Summary: Addiction. That's what makes puzzle games good and all. And Mr. Driller drills the addiction up finely. Because it's in the arcade, quarters and quarters will be taken up for this game if you're a puzzle nut like me...and believe me, the action will soon get intense. Gameplay: 9/10 Mr. Driller is a puzzle game, but that doesn't mean it has shallow gameplay.

Summary: Mr.Driller is a pain in the [...] to get uesd to, but after about 20 dies you'll get the hang of it. I've inly played this game long enough to unlock one person:Puchi. He's cool. It wasn't that easy tp get him though. The higher meters there are on a level the more faster your air bars runs out, which makes this game really hard. I only really bought it because the game I wanted took to long to get here. I also got it because it's a multiplayer game.
Summary: Driller is a great time waster game. If may seem annoying at first, but it becomes addictive after a few tries at the game. It's a tough game that takes a little to get used to. But once you get the hang of the game, it could have some good replay value. Great if you love puzzle games. For action, look elsewhere.
Summary: I'd never played a Mr. Driller game until now, but I'm glad I picked this one up. It's a fun, cute, and challenging puzzle game which I enjoyed. The voiceovers and between-level cut-scenes were a little too cute and Disney-esque, but good for a brief laugh. Play control was flawless; I died only due to my own lack of foresight as opposed to difficulty controlling the character.
Summary: It seems that this game isn't getting much attention on Nintendo's newest handheld, and that is truly a shame as it is one of the most fun and addicting games to come out in quite some time. The premise of Mr. Driller Drill Spirits is simple. You must dig down through layers of colored blocks, similar in style to the classic Namco game Dig Dug. However, when you drill through blocks, the blocks on top can fall downward.
Summary: Drill Spirits is a tough game to master in single player mode, though it does offer several different types of gameplay so there is a chance you might find one which suits you. For myself I have not got beyond 800 metres in the main game. and am still far from mastering Pressure Driller. We have found that buying a couple of copies of the game - it is cheap enough to do so - and going head to head is where Driller really comes into its own.
Excerpt: "I bought this game from a shop for just £1 in the bargain bucket and thought that for one pound I might as well get it. This game is simple and easy to start playing the game is basicaly you drilling using the touch screen or arrow buttons to drill to the bottom to reach the next level. It might sound easy but it isnt some levels can be done quickly but some levels like tokyo have you digging 25,000 feet to get to the bottom. The game has lots ...
Excerpt: "Just like zoo keeping and tile flipping it seems drilling is one of those things that people have just been dying to do in their puzzle games. Mr Driller has been around since 2000 where Susumu pretty much blitzed all the consoles out there with his cute little game. While there have been various incarnations of the game they haven't really been let outside of Japan where his popularity is, predictably, strongest. Times are changing though and now ...
Pros: Very addictive | Good game modes | Challenging
Summary: Many puzzle games have tried to reproduce the frantic fun of Tetris but let's be honest, most fall short of the mark. The Mr. Driller range of games, to my mind, are the closest contenders out there for the title (on *any* platform) and the new Drill Spirits is the best version of Mr. Driller that I've ever played. The game itself is different enough from Tetris (or any Tetris clone) to be able to call itself unique, it's not a poor man's copy of something else.
