2.0 out of 5 stars in app purchases in PAID games is unacceptable September 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
It is unacceptable for PAID games/apps to have IAP. When a game is bought it should have no IAP, if want the option available make it so you use cheat codes like the good old days when IAP wasent stamped on everything. It plays like doodle jump and has a level system similar to saga games. The game gets increasingly harder, in hope you will drain your bank to the greedy developer. Even more unacceptable is that this is primarily a kids game, and when parents buy a PAID app they usaly do so to avoid IAPs. It has analytics and all that good stuff to figure out how to send an ocean of money to the developer. Actually this should be mr krabs doodle jump instead who is greeder? Well that is for you to decide.

1.0 out of 5 stars IAP (In-App Purchasing) Aimed At Children September 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
This app may seem harmless, but unless you lock down your device against in-app purchases by kids (Amazon defaults to allowing purchases without security) you could be in for a rude awakening when Nickelodeon hits your Amazon-registered credit card for megabucks - up to $50 for EACH purchase!! If you do have IAP turned off, the app gladly helps you turn it back on. Thoughtful of them, yes?

By the way, Nickelodeon sure wants you to know it is their game since their logo sticks on your screen for a good 20+ seconds. :c/

Of course, Nickelodeon games wouldn't be complete with embedded code to snoop on your gameplay, or in this case, your kids' game play. A major drawback for consumers regarding In-App Purchasing combined with analytics (a type of spyware) is that developers get to find out what's too easy and make it more difficult, and worse, find out how to make something just a *tad* too difficult to encourage the player to purchase something to get him or her over that little hump that's plaguing them; the player doesn't realize the hump was put there on purpose to encourage him or her to go buy something to get past it.

This combination is bad enough, but when it is aimed toward children it will always raise my hackles.

BOTTOM LINE: Stay Away, and Dont' Give it to Children

1.0 out of 5 stars bad permissions and analytics and iap's oh my September 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
OK, my wife purchased this app when it was on sale. I figure if amazon is SELLING this app it's been vetted.

This game has permissions all parents need to be aware of.

1. Why does soon sponge Bob need my phone identity?
2. Why does sponge Bob need to be running analytics?
3. Since when does an app help you turn on iap's?

You might download and keep it to the side for now, parents need to be careful of this one or pass it by.

I almost don't have the heart to write this review, but I shall.

First, and the reason I even downloaded this game was to see what possibly could this game sell as IAP. Coins. So we have another short-cut IAP, but unlike CASTLE DOOMBAD that has an older market audience, this one is definitely includes the much younger set. It's pretty gratuitous In-App purchasing too... it's really easy to gather coins. In fact, you can fairly quickly grind out coins to buy the extra things by playing previous, less difficult levels (I had 1290 shells by the time I was ready for level 3, more enough to buy any booster I wanted). Nevertheless, as we are talking a much younger audience here, this short-cut IAP does make me frown harder.

Second, along with Network Access and Device State/ID acting as a common micro-market piracy protection, Read Device State/ID also allows a game to pause for incoming calls when played on a phone.

Third, the assumed analytics here is Amazon's Insights, which Amazon's GameCircle gaming network is dependent on. It's also a *seller end* analytics, mainly geared to comparison of other similar products on the market, comparative MAP tracking, Amazon Market stats, and so on. It has nothing to do with the end user's data beyond showing network/frame effectiveness of GameCircle integration.

Fourth, also incorporates PlayHaven network, which in this game's case is used as a gamer network for updating Daily/Weekly challenges for yet more earned coins, plus independent Leaderboard uploading and Score Markers (local, friends, and global), both of which can be turned off. The game itself also runs OFFLINE consistently and offers a clean exit with the back-key prompting a [Quit].

Verified Purchase
This is game targeted at children because of their love of Sponge Bob. Heck I love Sponge Bob after being force to watch every episode with my grandchildren. There are InApp purchases ranging in price from $1.99 to the "Best Deal" of $49.99. There are 3 pages of items to purchase like powerups, costumes and coins. Isn't this why Amazon and Apple were sued by the Federal Trade Commission for taking money from children? Games that use fake coins to purchase items and then sell children coins for real money were deemed to be devious as children cannot tell the difference between real money and fake money. When they purchase items they think they are using fake money.

This game is a rip off and the Nickelodeon should be ashamed to create an app likes this. It is a blatant attempt to take money from children. The price of the InApp purchases is ridiculous. This app uses the popularity of the Sponge Bob character to facilitate the sale of useless powerups and Crabby Patties for real money. If you properly set up your device settings you can make this a fun app for your children and they can earn money along the way playing the game to purchase items they need. Just an added comment in that the game is made especially hard to beat in the levels where the gangsters show up to kill you. You will need several Crabby Patties to win and that is why I hate IAP games. They make them extremely difficult in order to force you to purchase coins to win a simple level.

The app does play with the airplane mode turned on and that will stop your child from buying anything. In addition you can turn off InApp purchases in your Amazon Appstore settings. That way it requires a password to turn purchases back on.
