Well done! I enjoy it and it is addictive. :)

Some annoying flickering when I unroll the pipe horizontally. I run the game under the ZXSP Emulator.

I was thinking about trying to write an "Anteater" game, but I'm glad that you did it first. All those little details - the oil company idea, the "panic pipe retreat", the rotating hose drum, the moving clouds - make it a very enjoyable game!

And it's very addictive, because the bottom cave is so hard to reach, and there is so much oil down there! :D

Great stuff very much harder than i thought it would be, also very slick animation definitely gets you a little excited. the sounds effects are great and for me really improve the whole game experience.

thanks for taking the time to do this....

Regards Andy

p.s. is oil a dream of the magnificent Sir Morris BIGG :lol:

I must control myself and play less often. I got stuff to do.

Very good game.
