  • Excerpt: The DS has plenty of puzzle games but few have the heritage to draw from that Mr. Driller does. This entry doesn’t benefit drastically from the DS’s hardware, but its well-rounded range of modes gives it a far wider appeal than previous versions. The basic premise remains simple – drill downward through a wall of coloured blocks to reach the goal without running out of air. If four or more blocks of the same colour connect, they’ll disappear.

  • Excerpt: The gameplay of Mr. Driller: Drill Spirits is the same as its predecessors. You control a lovable drilling character and must drill through colorful blocks to get to the depth required in that level. The deeper you go, the less oxygen is available, so oxygen tanks are available to refresh your meter. In addition, you can't simply drill straight down as certain blocks take two drills to get through and will deplete your oxygen if you do.

Mr. Driller: Drill Spirits

Portable Review

  • Excerpt: There's not much to say about Mr. Driller's story. Basically, you dig. Just as your ancestors before you did, you dig. What is the purpose of said digging? There really isn't one. You just do. With that said, let's get to what really draws me to the game - the inability to put it down. To be blunt, I love this game. It's not pretty or a great technological achievement. It doesn't boast great artificial intelligence or even a need for it.

Streghe Stagione II (seconda parte )

  • Conclusion: Siamo arrivati con questa recensione alla fine degli episodi della seconda stagione, che continuano ad avere contenuti stimolanti, piacevoli, nel tempo perderanno questo fascino, restando ugualmente una serie di culto, per cui i veri appassionati la seguiranno all’infinito almeno fino all’ottava serie in programmazione in America da Settembre, una stagione che sembra ridare vigore agli episodi arricchendo il cast di nuove giovani interpreti.
  • Pros: Continuano a entusiasmare con le loro avventure;, Il mondo della magia affascina sempre;, Ce la fanno sempre a vincere sul male;
  • Cons: Un peccato che le formule magiche non funzionino davvero;, Troppo belle e vincenti da far invidia;

Mr. Driller - Drill Spirits

25 August 2005
  • Conclusion: F�r Zwischendurch ist ein Spielchen Mr. Driller immer recht angenehm, auch f�r Solospieler. Im Multiplayer macht ein solches Geschicklichkeitsspiel nat�rlich um L�ngen mehr Spa�. Die Touchscreensteuerung in den Levels ist ein wenig unn�tig und die Musik ist nicht sonderlich berauschend, aber durch die vielen unterschiedlichen Charaktere und Level kann man sich einige Zeit mit dem Titel besch�ftigen.
  • Pros: Viele Charaktere, Bonuslevel, Niedliche Grafik
  • Cons: Touchscreen-Steuerung, Fade Musik

  • Conclusion: Ben je op zoek naar een leuk puzzelspel voor je gloednieuwe Nintendo Dual Screen? Dan is Mr. Driller: Drill Spirits een uitstekende kandidaat. Het spel is simpel, heeft een hoge verslavingsfactor en een even hoge replaywaarde. En als je denkt dat je alles hebt gezien, dan kun je nog altijd een vriend uitdagen in de multiplayer modus, waar je slechts één spelcassette voor nodig hebt.
  • Pros: Verslavend, Kleurrijk
  • Cons: DS mogelijkheden zijn amper gebruikt
