Some games are complex - and some are just fun! Drill Spirits is great puzzle fun in the Tetris theme - but with more of a dig dug sort of problem.
In essence you start at the top of a pile of bricks. You drill your way down them, looking for air, watching the blocks explode if they match up with similar colored blocks. Some levels are easy, with lots of similar blocks to vanish for you. Other levels are far more complicated, with more colors to manage.
Levels can replayed many times, learning their layout so that you get through them as quickly as possible. With the dual screen, you can keep track of what block piles are up above you as you drill your way down.
This is a great game for quick playing as you wait in line - you don't have to think a lot about what you are doing, but it is very capitvating. So many studies have shown that keeping your brain exercised helps it stay healthy that I would highly recommend this game for anyone from age 5 to 105. It's easy to understand how to play - but it can be challenging for anybody. There are many levels of difficulty as well as a 'shop' to buy new items.
Highly recommended for any DS owner!
