Just Updated

We’ve got another update for you. Today we are adding 4 new languages to the game: Russian, Chinese (simplified), Polish and Brazilian-Portuguese.

About the GameTurmoil offers players a visually charming, tongue-in-cheek take on the simulation genre inspired by the 19th century oil rush in North America. Get a taste of the rush and rivalry of the time as you earn your way to become a successful oil entrepreneur. As you make money digging up and selling oil, the town will grow along with you.

Lease land at the town auction and search for oil. Build a rig, create an efficient pipe network and bring up the oil to store it in silos. Sell the oil at the best times to maximize profits. Then buy essential upgrades in town to cope with rock, gas and ice. Acquire more town shares than your competitors in a bid to become the new mayor.

  • A campaign where you build your rags-to-riches oil baron career and beat your rivals.
  • Dozens of upgrades and new tools to improve your oil mining operations.
  • Meet the town’s characters in the saloon and make shady business deals.
  • Play single game mode to get one of literally millions of procedurally generated levels and earn as much as you can in one year.
  • Steam Achievements, Badges, Trading Cards and Cloud Saving.
  • Lease land at the town auction and search for oil using a dowser, mole or scanner.
  • Maximize your profits by using natural gas to boost the oil price.
  • Outbid your competitors at the stock auction.

Turmoil reviews and comments

Product received for free Turmoil an Oil Simulator Violil or what? What do you do? So you are a Person who no Longer wants to Work and now you just want to make Money. How do you do that? With Oil, Of course. So we travel from Country to Country what we have to buy and take the Area apart there. Have the Options to sell our Oil or not, depending on the Price. Very simple and is very Fun Price Performance: For €10 you can buy this Spie. I find the Game has the way I have it in front of me now. A lot of Potential after more. If the Campaign was a little longer and the Appeal is still there, then that's even worth €20 to me. My Conclusion about this Game: It's a lot of Fun for Mega. Fall you want to watch the Game Live here is my first Video for the Game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA0gNMzhkE8

Turmoil. A simple Strategy Game with a high Addiction Factor. You spend a Year (about 10 Minutes) on a Piece of Land, have to extract oil and sell it to one of the two Customers. Purchase Prices fluctuate. Therefore, there are Oil Tanks to Store. Simple, right? Yes yes and yet there are Tricks and Events that give the Game enough Depth to be not just Simple, on the Contrary. Sometimes it's quite hard to do everything right. Questions that arise are:-Have I found all the Oil? -Why does no Oil buy at a decent Price? -why don't I have enough Money for a new Tank now? (Or a Combie from the latter two)-why is December now? -Why did I not buy the Update for the Transport Cars. -is already 2:45 In the morning, but a Round would still have to go?!? I bought it for the Wintersale, had no Idea about the Game. However, it would have been Worth the EUR 10. From me, therefore, a clear Buy recommendation. Greetings

Right nog The game runs pretty good, except for sometimes when you're Done with level, The Game crashes. And its so annoying when you've Done well for 20 minutes just for The app to crash.

The game is really fun, entertaining and nicely implemented - it does not always take 3d to be good. You can get through the levels relatively quickly, it could take a little longer, but you were well entertained. Thumbs up.

The game is great, with many different layers where you can apply strategy to optimize your play... but... The game must have some memory leak or something. After a few digs, the game will crash right when returning to the town, making you loose all the progress you just earned during your dig... frustrating. Fix this, and I have no complaints...

The game has an interesting principle, but quickly becomes too easy and repetitive. So, once the campaign is over, we do not really want to redo everything just to find a challenge that does not exist in the initial campaign. The version is the same on the computer, which is nice. No bug report. However, the automatic backup takes place once in town, so that everything else can not be saved, unless you finish the next mission and return to the city. In the absence of manual backup, it's annoying.
