making it an endless money sucking funnel, this game would get 5 morbidly obese, Patrick shaped stars!

Please add more playable characters at least 1 or 2 Patricks.

This app keeps on glitching and crashing on us. Is this app still beening updated?

The Game’s Graphics Look a lot cleaner we will give you that but there are some minor bugs in the game such as the beginning where plankton opens the doors the doors dont open and when you run past the krusty krab you can see under the level plus theres this annoying white line on the right side of the screen other than that great game.

Great game. But what we think is you should make this game even more fun. Like adding more skins. You should make them cheaper too.

We used to play this when we were 5 but unfortunately uninstalled it because of quite a few glitches. The game was very fun but broken if your guys could come back that would be a blast for the past.

We were really looking forward to playing this game after seeing it on TikTok but the frames are so bad. We have an IPhone 12 Pro Max, this game should be able to run better than 5 fps.

This game looks beautiful, it moves really smooth, and its really fun… But we think it needs some fixing bc we keep getting two Krusty crabs one on top of the other hahaha, we feel like they should do another game like this with the same graphics and stuff but with more characters, like Patric and the others, that would be awesome!!! Too bad ours is all glitch up lol.

This is a good game but if you could please make another update to fix the bugs and glitches like the little white bar and the item glitch and the voice glitch.

This game is fun foe our 4 year old, but please can the be more world or places when win??? The game gets boring running over and over again all the time.

Its not very responsive. We bought it for our toddler and thought maybe he was just having a hard time buts its hard for us to play as well. Our son LOVES anything spongebob so he plays everyday and everyday he gets mad as heck because it doesnt respond when he swipes. An update would be really nice. Its kind of overpriced for yall to just say screw updating it. We cant be the only person with issues.

You havent updated for 1,460 days update now.

We would give this game 5 stars if it werent for these issues. The game lags terribly (i’m playing on iphone 11). There is an annoying white line on the screen which isnt really an issue but it is pretty irritating. But the worst part is when you try and swipe to move and the game just doesnt respond. We have lost so many times because of it. It’s a great game but really needs an update.

We bought it because we love spongebob games and if you like subway surfers or temple run or minion rush this is just like those EXCEPT SPONGEBOB THEMED !!! Only bad part is it is so laggy you cant even play it right without messing up ( and im on an xs max) ???

This game has so many glitches Im disappointed we spent money on it. As others have said it lags and half the time even if you made the right move it kills you. We like playing the game but it gets frustrating having to start over again and again.

Too much lag even tho we are on the 13? Come on paramount this as good as you can do we see other ppl play it and no lag but when we try its like we got McDonalds Wi-Fi.

They wont update it. Get your refunds, or dont buy it! Its literally trash.

On the iPhone XR the game lags really bad it is unplayable.

Why is this not free and it is bad.

Do not buy this app it lags and the app doesnt make since at all Im and so mad we wasted $4 on this app.

The app has no sound on iPad mini makes it boring we tried reaching tech support but our msg does not send and the app freezes a lot waist of money.

Paid for the app so our son can use it. It freezes so much you cant even play it. Hope it fixes because we just bought it so he can play it.

We Loved This Game When we Was Younger. But This Year When we Lately Downloaded It, There Was Seriously No Sound.

So first time we played it was fine but now we are swiping and it does nothing we’ve lost like ten times and Im swiping please please change this it could be a better game and thnx.

This game is amazing and totally worth the money, it’s just awesome…

This is a great and fun game.

It’s very nice. We like spongebob. It’s very fun. And it’s also nice. !!!!!!

Plz update the game it feels like a dead game had not been updated for a year.

Some times the controls don’t work and make us crash.

We were excited and thought it would be like looney tunes dash… But there’s only one level and it’s hard to control and just boring.
