Ben 10: Omniverse Art Style – Good or Bad?

Okay, Cartoon Network’s Ben 10 Week has come and gone, and as promised, we got ourselves a sneak peek of the new addition to the Ben 10 franchise with Ben 10: Omniverse. It’s cool and all, with our resident galactic protector teaming up with his younger self (or is it the other way around? Time Travel discussion has always blown my mind!) for twice the action, but it seems that a lot of fans are disappointed with the new art style, which seems slightly deformed compared to the previous shows’.

Cartoon Network Reveals Ben 10: Omniverse Slate for November

Cartoon Network Reveals Ben 10: Omniverse Slate for November

Last Saturday, November 16, Ben Tennyson found out that Khyber the Huntsman and all the other aliens he’s had to face so far are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg, as he must now contend with one foe who knows him better than any other enemy – his evil twin, Albedo. The episode, titled “Duel of the Duplicates,” required the combined forces of Ben, Rook and Grandpa Max to stop Albedo – not to mention his aliens managed to take on their Ultimate forms for the first time in the Omniverse series.

After the Duel of the Duplicates episode, Ben had to face Albedo again in “The Ultimate Heist,” as the doppelganger seeks a device that will allow him to revert back to his Galvan form.

Cartoon Network Releases Ben 10 Slammers Card Game for iOS

Ben-10-Slammers

It’s a good day to be a Ben 10 fan, especially if you’re a Ben 10 fan who owns an iOS device, as Cartoon Network has launched a new card game based on the eponymous galactic protector. Dubbed Ben 10 Slammers, the game’s storyline has Sumo Slammers recognizing Ben 10’s mass market appeal to the point of creating a card-battling game based on his exploits. Having caught wind of this, Ben Tennyson decides to prove that he’s the best at his own game, going against friend and foe alike, human and non-human, in a quest to become the one true Galactic Champion.

As expected of any card battling game, Ben 10 Slammers will require a little bit of strategy and skill in deck-building, as you face off against 24 different opponents in an exciting single player mode. Or if you’re feeling confident, you can enter the multiplayer mode and challenge other people to see who’s really the best. The game features stunning graphics that take full advantage of what Apple’s iOS devices has to offer, framed by deep, rewarding gameplay that lets you level up your characters and unlock favorite alien forms such as Bloxx, Feedback, Heatblast, Kickin’ Hawk, Ball Weevil, Four Arms and more!

Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Xenodrome Review

mza_2800851623389469572.320

We covered Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Xenodrome when it first came out several months ago, but since I had no access to a tablet (the game is out for iOS and Android-based devices) at that time, we were unable to post a proper review, and instead provided basic info about the game based on promotional materials and video demonstrations.

However, I now have access to an el cheapo generic Android tablet, and since I discovered that it’s good enough to run Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Xenodrome, I figured I might as well post a review.

Good news first: it’s a beautiful game that takes advantage of cel-shading techniques to provide 3D visuals that look like they were taken straight out of the cartoon. And it’s not resource-intensive, as evidenced by the fact that I can run it on my cheap tablet (which only had a 1 Ghz dual core processor and a Mali GPU.)

New Ben 10 Omniverse DVD Slated for June

Fans of Ben 10: Omniverse will want to keep a space in their DVD rack empty, as Cartoon Network’s hit animated action series will be returning this June 9 via a new DVD collection titled “Ben 10 Omniverse: Heroes Rise.”

Ben 10 Omniverse: Heroes Rise consists of two discs and contains 10 action-packed episodes from the first season of Ben 10: Omniverse. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Cartoon Network DVD if there are no bonus content, so Heroes Rise will contain two bonus features titled “Alien Reveals” and “Alien Database.” The 2-Disc Set will be retailing with an MSRP of $19.97.

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens Arrives on DVD This April

News has been quiet on the Ben 10 front lately, and while there are a lot negative feedback concerning the direction of the franchise via Ben 10: Omniverse (you can participate in the ongoing discussion about the new art style in here), fans are still willing to give it a chance, and of course, there’s also the previous iterations of the franchise to look back to. And fans will be able to do just that, as one of the more recent movies, the CG-animated Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens, will be coming to DVD Tuesday, April 16 (according to Cartoon Network’s official Ben 10 supersite).
