The Idiot Box is a cancelled game developed by THQ and to be published by the Nickelodeon before the closure of THQ financial problems. The game for the first time would have the main character Squidward rather than Bob or Patrick, and that would be a game much more realistic than the others in the series, since it would be developed in Unreal Engine 4, would have surround sound, and would be available curiously at the Wii U and Wii 2, and only the Wii 2 has support for Unreal Engine 4. Based on SpongeBob episode with the same name.
The game begins with Bob and Patrick standing in front of a mailbox. Suddenly a truck arrives at the yard of house Squidward unloading a giant box with an LED TV. Patrick pronounced: Wow! Our box arrived! and open the box. With a great effort, Bob and Patrick remove the TV from the box, and throw in the trash, leaving only an empty box. Squidward, who was watching all the window, decides to go out to see what was happening. Bob and Patrick are hidden inside the box to play. Squid, estranged with the situation says: "Let me see if I understand: you bought a giant television, just to be able to have the box?" and two out of the box. Patrick pronounces: "I thought it would not work." "I had something else I would like to ask, what was it, aa ... Oh, I remember!" and shouts: "BY CHANCE YOU HAVE NO BRAIN NO ?!" and Bob says: "Squidward, do not need television, all we need is a box, and IMAGINATION!". "Great, SpongeBob! Can I have a TV?". Bob: "With IMAGINATION, I can be whatever! I want a pirate! ARGH!!! A footballer! HUP!!!!" and Patrick interrupted, saying, "A star of the sea". Squidward: "But, Patrick, you are already a starfish." "See? It works, try it!". "Gosh, I did not know that! Let me try, let's see .. I'm imagining myself watching TV, and there she is! I can get the TV?". Bob: "But of course!". "Wow, what a beauty!" And after removing trash television, takes her to his house to pushing. Bob and Patrick decide to play to climb mountains hiding inside the box. After realizing that he had forgotten the remote control, you decide to go to the backyard again to the yard again to search for him and discovers that the control was on the side of the box. After saving control in your pocket, notes the two inside the box climbing the supposed mountain, followed by wind sounds amazing and avalanches, while Patrick screamed trying to overcome a stone, "Bob, I'm doing everything !!" and Bob tells Patrick, "Patrick, better keep it down, not to cause avalanches." "What ?!" "I said it's better to talk down to not cause avalanches!", "What to do down it ?!" and Bob shouts: "It is DOWN TALK BEST BEFORE ..." and Squidward, outside, kick the box, also shouting, "Let's shut up you two !!" and causes an avalanche inside the box, so great, that opens and sucks Squidward into it. Then the game begins.
|SpongeBob||It is the best friend of Patrick and the annoying neighbor Squidward. It is a happy person all the time, despite winning just the place where you work.|
|Patrick||It is the best friend of Bob and also neighbor, however, this does not irritate as much as Bob Squidward. His life is summed up in two words: "Oops, I forgot!", For not being a very intelligent person.|
|Squidward||Interestingly, the main character of the game. It's a grouchy person currently, however, it appears much calmer than in the episodes, although still kicking things and get angry in the game|

In terms of gameplay, the game appears to be a little different from other series: Squidward is a little faster than Bob and Patrick, despite having the suction cups suck to the ground. The controls are easier and quicker to learn, since the character to cling to a wall, it is only necessary that the X button is pressed twice. The graph is much more realistic and can be compared with the current animation series added realistic shadows and animation of unrivaled quality. It would be possible to play with friends through each console server with Online IdiotBox available through THQ's servers if the company went bankrupt not.
