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 towns 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.

The game is a lot of fun. Highly addictive. Congrats to the dev!

I'd like to rotate my ipad 180 degrees but the screen orientation is fixed. Would be great to see that taken care of in an update.

Hi there i'm the artist for Turmoil.
The first game I worked on, so this is very exciting and scary!
Been reading and listening to Touch Arcade for many years now and finally seeing your own creation on here is very special!
Hopefully it finds an audience and you guys like it.

Was a joy to make!

FYI this works on a JB iPhone 6+. Looks like it even fits the screen right out of the wrapper. The writing is a little small but serviceable. A universal text size adjustable setting placed in the settings menu could actually be all it needs. It's so close to being iPhone ready if it's not already. For a 6+ anyway.
