Mr. DRILLER returns in Mr. DRILLER DrillLand to invite players to a secret amusement park known as “Drill Land,” located 500 meters underground. Players can explore and conquer the five attractions in Drill Land, each with their own set of unique gameplay rules and final bosses that must be defeated at the end of each attraction.
