The game is simple. There's a twisted pipeline and oil starts flowing through it into a barrel. The barrel needs to be filled up and you're the guy who's trying to ensure that nothing goes wrong.
There are small characters (turtles and miniature men) climbing the ladder on the right side of the screen. If they climb up to the top they will drop down a clamp that will block the flow of the oil, or they'll jump on the pipeline themselves.
You need to shoot them before they get you. If a clamp falls on you or if you are touched by one of the creatures (there's also a really mean crab after you - sort of a level boss) you die. If they get your helper - you'll just need to pick up a new one.
If a part of a line is clogged up, you need to guide your helper there to fix it. The level is fixed once the barrel at the bottom of the screen is full.
Sounds simple? Well try it and you'll change your mind. Every next level gets harder, so good luck!
