What's good: Line up your ninja forces and drive back hordes of enemy creatures in this excellently designed tower defense game for the iPhone and iPod touch! Ninja TD offers a staggering amount of replayability and gameplay that spans five villages. In each, you have to strategically position five different ninjas in formations that will effectively oppose the waves of invaders coming down the path to attack your base. Every ninja has a corresponding color and special ability in varying offensive and defensive levels, and as you make progress, you'll also unlock ninja magic that unleashes concentrated power to further deter enemies. The whole game is seamlessly woven into the concept of natural elements - fire, sand, wind, thunderbolt, and ice - translated into beautifully crafted maps, vibrant colors, and artfully designed ninjas. Think out a strategy while taking into consideration that specific locations enhance the skills of ninjas directly tied to the place. The red ninja, for example, can make unyielding bullets out of volcanic ores found in the fire village, while the yellow ninja unearths treasure buried deep beneath piles of sand. In fact, the game redefines being 'in one's element' in the most literal and creative way. Complete missions to unlock more maps, levels, and difficulty modes - in total, there are thirty stages to play through apart from endless mode, but you can also select the intensity of the battle to suit your preferences. Whether you're a TD novice, mediocre strategist, or experienced gamer, you'll find a perfectly tailored app that'll bring you hours of challenge and tactical fun.

Suggestions for improvement: Aside from some grammatical or typographical errors, and the fact that too many tower defense games can make new ones feel a bit unoriginal, Ninja TD is a beautiful and thorough game.
