Tower defense cult classic “Lock’s Quest” coming to mobile

Lock’s and Load

Over a decade ago, a fine real-time strategy game came to Nintendo DS and took the hearts of players and reviewers (as of July 30th, 2019, Lock’s Quest is rated “80” on, based on 32 critics) by storm. Lock, a young, brave hero, is the last line of defence of his village against the hordes of Lord Agony, the Clockwork Army. Lock has just learned the skills of an Archineer, a builder of magical, mechanical devices, and with his wide array of customised towers, traps, walls, weapons, and other defences it’s up to you and Lock to stop the Invasion and rise to become the one true hero to protect the whole kingdom.

Lock’s Quest blends real-time strategy gameplay with RPG elements and the classic tower defense formula and combines them with a fully-fledged storyline. The gameplay is divided into three parts: in the story part, you travel the Kingdom with Lock, talk to NPCs, take quests, get new equipment and experience the story. When enemy forces appear, it’s time to prepare your defensive structures in the build mode: place towers, walls, traps and customise them: add an acid attack to a tower for example, or harden your walls by using stone instead of wood. The third part of gameplay starts when the battle commences: roam the battlefield with Lock, smash enemies, repair towers and walls and use your super attacks wisely. Lock’s Quest will be a premium game, with a price at £6.99 / $7.99 / €7.99. There will be no microtransactions, ads or loot box gambling – just a great game for a fair price.  

iOS users can pre-order the game in the App Store and play as soon as it releases. Android users can now pre-register for Lock’s Quest in the Play Store.

Play as Lock, a boy who stumbles upon an invasion of his village, which triggers a wider war between Kingdom Force and a revived Clockwork Army, led by the nefarious Lord Agony. A gripping story unfolds as you progress through 75 days of warfare, across a dozen unique maps, aided by a collection of turrets, traps and special attacks. Experience the game as it was meant to be, with a high-quality soundtrack, new high-resolution portraits, and revised gameplay with full support for tablets.  

  • Place Kingdom Force units to defend your capitol in a brand new Endless Mode – Antonia Defense!
  • Build up your fortifications each day to defend against a timed Clockwork assault. Use dozens of turrets, traps, and helpers to stop the advance.
  • Fight alongside your defences, using context-sensitive special attacks, and devastating super attacks, which impact a wide range of enemies.
