Mr. Driller X, known in Japan as Mr. Driller Extreme (ミスタードリラーエックストリーム Misutā Dorirā Ekkusutorīmu ), is a 2003 platforming game developed by Drillimation Studios and published by Namco. The game was released on home computers and consoles in June of 2003.
The game was built using the same engine as Pac-Man World 2, but with additional features added.
- "Team Ankoku is on the loose again!"
- - Official attention grabber
It's been a good six years since you defeated Dr. Manhole, and Princess Konata was held captive by the evil group you've dealt with. Think again. Team Ankoku's admins have captured Princess Konata inside a floppy disk and it's time for you to take back the damsel-in-distress but this time in an alternate universe. A cast of new enemies and mechanics will introduce you into a whole new world to explore. But forge on, if Lord Soujirou asked you to save his princess, venture at your own risk!
- Over eight worlds and more than 30 levels to explore.
- All of Susumu's moves from Drill Spirits are back but with new powers and twists.
- New Driller Engine technology will take your machine to the next level.
Mr. Driller X puts players in control of Susumu Hori who must rescue Konata Izumi from Fred Fuchs through a series of platforming, jumping, and solving statue puzzles. Combining gameplay elements from Super Mario Sunshine and Pac-Man World 2, Susumu can pull off some special moves upon pressing certain button combinations - such as being able to jump farther and higher as well as attacking enemies in unique ways.
Mr. Driller X is divided into twelve worlds with four levels each and visual novel-style cutscenes between levels.
World 1: Valley LaneEdit
The first world, set in a grassy plain, introduces the game's main mechanics and enemies. The main gimmick of the first world is to evade pits like in previous installments and the world boss is Susumu Hakai, the evil version of Susumu Hori.
