is a business simulation in which your rich Texas uncle died and left you an inheritance which could be worth billions if you have what it takes to play the oil game. Your goal in the game Oil Tycoon! is to become a billionaire within 10 years or 120 game turns. The interface is easy to learn and the background sound effects are great, but the tedium of managing your money may prove boring for action-oriented gamers.
Recently, your rich Texas uncle passed away, leaving his start-up oil business in your hands. He left you one plot of land in Lampassas County with one oil well, one refinery, one storage unit, 1 million gallons of crude, and $1 million. Now you need to survey other plots, buy land and drill wells, make decisions on selling crude or refining, and occasionally import or export oil. You can borrow from the bank and watch graphs of various economic indicators.
