Mr. Driller (ミスタードリラー) is an arcade game developed by Namco which was ported to the Sega Dreamcast in 2000. It stars Mr. Driller, the son of the hero from Namco's earlier arcade game, Dig Dug.

The aim of the game is to drill as far down as possible, by destroying coloured blocks. If Mr. Driller runs out of air, a life will be lost.

Versions

The Dreamcast version of this game reacts to the Dreamcast Microphone. Speaking/blowing into the microphone while playing the game lets Mr. Driller drill blocks.
