|\\\> A NEW SUB-GENRE IS BORN! DRILL-EM-UP! ONLY ONE IN THE APPSTORE RIGHT NOW!
|\\\\\\>"While I can't say The Drill Plus is a can't-put-it-down must, it is engaging and I admire both the self-deprecation of the design and its ease of use. Accelerometer games sometimes outsmart themselves by getting too technical with the controls. The Drill Plus doesn't." - KOTAKU

This is a total unoriginal parody of the anime Tengen Toppa Guren Lagaan, in which the main character pilots a robot that uses a drill to destroy his enemies. Later in the series the main character meets a girl very similar to the one the main character of this app meets. Also, the main character of TTGL has a friend very close to him who always wears sunglasses and looks very very similar to the main character of The Drill. In the last fight of the final movie of TTGL, the main character, Simon, obtains great power, becoming a being of blue energy and finishing off the antagonist with a super powered move that he has done throughout the entire show called Giga Drill Break. Another thing that was ripped off from the anime was that the main character (Simon) usually before defeating an enemy would shout "My drill is the drill that pierces the heavens!" This was stolen by the creator of this game and changed to "Time to pierce the universe", the catchphrase of the main character of this app. There are other similarities and things that have been hailed as "original" by app websites that were stolen directly from the anime, and I advise people to watch at least some of it before purchasing this. This is in no way the creators original ideas.
