Oilman is a game about digging fossil fuels out of the ground. Mainly with a pickaxe. Of course, you should only do this in one game, unless you want everyone in the world to die. But Oilman is quite a compelling experience, albeit one with a few layers that you have to pull back if you want to get the most of it.
And that’s where this guide comes in. We played a good part of Oilman and discovered a number of different strategies that will help you get as much oil out of the ground as possible.
Whether you’ve just got your first pickaxe or you’ve already spent some time in the mines, here is something to help you out. So let’s do that – here are the best hints, tips, and cheats for Oilman.
You will want to pickaxe every stone you see, even after discovering the oil wells. The more stones you smash, the more gems you get. The more gems you get, the more money you can make. Clear every stone in the mines before moving on to the next island.
Search for secrets
Keep an eye out for secrets while mining. These can be chests, barrels, doors or ladders. Whatever they are, there’s usually a boost waiting for you, be it more cash or some special moves that can speed up your mining skills. You will find all the secrets if you follow the first suggestion.
Whenever you return to the top of the mine to drop off your oil and gems, head to the tool store and upgrade your storage capacity and pickaxe. The stronger your pickaxe, the faster you can chop through the rocks, and the more oil you can collect, the longer you can spend underground.
Use your teleport
When you’ve done all you can underground, make sure to use your teleport to zap back to the top of the mine. It saves you a lot of time and is free. Keep in mind where you have been in the mine and where to go next or you will spend a lot of time wandering around.
Make sure you have cash
Every time you enter the mine, make sure you have some cash in your account. If you don’t, you can’t add a faucet to an oil well and soak up the black gold. Backing down can be really frustrating, so make sure you don’t have to hold back enough money to start drilling right away.
