SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off get a boost in SA

The cooking-themed SpongeBob SquarePants game for mobile and PC has prizes to share with players in South Africa via South African content creators.



Africa’s leading mobile games publisher Carry1st has partnered with Tilting Point and Nickelodeon to bring Bikini Bottom’s famed Krabby Patty to Africa with their latest release of the mobile game SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off, available on Google Play and the App Store.

At the time of its initial global launch in 2019, the mobile game already had 17 million players pre-registered to play, the strongest pre-registration performance of any Nickelodeon game ever. Since then, it has been downloaded 44 million times and has gone on to win the Players’ Choice award at the 2021 Mobile Games Awards

“We’re excited to bring SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off to Africa through our partnership with Tilting Point and Nickelodeon,” says Carry1st co-founder and CEO Cordel Robbin-Coker. “SpongeBob SquarePants is incredibly popular in Africa, and we can’t wait to share the game with its many fans. We look forward to connecting our users with even more titles and iconic franchises in the future.”

Unleash your culinary genius

With the game, you get to join SpongeBob SquarePants on a hilarious culinary adventure through the restaurants and kitchens of Bikini Bottom! The game allows you to build your kitchen and set up your restaurant as you race against the clock to serve delicious food.

And the best part? You won’t be limited to the Krusty Krab. If you’re up for the challenge, you can take on steaks and ribs in Sandy’s Treedome, hot dogs in Weenie Hut Jr’s, and even more in the other restaurants and kitchens under the sea.
