Beamer provides a columns environment for things like this. Have a
look at the user guide.

You do not need figure environment.

This is because there is not enough space to place the minipages is
one line

You have 0.5\linewidth + 0.5cm + 0.5\linewidth > \linewidth

so everything can not come in one line. Either remove the
\hspace{0.5cm} or reduce the width of minipage to 0.45\linewidth or
something smaller, till there is enough space fit everything on a line
