Spongebob's Truth or Square, is a video game based on the SpongeBob SquarePants episode with the same title. This video game is based on SpongeBob's 10th Anniversary. This is the first game developed by Heavy Iron Studios as a spun off company.

SpongeBob SquarePants has gotten himself into quite a predicament. After being entrusted by Mr. Krabs to keep the Krabby Patty formula safe, SpongeBob is overcome with grief for losing the recipe. He then relies on the help of the most unlikely companion, Plankton, who wants the secret Krabby Patty recipe for himself. With the help of his friends, SpongeBob must use Plankton’s memory machine to retrace the happiest moments of his life to find the Krabby Patty formula in time for the Krusty Krab’s Eleventy Seventh anniversary.

Emulation Information

Controller Map Overlap

SpongeBob's Truth or Square is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.


Controller Issues

You must uncheck "Enable Speaker Data" if you are using a real Wiimote, otherwise it will likely disconnect.

Garbled Text

If you have Texture Cache set to "Fast" then some text in the game will have missing letters or words. If you have Texture Cache set to "Safe" then the text will appear as it normally would.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.


Config Setting Notes
