SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off road to huge success and acclamation

SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off saw immediate success upon its announcement in August 2019, with more than 17 million players pre-registered before the launch of the game, the strongest pre-registration performance of any Nickelodeon game ever. At launch, it was one of the top 10 most downloaded games on iOS in 97 countries, and 79 countries on Google Play. Furthermore, it reached the top 100 grossing in 66 countries on iOS and eight countries on Google Play.

In its first week alone, SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off reached over 2.2 million daily active users, and since launch, the game has surpassed 44 million downloads. The game was the recipient of the Players’ Choice award at the 2021 Mobile Games Awards. The game is continuing to enter new markets and recently announced that it will be published in mainland China.

We are committed to being a world leader in mobile publishing, so extending our games to Africa and making them accessible to up to 1.2 billion people in all 54 African countries is a big step and really meaningful to us. Carry1st has uniquely created a publishing platform to unite the entire continent in a way like never before; we look forward to working with them on SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off and exploring other future growth opportunities in Africa for our roster of games.
