Mr. Driller (Game Boy Color)
Mr. Driller was originally intended to be released as a Dig Dug sequel (under the working title Dig Dug III), but was later turned into an original property. One CHR bank in the ROM has unused title screen graphics under yet another name - "Dig Attack". It is written in Dig Dug's title screen font, meaning this was likely left over from when it was still a Dig Dug game.
