    It's one of the best games for "on-the-go" on the DS right now. Highly addictive.

    Namco's Mr. Driller series throws back to the developer's golden age of arcade gaming, where Pac-Man, Dig-Dug, and Galaga were born. Perhaps the greatest aspect of these old arcade games was their si...

    Puzzle glory on the DS? Look again.

    Mr Driller is a decent game, but it doesnt make use of the DS's full potential.

    Mr Driller is Pacman undeground. This DS update of Dig Dug is a decent game, but it has only about 3 modes and it takes no authority over gameplay. The reason DS has 2 screens is to make use of better...

    Highly addictive after time, but frustrating at first.

    Mr. Driller looks easy, but is hard enough to offer challenges to most gamers

    Rated on February 16, 2005 by ultrawhiplash

    This was the first Mr. Driller i have played, and it is quite a good game. It is an addictive puzzle game, but it is quite difficult. You must avoid being crushed as you drill down into the blocks, an...
