THE BAD: At only 6 areas, it's short; upgrade system isn't all too rewarding during the main mission; catchy music can get repetitive.
Drill Dozer is just what the 2D platforming genre needs, something to wake it up. Not only are you platforming through puzzles that'll not only test your quick fingers but fast eye, but the new drill mechanic and breakable solids add a tremendous amount of variety and downright FUN that anyone just looking for a game that'll keep them enthralled for a little while will get exactly what they're looking for.
The story is simple, you control a girl who's part of a trio of theives. You stole a valuable red diamond but it was stolen by another gang of theives, therefore throughout the game you need to explore areas, destroy their bosses, and test your gaming skills to get to the end and get all you diamonds back.
The drill feature is one where the left shoulder button rotates your drill left, and right to the right. You start off in one gear but are able to find 2 more that can intensify your drilling and make it last longer. All gears are placed very properly throughout levels so it never makes the game TOO hard, but the gradual challenge in figuring out how to use your moves like dashing, drilling, or jumping off a drill, etc will definitely give your brain that excersize it needs. Sometimes the levels will split into 2 paths, but it's always good to explore all because chances are there's goodies on the other side.Read more ›
The Skuller gang stole the Red Diamond from the real gang of thieves, the Red Dozers. Jill and her Red Dozer comrades have to find a way to steal back the Red Diamond, but they discover there are more diamonds to be found. So what is a gang of thieves to do? Steal more diamonds! Using the Red Dozers' trusty Drill Dozer, you'll spin Jill through twelve stages on a fun adventure to track down five different diamonds.
If it wasn't already obvious, the Drill Dozer is really the star of the show and the focal point of the gameplay. As a side-scrolling action-platform game, Drill Dozer has simple hop-and-bop gameplay without the drilling factor-but using the L and R buttons on the GBA allows you to spin the Drill Dozer's drill to the left or right. You can bore the drill into all sorts of things, like walls, crates, environmental objects and set pieces, and even enemies-needless to say, you'll be holding down L or R a lot in this adventure. The gameplay is made deeper by multiple "gears" that can be found in each level. When you find your second gear (the first is always installed into the Drill Dozer), you can shift up and increase the speed and power of the drill, though the drill still needs to recover after a few moments of spinning. The third gear is the strongest gear and keeps your drill spinning quickly indefinitely. Unfortunately, at the end of each level, the Drill Dozer's gears have to be removed, so each new level you'll start with that simple first gear.Read more ›
The basic hook of the game is its heavy use of the L & R buttons. R turns your drill on, and L turns the drill on backwards. The kicker though, is they use the drill for EVERYTHING. Fly through threaded tunnels, kick backwards out of blocks, hang from platforms, open doors, fight bad guys, fly and swim with a propeller attachment, and smash through walls, desks, chairs, lamps, blocks, crates, ceilings, floors, cars...
Every couple levels they throw something brand new at you, and there is decent replay value in upgrading your drill bit to access secret areas, as well as collecting chips to spend in the store.
Next to Ouendan/Elite Beat Agents this is the must play GBA game of 2006 no matter what age you are!
