Samurai Defender: Ninja Warfare may not bring anything new to the table among the castle defence genre, but it does so in a charming feudal Japanese cartoon wrapper. Despite not setting the video gaming world ablaze (unlike the poor fools rushing at your door) anyone looking to blissfully slaughter wave upon wave of enemy cannon fodder soliciting at your castle gate need not look further.

Samurai Defender is a neat tower defence game, with a simple yet addictive concept involving Japanese warriors attacking your castle. There's plenty to upgrade, with hundreds of levels to conquer, giving this game the potential to keep you busy for hours. If you're a fan of the genre, I'd recommend giving this one a try.
