SpongeBob and The Clash of Triton Review

We’re a family that is highly amused by SpongeBob SquarePants. The boys can watch repeats of that show over and over again. When we were given the opportunity to try out The Clash of Triton, I jumped onboard.IMG_5912

My boys aren’t big computer geeks, yet. They’re more ensconced with their PS2 and DS. I wasn’t exactly sure how they’d feel about playing a computer game.

HA! I needn’t have worried. This past weekend I had to give my boys equal time playing the game. Then the competition of Brothers came in trying to see who could get to higher levels fastest. They take their turns playing and what’s been nice about this game, maybe its their age, too, they’ve been helping each other with tricks they’ve learned or a certain way to go. So yes, they’re competing against each other, but they’re also helping each other to get further.

This is the first PC game we’ve used since I got my new computer monitor. Man, The Clash of Triton looked so cool on this screen! The graphics are really good and the game challenges my boys as much as their handheld games and gaming system, which is an important aspect when finding games for my boys.

If a game isn’t challenging or engaging, my boys won’t have anything to do with it. SpongeBob and Clash of Triton got my boys involved and that’s the factor that is most important to their game playing.

Here’s some of the technical info about the game:

I STILL don't understand what he is exactly. My nephew tried to tell me but, still, have no idea. He makes burgers underwater though, which means he can't be all that bad :-)

P.S. You are a great writer lady!
