Ben 10 Alien Force: The Rise of Hex is a platformer game based on the popular cartoon series. It’s one of a long line of games based on the cartoon, and features Ben Tennyson, the main character of the show. Ben uses a powerful tool called an Omnitrix to help him fight Hex, his enemy.

The Omnitrix allows him to take the form of various alien beings, which as you can imagine, has some fun applications for gaming.

Unlock new aliens as the game progresses

At the beginning of The Rise of Hex, Ben only has access to 2 alien forms, but you can unlock more through making progress in the game. Switching between forms is easy, and it’s usually obvious what alien form will be most useful for each situation. Each time you ascend to a new level, you’ll get a new alien form that will be useful in the coming platformer.

Repetitive Gameplay

Almost every puzzle in the game is in the form of switch puzzles. You have to move platforms through switches in order to open up gaps and make your way through. Although this is entertaining on the first level or two, after that it quickly becomes mind numbing as you find yourself faced with even more of these puzzles. Leveling is split up into 3 “themes” and these themes all mean the entire section uses the exact same tricks to open everything up. After the first level, it’s not very fun anymore.

Some technical issues

The actual graphics of Ben 10 look pretty good. If you capture a screenshot of the game and look at it, the work looks crisp and clear, but actually play the game and issues become obvious. Loading screens take forever to get through, and there are some issues with close combat.

In combat situations, there can also be a visual lag which can make successfully playing the game problematic. These are all annoyances that combine to make the game very difficult to enjoy.

Very short play time

Any player with reasonable experience in gaming can get through the entire main story in just a couple hours. There’s also little replay value in it, since the game is already fairly dull and repetitive as it is. If you’re just looking at a way to kill time, consider playing the Teen Titans Go! App which offers free play without the need for in-app purchases (although there are some) and better puzzles.

5

Although Ben 10 Alien Force: The Rise of Hex has all the right pieces to make a video game, it isn’t connected well. The results feel a bit like a beginner artist trying to paint their first masterpiece. The pieces may be all there, but it lacks the heart of what makes a game fun.

Pros:

  • It features Ben 10

Cons:

  • Lack of replay value
  • Repetitive
  • Glitchy
