From the developers of the pretty average Drawn To Life and the excellent mobile game Siege, comes what is described as "Warcraft meets Rampart" which to me spells fun. From IGN: "In Construction Combat: Lock's Quest, players create a virtual world block-by-block to defend their homeland against invading enemies. With the innovative use of the Nintendo DS stylus, players will be able to immerse themselves into the building and creating process. You 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 build new structures around the sacred Source Artifacts with the ultimate goal of protecting them from infiltrators. Players can utilize different materials such as stone, metal, or wood to create and design defence towers in the battle field. There are also quirky weapons such as quicksand traps and glue cannons that the player can use to attack enemies. Construction Combat: Lock's Quest combines the action/adventure and life simulation genres in a fast-paced broadly appealing game consisting of successive waves of building and battling. Elements of strategy and puzzle-solving are also incorporated to reward more sophisticated players. Players will be able to battle with friends through multi-card play or Wi-Fi." Sounds like a fun game and something the DS needs. Its apparently out in the "Fall" or Autumn to you & me.
