THQ’s post-Christmas present to you is the first of no doubt many downloadable games featuring the SpongeBob SquarePants license. But unlike most previous games starring Bikini Bottom’s most famous inhabitant, Underpants Slam is actually a pretty decent time-waster.

The general idea in Underpants Slam is to move about each new level avoiding jellyfish, finding items to break, and collecting 99 pairs of underpants. Once all 99 unmentionables are found, SpongeBob and his friends can move on to the next locale.
