Oil Panic

Oil Panic
System Game & Watch (Multi Screen)
Developer Nintendo
Genre Action

There's a leak at the oil station, and the station helper must catch the oil and pass it to his boss.

On the top screen, move the station helper left and right to catch the drops that are falling from the ceiling in the bucket. The bucket can only hold three drops before it overflows. Pass the oil down to the station boss on the bottom screen, but don't drench the customers by mistake.

You score 1 point for every oil drop you catch. When you pour the oil into the boss's barrel, you score 1 point for 1 drop, 2 points for 2 drops or 5 points for 3 drops. You have two miss counters, one for each screen.
