The reason the player is being chased by SlendyBob is unknown, but he could, in theory, have become one of Slender Man's Proxies. Unlike in other games, The atmosphere does not become more eerie with pages collected, but Slendypants WILL become more aggressive. When You look at SlendyBob, a loud scream will play, then bad audio of a static-sounding explosion. Like in Sanotorium, Spongebob visibly moves, causing the player to have to move quickly. Also, like in Slendytubbies, The pages can only be found along the road.
The game features two modes, Normal mode, and glowstick mode. Glowstick mode gives the player limited light, making it harder to avoid Slendypants. Both modes have a time limit.
