I love that Grilla Drilla
runs very much like a gorilla would. Heís a neat character to play. He is a melee character but you can buy upgrades that will hit enemies at a distance. Heís still never a ranged character, but his abilities do have a bit of range to them. The only flaw I have found with Grilla Drilla
is that I find it hard to break close up pots and other objects. Itís as if he misses objects that are too close to him. Itís not a serious problem, but it is a bit frustrating sometimes. As far as I have seen so far though, it is only a problem on smaller pots and objects, not enemies, so it wonít kill you.
Grilla Drilla is one of the Swap Force Skylanders with the Dig ability, so he can complete the Dig Zone Challenges. These are probably my least favorite of the challenges, but you will benefit the most on them from having a second player to help you. The second player can freeze the time every so often, which is a huge help!
Grilla Drilla is a character that I like to take apart. Iím not a big fan of the bottom half abilities, but I really love the strength of the top halfís punches, so I find that I like to make Grilla Kraken or Grilla Ranger for a much more robust character. Granted, he looks a bit funny with some of the different combinations as the drill base really suits his appearance, but thatís all part of the fun! I recommend seeing what different combinations you can make with Grilla Drilla and enjoy the monkeys!
