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.

A very deep RPG and Tower Defense experience; Lock's Quest is a great "survivor" of the DS ages. Good game, great length and a very old style-pixel style.

Overall, this remaster is a decent title, though unfortunately is not a remaster that was wanted or memorable

Lock's Quest can be a battle against itself, just as much against the enemy, but when things are clicking (which is most of the time), there's an enjoyable game here despite its frustrations.
