The Westworld game for mobile devices is supposed to launch officially on June 21st, but it can be downloaded, installed, and played already in some markets. This title is similar to Fallout Shelter and involves many characters and locations that are familiar for the fans of the Westworld TV series.

This Sunday, the second season of the popular Westworld TV series will come to an end. Obviously, this means that the fans of this excellent show have a painfully long waiting period lying ahead. Fortunately, it has been already confirmed that HBO will shoot at least one more season. To make the wait less painful, a mobile game is set to launch on June 21 via both Google Play and the Apple AppStore, but it looks like the title can be already enjoyed in some markets.

Westworld for Android/iOS is a simulation that has been developed by Behaviour Interactive and published by Warner Bros., looking a lot like Fallout Shelter. The player acts as a Delos trainee in charge of a virtual Westworld that includes many locations, hosts, and guests from the TV series with the same name.

Just as in Fallout Shelter, the main goal is to develop and maintain the park while keeping its guests happy. To do this, one needs to match up the right hosts with the guest and constantly improve the hosts with upgrades and "reveries" that improve their behavior and makes them look more human. 

The Android version of Westworld has been downloaded by over 100,000 times already and holds a Google Play rating of 4.3 out of 5 after only 443 user reviews. According to VentureBeat, the game will launch on iOS on June 21 as well, although it has been available as a beta title for both platforms for a while. The in-app purchases available for the iOS and Android variants of the game range between US$6 and US$140, but these limits might depend on the market.

I installed the game and played for a few minutes, as you can see in the screenshots below. All I can say for now is that the game looks good, but it also feels like a potentially major time sink or a money sink. In the worst case scenario, it might become both. Anyway, if you're a Westworld fan, it is worth a try, as long as you avoid becoming addicted.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
