We're a project team that gathered to make a new type of game for iOS. It has just been released and we'd like to share some info with you guys. Take a look at below teaser video.

* Game name
: OilMan - Seekers of Black Gold

It's free-to-play game and kind of simulation game and farming game combined. It should be worth a try. Hope you like it!

Also on our website, we're doing an event of giving-away original hand-painted portrait of Johnny Dick Rockwell, the main character of OilMan.

I was really enjoying this game. It's a fun little 'builder' type game where you need to build up your oil empire across the world. The IAP seems fairly balanced, the game seems polished and build times are not over the top.

But then it happened!!! The unacheivable missions that means I can't progress them any further and their is no way to skip. One of them involves Facebook - no thanks dev. All my iOS gaming friends have Game Center so why not use that? The other mission is for my collective to be number 1?? How can I influence that in any way? All new players obviously join the collective that has been number 1 since day one (and by the score must be full of the BETA testers).

Devs, if you're reading this, please fix this! Or at least let me skip them as it is ruining an otherwise pretty good game.
