Crash! (Dec, 1987)
It’s probably getting a bit boring, all this praise, but here goes: Driller is one of the best Spectrum games ever. The graphics are amazing; for once the claims made by the publisher are surpassed, and Freescape really IS the new dimension! After a couple of hours you don’t notice the jerkiness of the graphics, either. And Incentive’s Major Developments team hasn’t relied on the graphics — Driller is a compulsive game. Once you’ve learned the basic, read the (extensive!) literature, and sorted out the first few drilling rigs, Driller opens up and you really can’t put it down. Just trying to position a rig accurately is a game in itself, and Driller offers so much it’s a must for any Spectrum-owner.
At a time when innovation seems halted, Driller not only makes a welcome change but also an excellent one.
It may only be in mono, but the textures used in the display are still very effective and the screen redraws at a healthy speed making the game that much more playable.
Driller is definitely on of the best arcade adventure games to have hit the streets for ages. There is nothing I can say to downgrade this excellent piece of software even if I tried! Driller brings together all the magical ingredients that make a game stand out amongst the rest, such as astounding visuals, high adventure and compulsive gameplay.
Aber auch als Besitzer eines Spectrum oder Schneiders kann man mit DRILLER absolut zufrieden sein, denn das Game wird - nicht zuletzt durch die guten Grafiken - nie langweilig und bietet neben der Strategie (eine Karte zu zeichnen ist unerläßlich) jede Menge Action, die im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes eine neue Dimension erfährt. Also Leute, ran an den Bohrer!
