So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Drill Dozer is a game about a girl and her drilling-machine. One of the GBA's finest platformers.

Unused Rooms

There are two unused rooms left in the game, accessible by using the cheat code 32000015 00XX, where "XX" is the room number.

  • Room 07: Uses an incorrect tileset. There are two enemies at the beginning, then a lot of normal blocks to drill, plus two tunnels with opposite colors which are revealed from the wrong side. At the very end is an invisible wall.
  • Room 0D: In the background is a "1-1" written with non-solid red blocks, plus it has a weird water tile. You have three scripted messages: the second one is blank, and the third triggers a mini-boss. The left side exit is functional, and leads to one of the used rooms.
