Congratulations! Geologists have discovered an incredibly large oil deposit on your land! In order to reap the rewards, you must get the oil out of the ground. Unfortunately, jealous oil barons hear of your good fortune and set out to spoil your drilling operation by planting land mines and Oozies in your oil fields.
In Oil's Well you maneuver a drill bit through a series of eight mazes, gobbling up Oil Pellets as you go. The drill bit is connected to a pipe, and you must keep the Oozies from touching the pipe and the land mines from touching the drill bit. You can eat special oil nuggets called Petromins to slow down the Oozies. Super-rich oil deposits called Goblets can be eaten for extra points. When you clear a screen of all the Oil Pellets, the construction workers above the field of play finish building the oil refinery, and you move on to the next oil field.
As you move throughout each maze, you can retract the drill bit (all the way back to its starting point) in order to avoid the enemies. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
