Drill Dozer (2006)
Developer: Game Freak Inc.
Platform: Game Boy Advance
Purchase Date: 2006

Drilling into enemies is fun but seems a bit too violent if you really think about it.

Drill Dozer is a very good platformer that is unique due to its bold graphical presentation and weird gameplay mechanics. You ride a robot with a big drill in front of it that is used to carve through environments and also your unfortunate enemies. Whenever the drill is utilized, a large drill meter that takes up almost half of the screen shows up and with proper timing, you can shift the drill's power up so that it can do more damage. The game is designed around the drill's abilities and this leads to some truly clever stage layouts as well as some truly remarkable boss battles. A must play, especially for those who adore platform games. This one is among the best in the genre.

LIBRARY STATUS: 5 out of 5
