Oil Imperium for the 92
Posted by Michael on 16 July 2004, 02:51 GMT

[Oil Imperium]Recently an interesting 92 BASIC game was added to our archives. The catch? It's written only in German. Oil Imperium is a remake of of the 1989 PC game of the same name. As an oil manager you must buy fields and extract oil in three price regions. Random events such as fires and sabotage add to the excitement. For those of you who can read German, the game's website explains how to play. Viel spaƟ!

Update: PC game link changed to a better site.

I loved this game on the PC. I actually had in on my old 386 with WIN 3.1. I wasn't very good, but it was so fun. I'd try it if I had a 92.

Unfortunately, It'll probably come out something like this.

"You have been made one field-driller oil-like. Depress ze Enter-key for the taking of one's next turn."

Seeing as how it's a BASIC game, I'd have to say yes, the source is indeed posted.

No, he has... he probably just didn't read the article very carefully and assumed that it was ASM (since most featured programs are ASM anyway). That's all.
