Journey to the center of the earth with Mr. Driller and his friends. Take part in three different game modes as you and your trusty drill bore through strange blocks that are appearing all over the world. Players aim the drill with the Control Pad, and drill by pressing the A Button. They'll have to keep an eye on their air as well, and collect air capsules to make sure Mr. Driller doesn't suffocate while drilling. There are also tough "X" blocks - if you try to drill these, you'll lose more air than normal.

Mr. Driller: Drill Till You Drop is a cut-down port of the Nintendo DS launch title Mr. Driller: Drill Spirits. It removes all multiplayer aspects of the game, and instead focuses on three different single player modes that were included in the original release:
  • Mission mode - This mode features twenty different levels based around the world, each with increasing levels of difficulty.

  • Dristone mode - In this mode (removed from the original US release of the DS version), there are no air capsules available. Instead, you can find special gems called 'Dristones'. These provide powerups ranging from destroying all blocks of a specific color to refilling your air and more.

  • Time Attack mode - In Time Attack mode, you race against the clock to complete levels.
