Turkish Ben 10 Games (partially found Proje Calide's promotional games; late 2000s-early 2010s)
The Turkish Ben 10 Games are a group of video games developed by Proje Calide (Project Calide), made to promote the animated series Ben 10 that was becoming popular in Turkey at the time.
The 2005 Ben 10 animated series premiered in Turkey around possibly the year 2009. Cartoon Network was officially launched in Turkey in 2008 and Ben 10 was aired about a year later. Its spin-off came around in the early 2010s, so the games likely came around in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Not much is known about the Proje Calide developers, who seem to have made a lot of promotional deals back in the day. Their website does mention a partnership with Cartoon Network, so it can be assured that the games in question are official. These games are nowhere to be found online anymore.
