  • Summary: Sunny skies, lush forest and rolling hills combine to form the land known as Ninjatown where adorable and honorable Ninjas populate this vibrant yet peaceful place. However, after the mysterious eruption of a nearby volcano, Ninjatown is attacked by hordes of sinister enemies lead by Mr. Demon, who, for reasons unknown, is bent on destruction. It is now time to use each of the Ninjas' unique skills and powers - even the Ol' Master Ninja comes out of retirement to fight off the evil and secure Ninjatown, one district at a time.

  1. There are over 30 different maps to try out in Ninjatown, and a decent multiplayer mode to boot, so there's plenty of content here that'll appeal to strategy fans.
  2. Don’t let the cutie-pie exterior fool you — Ninjatown is a gamer’s game through and through.
  3. There's a ton of levels, lots of cool ninjas, and a strong multiplayer mode. This game is highly addictive.
  4. A great game, providing solid, fun gameplay that left me feeling challenged enough (and addicted enough) to keep playing. With each battle lasting about ten minutes, this is a perfect title to play in short bursts and makes for an ideal portable title.
  5. Although Ninjatown’s gameplay is not necessarily my style, it is at its heart a worthy and very sound tower defence game.
  6. Ninjatown does everything well for a tower-defense game on DS.

    The presentation and love put into the character designs and attention to detail carries the simplistic and overly easy gameplay further than it should. If you want a gentle introduction to the genre, this is absolutely perfect.

    The gameplay is simple, quick to learn, and right on for the DS, and the cuteness factor only adds to the enjoyment of this relatively straightforward tower defense game. The music, the graphics, and the style are all fun during the experience, and memorable as well. The only negative: It should have been straightforward to add more maps to the game, whether as part of the story or as extra maps a la advance wars. Expand

    Coming from someone who doesn't normally like strategy games I loved this one. It was cute yet not too childish. The story line was engaging and the levels were nice and diverse. Finished it pretty fast though, would have liked it to be longer. Expand

    Very cute little game. Gameplay wise it's essentially a tower defense game, but the art style and funny characters are where's the "meat" of this game. Good light strategy on the go. Expand

    A very adorable game that has a nice reference to Dragon Ball Z in it. A nice tower-defense strategy to play on-the-go if you're bored. Just don't expect to play it for long; the action gets VERY repetitive VERY quickly. Expand
