Ben 10 OmniGames is a mini-game pack released by Turner EMEA.
“Grab your Omnitrix and prepare for battle in Ben 10 OmniGames! Play as Wildmutt, XLR8 and Fourarms in three explosive games. Test your alien abilities as you battle vicious bats, gruesome slugs and electrifying drones!”
This game is a basically a mini game pack of Ben 10 themed games, the three games currently available are as follows:
- Call of the Wildmutt – A reasonable run and jump game (like canabalt) with Ben leaping over holes in the ground, powering up at times into Wildmutt. 75%
- Fourarms Smash – Tap the screen punching aways oncoming bats that are trying to bite you – Extremely repeative survival game – 55%
- XLR8 to the rescue – A dodge and smash game as you switch to the top, middle or bottom lane of a highway, smashing drones and dodging cars. – 63%
There is a fourth game promised with stink fly, but this is currently locked.
Gameplay wise the mini games are fun to play in small doses and are best for casual gamer. For me the run and jump “Call of the Wildmutt” saves the mini-game set. The games do feel a lot like flash games, and in fact my son informed me that the XLR8 was the same the first level of “Ben to the Rescue” off the CartoonNetwork website, and was not as good.
The graphics and sounds are both good, with all the sounds and visuals that a fan of Ben 10 would be looking for.
On the upside:
- Fun gameplay.
- Universal App.
On the downside:
- The mini-games are pretty basic.
- Feel like converted flash games.
- Currently only three mini games available, with one additional promised.
Overall, this is an enjoyable and playable game. It is a little disappointing at the lack of aliens forms available. I wish that the mini games available did not feel so much like flash games converted to iOS. If you are a fan of Ben 10 this app is worth checking out, but I cannot see you getting your full money worth out of it. If you are not a Ben 10 fan, then look elsewhere, there are some much better mini-game packs available at a lower price.
