Between my love for the USA channel’s Psych and Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants, it could be said that I like pineapples. That being said, our porous friend is starring in a new game released onto the Play Store today that can get you your kiddos hyped for the upcoming movie set to hit theatres on February 6th.

SpongeBob: Sponge on the Run will let you take Mr. SquarePants on a race with Plankton to find the missing Krabby Patty formula. There are three zones you can race through (Bikini Bottom, Apocalyptic Bikini Bottom, and the human beach) and you can even transform into Super SpongeBob should the waters get too choppy. Oh, and there’s a Mermaid Man costume you can put SpongeBob in, which is awesome! Read more

The game looks fairly well done and features music from a few different artists under Sony Music’s arm. Between the music and several mini-games, this one might be worth checking out for a few laughs while killing some time. Read more

Google’s Best Games of 2014 list released

Google is back at it today with a year end “best of” list for 2014. Following up on the release of best apps from a couple days ago, Google narrows things down just a bit with the release of their “Best Games of 2014.”

Like the list of best apps, the list of best games is dominated by free titles. It appears only seven out of the 100 games on the list are not free. Keep in mind though that game developers are much more likely to implement a variety of in-app purchases within their titles, whether it is things like power-ups, new levels, extra adventures or other features.

Hit the source link to check out the entire list. How many of these titles have you played in the past year? Any hidden gems out there that did not make the cut with Google that you would like to share with us?
