AWE Games' first SpongeBob SquarePants game. The game has two stories, but they both involve playing the same five minigames.

Unused Graphics


Thumbnails for each zone.

Hey Squidward!

A thumbnail for the movie menu. It's a frame from one of the cutscenes.

Holy shrimp!

A thumbnail for the main menu with SpongeBob in bed. Unlike the actual menu, he has sleeves.

Ahh... Jellyfish Fields.

A thumbnail with the Jellyfish Fields sign.

Neon wooden lights!

A thumbnail with "BoaTiNG SChoOl" crudely edited over the Jellyfish Fields sign.


EVIL!EEEEVVVVIIIILLLLL!!And the lights will flicker on and off...Fire!!!

Icons found in the graphics of every level. They could be related to the "editor", which the game's executable mentions frequently.

Unused Models

Mr. Krabs

Save the money first!

MRKRAB.PRO is an unused model of Mr. Krabs. He does appear in the game, but as a 2D sprite steering the ship in Save Me Money. He was most likely to be a playable character in "Save Me Money" because when you replace Z5SPON.PRO with MRKRAB.PRO, his texture appears correctly, but he will be small. He has animations for when he mounts the cannons.

Sboperationkp boat3.png

BOAT3.PRO is SpongeBob's boat from the season 2 episode No Free Rides but with no wheels. It was meant for Boating School 101, which only has two levels, making this go unused. The boat itself was later reused in Employee of the Month as the car that needs to be washed, as well as the Windows version of Battle for Bikini Bottom in the Traffic Jam minigame.

Unused Sounds


A sparkling sound effect likely meant for unlocking something. It was later used in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie as the pickup sound.


A double beeping sound, and could've been used while backing up in Boating School 101.

Unused Text

SpongeBob.exe, the game's executable, is where all the text is. While there isn't much to find, there's still a few interesting things.


References to removed graphics related to some sort of editor.

Another reference to an editor.

Revisional Differences

Some releases of the games use a generic AWE Games intro in the beginning, however most of them use one with Plankton.
