Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SpongeBob SquarePants, of course. But did you know that before he got to live there, he, er, lived somewhere else? And in the new SpongeBob Moves In game released by Nickelodeon, you have to help the famous kitchen, I mean, sea sponge move into Bikini Bottom and into his pineapple house.

Just as Electronic ArtsThe Simpsons: Tapped Out lets you build your very own Springfield, Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob Moves In invites you to build your very own Bikini Bottom.

This means moving SpongeBob into his tropical fruit-shaped abode, getting him a job at the Krusty Krab, and unlocking new characters, buildings, and areas found in the underwater city with a curious combination of words for its name.
