The graphics are minimal, and the constant beeping is annoying as hell. The control is good however, and Warplock does provides a decent challenge. Unlike most games, you only have one life. You score one point per each hit, and it's actually tough to score above 25. For some reason, shooting one invader in a group automatically kills the rest. It's a weak effort, but Warplock manages to be fun in spite of itself.
You'll probably want to play Warplock long enough to turn the score back to zero, but once you do this a couple of times, you'll most likely move on to another game in your collection. I know I did.

Das Spielprinzip ist dabei ziemlich simpel: Man steuert seinen Raumgleiter über den Bildschirm und muss den Raumpiraten ausweichen und sie mit einem Schuss zerstört. Braucht man etwas länger diese zu zerstören holen sie ihre Kumpanen und fliegen in einem Dreierpack über den Bildschirm. Sie fliegen dabei kein Muster sondern prallen einfach nur vom Bildschirmrand ab und bewegen sich über den Bildschirm. Hat man ein paar davon abgeschossen, schießen diese zurück, aber ansonsten gibt es nicht sehr viele Neuerungen im Spielsystem.

And with Warp Lock, Data Age’s run (at least alphabetically) comes to an end. Although they had some good games (Encounter at L-5, Journey Escape, the Secret Agent prototype) and one great one (Frankenstein’s Monster), their small catalog is marred by some of the most infamously bad games ever made for the system, including Bugs, Airlock and Sssnake. Warp Lock joins that ill-fated category.
