Spongebob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake: health upgrade locations

Spongebob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake has a handful of tricky segments throughout its surprisingly lengthy campaign, but it isn’t a game that most would deem to be overwhelmingly challenging. As such, the titular hero’s four underpants – the game’s version of hit points – are usually plenty to get most players through the adventure, especially considering how frequent health refills are across levels. But if you’re looking to add some additional pairs of underoos to your health pool, you won’t want to miss the game’s couple of hidden health upgrades (golden underpants). Read on to find out where to get them.

Karate Downtown Bikini Bottom health upgrade

Note: This health upgrade may only be available after completing the level and returning later.

After making your way through about half of the Karate Downtown Bikini Bottom level, you’ll eventually travel across some rooftops and land in a large circular spot with homes made of cardboard lining the area. Head forward into the next section past the checkpoint and hop on the dumpster directly ahead, then use it to hoist yourself up on the ledge of the brick wall.

Blow a bubble into the nearby inflatable and use it to jump over to the circular platform on the other side, then jump to the smaller one behind it and over to the rooftop. Turn and look left to see the health upgrade, which you can reach by doing a karate kick to the balloon next to it. Easy-peasy!

Medieval Sulfur Fields health upgrade

A little ways into the Medieval Sulfur Fields level, you’ll receive a new main objective of “Find a key to open the stable door,” at which point you’ll need to slam on a button by the stable to open a path up the nearby ramparts. Head up the ramparts and follow the linear path until you find the green key in a chest. From here, continue around the outside of the rampart on the main path, up a seesaw platform, and onto the next section, where you’ll see two spike traps.

Below the spike trap area, on the outer side of the castle wall, will be two floating Tiki heads, and below them is a hidden entrance with some more Tiki heads blocking the path. Jump or glide down to the wall of Tiki heads and attack them to clear the path. Inside this next room is a pair of golden underpants that you can collect to earn yourself another health point. Congratulations on your undies collection!

Hello Neighbor 2 offers impressive open-ended puzzling and one creepy villain
Theodore Masters Peterson in Hello Neighbor 2

Hello Neighbor from 2017 was a thematically creepy game. It followed the story of protagonist Nicky Roth, who, through the player’s input, infiltrated the labyrinthine house of an unhinged man with a few too many dark secrets rolled up his sleeves. Without giving too much away, the original’s three main acts were filled with the same sort of horrors one might expect to find if they were to rummage around in their shady next-door neighbor’s basement in the middle of the night -- only to find the aforementioned neighbor creeping around the corner with a hatchet and a menacing glint in their eye.

But the average neighbor doesn't keep macabre secrets behind traps and puzzles in their basement, which means Hello Neighbor 2 could be the next big thing for anyone who ever fantasized about solving mysteries in the dead of night. Don’t try this at home -- er, your neighbor’s home -- but do try Hello Neighbor 2.

Animal Crossing is one of gaming's most popular franchises, giving players a much-needed break from the world of challenging, narrative-driven, and thought-provoking adventures in favor of zen community management. Few other games have managed to match its unique gameplay loop in ways that feel equally rewarding and relaxing, but that's not stopping Disney from shooting its shot at the genre with Disney Dreamlight Valley.

While the two games are no doubt very similar, Dreamlight Valley has a handful of notable features that will likely sway many players in one direction or the other. Let's take a look at five of the biggest ways these two life simulation titles differ from one another.
