Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Driller'

Rating:5 User: Alessandro Grussu

If there was a groundbreaking Spectrum game released in 1987, I believe the honor should go to Driller. An original, intriguing and absorbing title, and a technical feat of massive proportions as well. The first Freescape game, where you have to prevent the Mitral moon from exploding by drilling the gas accumulated under its surface in each of the 18 sectors it is divided into, may be a bit slow for the sheer amount of data being processed on the screen, but the atmosphere and the sense of "being there" are strong. If you find the reconnaisance jet you can see it all from a new perspective!
