Cartoon Network series Ben 10 has inspired a new mobile game based on the origin story of its 10-year-old titular character.
Ben 10: Up to Speed launches globally today on iOS, Google Play and Amazon for US$2.99. It follows Ben as he goes on summer vacation and discovers and alien artifact called Omnitrix that transforms him into alien heroes. Players can then act as Ben and his cosmic alter egos, while also trying to save the world from evil. There are five alien forms and 60 levels that users can currently play, but more will be added as the TV series progresses.
The game also features 3D runner-style controls, multiple character options (including their own alien transformations), upgrades and varying path levels.
The mobile release follows Ben 10‘s recent relaunch. The series originally debuted on Cartoon Network in 2006, and was brought back with a new 2D-animated iteration (40 x 11 minutes) that can be previewed on the Cartoon Network app and VOD services. The series will be released in the US and Latin America this spring, after already premiering across Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It also already has a master toy partner in Playmates and will get its own YouTube channel courtesy of DHX Media’s online kids network WildBrain.
