SpongeBob Flash Games Archive

Recommended Posts

For those of you who don't know already know, Nickelodeon overhauled their website earlier this year, taking down all their videos and games and redirecting them to Nick's apps. I, like I'm sure many of you have, spent hours and hours as a kid playing Nick.com's games, especially their SpongeBob games, and even though most of them were coded in Flash, a software that is pretty much the poster boy for outdated tech, I believe these games should be able to be enjoyed as long as we're feasibly able to play them. That's why, with help from web curator and fellow SpongeBob fan Wumbo (no, not the one you're thinking of), I've been able to save most of Nick.com's old SpongeBob games and restore them as well as I could to a dedicated section of SBC, which I'm about to announce now:

The SpongeBob Flash Games Archive!

50+ games are now available and playable on SBC. While most, if not all, of these games, are available on other websites, most of those sites are sketchy and slap ads on the games without attributing their developers. My goal with this archive is to provide an easy-to-use source of SpongeBob flash games that gives credit to the people behind them and doesn't try to blow up your computer. Since it's a flash games archive, you do need a device that can run Flash in order to play the games, meaning iPads and other mobile devices probably won't do. You also may have to toggle some browser settings to get Flash to work for SBC, and if you need help with that, let me know. I've been working on this for a while, and I'm happy to finally reveal it as an Easter weekend treat to you all. :)

This is really cool, but I’m worried that these very likely might not work anymore after Flash gets discontinued next year. Are any of these getting converted to HTML5 or something?

I do plan to release some of the games with a standalone Flash player after Flash is gone for good, but many of the games do need to be on a server like this one to function properly, so if there's a game you've been itching to play again, I would do it sooner rather than later.

Alright so I saw a concern of these games eventually not being able to work anymore due to Flash's discontinuation next year, and I felt the best way to archive these is through this SWF file player I found

http://www.swffileplayer.com/

To download the games in their SWF form of the archive that JCM posted:

- Right click and left click on View Page Source

- Press Ctrl + F simutaneously and search for SWF

- There should be a link that has a simplified title of the game with .swf at the ending of it, the link should also be UNDERLINED and clickable

- Click it and accept the download to your computer

- Go to your SWF player and left click Open and find the game you just downloaded and enjoy!

 

NOTE: I tried doing this with some of the Flash games on the archive that are younger, which are from about 10 or less years ago, and the method I stated won't necessarily work with these games, to download these, you must use Inspect Element and navigate through it to find the .swf link of the game.

WARNING: Also please note some of these games are very old as why they are unstable if you download them, it is very likely for these to have lots of bugs and crashes when attempting to play some, yet on the bright side, a handful of these games work perfectly fine.

Sorry for not updating this in a super long time, but I've added 25 new games, with more to come over the next few days. You can find them at the top of the Games page under "New Additions". With just under five months of Flash support left, there's not a lot of time left to play your favorite games, so if there's any I've missed, please let me know!
