Westworld Mobile is available on Android a day early

On the 18th, the official Westworld Twitter account announced that the release for the Westworld Mobile game would take place on the 21st of June. A bunch of sites instantly jumped on this, but I refrained as it's painfully obvious very few publishers can actually hit their target date. In my experience the vast majority of mobile games tend to release a day or two early. In this particular case it would appear my insight paid off. Westworld Mobile is available right now on the Google Play Store, an entire day early.

Kalypso Media's skyscraper construction sim 'Project Highrise' is out on Android

People have been clamoring for ages for a proper SimTower successor. It would seem that skyscraper construction simulators are a very niche genre. Sure, we have a few mobile releases from Kairosoft and NimbleBit that may scratch that itch, but it's not like they can really compete on the same level. This is why so many fans of the genre were ecstatic when Kalypso Media's Project Highrise hit the scene. It was received very well when it originally released on PC back in 2016, and to my delight, it has been ported to Android and is officially available on the Google Play Store for $3.99.

Warner Bros. just opened up the beta for its 'Westworld' simulation game

A few months back Warner Bros. released a Westworld simulation game on the Play Store as a limited soft-launch testing release. Sadly it was region locked, which means anyone outside of the testing region was unable to play it. Well, that all changes today as Warner Bros. have just opened up their beta to the majority of Android users. Yep, that's right, there is a Westworld game available on the Play Store, and you can install it right now.

After almost a year in testing, EA has officially released 'The Sims Mobile' on Android

That's right, after almost a year of The Sims Mobile existing as a soft launch testing release, Electronic Arts has finally seen fit to open the floodgates and officially push this title out to the rest of the world. But before you get too excited, it is sadly just like every other The Sims mobile game on our platform. This means you can expect plenty of wait timers and in-app purchases that range up to $99.99 per item.

[Hands-on] My Tamagotchi Forever, everything you love about the original digital pet toy mixed with too many free-to-play mechanics

Bandai Namco's upcoming My Tamagotchi Forever game for Android currently exists as a soft-launch title on the Google Play Store that is only available to those that live in Canada. The marketing behind this game seems to point towards a 20-year revival of the famous handheld digital pet game for modern times. But has Bandai Namco succeeded in making a proper reimagining of the franchise, or is this more of the same free-to-play junk we are all used to seeing?

[Hands-on] The Sims Mobile, an exasperating lesson in patience

The Sims Mobile just recently soft launched in Brazil. Having written a release announcement the other day, I wanted to circle back and explore the gameplay in order to get a better sense of what this title offers. Do we finally get the Sims us mobile gamers have always wanted, or does EA do the expected thing by pushing out another substandard product? If you couldn't tell from the title, yeah, this is one of the worst games I have ever played.

Following RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, Atari launches RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch

They say "a picture is worth a thousand words" and today that could not be more astute. Atari has just released their latest cash-in of the RollerCoaster franchise, and yeah, I feel just as unhappy about it as the little sim pictured above. This is absolutely nothing like last year's solid release of RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, as it looks to be closer to (or almost exactly the same) as RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile.
