Gameplay

The scene takes place in a gas station, as an oil leak from a pipe on the third floor is causing confusion.

Move Station Helper left and right to catch the leaks in his bucket.

Helper's bucket holds three drops. Move Helper out to veranda to pour the oil into the Boss's oil drum on the second floor.

Be careful not to drop oil on the waiting customers.

The upper screen is a zoom-up of the third floor of the gas station where Helper is. All three floors of the gas station appear on lower screen.
