It's time to polish up on the dirty tricks and perfect that evil sneer again for a game that will bring out the nasty streak in everyone. In Oil Imperium you are an oil magnate trying to wipe out your opponents and gain a monopoly on the world's market. To start with you must establish yourself; build an oil field or two, buy a storage tank and you're all set to reek havoc on your rivals.
Once you've got a bit of money you can hire mercenaries to set fire to oil fields, rob a competitor's bank, blackmail rival agents or blow up storage tanks. Of course, your opponents will be trying to do the same to you, but there is a way to stop them. Detectives can be hired and if they uncover any illegal dealing then a court case ensues where some of the offender's oil fields can be confiscated.
The normal day-to-day running of the company is done from the office, but sometimes you may have to pop out to extinguish the odd fire, connect the occasional pipeline or drill for oil. These three events make up the arcade action part of the game.
It's been a long while since I've seen a game that's as well presented as Oil Imperium, every part of the game is very slick and easy to use. The graphics are very impressive in all respects, right throughout the game, and because of the multitude of possibilities they are also extremely varied. There are very few sound effects but the excellent music more than makes up for this.
You can choose to play against the computer, friends or a combination of both, and what's more, there's four variations of the game to test the budding tycoon to the full. Each time you play is slightly different because of the random distribution of oil.
Oil Imperium mixes strategy with arcade action and the result is a real winner that will have you hooked for weeks. If you want something to get your teeth into then this is the game for you. By the way, don't worry if all this sounds a bit like Dallas, it isn't a dream, it just plays like one.
The phone rings, and as you climb from your comfy chair to answer it passing the open log fire being careful not to trip over the computer terminal leads, you answer it to find that your oil field is burning and you stand to lose over two million dollars. Ever fancied playing J.R.? Well reLINE are giving you the chance to manage your own oil company in their latest greasy release Oil Imperium.
Being an oil baron isn't all it is cracked up to be in this fast-moving role playing game. Buying oil fields, selling refineries, or destroying your opponents company are but a few of the options open to you within this first class attempt at imitating the life of an oil tycoon. This one is worth a look as long as you don't take losing millions of dollars too personally. Highly recommended.
Want to be rich? Want to be an oil tycoon? Then download Oil Imperium and be one! The game has a great idea but was not so perfectly realized. You'll have to buy oil fields, drill, buy tanks, sell oil, sabotage opponents...
Funny thing about this Amiga version is the mixture of German and English language in it! Some parts are in German while others are English!
Old, quite simple strategy game. You should sit in your office and control the whole Oil company. Your mission is to grow up to an Oil Imperium of the world.
Oil Imperium is one of the best business games I have played ever. Not only does the game feature great business management, but it also includes action sequences like when you try to find the best way to the oil fastest or when you have to search for oil. This can be done automatically as it's quite hard to succeed in this unless you are experienced with the game.
The game offers very exciting gameplay with many different options. You can even do sabotage on your competitors oil fields and other similar things. The game also offer multiplayer game which makes this game even more fun.
