If Ninjatown isn't on your radar, it should be. The DS game, due to be released by Southpeak Games in October, has a lot going for it, not least the involvement of Shawn Smith, creator of Shawnimals and former Electronic Gaming Monthly editor, and a concept dreamed up by Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City producer Jeremy Pope.
While Pocket Gamer has seen plenty of cute ninja artwork over the past few months, not too many details have been divulged on this action strategy game. Which is why they have spoken to Brandon Curiel, CEO of Venan Entertainment (the studio developing Ninjatown) who told them why this game will not only out-do PS3 tower defence phenomenon Pixeljunk Monsters but be the best DS game out this year.

GR - "Tower defense has come a long way since its inception in Warcraft 3. Find out what the best of the tower defense genre has to offer."
