Cartoon Network launches Ben 10 Omnitrix Glitch Microsite

Published on: 28th September 2018

Kids can help Ben 10 fix the Omnitrix through brand-new immersive microsite and coding games.

Cartoon Network EMEA has announced the launch of a brand-new Ben 10 microsite, featuring a series of games that will introduce kids to the basics of coding in a fun, interactive way. Together with Ben 10, kids can complete missions to fix the Omnitrix and save the day.

Omnitrix Glitch comprises four exclusive games – Action Attack, Alien Alert, Omni Switch and DNA Decode – each featuring one of the core elements of coding, such as Commands, Functions, States and Debugging, to progress through the levels and help Ben. Upon completion of the games, kids will receive certificates that detail the coding principles they have experienced on their journey through the site. The missions are an exciting and engaging way to help kids understand the basics of coding and computer programming as they solve puzzles and battle enemies along the way.

What’s more, this brand-new site goes beyond the games and gives kids access to exclusive content about the worlds of Ben 10’s aliens, as well as a chance to get to know more about each of the ten aliens, through character profile cards and videos.

Lesley Bailey, VP, channel marketing and brand management, Turner EMEA, commented: “We know that fans of Ben 10 really want to be Ben, and we are constantly looking at new ways to offer them a deeper dive into Ben’s world and a richer experience when they get there. This immersive new site does just that and more, by gently introducing the valuable, modern life skill of coding in a very fun and accessible way.”

The Omnitrix Glitch microsite is live now across EMEA, where it is available in 17 languages.
