Over a decade ago, a fine real-time strategy game came to Nintendo DS and took the hearts of players and reviewers (as of July 30th, 2019, Lock’s Quest is rated “80” on Metacritic.com, based on 32 critics) by storm! Lock, a young, brave hero, is the last line of defense of his village against the hordes of Lord Agony, the Clockwork Army. Lock has just learned the skills of an Archineer, a builder of magical, mechanical devices and with his wide array of customized towers, traps, walls, weapons, and other defenses it’s up to you and Lock to stop the Invasion and rise to become the one true hero to protect the whole kingdom.
Lock’s Quest blends real-time strategy gameplay with RPG elements and the classic Tower Defense formula and combines them with a fully-fledged storyline. The gameplay is divided into three parts: In the story part, you travel the Kingdom with Lock, talk to NPCs, take quests, get new equipment and experience the story. When enemy forces appear, it’s time to prepare your defensive structures in the build mode – place towers, walls, traps and customize them. Add an acid attack to a tower for example, or harden your walls by using stone instead of wood. The third part of gameplay starts, when the battle commences: Roam the battlefield with Lock, smash enemies, repair towers and walls and use your super attacks wisely. Lock’s Quest will be a premium game, with a price at 7.99 $ / 7.99 €. There will be no microtransactions, neither ads nor loot box gambling – just a great game for a fair price.
