Beach Party Cook-Off
The player, as SpongeBob, runs the Krusty Krab. When Mr. Krabs and Plankton both want to cook for Jack Kahuna Laguna's beach party, Jack demands a contest to decide who will cook at the Party. Plankton's cousins want to help him, but Plankton will not pay them for the work. Mr. Krabs won't pay much, but it's better than nothing. Throughout the game you will play through 5 "Episodes", each with a new judge after every 3 workdays, and a new theme for the Krusty Krab. The player will then need to help SpongeBob train a group of Plankton's cousins to become the best chefs in Bikini Bottom.
Throughout the game, SpongeBob has to manage four different "stations" in order for his cooking to be a success. These stations are:
- Patrick's Station: Where the food is sliced, chopped and sawed.
- The Grill: SpongeBob's station: Where the player can experience flipping patties, stirring up ketchup for the fries and can roast foods like SpongeBob. The Grill truly makes the player feel like a Fry Cook.
- Gary's Station: The orders, where the player can choose which orders he or she wants to cook next as well as adding bonuses, such as the Double Card (If two orders are the same, the player can pair them up with a price of two quality slices), EXP bonuses, quality bonuses, and, Mr. Krabs' personal favorite, the price bonus.
- Squidward's Station: Where the player can coat the buns of a Krabby Patty, squeeze some juices of of berries and can deep fry in three different ways. Regular deep frying, slingshot deep frying, and deep frying through the art of skimming small ingredients.
- Sandy's station: For the finishing touches, such as putting the salt on fries, garnishing some other recipes, and assembling Patties.
