Exxon - The decontaminator

You are on a mission, decontaminate that oil! Instructions are in game. The name Exxon comes from a oils spill disaster in the USA.

Download in following flavours:

Flash 0.2MB – Requires Flash 9 installed
Windows Executable 1.5MB
Macintosh Executable 3.9MB

Running the game in a browser is possible, but cripples the framerate. I recommend running the executables or running the swf in flash player 9 not in a browser.

Exxon - The decontaminator


There are two modes: Level mode and Free mode. Click: “Click to play” for level mode. And 600,1200 or 2400 for Free mode, where the numbers are how many oil spills there are. Note, if you by any chance run the game in the browser, the Level mode might not work and falls back to Free mode 600. If you see a lot of (N)’s around, you are in free mode. Go back (Esc) and click “Click to play” again for Level mode. (Xml loading issue)

Edit2: Those on Vista could not run the game in level mode. It turns out that running it in a browser worked.
Same as the exe but online, will hurt perfomance though… keep the window small for better fps.

Island in the strea… breakfast, day 2

Ahhh that coffee was great!

Islands are temporary up, No collision responses yet and uglyishly(I made up that word just now), randomly placed. I made all islands fit a circle, to simplify the collisions a lot, fits the theme as well. I’m gonna put the islands in a separate sector manager. Next is collisions and neatly placed islands.

To be decontaminated

Closing the gap!


Ta da! The oil is gone! It’s magic!

Want to test download the exe (windows) or run the swf, although the swf is slower. Arrow keys to drive, space to deploy buoys.

That’s all for day one. I’m going to bed. (00:13)

Hotdog with buoy action!

Bouy frenzy

Crazy buoys flying all over the place. I got them under control now though. Next step is to close the buoy divider and get points for decontaminated oil spills.

Strange bread

Hotdogs! Yeah, I forgot to buy the bread. Toast it is. Works.

Oil spill

Great, I had a tough bug haunting me for some time. When it finally was fixed I got the game up to speed. I can have 2000 oil spills at good framerate in flash on my laptop 2ghz centrino. Thanks to some dynamic sectoring.

Next up is to wrap the oil spills by dividers that will be dragged by the boat. And then some islands.

Exxon - The decontaminator - Title Screen

A sketch of the title screen.

This will be a 2d topdown boat game in flash. Isolate oil spills with dividers. All graphics and sound are kept minimalistic and simple. If stuff goes quick and I have a playable semicomplete game today I will try make it multiplayer.

The name Exxon comes from a oils spill disaster in the USA.
