Lock's Quest

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Lock’s Quest has got to be the most unique Nintendo DS video in the year of our Lord 2008. 5th Cell combined a role playing video game with a real time strategy game in a fantasy world set in the past. Confused yet? Well I was until I played the DS game published by THQ. There are three phases to a level in Lock’s Quest. The first one is the town stage where the player talks to different characters moving the story along.

Tower defense game puts a lock on your heart.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this delightful and engaging E-rated game is too hard for young kids. Even if they could play, some of the items you need to make your defenses are too small for even an adult to latch onto with the DS stylus. The game has very mild fantasy violence in the form of punching and detonating bombs as the main character strives to protect his hometown from the invasion of baddies.

  • Excerpt: Recently I had a chance to delve into a new Nintendo DS game from the creators of Drawn to Life. This new game, called Lock's Quest, is about a diabolical mechanical army devastating a kingdom. Nothing is left as village after village fall under their wrath. A young, brave hero, aptly named Lock, is the kingdom's last hope to survive the oncoming invasion.

  • Conclusion: Lock's Quest was one of the best games shown at E3 2008, surprising many gamers with one of the best looking original games on the DS since its release. And, despite a few control issues here or there, it most certainly succeeds in living up to the hype. I loved every minute of the game and am only saddened that the experience is already over. Hopefully a sequel is in the making because this game deserves to have more installments in the series. Recommended.
