As fun a genre as TD is, I find a lot of Tower Defense games are just messy mashes of different damage animations with cliche elemental towers.

Is there a Tower Defense game you'd recommend that's more elegant and simple, yet has a nice variety of towers?

The best I can think of is somewhere between Plants vs Zombies and Kingdom Rush.

I actually found Tower Wars to be pretty enjoyable (it's on Steam), but you pretty much need another person to play against, as its single-level SP training leaves much to be desired. It's designed from the ground up as a multiplayer game.

It's a non-traditional tower defense game but Dungeon Defenders is quite different. You have to run around to place the towers manually, you can attack the enemies with your own weapon (or spend your time/energy repairing and adding to your defenses), and each character plays a bit differently.

Out of the first four characters: The mage pretty much depends on his towers to do the most damage, the knight is kind of a mix of both. The ranger/archer chick has some traps rather than an actual tower (these will degrade over time) and the monk dude is mostly about fighting the monsters himself, but he uses various auras to weaken the enemies or replenish his health.

Best of all you're able to play it online with friends...

I don't know if you'd consider it "elegant" or "Simple" though

Thanks, I'm gonna try Bloons and SSTD, haven't checked out Defenders quest or valley of the forgotten yet.

Also I tried Dungeon Defenders, but it just didn't do it for me.

You could give Revenge of the Titans a try.
