A new puzzle game for iOS and Android went live today called Captain Oil, which features a fictional superhero (Captain Oil) with a spaceship that shoots special balls to save trapped “Oileys” in different worlds. Interestingly enough, the game was inspired by oil pollution being a problem in the world, which makes the game’s release during Earth Week quite appropriate.
“The idea of the game came to us when we thought that oil was the main problem in the world today,” said Lebnan Nader, CEO of Game Cooks, the game’s developer. “We worked on the Oil digging puzzle initially for the game, then soon enough we shifted our development and ideas to something more fun, forgetting the world problems we wanted to highlight and focusing only on fun”. The game is a 2D Puzzle type, full of feel-good music, physics, and challenges.
Captain Oil (the hero) travels different fictional worlds and challenges many factors to save his beloved Oileys (Mini cute one-eyed creatures) that are trapped in different mazes in the level. The game now contains 90 levels in three different worlds, with different difficulties and challenges.
But our hero’s ride isn’t easy, many factors will challenge him from fulfilling his tasks, such as wind fans, lasers, spikey blocks, bombs, but he can use other stuff for help such as wormholes, multi-balls and jumpers.
The game is fully integrated with Game Center, offering 90 challenging puzzles to crack and 20 achievements to finish.
