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.

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.

Editors’ Choice

Ever wondered what life’s really like in the Fallout games’ underground vaults? Experience all the challenges of running a post-apocalyptic community—from building gardens and power plants to playing matchmaker for your citizens. Eavesdropping on their goofy conversations never gets old, and an adorable art style à la Fallout’s Pip-Boy cartoons will make series fans swoon. It’s not all lighthearted hijinks, though: Whether at home or exploring the Wasteland, your people will face raiders and other dangers.

There is a slim chance any developer will see this but listen.. I’ve played this game for almost 5 years now I’ve re downloaded it quite a few too and I just started it back up not long ago and noticed almost no changes it’s almost sad how many people have got this game and played it and you guys have abandoned it. I grew up to who I am now playing this with so many friends and we would all share crazy ideas of what they would add next and let me tell you they were creative this game just has a special place in my heart and nothing could change it I would kill to become a developer and make some changes that’s how desperate I am but I fully understand you guys have other projects but just to like see some new weapons or outfits and references to other games would be sick! Some things I would add are the exploring feature have more unique encounters or new loot when exploring new dialogue anything like that would be killer, also maybe some like new rooms or just new weapons if that’s too much and when crafting guns maybe have it be more hands on rather than just pressing build and waiting I have no complaints for this game hands down my favorite mobile game ever worthy of 5 stars and probably in my top 3 of the best games I’ve ever played one including Fallout 4, anyways this is me signing off if the developers don’t see this maybe someone else will and decide they will leave a review too about it anyways keep working hard Bethesda 👍🏼

Best game ever

So this game you should make another one of it but like a more upgraded version of it like more realistic and you should make him the main guy actually able to walk around to see what’s going on and you should put it in first person. Mode and let the vault guy go out and explore but then it’s real list of legends realistic so that he can find more dyes to help him make his vault bigger and you should also make sure when he comes back. He should have to be able to let the man say go in and then go say I’m gonna go back you keep this place running again or just let him have the option to come back in and check on it and then go back and find more people to get his ball bigger, so yeah that’s what I think. I think it should be called staying down here for 50 years or fall out shelter for or one or two but yes I do love this series. You should keep it going and I’m gonna give you a five star so keep it going, it’s the best game ever so that’s all I think what you should do but please send her my request as a as a notice like what you should do so yes that’s all I think in the Bible that the mother is it the next song no show you show me that add this little smiley face thing has to say you’re people are getting a Saadi satyr happy and you know oh so bye have a good day please consider doing this again. Please consider all my things what I’m saying.
