VR Event Booth Games: Job Simulator Review

A mischief sandbox game of the human (player) “simulating” what jobs were in the early years before “computers and AI” took over all their jobs in the year 2050. While following instructions given by the Job Bot, the human can have fun tossing stuff at his boss, drinking slurpees, putting his head onto a photocopy machine or dispensing coffee into a flower pot.

GAMEPLAY (8 / 10)

With Job Simulator being a Sandbox and mischief game, the player has the opportunity to perform job task as a office worker, chef, cashier, or a car mechanic. The game has silly realistic mechanics to make the player feel like they are in a simulator, even despite its unrealistic nature. The player may do things like launching stapler bullets at his/her colleague bots, messing up a bot’s car or throwing stuff at his CEO bot. Job simulator tickles kid’s humour so well in a way that adults probably cannot understand probably because they have never done a real job before.

AVG. PLAYTIME (7 / 10)

The average playtime is about 25-30 mins if the player wishes to do a full job stage, which isn’t bad. A freeplay and Infinite Overtime mode is available for anyone who wants to job as long as they can. For events, it can be shorten to just one task which is about 3 minutes. 

PLAY AREA (9 / 10)

Job Simulator requires a room scale space of 2m x 1.5m, which is reasonable considering you will most likely be tossing/throwing stuff in your simulated jobs. A bigger play area is also welcome and the game will synchronize to the size of your play area (e.g. bigger table). One good feature is that there is a shorter human mode that scales down the environment to fit kids height making it easier for them to play the game.

GRAPHICS (8 / 10)

The graphics for Job Simulator is pretty good and cute for a mischievous, casual game in VR. Even despite its simplicity, the graphics work is well done.

WRAP UP/VERDICT

Although a casual game, Job Simulator is uniquely great for its simplicity, smart dialogue and concept. This allowed it to be one of the most popular and most played VR games to date, due to its quick establishment on popular YouTube Gamers. This game is great for anyone who wishes to use it for arcades or events due to its establishment and its popularity among kids.
