Pop the Lock

Pop the Lock

Pop the Lock is a game that, when you look at its name and its avatar, you pretty much know what it is all about. Quite honestly, when we found this free Android app we thought it would be another puzzle game but it wasn’t…

The main goal here is to unlock the padlock that you see and see how far you can go among the levels that you will get to experience. Pop the Lock is a simple game – at just 16 MB in size it does not require a whole lot of time to download and install and it even lacks a tutorial that shows you how to play the game. This is, however, its greatest weakness – you start the game not knowing what to do and you will fail the first few times… and many times later. The idea behind each level is to tap on the display in the right sequence in order to crack the code and pop the lock but clearly every time things will be different. It turns out that you have to “collect” the yellow dots that you see so Pop the Lock happens to be a game of timing. There’s a small red “bar” that goes around the padlock and you have to tap the display at the exact moment when the red bar is over the yellow dot. This unlocks the padlock and you can proceed to the next level. When you do, you will have to “collect” more dots in order to win so after a few levels things will get tough.

There’s no need to say that Pop the Lock does not offer tons of visual and sound features but the game is small-sized, simple and free so you shouldn’t be that surprised. Nevertheless the game brings fun and is especially suitable for people who want to kill some time. You should have strong nerves at that too since you will fail often but the good news is that when you fail you repeat just the level you have reached without starting from level one. All in all Pop the Lock is a decent game – just don’t expect too much out of it, so this game is definitely not suitable for serious Android gamers.

Pop the Lock is here on Google Play.
