Summary: I first played Mr. Driller in the arcade. It's a fun puzzle game where you dig through colored blocks as you try to go further and further down. As you dig, the blocks above you become unstable, and can fall and crush you. You also need to periodically pick up air capsules so you don't suffocate. It was a great game, and my friends and I would take turns playing. The Nintendo DS version is the same basic game.

Summary: Some games are complex - and some are just fun! Drill Spirits is great puzzle fun in the Tetris theme - but with more of a dig dug sort of problem. In essence you start at the top of a pile of bricks. You drill your way down them, looking for air, watching the blocks explode if they match up with similar colored blocks. Some levels are easy, with lots of similar blocks to vanish for you. Other levels are far more complicated, with more colors to manage.
Summary: Maybe I am just not up on my button mashing, but I am having a heck of a time playing this game! No, I am not letting that detract from my review - it just means I have some more playin' to do. It is tough game play, though I am sure most kids are not going to have any issues with it. It is a simple "pick it up and play" game - not a lot of reading of the instruction manual is needed. It is one of those simple games that can drive ya crazy. Very addicting.
Summary: So do you enjoy puzzle games? Tetris was amazing but now, games are overshadowed by bigger things like Mario or Zelda games. But this shouldn't. The simplicity of just eliminating block after block with person whilst trying to gain air is what makes this game what it is. It's another addictive game with that "Oh i'll try just 1 more time" factor. We all love those.
Summary: When ordering games for my DS I decided that I'd get one single player game to entertain me for a long period of time(Super Mario64 DS), and one puzzle game to play briefly with friends when they bring their DS's. But when "practicing" I became utterly hooked with the game. It's like a fusion of tetris, dig dug and some other insane puzzle game.
Summary: Mr Driller is a loose update to the 80's classic Dig Dug and invloves digging deep into the ground to a target goal. As you drill away you remove coloured blocks, drilling 4 or more instigates a chain reaction clearing multiple blocks of the same colour. Your snaking path to the depths of the Earth becomes ever more perilous as undrilled blocks from above get dislodged and tumble down on you, the result of sloppy quick drilling.
Summary: Das erste mal habe ich "Mr. Driller" auf der Dreamcast gespielt und gleich in mein Herz geschlossen. So war es auch überhaupt keine Frage, das ich mir dieses kleine Suchtspiel auch für den Nintendo DS hole. Spielprinzip: Das Spielprinzip ist Simpel wie süchtig machend: In einem nach unten gehenden Kanal mit verschieden farbigen Blöcken muß man sich durch wegbohren der Blöck nach unten graben. Doch vorsicht: Löst man einen Block fallen die darüber liegenden auch hinab.
Pros: Neue Modi, Unterschiedliche Charaktere, Eingängiges Spielprinzip
Cons: Musik nicht besonders, Stylus Steuerung schlecht (aber auch nicht nötig ! ! )
