If you have ever, for whatever reason, wondered what it’d be like to work at Walmart – well, now’s your chance.

The retail giant has released a game for your smartphone that lets you live a day in the life of a Walmart manager. Over the course of your workday, you monitor inventory, stock shelves, adjust prices, and perform tasks to the satisfaction of your boss and customers alike.

The app, which Buzzfeed News first spotted, started out as a training tool for employees, Walmart spokesperson Michelle Malashock told Business Insider. The game, which is called Spark City, was piloted in a dozen Walmart stores over the summer before it was made public in Apple and Android app stores at the start of October. As of Oct. 16, the free app had around 60,000 downloads, Malashock says.

If you’ve ever played a Diner Dash-type simulation game (Sally’s Spa, Cake Mania, Jane’s Hotel to name a few), Walmart’s Spark City works pretty similarly. I played through a (virtual) week of the game, which took about an hour.
