Drill for oil like it's 1899!

Turmoil offers players a visually charming, tongue-in-cheek take on the simulation genre inspired by the 19th century oil rush in North America. Get a taste of the rush and rivalry of the time as you earn your way to become a successful oil entrepreneur. As you make money digging up and selling oil, the town will grow along with you.

Lease land at the town auction and search for oil. Build a rig, create an efficient pipe network and bring up the oil to store it in silos. Sell the oil at the best times to maximize profits. Then buy essential upgrades in town to cope with rock, gas and ice. Acquire more town shares than your competitors in a bid to become the new mayor.

-A campaign where you build your rags-to-riches oil baron career and beat your rivals.
-Dozens of upgrades and new tools to improve your oil mining operations.
-Meet the town’s characters in the saloon and make shady business deals.
-Play single game mode to get one of literally millions of procedurally generated levels and earn as much as you can in one year.
-Lease land at the town auction and search for oil using a dowser, mole or scanner.
-Maximize your profits by using natural gas to boost the oil price.
-Outbid your competitors at the stock auction.

Great game! Needs a few things fixed to be perfect.


First, this is a really fun, addictive game. The last update fixed all my crashing issues on an iPad mini. As others have said, it needs a few things changed to make it perfect. Please fix the annoying sound that persists in the background sometimes. Also, please make the text larger, and more visible, like not having white letters over the white clouds. And, most of all, fix the save game system. If the game sits idle and resets, you lose all saved progress. I've lost many great levels that way. It needs to auto save at that point, or provide a manual save option.

Fun but is too much


This game is very fun but $6 is kind of a lot I think that that's way too much for any game on a mobile device and also you have like only 10 mins until the level is over and then it resets you stats then you do it again and it gets kind of boring after the first few times to be honest I think that it would be better if the whole game was one level and there was just a massive land to dig oil out of then it would be worth more than six dollars I would buy it for 7 dollars if it was like that

Fix the sound


I love the game but fix the weird sound issues. The sound of the derrick pumping persists long after I closed out of whatever game I was playing and the timer taking long after the timer has run out is getting annoying. It only happens when I play a single game. It's never happened in campaign mode so it's just a bug. I have to shut the app down completely and restart it so that the sound goes away.
