    Lock's Quest is a twist to the tower defense genre with RTS. A little gem from 5th Cell that fans of the genre shouldn't miss.

    Deep and engaging adventure that throws different elements like tower defense, RTS and RPG into the mix with nice results.

    Lock's Quest is definitely a game worthy of bringing back from obscurity but this version contains performance issues that frequently make it tough to enjoy. However, if you overlook these parts then it can be one fulfilling blend of gameplay elements.

    The original game was a lot of fun, but this PS4 port feels and looks extremely outdated. If you want to play a DS game on PS4 though, be our guest.

    I wanted to like Lock’s Quest. For a fan of strategy, RPG, and puzzles Lock’s Quest could have been one of those titles that brought the three together properly. Nine years ago on the DS, it probably did it fairly well, but this port has a number of issues that could do with addressing. The camera and lack of explanation for your abilities are the most glaring ones, and once you settle into a tactical groove early on, things soon become dull. Lock’s Quest is a game that had potential, but it feels squandered.

    Nothing I wrote here in 2008 applies to the ugly, sh.tty, port job with woefully poor controls and instances of the whole thing being plaing f.cking broken.

    Just bought the game at Humble Bundle and paid less than US$1. That's my only relief because Lock's Quest is a mess.

    Played 3 stages and in both of them the towers did not behave the way they should: how can towers don't shoot in the enemy in a tower defense game? The art is cool, the idea for the game is nice, but man I'm sad about the towers being destroyed because they were not shooting the enemies. That's all. It's 2018 November. Fix it.

    This is a poorly made crappy port of a wonderful DS game. If you're looking for a good game, play the original on the DS. This version is fullThis is a poorly made crappy port of a wonderful DS game. If you're looking for a good game, play the original on the DS. This version is full of glitches, and it's honestly not a good game. I don't know how you can turn a game without any bugs into a glitchy mess such as this, but that's what the developers did. Expand
