SpongeBob Gravjet Blast (codenamed Prodigy) was a racing game for Xbox Live Arcade planned for release in 2009. The game used popular characters in the Nicktoons lineup, both past and present, such as Ren and Stimpy. The gameplay was inspired by the Wipeout series and featured fast paced hover racing with weapon combat. The direction of gravity changed with the winding of the track, so that the ships would race sideways, upside down, or even around cylinders. There were shortcuts in each track as well as panels on the track surface that would cause the ships to slow down or slide when driven over. Each character had a unique ship and track that used elements of their respective art styles, but gave them a futuristic twist. The game ended development in it’s beta stage due to financial issues.
