SpongeBob Diner Dash is a simple time-management game in which you work in a restaurant and your job is to serve the customers. The first thing to do when the customers arrive is drag them to a table. Then, they will take some time to think what they want and when they are ready you need to go their tables to get their order and take it to the kitchen to cook it. When the food is ready, you need to take it to the corresponding table. When the customers finish eating, they will ask for the check, so you need to go to their table and take the dishes to the cleaning station. The customers have different patience levels represented with the hearts. The more satisfied they are, the greater tip they will leave. Moreover, if a client gets mad and leaves the place, you will lose a star. When you lose the three stars, the game is over. In every level, you will have a money goal that you need to reach in order to proceed to the next level.
The game includes two modes: Story and Endless. In Story mode, you will advance progressively as the story unfolds and upgrades are done automatically after each day of work, while in Endless mode, you can select from three difficulty levels and the customers will never stop coming to your shop, so you need to perform the necessary upgrades when needed. Sadly, the game offers very poor graphics and it only can be played in full screen, which makes them look worse. Sounds are very simple and the music is suitable, but a bit repetitive. more
