Ninjatown (DS)


While depicting ninja as anything other than silent, throat-cutting assassins generally means a game is headed in the wrong direction, SouthPeak Games' DS adaptation of the Shawnimals line of toys proves that preconception false. With an intuitive...

Ninjas are truly awesome, and cute now! With cute, stuffed origins in Shawnimals, Venan Entertainment's Ninjatown avoids the pitfalls of many a licensed game and delivers a portable tower defense...

Quirky and fun ; Well-paced for portable gameplay ; Plenty of maps

TNA Impact!


\r\n TNA Impact reminds me of a bratty little kid. You know the type, always running around making bold claims, kicking people in the shins, and talking about how big and strong he\'s going to be when he grows up. Since he\'s just a kid, you have to...

Forget saving the world or surviving post-apocalyptic wastelands: Haven?t you ever wanted to protect the most supreme Ninja Star cookie recipe from the likes of business demons that drink too much coffee? Or would you like to prevent the walls of a...

Losing a few points here and there doesn't stop this game from being some of the most fun you can have on the DS.

Ninjatown on Nintendo DS


Ninja Defense

If you look at Ninjatown with a magnifying glass, it is easily seen that this game was created using nothing but existing gameplay mechanics from games before it. The key here is that this title has so much unique personality, it really gives the...

Ninjatown Nintendo DS Review


Whereas most ninja games involve lots of bloodshed and decapitations, Ninjatown is a cute tower defense game appropriate for all ages. These guys would much rather make cookies (the game's currency) than mix it up with hooligans, but when their arch...

Lots of huggable ninjas, head-bopping music, addictive tower defense gameplay

We wish the top screen map was bigger

After years of spilling real blood, ninjas turned to video games, where they achieved success battling demons and exacting revenge on village burning chumps. Now those silent and deadly killers turn to a new venture: cookie baking. At least that's what...

A new DS game that is based on a line of toys and comics for young children would expectedly be akin to shovelware, a husk of a game that is nothing more than marketing assistance funded by its purchasers as much as its purveyors. Ninjatown is not that...

E3 2008: Ninjatown hands-on preview


We all know the Tower Defense games have taken off in the last year and a half. What once started as a simple flash game has expanded into a verifiable genre. So what's someone to do to make their tower defense styled game stand out? The simple answer...

For fans of ninjas or fans of tower defense games, Ninjatown should be a solid title to go with. The units are fun, the action is as intense as any other great tower defense game, and fighting demons with ninja poop will never, ever get old.

The Miriam-Webster dictionary defines a ninja as "a person trained in ancient Japanese martial arts and employed especially for espionage and assassinations." Traditionally, ninjas are badass. They're silent assassins capable of removing one's limbs in...
