Tower Defense Fans - what games?

I was wondering what tower defense games everyone is playing and what you guys recommend- especially for the iPad.

I've been playing a lot of The Creeps! and Fieldrunners, but I haven't wanted to try them on the iPad because it seems they are just scaled up versions with nothing new. Is that not the case?

Anyway, looking for some different opinions.

Not sure if there are iPad versions or not but GeoDefense and GeoDefense Swarm are really good and much more challenging than FieldRunners. Don't know how hard The Creeps! is, have it but have never played it.

Sentinel 1 & 2 are also a lot of fun and Plants vs. Zombies as well.

Defender Chronicles and Elemental Monster TD are also good but I don't really play either of them anymore.

I use an iPod touch so don't know about the iPad.
TD games I like are:
Sentinel 2
Pew Pew Land
Ninja TD
Geo Defense
Crystal Defenders
Defender Chronicles
Geo Defense Swarm
Plants vs Zombies
Tweet Defense
4 Towers
Elemental Monster TD
Star Defense
All great IMO.

Tower Madness, Zombie Attack, BioDefense, Fieldrunners and The Creeps all have iPad versions. All are great (at least on iPhone... I donít have an iPad yet).

Iím amazed how many great TDs (like Defender Chronicles, GeoSwarm, Sweetwater Defense, 7 Cities, Bloons TD, Elemental Monsters, Dungeon Defense) donít seem to have iPad versions! The iPad is the ultimate TD platform.

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. So many to check out! I have seen some of them, but others are new to me.

@Adams I agree, the iPad (and iPhone) are great platforms for TD games!
