Any tower defense games on the DS?

by Ivo Sat Jan 22, 2011 5:46 am

Particularly, any decent or good ones? A friend of mine asked me and I did not remember any...

The only one I know of is Ninja Town. It's a pretty great game though, has a really unique style, similar to a cute-em-up shmup, and the narrative is surprisingly funny at times. It's also very deep and challenging, and is really an all around awesome game. I highly recommend it!

There was a port of Desktop Tower Defense. It's a flash game, so you can try it out. It's fun and quite cheap so if he likes those games it may be worthwile to try.

Plants vs Zombies just came out a few days ago. I highly recommend it. One added bonus over the PC version is that it has VS mode where you can be the plants or the zombies against a buddy. It also has achievements, more mini games and supposedly a bonus level which I haven't seen yet.

Glory Days: Tactical Defense just came for DSiWare and it costs 200 points.

Also check out Lock's Quest. It's a tower defense game with a little more variety.

DSiWare has a whole host of tower defence games. The best one is probably starship defence/starship patrol depending on region. I highly recommend it.

If you're going for actual DS cartridges, I guess I'll second Ninjatown. I only tried it for a bit, but it seemed pretty good.
