So long as licensed games -- particularly ones aimed at younger audiences -- are going to exist, they might as well be good. While I doubt THQ's newly-unveiled SpongeBob SquigglePants will carry the same weight around these parts as Double Fine's Sesame Street Kinect title, it sounds interesting.
Releasing on April 12 for Wii at a budget price of $29.99, this latest SpongeBob game works with the uDraw GameTablet. Much to my delight, it's taking a page straight from the book of WarioWare: Touched! with 100 or so fast-paced "nanogames." Not wholly original, but it doesn't have be.
And, later this spring, THQ is putting out a 3DS version. That, my friends, is what the exchange of money sounds like.
