From the creators of the top—selling Drawn to Life, Lock's Quest utilizes the Nintendo DS stylus to deliver a unique gaming experience that blends action, adventure, strategy and building simulation with a fun and memorable storyline. Lock's Quest is now available for a suggested retail price of $29.99.

Lock's Quest combines the frantic pace of an action/adventure game with the depth and replayability of a strategy title, allowing players to assume the role of young hero Lock as he defends his homeland from the imminent attack of robotic invaders. As an Archineer—part architect, part engineer—Lock uses his skills to construct defenses to protect the energy—providing Source Artifacts from the invading forces.

Offering two fast—paced modes of play, Lock's Quest allows players to build and battle in order to defend their virtual homeland. Players must use different strategies to build structures inside the village and construct necessary defensive items, including walls, weapons and traps to prepare for upcoming invasions. Once the attack begins, players will be able to choose between one—on—one combat or launch special attacks to quickly defeat the invaders. After each successful battle, players will reap the rewards of victory by using salvaged scraps to unlock new weapons and begin rebuilding defenses for the next invasion. Players will have the opportunity to strategize and build while fighting 100 battles across 18 huge, unique environments. Intense versus battles can also be fought via multi—card play.

Lock's Quest was developed by 5TH Cell, the creators of Drawn to Life, one of the top selling original properties developed for Nintendo DS in 2007. For more information on Lock's Quest, and to play an online demo, visit
