A fun little clone of classic Digger, Oil's Well is fast, fun, but somehow missing the longevity that makes Digger a classic. As MobyGames describes it, the objective is to: "...extend your oil-mining robotic arm deep below the earth's crust to mine oil and line your pockets. But watch out for the monstrous bugs that lie in wait for you -- one touch of them to the robotic arm and you lose a life!" Simple concept, but quite frustrating in reality as those bugs are way too fast at higher levels. The 1990 remake version is much better. Good for nostalgia, but little else.
