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.

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 👍🏼

Needs alittle TLC

Don’t get me wrong, this is a great game but it’s pretty easy most of the time. As soon as you’ve unlocked all the rooms there’s not much else to do apart from finishing quests and getting recipes. I know the devs are busy on other projects but there’s so much potential for this game to be bigger. Such as adding in new rooms like a pet daycare to train pets and raise their stats, different types of production rooms that utilize some stats like Endurance and Charisma for producing crafting materials, maybe even a monitoring room where you can designate and create specific teams of dwellers. Adding new dialogue or even giving the overseer the ability to interact personally with dwellers to raise happiness. Adding more variety to incidents and attacks like radiation leaks or bloatfly infestations. Even giving fun seasonal events and limited time weapons/outfits. It’s a great game to begin with but not a whole lot of work has been keeping it up to date. Even if it means whole new sequel like Fallout settlement where you can build different houses and buildings would be amazing, y’all have a great thing going here. Don’t let time and lack of care reduce this game to just another app taking up space.
I have had a few problems with trying to move dwellers and the camera/movement wigs out making it difficult to swap them around, heck even adding to where we can search items and dwellers by name would be fantastic
