In Nickelodeon’s Splat Attack!, cartoon characters lifted from classic shows like SpongeBob Squarepants, Invader Zim, Hey Arnold!, and Rugrats! are dropped into a food court, where they proceed to duke it out in a food fight battle royale to prove who is the “coolest” team. Each player picks their own team of characters and assigns them “Cool Points,” then use cards representing various food items to “splat” their opponents with messy foodstuffs. Getting splatted can not only cost characters their Cool Points, but taking out an opponent can award the attacker coveted Golden Cool Points. When the supply of Golden Cool Points runs out, the team with the most Cool Points left wins.
IDW is funding the production of Nickelodeon’s Splat Attack! through a Kickstarter campaign that has attracted $91,923 in pledged support from 1,252 backers (an average of $73.42 per backer) with eight days remaining. The campaign includes a retailer-only package that includes six copies of the game and the expansion, along with six Kickstarter exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles expansions and all stretch goals.
Splat Attack! will follow another NickToon inspired IDW Game releasing in September: the Invader Zim Doomsday Dice Game (see “ ‘Invader Zim Doomsday Dice Game’”).
