Feed Me Oil 2 iPhone, thumbnail 1
Feed Me Oil 2 is the sort of game you play without really noticing. It's a clever little physics-puzzler that sees you redirecting a flow of gloopy oil into the mouths of various oddly proportioned beasts, complete with a decent chunk of levels and a three star rating system.

It makes for an absorbing experience while you're hunched over your iPad, and a couple of hours might drift past while you're placing fans, squirters, and girders to make sure the oil gets to its destination.

It's not a particularly challenging experience, and nor is it very mentally taxing, but it's a well put together, enjoyable game nonetheless.

Slick

Each of the 60 levels is a single screen, with an outlet valve where the oil dribbles out and a lined off section where you need to deposit the Texas gold. You're given a set number of different tools to place before you set the oil flowing.

IAPs explained
You can buy packs of hints and solutions to use if you get stuck.

Hints place one piece in place to give you a head start. 10 will set you back 69p / 99c, 50 £1.99 / $2.99, and 100 £2.99 / $4.99.

Solutions get you all three stars in a level and cost 69p / 99c for one, £1.99 / $2.99 for five, or £2.99 / $4.99 for 10.
Popping these down is a case of tapping and dragging. Tap again and you can twist the direction the new tool is facing in. Tap on the valve and the oil will start running, and you'll see whether your network of new parts is good enough to guide the black liquid to the desired location.

You get the first star in the rating system for feeding the creature enough oil. The other two are reserved for pieces of equipment you haven't used. It's simple enough finishing the levels with the tools provided, but figuring out which two you don't need is a little trickier.

Those stars unlock the next section of the game, too, so you might occasionally find yourself heading back to earlier levels to earn some more before you can progress.

Oiled up

That's unlikely, though, because while Feed Me Oil 2 is entertaining, it rarely has you scratching your head.

The puzzles are firmly on the casual side of the divide, but solving them is so smooth, and watching the oil bubble and squelch to its destination so pleasant, that you won't mind too much.

This is a warm, enjoyable little game that doesn't stick in the mind for long, but will keep you smiling while you're playing it.

A solid and enjoyable game, Feed Me Oil 2 is fun while it lasts, albeit not that tough
