Following in the cel-shaded footsteps of Dragon Ball Z and Naruto comes another cartoon-turned-game, Ben 10. And like those, this is an all out beat 'em-up featuring cartoon children. Playing as Ben Tennyson, you own an alien device called an Omnitrix - a watch-like object that when activated can transform Ben into all manner of interesting beings, each with their own unique abilities.

Among his repertoire of alter-egos is a four-armed beast that's strong as a box of bears. There's a flame man who can extinguish fire by absorbing the heat, and a speedy reptile thing that can zip around quickly. You'll be flicking through these forms to overcome various puzzles, while repeatedly knocking the bolts out of waves of robots.
