Excelente juego :v

Awesome game!

not bad for a second try 🤔

I was right next to the air pocket, too! 😭

I'll end with this 😒


Very fun!

How can I play this on my Miyoo Mini Plus (Linux based)?

Cool game!

Love this game. Will there be a download for this game in the future?


SNES game, fun, silly, little man makes me smile. silly game, silly tunes.

very cool game

Very cute and fun to play. The colour-matching mechanic led to a surprising amount of difficulty. I like it.

Addicting!!! ♥


I introduced the game.

Any chance of a Windows Binary? I donated $2.50.


Extremely fun experience, love the art

Thanks to your game project I finally played official Mr Driller games!

(My favorites are Mr.Driller G, Mr.Driller DrillLand, Mr.Driller on GBA and Mr. Driller Drill Spirits)

420 ft first try

My all time favorite game of the PICO 8. 

this is amazing!
best score:

Very solid game. Great background music, solid art style and amazing controls!

Thank you very much! Glad you like it!


Found out about this game on the lexaloffle website as one fo the front page games. I LOVE This Game!


Your Welcome!

Susumu is red and green rather than pink and blue for some reason.

It's pretty hard to avoid falling pieces when they come from off-screen.

I wish I had a android ver of this game. . .


awesome really fun to play

This is a very cool concept and greatly executed! The little percentage bar thingy is a nice way to stop people from just drilling straight down and adding to the experience at the same time. Great game!


As a driller fan, this is great, very good job!

Simple is not always bad! Really nice and addicting gameplay


I was a bit iffy at first, but it's oddly addicting. I also love the art style and the colors - very bright and very vibrant 

Johan, i really like all your games, i am learning basics as a beginner on pico 8 and i appreciate the love you injected into them all. thanks :-)


Love the feel of this game! really takes me back in time to my old nintendo 8bit that i loved so much as a kid! so very well done on the nostalgia part! its a fun time killing game for sure! very well made guys! But the menu, what is up with the menu! i had no idea where to go or what to do it was very confusing :P i was reseting the card over and over again but i had to press x/z to enter the menu. just saw the comment “X/Z to drill in current direction” on the page otherwise i would have never know! But other than that love it :D if you have time i woud love to hear what you think about the game i’m working on, i’m dying to get a ton of feedback to improve myself and would love to hear what you think!

Game is buggy. Sometimes I can get inside a block (my character is on a block). If I press joystick one way and press button I can smash the block, however if I do joystick in another direction with button my character disappears.. turns out he was off screen to the right! I could see him just a little bit, but there's no way to get back on the screen. Just have to wait until air disappears or reset.

Other than that it's good and runs just fine. No lag issues on my home computer, or my S20 Ultra phone.


Another bug.. if you get multiple air capsules too quickly it only counts one of them.

Another bug.. I only got this once. The game would not let me climb up for that whole game.

This is an amazing game! The only problem, and this may also have something to do with my internet but it only happens on this game so I think it's at least multifactorial, is that sometimes after I've been playing for a while the game will get so slow it doesn't really function. The bar for air and the one displaying your score both disappear, and the lag is so intense I can't tell what I'm doing. It seems the only way to fix this is to either reload the whole page or pause and "reset cart," neither of which I like to do because they take away my high score. This last time, I was already past my high score at 2000 something feet (but I have no idea where besides that it was between 2000 and 2500, because the meter was gone), and I tried to wait for it to work but I eventually had to end the game with 2 lives left. It was really disappointing because I think I was gonna go really far that time.


The reason for that was found and noted on the BBS thread!

ah okay... there was also a possible fix given though...

Very well done!!



Ah, Mr. Driller.  I couldn't count the hours I spent in my youth playing the PS1 and DS versions.

This port is a faithful adaptation of the arcade-style gameplay, and looks charming to boot.  The pixel animations are fluid and familiar-- Susumu's hair flys upwards as he falls!

I'd happily play this again.

My critique/suggestions for the game are as follows:

- Completely drilling an X block does not notify you of a 20% air loss.  This is noted in the how to play section, but most versions of the game display an indicator.

- When Susumu dies, any surrounding air capsules are destroyed!  Typically air capsules remain, allowing you to drill around them and carry them below (for when you need them).

- If you intend to expand on the game, look into some of the different block patterns/behaviors and songs (if this is in the game and I did not get far enough down, disregard).  One of my favorite parts of playing the PS1 Mr. Driller is digging far enough to get to the two-colored section and going into free fall.

Thanks for the Pico 8 port!  It shows a lot of love and care.

I went back and it does look like the patterns change, so ignore my third comment!

Mr driller 👍🏻
