The Highly Anticipated Game Co-Developed By Tilting Point, Cooking Game Veteran Nukebox Studios, and Renowned Entertainment Brand, Nickelodeon, is Now Available

NEW YORK -- May 12, 2020 -- SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off, the highly anticipated mobile game that puts fans behind the Krusty Krab grill to serve the characters of the beloved animated series, is now available on mobile devices. Co-developed by Tilting Point and Nukebox Studios in partnership with Nickelodeon, SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off gives players the chance to become the best fry cook under the sea by downloading the game for free on iOS and Android.  A new gameplay trailer of SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off in action can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctPa-V2b9Rw

In SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off, players will experience fun and fast-paced cooking gameplay as they interact with Mr. Krabs, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy and many other familiar faces. Fans can visit their favorite SpongeBob landmarks like the Krusty Krab and Sandy's Treedome; design their own versions of Bikini Bottom restaurants; and cook up grub across hundreds of levels on their journey to be the best fry cook under the sea!

“The deep co-development experience with Tilting Point and the close partnership with Nickelodeon allowed us to see this awesome SpongeBob game come to life and bring a new spin to the franchise we love so much,” said Amit Hardi, CEO at Nukebox Studios. “This is our second title with Tilting Point and really shows how far we have come together as partners and what we can accomplish as a team.”

SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off marks the second partnership between Nukebox Studios and Tilting Point. The companies previously joined forces to launch the hit cooking and food truck management game, Food Truck Chef, which has been downloaded over 25 million times, became the No.1 Android Casual Game in 40 countries (including the U.S.) and made it to the Top 100 Grossing Charts in more than 100 countries on the App Store and Google Play. Prior to its launch, SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off has already generated tremendous excitement as more than 15 million fans pre-registered to play the game.

We couldn’t be more thrilled about launching this unique take on a beloved franchise that is the result of our strong collaboration with Nukebox Studios and Nickelodeon,” said Samir El-Agili, President of Tilting Point. “This is an excellent example of the type of projects we aim to create with our progressive publishing model. After our successful partnership with Nukebox Studios scaling Food Truck Chef, we were both able to benefit from co-developing SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off together from the ground up, and we are very proud of the results.”
