"Fallout Shelter is simple to play and addictive as hell." - GameZone

Fallout Shelter puts you in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault from Vault-Tec. Build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland.

*** Fallout Shelter requires at least an iPhone 5, iPad 3, or iPad mini 2. ***

Create a brighter future…underground! Select from a variety of modern-day rooms to turn an excavation beneath 2,000 feet of bedrock into the very picture of Vault Life.

Get to know your Dwellers and lead them to happiness. Find their ideal jobs and watch them flourish. Provide them with outfits, weapons, and training to improve their abilities.

Turn worthless junk into useful items with Crafting! Customize the look of any dweller in the Barbershop.

A well-run Vault requires a variety of Dwellers with a mix of skills. Build a Radio Room to attract new Dwellers. Or, take an active role in their personal lives; play matchmaker and watch the sparks fly!

Send Dwellers above ground to explore the blasted surface left behind and seek adventure, handy survival loot, or unspeakable death. Find new armor and weapons, gain experience, and earn Caps. But don’t let them die!

From time to time, idyllic Vault life may be disrupted by the dangers of post-nuclear life. Prepare your Dwellers to protect against threats from the outside…and within.

Vault-Tec has provided the tools, but the rest is up to you. What are you waiting for? Get started building your Vault today for FREE.

Best relaxing/simulation builder game on iOS

I want to be clear I have not played fallout ever even though I have a ps3 but fallout shelter inspires me to finally play fallout 3 and enter its universe of pip boy ! . I have really enjoyed this game in lockdown being inside vaultec. I have found this game very addict and also surprisingly relaxing to hear every room and atmosphere deep underground in the vault . You can also carry our squad missions with weapons . Defend your vault and upgrade and improve . It’s cute to see procreation and love happening among couples in the vault . Great work Bethesda ! I hope you will make a fallout shelter 2 with improved story and vault rooms . Thank you for making this game free of charge in first place

I need more guns

Your game is amazing with great graphics and sounds but after every two days my vault is raided and I don’t have enough powerful guns to stop them at the vault door and ultimately my resources are really down and the lunch box only give me nuka-a-cola and now I have eight of them but not even eight weapons please fix this issue

Time Glitch

This game is my favourite game all time but I have only one problem that this game have time glitch. When I go to settings and change date or hours then Automatically my game process is changed. I changed 1 day next then my game process is going to next day time. Somebody uses this glitch and complete all game in hours. Please fix this glitch and this is main and once problem with game. I think then nobody download this game more because they completed this game or infinite lunchbox and caps. I will give this game to 5 star when this glitch fix. 🤔👎😭😭😭
