Spongebob: Battle for Bikini Bottom [PS2/XBOX/GC – Beta]

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom is an action video game based on the television show SpongeBob SquarePants. The game has been released for the GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox.  Joel has made us to notice about a beta video that shows some differences from the final game:

1. The green arrows that are shown when targeting an enemy are replaced by a white glove pointing at them in the finalized version.

2. A purple collectible is shown when an enemy is destroyed that is not in the finalized version.

3. Various sound effects and soundtracks are missing.

4. A playable character (Sandy) has a completely different animation for sliding down tracks by doing it on her tail.

5. Another playable character (Spongebob) is shown with less-finalized attacks, showing his “bubble moves” with less detail and they are more rounded in shape.

6. A non-playable character (The Flying Dutchman) is shown in a different area of a level and he looks somewhat different (since he is a ghost character he has a glow effect in the finalized version that isn’t in the beta).

7. There is a smoke effect that I do not recall seeing in the finalized version.

Thanks to Joel for the contribution!
