    The game is quite enjoyable and entertaining, there has been a lot that has gone into the creation of this game, I can tell. My only gripe is that the monetary cost for gems is far too much and the amount of gems needed for certain most things is just too much as well. :/ Overall a great game but I can't keep playing it at the rate that's entertaining to me because it costs $$$$.

  • Great game but.... May 22, 2020

    By The usernames are all taken 😩
    I think this is a great game first of all. But, like everybody else I have a problem with the fact that you have to have money AND gems for a lot of the upgrades, which doesn’t make any sense at all. I think the problem is is that the game doesn’t start off with you having a decent amount of gems so you’re not left with that much freedom with what you want to do with your upgrades, so you’re pretty much stuck with having to do the pancake levels a bunch of times to get achievements and even then, you only get ONE GEM for doing that. Coupled with that, by the time you get to unlock the Krusty Krab you’re pretty much dirt poor with gems bc you’ve already spent it all on upgrading your pancake stand and that the game doesn’t give you that many gems to begin with, and don’t get me even started with that it doesn’t give you that much options to be able to go get gems. And that’s only my first major problem. The second one is the game mechanic “Triple-tap feature” where if you tap your plate three times, it’ll put your plate of food in the garbage. IMO, that’s a horrible mechanic. I have accidentally pressed on the plates with food three times by accident multiple times and it makes me reset the level bc you’re not allowed to dump your food sometimes

    This is fun, funny, and looks great. I bought the introductory booster pack and then another, because I wanted to keep playing but, I can see now that it's gonna be tough (impossible maybe) to upgrade kitchen equipment, level up my cooks, and win events without shelling out. I may continue forward. Maybe not. I feel bad for younger Spongebob fans that may not be able to play this for long without hitting a wall

    After the 12/12 update I guess it has become all about being able to get gems and no boosters, which is fine except that I can only play a couple matches at a time before the game crashes. Hard. Like so hard I can reopen it until I restart my phone. If it reopens. So. I'm not playing a game I have to restart my phone just to access. Until this point however, I had a lot a lot of fun so, there is that.

  • Well Rounded Fun... except May 17, 2020

    By zey_OLIVETREE
    This game has proved to be a great time waster! As in a very fun way to pass time or just play it when you’re bored. I myself played for quite a few hours when I first downloaded the game and had very little issue with the whole game. I was receiving a steady flow of Gems and Coin to upgrade my equipment and food, the amount of Unlimited Lives I was getting was keeping me playing and I loved it, and it was based on Spongebob... who wouldn’t love that?! But the I unlocked the Krusty Krab and that’s where the problems start. The upgrades understandably cost much more coin in the Krusty Krab, but more Gems as well? Without the steady stream of Gems still pouring in from the Tutorial Phase and the fact that I just spent all my Gems maximizing the potential of my pancake stand, I’m making no progress in terms of upgrades. I’ve been able to afford the Gem price of two upgrades and I’ve been tryin to earn them for hours. So I’m begging the Dev’s here, please remove Gem upgrade costs, that makes your game EXTREMELY pay to win and none of us want that. By the time we all the upgrades we’d have put a lot of real money in, and that’s just the slightest bit ridiculous. But all in all, other than that fact, the game is great! Would recommend!

  • It IS a fun game, just some things need tweaked Jun 7, 2020

    By Aiganrai
    The game is super fun, I love these diner quick serve type of games, I personally have no problem with the waiting times for upgrades. I usually play the game as much as I can until I have enough money saved up and get stuck, and then just buy all the upgrades I want before bed so when I wake up I have tons of new things. My issue is idk if it’s a bug or what but I’ve completed Ham a Lot and was waiting to open the next restaurant, the juice bar, but it’s still locked? I have almost completely upgraded Ham a Lot, all interiors almost all kitchen upgrades, but I have that little icon on the left where it says 0/1 like I haven’t competed a level or something? Doesn’t make any sense because I’m in the infinite levels of the restaurant, like I’m on level 106 of Ham a Lot, so idk what else to do. I’ve also experienced that glitch where you’ll beat a level and then it takes you back to the game screen and you can’t do anything, no more customers are coming and food is burning but you can’t close anything out, I just have to restart the game. Very weird. I’m more so worried about getting the juice bar, like it’s been days since I’ve finished this restaurant. It’s almost like the progress meter is for the juice bar but I’m in Ham-a-Lot. Will the new restaurant ever open???

    It's a pay to play game. I have maybe 5 hours into the game before it became absolutely impossible to beat any levels without paying for gems for kitchen upgrades. Thats with me having already purchased $8 worth of bundles to help me progress. If you aren't willing to put alot of money into it then don't get this game, there are many other games out there that are just as fun without having to empty your wallet. I would only give 1 star for that reason, but it is fun so 2 will do. Uninstalled.

