Mr Driller coming to XBLA this week

Yours for 800 Microsoft Points.

Classic Namco Bandai series Mr Driller is coming to Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday.

Mr Driller Online will feature single player modes including Standard Driller and Quest Driller. Up to four players can compete online - either in a split-screen Solo Battle, where the highest score wins, or as pairs trying to beat the game in Tag Battle.

For those who aren't familiar, Mr Driller casts you as a tiny man in a big pink space hat who wields a powerful drill. Your task is to destroy blocks without being crushed by others falling on you, and to make sure you don't run out of air along the way.

The most recent Mr Driller game, which appeared on DS, was thoroughly enjoyable. Let's hope the addition of online multiplayer makes the new one even more fun.

Mr Driller Online will be available from 9am on Wednesday April 2nd, priced at 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60).
