Cartoon Network Digital announced today the launch of Cartoon Network TKO: Titanic Kungfubot Offensive, a free real-time multiplayer game that lets fans challenge other players online with head-to-head fighting action using giant robot versions of favorite characters from shows such as Ben 10: Alien Force, Chowder, Total Drama Action, and The Secret Saturdays.
Available to play now at www.cartoonnetwork.com/TKO, the game currently features six robots for players to choose from including Swampfire, Big Chill, Kevin Levin, Zak Saturday, Munya, and Van Rook. Each robot has different powers and attacks, so there are a multitude of special moves for players to master. The game will add a new robot each week for seven weeks, resulting in a total lineup of 13 awesome fighters.
“TKO brings together the best aspects of a great multi-player fighting game with all the humor and personality of Cartoon Network,” said Kitric Kerns, vice-president of Cartoon Network Digital. “Our fans enjoy the ability to challenge each other online while interacting with characters from their favorite shows. TKO was designed to be simple enough for anyone to play, while also providing levels of difficulty for the more advanced player to master.”
TKO provides multiplayer action game experience with high-quality graphics and environments that can be played in most web browsers for both the Mac and PC. Players can track their wins and losses by logging in with their CartoonNetwork.com ID and their stats will appear at the bottom of their game screen. In the weeks to come they will also be able to see their stats on the Top Scores leaderboards.
Cartoon Network Top Scores was recently added to the website so players can gain virtual fame and glory. 100 top gamers for each spotlight game are showcased weekly online. Games featured in the Top Scores section of the site reflect favorite shows currently on the network, such as Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Flapjack, Naruto and The Secret Saturdays.
