All in all, Lock 'N' Chase is a respectable maze game. I don't enjoy it as much as Atari's Ms. Pac-Man or Coleco's Mouse Trap, but it's a very solid title which is far superior to the Pac-Man port for the 2600. The game is pretty common, too, so you shouldn't have much trouble finding a copy.
Despite its many shortcomings, Lock 'N' Chase is an addicting game. If you were put off by the Intellivision's bad controls (and many of us were, no doubt), then go with this one. You won't get the great graphics, but the gameplay's all there... and isn't that what matters?
Like Pac-man, Lock 'N’ Chase has one maze that repeats endlessly, and like Pac-man, it also has icons that will appear for you to pick up (from two places) for extra points. One of the icons will make noise to tell you when it is there and one of them will not. The graphics and sound in this game are about on par with Pac-man other than the fact that I like the color scheme of this game better. Overall, if you are a Pac-man fan, you should be able to enjoy this game as well, as the two are alike in many ways.
Lock N Chase is always a challenge, even on the "easy" skill level, and I like how it "pauses" between lives. It may be a little slow and derivative, but give Lock N Chase a chance and it'll give you a run for your money.
Lock ‘N’ Chase is just kind of blah. If you love maze games you’ll probably want to try it. Everyone else should just stick with Ms. Pac-Man, Jr. Pac-Man or even Alien.
