Top Critic Average
Picklock with a cheerful start and an interesting concept quickly gets bored and causes only persistent irritation due to the bad controls and too harsh task conditions. Therefore, after half the game, your desire to play disappears and you do not want to steal printers and toilet paper.

In this Picklock review, we'll try to figure out of the game can succeed among the heavy hitters of the stealth genre or if it's better left in the shadows. Deqaf Studios brings us a game of thievery and deceit where money is the only thing that matters. Commit a series of burglaries as Picklock, a man with a mission, and see how far you can make it on the wrong side of the law.
Picklock has the foundation of a good experience. There are brief moments of actual fun spread throughout, but these are in spite of the game's quirks, not because of it. The awkward controls remove any possible precision, and the sloppy, typo-ridden presentation makes these flaws hard to overlook. With a bit more polish, Picklock could have been a very good stealth title, but as it exists now, players are better off picking a different lock.
Picklock is a creative game that had its potential buried by poorly adjusted controls. Not even the humor, the art style or the soundtrack can avoid the bad impression that the gameplay conveys to the player. Unfortunately, a title that could attract attention within the indie scene will go unnoticed because of completely avoidable game design issues.

Not bad, but Picklock has some issues.
