5200 HSC Season 14 Round 3 - Oils Well

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the third round of the 14th 5200 HSC season!  Oils Well won a single vote. Play using the default setting. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

There is no HSC record for this game, so someone will be setting one. 

 

The ROM  can be found here:

Make sure you use oil_fixed_3.bin and not the earlier /other attempts!   

 

Okay,  this is the first I ever played Oils Well - it is a version of Anteater right?   18,840.

Yes, it certainly is.  This was much less clear back in the day when Anteater was a fairly obscure arcade game.

18,580.  I've never worked in the extractive industries, but I can't help but feel this is not how they work.

 45,290.    I felt like I knew what I was doing in this one.  There are some no-win situations where the bomb is very close to a creature at the top tunnel.  There's no way to avoid both of them.

96,800.  My daughter was backseat playing hard this morning, yelling at me whenever a creature was about to get the pipe.  Still couldn't clear that 100k.
