Summary: This is one of the first games I bought for the DS. I traded the US version for the Japanese, which has more features and extra levels that really extend the replay value. It is still the game I play the most often, by far. Simple, addictive gameplay, very easy to pick up and play any time. And enough unlockable levels, characters, and game modes to keep you interested, along with always trying to get a new high score.
Summary: I had the American version of this game, and absolutely loved it, but traded it in for the Japanese version because of the things they cut out of the U.S. release. Which include (but are not limited to): One of the four play modes, one playable character, two levels in the normal mode (the fun ones with random powerup items), some menu animation, a few background music songs, basically all the little things that gave the game more variety.
Summary: I just got my copy this morning and after playing it - on the train into work, during my breaks in work, on the bus home and for a few more hours at home - I've devolped what I like to call Driller Thumb! ( A cramp from rapid button bashing craziness!!! ) and if I hadn't then I'd be playing this deep into the night, this is highly addictive and great fun be sure and pick one up!!!
Summary: Mr. Driller DS is a very good game. I bought the japanese version, but once you have gone thrue the menues a coupple of times there is no problems what so ever findin what you need. It should be said thoug that the difficulty curve is rather steep. Personaly I have only finished the first couple of levels. Except from this game I also have Wario DS and Mario DS, but Mr Driller is the game that gets the most time in my DS.
Summary: Extremely addictive and the Japanese import version is the only version that has the Dristone mode. The Dristone mode brings a more strategic stance to gameplay, giving yet another take on the Mr. Driller formula. One card multi-player is also included in the Japanese version where as the US version requires all involved to own a copy of the game. Menu navigation is fairly easy too, so if you want these extras, importing this title is a must.
Summary: Has an extra gameplay mode not found in the North American version, as well as multiplayer using only one card. If you're thinking about getting Mr. Driller for the DS, this version is worth the extra money.
