Ninjatown is a peaceful place populated by ninjas. But after a volcanic eruption, Ninjatown gets invaded by enemies and their leader, Mr. Demon, who is bent on destruction.
Ninjatown is based on characters created by toy designer, artist and former Electronic Gaming Monthly editor Shawn Smith. Smith is the artist behind the Shawnimals line of toys, Ninjatown is a spin-off of one of his Shawnimal characters, the Wee Ninja.
The game is a tower defense type strategy game.
The player steps into the shoes of Ol’ Master Ninja, tasked with defending Ninjatown from waves of enemies trying to make their way through the town. To stop them, you construct Ninja Huts along their path, from which Ninjas will emerge to engage the enemy. Building each hut costs you Ninja Star Cookies, the currency of Ninjatown, and as you defeat enemies, you earn more cookies. You then re-invest these cookies into building and upgrading huts to deal with the ever increasing waves of enemies. You can also build something we call Modifier Buildings, that will endow any adjacent huts with a special ability. These include buildings like the Training Dojo, which can increase your attack power, or the Tea Shop, which makes your units move faster.
The final elements are the Tokens, which are won at the end of most maps. Tokens allow you to summon special Ninjas who each have a special, time-limited area-of-effect ability. Examples of these include Baby Ninja who slows down all enemies with its ridiculous cuteness, or Ninja Dropping, who emanates malodorous fumes that damage enemies unfortunate enough to be in the vicinity
looks cute,you play as ninjas and its a defend your castle-esque game,
but instead its defend your town against monsters and such.
