Early Sierra Online game, that was programmed by Thomas J Mitchell and Bill Sargent. Bill Sargent went on to work on such projects as The Sims, and SimCity 2000. Oil's Well is very similar to the 1982 arcade game Anteater.
The player attempts to manage an oil drilling operation and collect oil, while evading subterranean creatures. The player can advance through eight different levels, using four directional control buttons to move the drill head, and pressing a button to quickly retract it.
