Mobile gamers around the world now have access to their very own Delos simulation thanks to the global launch of Warner Bros’ Westworld game. Based on the HBO series that’s currently wrapping up its second season, Westworld gives players control over their very own park (or a simulation of their own park) as they create new hosts, level them up, and satisfy the needs of the park’s guests.
The reality is that this is a time management game in the same vein as Fallout Shelter. The game revolves around assigning qualified hosts to the game’s guests and waiting for them to finish doing whatever task the guest has in mind. That means lots of timers. As hosts satisfy the park’s guests, players gain experience and currency that lets them level up, unlock new facilities, and upgrade the park and its hosts. Outside of choosing which hosts will interact with which guests, players can also conduct host interviews, fix any damage hosts, and craft new ones.
Beyond just timers, the game also relies on what amounts to gacha hero collection as players try to craft hosts using either premium currency or materials they have earned through gameplay. Better hosts are essentially to satisfying some of the park’s more demanding guests.
During the game’s soft launch Westworld has undergone a number of changes and improvements. That includes the nagging issue regarding the maximum number of hosts that a player can have (discussed in Android Sloth’s preview of Westworld) and some new content.
Westworld is free and contains in app purchases. Here is an excerpt from the game’s description and a trailer with more information:
