Knockback Works (C.E.O. Takatoshi Akiyama) announces the Japanese launch of the mobile tower defense game ‘Cartoon Duel’ this October 22nd, in collaboration with the Korean developer ‘MUST Games’.\u2028‘Cartoon Duel’ is a reboot of the massively popular ‘Cartoon Defense’ series of games (with over 5 million unique downloads!), where players must protect their tower and attack enemy forces using simple controls.


A one-eyed prince is in love with the princess of the ‘Two-eyed Kingdom’, but he is at odds with the princesses’ older brother. This quarrel leads to a war between the ‘One-eyed Kingdom’ and the ‘Two-eyed Kingdom’. \u2028 The objective of the game is to successfully defend against incoming enemy forces, who are looking to take down your tower, within an allotted time.

Key Features:

■ Unique to Cartoon Duel, is the ability to capture enemy’s soldiers, turn them into prisoners of war and make them fight against their own kingdom!

■ As pioneered by the ‘Cartoon’ series, attacks come from the East, West and the skies themselves.

■ A variety of cute cartoon characters will fight in battle, possessing various unique skills with which to attack the enemy nation.

Knockback Works:

As a Japanese publisher, ‘Knockback Works’ has members including the C.E.O. Takatoshi Akiyama who are veterans with experience in companies such as SEGA, GameOn, Netmarble Japan, and other large game companies. \u2028 These members have managed and operated ‘Black Desert Mobile’ by ‘Pearl Abyss’ and were responsible for the game being a large hit in Japan. \u2028 In addition, Knockback Works is also currently working on ‘Moomin Move’. \u2028 As with the case of Knockback Works collaborating with Korean game developer ‘MUST Games’ on ‘Cartoon Duel’, Knockback Works plans to launch many more games, firstly to the Japanese market and then global market from now on.
