Tower Defense games are a dime a dozen on the App Store (sometimes even cheaper than that!), but Taito has an original interpretation of the game with its own distinct visual style and soudtrack.

Mikado Defenders (or Shogun Defense in Japan) matches its feudal Japan/Sengoku Era setting with an art style inspired by ukiyo-e and sumi-e paintings. It also features music by Taito's talented sound team Zuntata, which, as sister site FingerGaming points out, it "always a good thing".

In the game, players command samurai foot soldiers, archers, and other units to defend their fortress against demonic enemies. They can upgrade the castle with defenses/weapons, attract the help of Guardian Spirits, and recruit historical figures (e.g. Oda Nobunaga, Date Masamune) as samurai commanders with special powers.
