So a Youtuber nammed Crispy Boy uploaded a video, detailing his SpongeBob Squarepants merchandise collection and in that video he talks about an obscure SpongeBob computer game that is a clone of the super monkey ball game series. This intrigued me so I asked Crispy Boy about the game and he replied saying that he tried googling about the game to see if he could find it's name but he couldn't track it down anywhere. So then I concluded that this game could be a price of SpongeBob lost media that is worth hunting for. (since I am a fan of both SpongeBob and super monkey ball) Now a heads up, Crispy Boy could just be confusing a different SpongeBob game or part of a different SpongeBob game with being a full on Super Monkey Ball clone, as there are other SpongeBob games that are very reminiscent of Super Monkey Ball, such as SpongeBob 3d obstacle odyssey or the Spongeball parts of the console SpongeBob movie game. But if Crispy Boy isn't getting two or more games confused and this is a real, full on Super Monkey Ball clone, then this is a search that I would like to see happen. Please.
This guy you mentioned Crispy Boy is probably talking about Spongebob 3D Obstacle Odyssey or Spongebob 3D Obstacle Odyssey 2. However I really 100% certainly remember playing a Spongebob game that was like Super Monkey Ball as a kid. I definitely played it. and I looked for it a few years ago and couldn't find it but Spongebob 3D Obstacle Odyssey 2 looks close. It probably had the same game engine too. but for the entire game you are in a ball the whole time, not like in 3D Obstacle Odyssey where you're only in a ball sometimes. The levels were weird. I got it from nickelodeon's website probably, and lastly I remember you had to unlock later characters like Sandy. I was very young though and it was too hard so I never got far or unlocked anything. I think it's a PC game. My dad also got really weird games on CDs from Iran in the mid-2000s so it might've been one of those IDK. Also my memory is extremely bad, and when looking for lost media, usually I get half the details wrong. Like my memory is really bad. So this probably wont help. But I definitely played the game you're describing. I might be remembering multiple games and not 1 game. It might also be from BigFish Games or a random freeware website cuz I went on those a lot too. Lastly the game I'm remembering is not pinball panic, it wasn't pinball but levels with parkour.
Edit: I remember one level with an orange checker pattern as the texture for the platforms. I might be remembering the wrong game. I also remember a symmetrical level which was just made out of sand like in some Spongebob 3D Obstacle Odyssey 2 levels but that's probably just me remembering Spongebob 3D Obstacle Odyssey 2. The thing about unlocking characters like Sandy is also probably me remembering the wrong game, and there was probably no character select. I think I'm mixing up 2 games and I don't know which details are from the Spongebob super monkey ball clone and which aren't. Maybe only 20-30% of the info I said is actually from the game.
