    Awesome game!! Fun and enjoyable gameplay. I recommend that everyone who owns a DS should play this game.

    Lock's Quest was such an enjoyable game for me that I'm thinking of replaying it. In short this game's story is about a young boy named Lock. Lock is the main character of the story and is who the ...

    <br /> A tower defense game except in the palm of your hands

    Rated on March 24, 2010 by WinWalter

    The Nintendo DS has had a lot of success with unique games. One type of game that hasn't really found a home, is a tower defense game. Lock's Quest tries to fill the void and does a very accepta...

    A very fun game, a game especially for those that love real-time strategy

    Rated on September 13, 2008 by soccerboy8

    I only got the game a few days ago, and I love it. This game is a real time strategy, something that the ds needed, and it's a success. Sure you don't have armies of archers and swordsmen, in face you...

    JUST SIMPLY GREAT!!!

    Rated on September 14, 2008 by aniljoy

    A Really Clever Take on the Tower Defense Style

    Rated on September 14, 2008 by GeekyDad

    I'm going to keep this relatively short, since I've already discussed the game elsewhere. But it's a game that certainly deserves attention, and I hope fans of this type of gameplay give it a look-see...

    Tower Defense has transported to a different universe and as a result is now it's own game.

    Rated on September 22, 2008 by fast1marine

    Overview Lock's Quest is only the second game from new developer 5th Cell, the innovative Drawn to Life being their first title. This game has the essence of both a real time strategy and a turn b...

    An inventive blend of RTS and castle defense is marred with a sloppy, unresponsive control scheme.

    Rated on October 10, 2008 by Gamakarmica

    Lock's Quest seems like a perfect fit for the DS. Take a lite-RTS style game where you control one character. However, this character can not only fight enemies on screen with a simple tap. He can...

    Boldly crushes the idea that an RTS cannot be done on the DS.

    Rated on January 09, 2009 by WAIW

    The making of an RTS on DS has been done many times before; it just has not been done very well, with the possible exception of Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. Lock's Quest is here to set things ri...
