Critic Reviews for Lock's Quest Remastered
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.
Lock's Quest is a charming tower defense game with a strategic combat system. It features gorgeously animated 16-bit art style and offers plenty of challenge for those who love a good tower defense games. However despite being a remaster, it is not free from its issues.
The game is inoffensive enough and certainly a value proposition to those nostalgic for a Lock's Quest remaster. Frustratingly, a commitment to PC centric controls could have given a far more pleasant play experience. However, there lies more insidious issues beneath the varnish of this remaster.
