  • Around 30 different game maps to play through, with three difficulty settings.
  • Players have the option to use their iPod during gameplay.
  • The game interface is simple and very user friendly.


  • There’s nothing particularly new to the TD genre on offer.
  • Despite the increasing difficulty, gameplay can still get a bit repetitive after a while.
  • There are no online leaderboards, not even for the endless mode.


If you are a fan of TD games looking for a change of scene then Ninja Td is a solid and worthwhile choice.

If the title hadn’t given it away, then yes, Ninja TD is a tower defence game with ninjas. Players must stop the incoming evil forces by placing different ninjas and utilizing different magic spells. The game offers some nice variation to the tower defence genre but if you’ve played any of these games before, you’ll know what to expect.

Players place ninjas around the map by tapping on their icon in the shop at the bottom of the screen and dragging them up to where you like. You can purchase additional ninjas and upgrade your existing ones in order to accommodate the increasing enemy attacks. The game features five different worlds to choose from, each with six levels each and three challenging difficulties, giving players a multitude of gameplay options.

The game’s presentation is very well done and polished. And while the sound comprises of some epic battle music, players are free to use their iPod as an alternative. The game features the one main mode but while there are a number of levels and difficulties to choose from, the game doesn’t feature any online leaderboard options.

Ninja TD offers some solid tower defence gameplay with a lot of variety. It’s a little disappointing to see that there are no online leaderboard options but this won’t stop you from enjoying the game or replaying levels for a better personal score. Although the gameplay itself is nothing new or revolutionary, but for everything that it does, it does right.
