Find refuge in life underground
Fallout has produced many games, and here to join those titles is a mobile resource manager. You have the change to choose and build your own vault, organizing it to your standards of efficiency.
Beyond the vault
Will you hide deep within your vault and accept defeat from incoming raiders, or fight back?
While not all Fallout games have caught on well, this mobile application has been quite the hit. It’s a citizen and resource manager where you place and build rooms that require workers with the right skillsets. Having the most suitable workers will ensure that production efficiency is maintained at a high standard.
The graphics are a sight to see, as the game takes on a cartoonish and paper-like appearance. This makes watching the dark underground of your vault easier and managing the citizens, a blast. There are many outfits and weapons to provide to citizens, to contrast the overarching cloud of pessimism from the nuclear wasteland.
Overall, the game is entertaining. If you get bored of the vault, you can send your citizens into the wasteland in hopes of finding gear and pets. The wasteland holds many risks and many rewards. This is one reason the game is rather engaging.
However, the genre is immensely overdone, and if you’ve played similar games, you may not enjoy Fallout Shelter as much as others. There’s also the major waits on timers whenever you send citizens out into the wasteland. You can stare at your screen for hours simply collecting resources every few minutes. Further, for those who want to play the game on small screens, you'll find that the experience is just not as simple as on PC.
Where can you run this program?
Fallout Shelter is available for IOS and Android devices, as well as computers running Windows 7 to 10.
Is there a better alternative?
No. The application has great gameplay with high risk and reward that’ll keep you coming back. There are alternatives if you aren’t a fallout fan, such as This War of Mine, another shelter manager.
Fallout Shelter is a great game that transports you into a future attempting to recover from a nuclear apocalypse; you’ll be playing it for ages.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you love challenges and a chance to be the manager of a vault from the hit game series, this is the right pick.