    Fun diner type game with smooth graphics and clean UI. However, the game crashes after an ad is watched. Regardless if it was an ad for a bonus or an obtrusive post-level ad, the game goes to a black screen with the theme music playing till system ask to force close app after closing the ad.

    By Bethanymk
    I’ve played a toooon of these games and the upgrades are already tough enough with ads and the upgrades. I dealt with the ads on this game for a while, then the annoying cool downs for buying new items, and then I finally got pretty far in the game and you say that I ran out of gems-____- so I guess I was paying with coins and gems at the same time for the entire game... for what reason? I feel like any of these games that make you wait for an upgrade, are kind of stupid because it’s almost like you’re telling your users that we should wait 30 minutes before continuing to play... you’re literally teaching us how to go on with our lives without the app. Just make everything coins only and cosmetics buyable with gems. There no need to use two currencies for one item. We’re already watching ads, you’re getting paid for that already. Why push people away, I would’ve definitely played this a few more weeks and you would’ve at least had the ad revenue. I immediately deleted the app when I realized I needed to pay to continue. So stupid. Make your app cost something to play and then take away some of the gem traps. It’s not necessary... absolutely not necessary.

    It's very buggy since the last update. Will freeze regularly. It is really tough to get gems, which you need to move on in the game. I'm updating my post. The double tap to trash something is horrid. I have lost at least 1000 levels because i accidentally tapped an item twice. Sssoooooooooooooooo frustrating. Whomever thought that should be the way to trash something sucks.

    This is a fun, and really enjoyable game! It provides a wonderful way to pass extra time, and also helps you to practice a bit of multitasking 😊 of course, there are a few tiffs and tuffs here and there, but nothing that gives any big reason to be angry with the game itself! Plus, the overall aesthetic of the food and decorations gives a full on Spongebob-like experience! So, in all, it's a nice game!

  • I love this game but... May 14, 2020

    By SMARTPERAON
    The reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the wait time just to get 1 life back when you hit 0. It’s get pretty boring when you have already used watched the video and don’t have enough gems to buy a life, and still have around 30 minutes for another life. This wouldn’t be as much of a pain if you cut the wait to at least 5 minutes, or added something else to do in the game during the wait. May I recommend actually getting to build bikini bottom, adding a factory where you have to work to grow, pick, box and ship out. Maybe even putting the aspect of the sims into it, you know getting to create a character and take care of it in bikini bottom, getting pets, really their is many opportunities to make this get a perfect score. But other than that it deserves a 5 star review. Also, if you do have to wait that long at least give us more lives in the process.

    I friggin LOVE this game. Super fun and addictive I wish I could just play it all day everyday! You dont have to spend any money at all if you just beat the levels and finish the accomplishments for gems and other prizes. Championship competitions add a nice way to earn loads of gems to upgrade your kitchen items. All you have to do is play more levels to earn your way up the ranking! Yes please! I love spongebob

    This game is amazing, as a spongebob fan I thought it would be like the other cooking games, boy was I wrong. You can just open the app and BOOM! A hour passed! It's an amazing time killer. There's also no bugs or glitches, and even when they are, they get fixed immediately because the developers care.

  • Alright Game, pretty buggy May 26, 2020

    By Graphiic Frenzy
    I'm really enjoying this game except I'm experiencing a bug where once you complete a level and the win screen pops up, instead of bringing you back to the in-game menu, it just goes back into the level, and it acts as if I'm still trying to complete it. However, nothing happens, no customers come by and it's just waiting for something to trigger. I'm able to cook and trash food still but I'm unable to press pause and leave the level, making me have to close the app and open back up. (Im on level 60 on the pancake section and it's been happening for the last 3 levels) Also the Gem mechanic seems pretty broken. It's hard to earn more than one Gem at a time without paying money. I'd rather watch ads to get free Gems rather than paying for them. With that in mind, it's difficult to progress through the game without either watching ads or paying for in game transactions. I understand that game devs need an income but again, I'd gladly watch ads for Gems if they're giving me more than 5 at a time, since progressing needs well over that amount. (Honestly pick Coins or Gems to help progress, not both)

  • 5 stars if you make it easier to get gems!! Jun 22, 2020

    By mama anonymous
    A lot of the levels aren’t able to be passed unless you have the highest upgraded appliances, which all require gems. As you unlock each new restaurant, the appliances get increasingly more expensive, requiring more gems per upgrade. We should be able to watch ads for gems, or give more than 1 gem/achievement. I’ve already purchased all of the dining upgrades and things that increase tips, it’s the gems that I need. You also can only purchase boosters with gems, and each is like 15 gems. Other than the gem issue, I have to say I really love this game. It really is a nice break from life, and being a diehard spongebob fan since I was about 5, I am so glad they finally released a game like this, as I’ve always played games with this style of having to serve a crowd. I really like how each restaurant has a different theme, different kinds of food, and all of the food items are laid out differently in each kitchen and require different sides toppings, so it keeps you on your toes. All in all, I’d recommend this game if we had other ways to get more gems!

