SpongeBob Atlantis SquareOff Review
SBASO is a TV show tie-in cross between a collectable card game and an adventure game. It is a little more representative of the show than most of the SpongeBob games I've seen so far.

Karolyneb's expected age range (your child may vary ):
This is definitely for school age children. It requires the ability to read and the ability to add and subtract two-digit numbers is very helpful.
Younger children (older 4 and 5yo) may be able to play with help but the game requires strategy and may become bored.

Gameplay description:
This game is a cross between a collectable card game and an adventure game.
Players move through a map defeating enemies (mild cartoon violence) and collecting cards to add to their decks. The decks consist of movement, battle, safety, and special, one time use cards but each deck is limited to 2 cards of each type. Cards are pre-sorted by type and take different values of energy points on use. Players can use as many cards as they wish until they run out of energy
Adventure-style components include treasure barrels that may contain additional cards when attacked.
There are 9 chapters with 6-7 levels on each chapter.

The good:
Nice basic introduction to collectable card games

The bad:
Younger children will most likely become frustrated with it if playing without help. Higher levels in the game require a fair amount of strategizing.
Each level takes a comparatively long period of time to play - younger children may become bored
Game does not save in the middle of a level

Who will love this:
Older fans of SpongeBob who are able to read, add, and strategize
Children ready to move into collectable card games
Who will hate this:
Children who have already started in collectable card games
Children who are too young

Karolyneb's soapbox:
Some adults who are thinking about getting into collectable card games may wish to check this out. It is different from many games in that users are able to play multiple cards of any type during each turn but the strategy is generally the same as in more complex games.
