I usually don't make threads (not sure if I ever have before - maybe once), but I thought I'd go ahead and make this one.
I haven't been following gaming news lately, but today I checked out some gaming magazines. I saw some screenshots for this GBA game by Nintendo/Game Freak called "Drill Dozer" and it looked appealing to me. I read about it, and it has been getting pretty good reviews (one review even compared it to the early work of Treasure).
So, I decided to buy it. And, although I've only finished a few stages, I have to say that it's pretty good.
When I first saw it, I thought it would be similar to Mr. Driller or Dig-Dug. However, it's actually an action/adventure platformer. It's my favorite new action game since Treasure's Astro Boy for GBA (Gunstar Super Heroes was good, but I still prefer the original Gunstar Heroes for Genesis).
Anyway, you control a drill robot, so there's plenty of drilling involved. It took awhile to get the hang of the gameplay, but it's really neat. You can even use your drill to bounce off these spring-blocks and stuff. There's more to it, but I don't really know how to explain it all. The graphics are also pretty cool in my opinion (of course, I like old sprite style graphics the best, so maybe it's just me).
If you are a fan of 2D platformers then I recommend this game. It's probably because I haven't been following gaming news lately, but I didn't even know this game existed until today.
Has anyone else played it yet?