  • Good game, greedy developers Jul 7, 2020

    By yuuungjoc
    Krusty cook-off is fun and addicting, however, it’s impossible to win without spending a lot of actual money. The further in the levels you go, the more gems it costs to upgrade and successfully complete the levels, which requires you to purchase. The “rewards” the game offers are not enough so you have no choice. I’ve already spent $40 on the game, like I said it’s addicting, but I’ve had to delete the app because I realized there’s no way for me to move forward without spending more, which i feel I’ve already spent a ridiculous amount of for a little boredom buster phone game. A better concept would be to take away the gems and allow people to purchase the game at a set price where we can actually complete the game with coins earned. Maybe even have more sponsored ads to watch and earn more than just one gem a video or even food truck events where you strictly earn gems since it later costs over 200 gems a level. Most levels are also impossible without gem paid boosters, which I’m sure they did that on purpose as well for more money. Love the game but I’m frustrated the developers were so greedy with the concept and I really wish I was able to keep playing.

  • Great game, frustrating crashing Dec 22, 2020

    By KiwiDiwi
    This is actually a really fun game if it works well. The issue I’m having is that, occasionally, when I try to start a level, it crashes! This is incredibly frustrating, particularly when I try to use boosters or am working on a streak: the booster is instantaneously consumed and I’ve completely wasted it, or my streak is broken and I have to start over from the beginning! I really hope the developers fix this so that people don’t keep pointlessly wasting their money on this game; pay-to-wins are bad enough as they are, but paying for resources without being able to use them are infinitely worse. Similarly, as I’ve seen in other reviews, the mechanic of trashing items is not really intuitive: for certain levels where different items are really close together (like the pretzels and cheese in Weenie Hut Jrs), it is VERY easy to click the same thing more than once when you intend to click another item. This isn’t too bad on most levels, but for levels in which you aren’t allowed to trash items, it becomes a really big problem. I really want to enjoy this game, but sometimes I simply have to stop playing after encountering these issues.

    Downgraded review. I'm just now realizing how rigged this game is, especially when it comes to the food truck. There are level you can't pass without spending 15 diamonds to add more customers. Why intentionally set a limited amount of customers knowing the money goal won't be met? No matter how fast or how many combos you get, you can't pass without adding more customers or time. Why pay 15 diamonds when the reward itself isn't that big?

  • OVERUSED GEM MONEY HUNGRY SCAM GAMEPLAY May 26, 2020

    By spooooooooooooookkkkky
    the tripple to trash is so annoying and unnecessary. A feature to instead drag to the trash can would be much better because it seems like a trick to make you lose the tasks that are to not throw any food away. very hard to get gems which makes it impossible to move on seems to push needing to purchase them too much. after unlocking sandys bbq it’s impossible to move on past 1 star items bc the gem price spiked from 10 gems to 89!!! that’s ridiculous and impossible without buying them because by then you’ve already played all the gems out of the pancake stand and the krusty kranks. Go lower on gems and higher on coins, i don’t even get why it’s pushing so hard for gems when there’s also adds not even cooking fever is like that 🙄 Lower the needed gems for upgrades and use more coins or make it easier to get gems. also all the “challenges” are impossible it really pushes to buy boosters all it wants is money. The food truck is an absolute scam bc it gives you 60 seconds but half of that is how long the customers take to get up there and order. EACH LEVEL SHOULD BE PASSABLE WITHOUT HAVING TO USE A BOOSTER, yet another money grubbing feature y’all aren’t Eugene Krabs why did you make it like this.

  • Love the game but... May 24, 2020

    By Laura__T93
    This is a very fun game and has a good story line and keeps you entertained for hours. But like so many other reviews I have come across once you unlock the Krusty Krab things go south. It is ridiculous and just silly to make you pay for upgrades with coins AND gems. Gems that you can’t win. So the only way to even upgrade is to constantly spend more and more money. Also IMO each level should be winnable WITHOUT boosters. You come across some of the levels that you literally can not beat without using some kind of extra help. And of course once you have used all your boosters you can get more by paying for them with your GEMS. The same gems you need for upgrades and everything else in the game. So once you lose at the level so many times and lose all of your lives and can’t play for another 30 minutes. It will lose my attention very quickly unless this is fixed. So overall they should take the option of paying for everything with gems out of the game or have it as an option like every other game out there and let the user decide if they want to spend the extra money they can. It shouldn’t be mandatory to pay to win.
