OIL is a game about digging for oil in early 1900s America. It’s a two player game that you play against a computer player or with your friend on the same device. OIL is a tense digital board game that plays a lot like battleships with a major oil mining twist! Unlike battleships, in OIL you and your opponent share the same play-space and compete for the same oil. Use your strategic mastery to beat your opponent and show who is the best oil miner! Influenced by the film ‘There Will Be Blood’, OIL focuses on the competition of oil mining in the iconic setting of the American oil boom of the early 1900s.

18 levels for you to unlock on the path to oil mining greatness.
3 tiers of ai difficulty to test your skills against.
Beautiful chilled out soundtrack to immerse you in the world of OIL.
Play against you friend using pass and play to see who’s best.
Portrait or landscape for on-the-go mining.
Simple tap and swipe controls with an intuitive minimalist interface.
Levels which reference scenes from ‘There Will Be Blood’.
No internet connection required to play.

Smart, yet confusing

Mattee Ice

Gameplay is easy and there is strategy involved. What a great movie as inspiration for the game, btw. The soundtrack is fitting and blends in without distraction.

However, the tutorial needs work. There is no reference to the purpose of the boxes in the upper right corner. “Adjacent” tiles needs definition. When starting the first level after the tutorial, there are black boxes to be placed on tiles before the round starts. There is no explanation why they need to be placed or what they do.

Please add detail to the tutorial. I look forward to learning more about how the game works. This app has a lot of potential!



It can be fun for a little while, but quickly gets tiring. Tutorial is not very helpful and I was still left confused. Boring, repetitive gameplay that is saved with beautiful and aesthetic graphics. With more updates that help make rounds more engaging and fun, it can be a decent-fun game. 6.5/10
(More updates would include different game modes, an online mode, and such)

Fun little game


I love apps that allow pass and play!

This is a fun little game. Personally, it’s more fun to pass and play this one, but it’s a good way to pass the time, regardless. :)

Single player mode could use some extra features.
- Winning rounds could earn you coins to spend on in-game rewards such as boosts, different color themes, new music tracks to listen to while playing...? Gaming is most fun when there are goals and quests. ☺️
