The most devious plan ever created in a Nicktoons world is
unfolding. Professor Calamitous has pulled together Plankton,
Vlad, and Crocker to form a group known as The Evil Syndicate.
The wicked foursome have begun to wreak havoc throughout Retroville,
Amity Park, Dimmsdale, and Bikini Bottom in an attempt to
take over the world. Not to be outsmarted, Jimmy Neutron calls
upon his own band of Nicktoons. Jimmy, Timmy, Danny, and Spongebob
Squarepants combine their powers to take out The Evil Syndicate,
along with the devastating Doomsday device. It's good versus
evil where only one side will prevail...
in the USA as Nicktoons Unite!, this game is released
in the UK as Spongebob Squarepants and Friends Unite!
I'm not really sure why that is - unless THQ is convinced
that the Spongebob portfolio of games is enough of
a hook to reel in young gamers.
plot is fairly straightforward. Professor Calamitous has stolen
Jimmy Neutron's plans for the Universe Portal Machine and
has struck a deal with a number of shady characters. The Evil
Syndicate is made up of Professor Calamitous, Vlad Plasmius,
Plankton and Denzel Crocker. This evil group has created a
doomsday device and unleashed their mighty power on the worlds
of Dimmsdale, Amity Park, Retroville and Bikini Bottom.
Neutron has leapt across the Nickelodeon Universe to enlist
the aid of three other Nicktoon cartoon characters in his
Danny Phantom, Timmy Turner and Spongebob Squarepants. Now
all four must make their way through numerous levels full
of puzzles, bad guys and hidden secrets, in a bid to set everything
back to normal.
the game you can swap to any of the four characters in your
team. Each has four different attacks that are unique to that
character (you start with one attack and must unlock the others
as you progress through the levels). You'll need to use each
character at different parts in the levels to progress to
the next stage.
you are controlling your character, the AI of the others is
pretty good. While they are not the sharpest knifes in the
drawer when it comes to navigation, they do manage to target
any enemies pretty well.
is, sadly, a game that only those under the age of ten will
appreciate. Any older and you'll realise very quickly how
easy and repetitive it is. Having said that, as a game for
the young this is pretty good fun. The characters look pretty
good and the overall gameplay is fairly solid.
