Questions from the comments:

Battle blocks, SASTD, BTD4, and Bloons 2 are all dead. I tried CPR, cloning, thaumaturgy, divine intervention, deals with the devil, and even the dragon balls. What gives?
Have you tried time travel? You can still play SAS TD here. We've currently no available fix for these games and we're not sure if/when we'll get around to fixing it.

Are you willing and/or capable to add a feature allowing players to view their total cumulative play time for NK web games? Just so we can track our stats, this could possibly be implemented in the achievements tab or profile/settings.
It’s not something we’ll look at adding any time soon.

If I remember correctly, glaives are just modified swords from old times. If that is so, why are the BTD glaives different from their real life counterpart?
The Engineer modifies all weapons to deal maximum damage. This improved glaive is cutting bloon technology designed to cut through any bloon in its way!

Please bring back Classic no powers to BFB colosseum in BTD Battles
We’re ironing out a few bugs before releasing this.

had you ever thinked about making catapult a tower itself, based on btd3?
I’m sure it’s crossed a few minds.

You know what else is noice? Steam BTD 6 trading cards.

How in TARNation did you get the name TARN?
I didn’t get the name, the name got me.

Do you care if we use emulators for (single player) NK games?
We don’t support emulators. Plus, you can get most games on Steam or Mobile platforms these days.

How does the prince of darkness revive popped bloons? he cant just blow them back up if they are already Tarn err torn.

Does the Ninja Kiwi HQ try out the races? And more importantly, what time/places do they get?
We sure do. Check out my current best time for this weekends race:

Are Quincy's son and father also going to be having a New Year's Resolution? Is it the same since they are the same person?
You shall never know!

A quick happy birthday to Immy’s wonderful cat Bagel! She’s turning one!


Thanks for tuning in! Good luck trying to beat my race score ;)
Have a great week and be sure to leave any questions or comments in the comment section below.
