A downloadable game

It's your ordinary night shift at the Krusty Krab until a sequence of horrific events occur.  With your co-worker squidward dead, and a horde of hash slinging slashers entering the Krusty Krab, you must find a way out. Immerse yourself in this wave-based FPS horror in which you (Spongebob) must fight his way out of the Krusty Krab. Start with a pistol and kill hash slinging slashers to earn money. With this money, you can buy better weapons off the walls of the Krusty Krab. Explore the landscape and find clues that help you escape the restaurant wasteland. There are a total of 5 endings. 

Disclaimer: This is a fan parody game and I never have and never will intend to make money from this project. This game is a fan service to SpongeBob fan's alike. 

For those on Xbox, you can still get this game. (though it's very outdated)  Redeem code "CGDTT-9DH3G-KF3D9-QK2FQ-2J47Z" in the microsoft store.

Can you make the full OST on your YouTube channel, please?

This game doesn't have an original soundtrack, but here's a list of all the songs.


Thank you so much


1st Spongebob Horror 2.0, 2nd Spongebob Cancelled, and last one is The Nightmares At The Krusty Krab. I will say the game was pretty good but shooting while trying to carry Squidward was little awkward. He block the your view but you guys have updates and I need to try them out. Keep up the good work. 

Nice game,my pc reached 83 celsius when i played

either some optimization will be needed or my pc is just shit lmao


Last update I introduced a lot of optimizations. My PC is mid tiers specs and I get 150+FPS. I will try to make a option to select graphics settings soon

just make a vsync thing and/ or a fps limiter in settings if you do

Not gonna lie, the new boss fight is kinda hard but I enjoy the increase in difficulty.

Here's hoping I beat it by the end of the day.

Thanks. Just keep moving and you'll avoid it. I just put out a small performance and graphics patch too incase the FPS was low so make sure to download that.

shortly after making the first comment, I beat it by sitting and shooting behind the moon surface on both sides and alternating. 

Also will download that soon 

Nice. You should try for a speed run

that's the plan

also Im surprised you don't run your own game?

Maybe I’ll try it

Just fixed poor graphics and optimized the game a bit. Should look and run better now.

Graphics might be a bit poor because it didn't implement some effect profiles. I'm going to first roll out a graphical enhanced version of the game then after ill make an update with grapics options for lower end PCs.

Update is out now

also add setting please i have a patato laptop

setting for graphics?


The update will be out very soon

Hermoso pecaminoso deseo cárnico
Desde que Calamardo falleció solo me he alimentado de sus restos
Mi novio Calamardo. ahora soy viuda... la vida es tan cruel.
Y si no me sigues te corto las patas

Working on an update that's gonna be out of this world

awesome sauce

Out of curiosity, will the xbox version be updated with this, or will the xbox release never be updated?

Edit: Never-mind, read a comment under the video 'r o c k e t'


3 Out of 5

Loved the game so far with the 2 endings. I didn't even expect the boss lol that was sick. This was ambitious. Good job devs.

Do you think you could ever make a Linux build for all us Linux games out here?

I appreciate the feedback. The game was honestly made as a joke a couple years ago and just recently put 2 updates out because I had some free time and missed working on it. I don’t think it’s gotten worse though and you might have nostalgic fever as the graphics didn’t change (the Xbox version has always not had post processing and had half resolution textures) and the game barely changed thematically. I’m thinking of making on last update that would be the biggest ending yet. Edit: I also didn’t realize the lamp posts in the distance were exclusive to the Xbox version. I’ll add those on PC as well.

I've been having a fun time speedrunning the game. Thanks for the updates!

Glad you like it. Will you be posting your runs?

Of course! I'm on speedrun.com under same user. Already posted runs for the new update.

absolutely superb game! the "Best Ending" was amazing.


Chance of a sequal?

Possibly. Not in the works but been thinking about it.

I remmember playing this game back when it released, unfortunately it was on my old channel but I'm recording it again now. First episode out tomorrow.

Loved the episode! Thanks for re visiting my game.

I found a weird lump of terrain outside of the map, was that intentional?

That must be a bug

(1 edit)

This is as amazing as I thought it would be. Thank you so much for this masterpiece of a game!


Thanks for playing! I'm glad you like it. Keep up the speedrunning!

i have a question: when there is gonna be new update?

Just updated... 2 years later lol

The Sunset Ending and The Escape Ending

I think this was either the 2nd or 3rd game I played... and it was pretty cool that it reminded me of Nazi Zombies but with the Hash Slinging Slasher instead.

Hey dude, love the game. Played it on Xbox the other day, beat it (got all 3 ending (there any more?) and was streaming it and my friends and I were laughing our asses off (Xbox).

Just got the update for the console version yesterday, played today, and noticed that you can now shoot when you pick up Squidward's dead body (hilarious by the way, haha!)

Anywhere I can find the patch notes?

My gamertag is "Faulk Smash", I'd love to speak to you some time!

Are you supposed to get the secret ending on console?

Deleted 3 years ago

oh ok

i finally got the new ending it was hard to get but it was amazing i hope there will be more endings like that.

Deleted 3 years ago

yes that was nuke ending and it was a bit harder than the old one i needed to kill 70 slashers to get there and i even test it 2 times after killing 70 slashers it open.


Gave it a go...

Update: Im trying to get my game on xbox. Its been tested and im going to see if I can put it on the windows store for both PC and Xbox. However, those are 2 completely different builds of the game in their own version, sepatate from this one. If I get my game onto consoles, it will be updated much less frequently than here. Im going to put all future updates on the itch page only.  This website will likely contain the most recent version of my game at all times. Ill keep you updated on the console port. it has yet to be certified by microsoft so we will see.

Hilarious game! It was an honor to play it!

nice video! Thanks for playing

Im currently testing the game out for xbox one. A port is a possibility. Ill keep you updated.

Thanks For 3000 downloads


sorry for screaming but I had fun playing it and recording it !

way to go developer !

As it will be said...I loved the little "Oh Yeah Mr. Krabs" sound you added. Fucking thing actually scared me while I was playing the game. I definitely loved it, even had that black ops zombies 1 feel which I do enjoy! I do wished you added one thing. Like a hash slinging slasher kill counter! 

Great video. I’m glad you got some of the references. I’ll try to add a kill counter of some sort in the future. Thanks for playing

Update: I just implemented a kill counter in the engine. Ill put it out in the next update 100%. Thanks for the suggestion.

very very funny and good game good job ( extra props for the graphics troll)

Thanks. What do you mean, graphics troll?

well when i first started the game i chose simple graphics because i dont have a monster pc but then i went to the max settings and it looked exactly the same so i thought it was a troll lol

That’s more a bug than a troll. Thanks for letting me know. If it’s running slowly, try lowering the resolution 


Hey, I made a video playing your game. It was a lot of fun! 

Great vid. Pretty funny. Thanks for playing

Wow! I just went on youtube and looked and trending for gaming, and I saw a vid of my game at #4 On Trending! Never would have thought this game would get sorta big. Thanks for almost 3000 downloads also. Ill make sure to keep updating since it seems that people are still interested in my game. Thanks for the support!

Vid Link Here: 

Fun little game!

My channel(opens in new tab): youtube.com/jonathick
