The idea for "Oil Spill Escape" came to me as a result of all the news about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico these past few months.

You play as a fish trying to escape a giant ploom of oil headed your way. You also must avoid any obstacles in your way and must keep up your energy by chowing down on some of the smaller fish.

If you hit into a rock or run out of speed, the game ends and you have an opportunity to submit your score.

How long can you last?

Dang oil spill!

I can always count on Newgrounds to give us some satire or at least a game that features modern problems. I was impressed by how well it flowed. I was not even aware that I was not able to advance past the rocks as I kept thinking I could just go over them. I liked when I could just locate where the next space between the rocks was there and sort of "walk" along that part. The music is pleasant and seems to be unfitting. It looks as though by now they have finally put that cap on it, too.
