Feed Me Oil (2011), video game review.

The Apple App Store is filled with physics based puzzle games. Angry Birds and Cut the Rope two of the more prominent ones, but there are others–some of which are just as good if not better. Enigmo was one of the earlier physics puzzlers, and much of Feed Me Oil draws from the earlier game. But it also has some things in common with another game that was only recently put up onto the App Store, World of Goo.
As with the other two games, the goal in Feed Me Oil is to guide fluids from a pipe to an end location. In both Feed Me Oil and Enigmo you have access to an innovatory of objects that you place to help guide the fluid–oil in Feed Me Oil, and water in Enigmo.
