SpongeBob's Robotic Adventure is the first game in the fangame series of the same name released by HafenGames that started development on March 15, 2013. The first public release of the game was on April 21, 2013, as a demo with 4 levels (not including sub-levels). The full game released on May 17, 2013 for Windows. At one point, an Xbox 360 port was in development, but it was quickly canceled.

You can find all versions of the game by clicking here.

Almost 3 years after the game's initial release, Da Nerd released a bugfix update that also ported the game to GameMaker: Studio (while previous versions were made using Game Maker 8) as well as other fixes and the announcement of an Android port that never made it to fruition.

On July 7, 2017, Notdn proposed to remake the game with updated graphics to serve as the potential base on which to build a sequel. The remake was later confirmed for a 2018 release.


Plankton has come up with yet another "foolproof" plan to steal the formula. He has created the Robo-Generator 2000™ which, fitting its name, generates robots. Plankton intends on using the robot army to get rid of SpongeBob, allowing Plankton to get into the kitchen of the Krusty Krab, and into the safe. Meanwhile, SpongeBob is watching his favorite shows on TV while a news report interrupts. Breaking news! Plankton from the Chum Bucket has released an army of robots! SpongeBob assumes Plankton's intent on getting the formula with these robots, and he has to do whatever he can to stop him. And so our journey begins...
