Unigine Corp Brings Eye-Candy Oil Rush This February to Android

Posted January 24, 2013 by Paolo Nikko in News

For those of you who don’t know it yet, Unigine Corp is a company that specializes in actual 3D game development using their own Unigine 3D engine.  One of their first game that utilizes their homebrew engine is a naval RTS game called Oil Rush, and definitely one of the best in terms of graphics.


Originally planned for PC and Mac last year, the game will also be heading over to the Android platform. In Oil Rush, players are thrown where oil is the resource that you have to deal with.  Your main objective is to mine out oil as much as you can and by any means necessary. Along the way, players will have to deal with bombings, raids and other enemies as you try to defend your oil deposits from being overrun and taken over.

To help you out on your quest for oil, players can build naval vehicles and oil rigs. These vehicles vary and can be used to protect your oil rigs by fending off potential enemies that comes along your way. There are a total of 15 maps to play through with more tougher AI opponents to defend with. Battles are pretty  intense and fast-paced so you have to react decisively on your next move.

Graphics wise, the game is absolutely amazing, and judging by the screenshot alone you can actually see every bit of detail on the vehicles, atmosphere and explosions.  Unigine Corp have said they actually targeted the game on mobile devices. However, Unigine have set a deal with Qualcomm to make this game exclusive with Snapdragon S4 chipset but we have our doubts that Nvidia’s powerful Tegra 3 chipset can run this beast head-on.

For now, Oil Rush is set to be scheduled on a February release date.  We will let you know as soon as the game arrives in Google Play.
