Homebrew developer wally just created a port of Namco-original Mr. Driller and released it for the community to enjoy. Around a year ago, coder AntiroC came up with a similar release, known as Ms. Driller for PSP, over at QJ Forums.
Some of you might not be aware of this but the video game Mr. Driller was originally planned to become the third title in the Dig Dug series. Namco ultimately decided against it and packaged the game as a different game all together. A part of the reason for this move is because according to developers back then, around 1999, chain construction with hexagonal blocks is a little too complicated.
Anyway, wally said that this is actually the first version of the homebrew so don't be surprise if you'll encounter some bugs. One known issue is pressing the "UP" button will pause the game. Well, if that's about it, it's not too bad for a first release, eh? The objective of this hoembrew is pretty much the same as the original game - get to 1000 meters with limited air and falling blocks.
Furthermore, wally added that in the next release, he is planning to incorporate certain features like techno music. In the mean while, just get a dose of good ol' Mr. Driller fun with this version. The controls and other details are in the accompanying Readme file.
