Featuring the same addictive single player drilling action from the classic arcade game, Mr. DRILLER Online now includes online play. Drill down through the colored blocks to meet your goal, but make sure you have enough air. All the drilling action you remember from the original arcade game is faithfully recreated in the Xbox LIVE version, with colorful graphics and challenging gameplay. Play the single-player Standard Driller or Quest Driller modes and keep up your air supply. Online modes: Take the game online with the split-screen Solo Battle, or try out the team-based Tag Battle. Simple controls and deep gameplay make for an addictive gaming experience, suitable for players of all ages and skill levels. [Microsoft] Collapse

  1. Cheerful, perfectly pitched and instantly addictive, Mr Driller is the sort of thing that makes you want to grab those tiresome moaners and say "Look! This is casual gaming! It's what games are all about! And it's brilliant!"
  2. Sugary, sweet and addictive puzzle fun. [May 2008, p.93]
  3. Let's hope Namco has a patch in the pipeline. [June 2008, p.124]
  4. Unfortunately, Mr. Driller Online is plagued by a meager selection of gameplay modes and bug-ridden online play that keep it from being worth the $10 price tag.
  5. Even with the Quest Mode’s extra goals, the game felt too simple for its own good. Extra value should’ve come from the online modes, but horrific lag rendered them unplayable, and there’s no offline multiplayer.
  6. Take the thing online (that is the name of the game after all...) and the results are truly beyond atrocious. [Issue#33, p.116]
  7. A great game, but one which doesn't even come close to doing what it says on the tin. [July 2008, p.95]
