Excerpt: Have I mentioned that I have been on a tower defense genre tear as of late? Well I have been. They interest me, and I have been looking for them as I investigate games to review for the magazine. I explained how we found NinjaTown in my preview. Please read it online for that piece of history. This Nintendo DS game uses cute looking little ninja characters. There is an entire franchise of these characters, and they have appeared in different games. Which is cool.
Excerpt: I would advise anyone who thinks of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands as a simple movie tie-in to change that preconception right away. Instead, think of Ubisoft Montreal’s latest middle eastern adventure as a return to the Sands of Time trilogy, with the familiar play mechanics that many thought were missing from the Prince’s 2008 outing, and as an accomplished, albeit minimally progressive entry into the respected franchise.
Excerpt: Don't let the cutie-pie exterior fool you - Ninjatown is a gamer's game through and through. The units in this tower-defense title are versatile and useful, enemies are diverse and deadly, and there are enough power-ups and options to keep things fresh. Best of all, levels don't seem to have a preset way to beat them, unlike many tower-defense games on the market.
Excerpt: Everyone loves ninjas. Everyone has at one point in their lives imagined themselves as one of the cut-throat assassins, silently dropping out of a tree in some forest somewhere and slicing and dicing a pirate, perhaps, before disappearing in a puff of purple smoke. They're just plain cool , and not, most definitely not, cute. But the ninjas in Ninjatown, the DS tower defence strategy game based on the Wee Ninja from the US-based Shawnimals plush toy range, are just that.
Excerpt: If there were an award for fastest growing new game genre in the last couple of years, I’m sure that the tower defence genre would be one of the contenders. Just in case you have been living under a rock for the last five years, a tower defence game requires you to build turrets to defend a base from incoming waves of enemies. All current generation consoles have at least one title that represents the genre.
Excerpt: Ninjatown is a great little tower defence game that should really appeal to fans of the genre. It doesn’t really attempt to introduce any new concepts to the genre, it’s just a solid nuts and bolts affair, with a cute face and an endearing personality, and it’s well worth a look. The story revolves around the citizens of Ninjatown and their battles with an evil villain, Mr. Demon. Mr. Demon is intent on stealing the Ninja’s cookie recipe.
Excerpt: Mr. Demon and his Wee Devils are attacking Ninja Town! Fight back with ninjas, timing, and strategy in this tower defense game. Kidzworld has the ninja cookies and facts on this hilarious and addicting game.
