Fully agree with undeadcow! This game looks similar to PvZ, but offers much more variation. Well worth the regular price of $1.99 and for $.99 it is a steal!

I swear I posted this earlier today, but here I find someone stepped up, thanks for the help guys :-)

We've already updated the game a few times since last month-- soon we'll be adding badges, achievements/game center, cloud saves, horde mode, and of course more episodes.

Got this a couple days ago when I saw the main thread, very recommended at the original price and a good deal!

And yes, its kinda like PvZ but requires much more player attention, nice one!

Hmm... thinking of buying this... I only have $4.81 and this seems like another TD PvZ type even with the moving of ninjas...

It is regretable that every lane based defense game is compared to PvZ. I recommend Ninja Dino Showdown (NDS) and I hate tower defense games because NDS requires much more active control. Not only do you have to frantically move ninjas... you also get bonuses for stacking multiple ninjas in one lane (making it more strategic), can initiate limited ninja special attacks, may need to furiously tap the screen to revive a fallen ninja, or may have to tap attacking dinosaurs to block their special attack. The sort of mini real time strategy mechanic really makes NDS shine verssus the standard tower defense dreck. PvZ always struck be as slower and less difficult (I beat it with ease). Overall NDS feels very polished and has a fun difficulty.

With limited funds it fallls to taste but I've enjoyed NDS. Too bad there is not a lite/trial NDS.

You see it's not that it doesn't seem unique, it really does, but I'm just wondering would I like this and is it addicting to ME. I did get addicted by PvZ tho.

Fun game. It's a lot faster paced than PvZ. Thanks for posting!
