Lock's Quest 

 

It has been close to ten years since Family Friendly Gaming last sounded off on Lock's Quest. Back then it was on the Nintendo DS. In fact after playing Lock's Quest on Steam, it has encouraged me to play the physical version on the Nintendo DS again. There is something about holding a case and a cartridge in your hand. It feels like real gaming to me. Plus no one can update a retro game and change it on you after it is released.

I am thankful THQ Nordic sent Family Friendly Gaming a digital download code for the 1.4 gig size file. This role playing game is a mixture of different styles. The first part of Lock's Quest is to build defenses with the money you have. Then we battle the monsters of the Clockworks horde. We can fight then and fix the defenses at the same time in Lock's Quest.

There are neat little micro games that pop up while we are playing Lock's Quest. We move a gear from left to right so many times, tap numbers from one to however high it goes, and more. These help us while we are battling or repairing in Lock's Quest. Do not let Lock lose all of his health or you will fail a level. There are also other conditions where levels can be failed.

I like the music in Lock's Quest. There is also plenty of text to explain what is going on in this fantasy world. I like how the enemies are robots. They will fall apart as their expiration date time stamp is met. We can also pummel them into falling to pieces. Lock's Quest has some very retro graphics in it. Lock's Quest did not look great in 2008 on the small screen. It looks stretched on a larger screen now.

I ran into some annoying glitches here and there while playing Lock's Quest. Things like the game told me to click somewhere and I did. Nothing happened. I had to go to the main menu and come back. Then what it told me to do actually worked. At times I had to go back through certain parts to get back to where the glitch happened. The glitches are not game breaking, but noticeable.

I love the defensive nature of Lock's Quest. I should warn you that Lock's Quest is a challenging game. Do not expect to breeze through this role playing tower defense hybrid. Parts of Lock's Quest can be frustrating. Try to learn from your mistakes, and improve upon your performance in the next opportunity you receive. I hope to see sequels to this game in the physical copy realm.
