Secret Files: Tunguska

Secret Files: Tunguska

Release Date: June 22, 2010
(Currently available in the UK/EU only) On the 30th of June 1908, an explosion with the destructive power of 2,000 Hiroshima bombs rocked the Tunguska region in central Siberia, felling more than 6,000 square metres of pine forest. The explosion could be heard within a radius of 1,000km. Witnesses saw an oblong object, glowing in a blueish-white light, fall from the sky. A 20km high pillar of light was followed by a mushroom-shaped black cloud. The three following nights were so bright all over Europe that you could read a newspaper outside without additional light. In California, on the other hand, they noted a continuing reduction of sun light. Up to this day it is still not clear what really triggered the Tunguska catastrophe.

In Ben 10: Protector of Earth, players take on the role of Cartoon Network's everyday-kid-turned-superhero, Ben Tennyson. Using the power of the Omnitrix which has embedded itself on Ben's wrist, players battle as one of five popular alien heroes from the show. By taking on these amazing powers, players can save the world through the game's diverse challenges, puzzles and skirmishes. At first glance, 10-year-old Ben looks like your average, everyday kid, but upon closer inspection it's plain to see he's the world's youngest action hero stopping evildoers from Earth and space. With the help of the Omnitrix, Ben can transform into heroic alien forms with extraordinary powers. The evil Vilgax, with the help of Kevin 11 and the Forever Knights, has set in motion a plan to capture the Omnitrix and the world is in danger. [D3Publisher of America]
