In the lead up to Fallout 4 releasing on November the 10th, 2015, Bethesda has created the mobile app Fallout Shelter.

Fallout Shelter gives its users the power to become an overseer to their very own vault.  It’s your job as overseer to watch over the vault and make sure things run smoothly.

The dwellers of the vault are assigned to different rooms in order to work and help maintain supplies. (This is where you also get some of your caps as well as leveling your dwellers).

Each citizen has a name and S.P.E.C.I.A.L traits that are slightly altered across all dwellers. This helps determine where they would fit best e.g. in the living quarters, the power generator, the diner, the water treatment or the med bay etc.

Fallout Shelter effortlessly balances 2D and 3D graphics by combining the two instead of abruptly switching between both as most mobile games do. This makes for a fun and interesting perspective as an overseer of the vault. With easy access controls and simplified pop up tutorials, Fallout Shelter is a fun game for older children 12+ and above even though Fallout 4 has a rating of R18.

In the beginning, the vault was rather difficult to maintain, something you don’t think mobile games should be at least for the first couple of Levels.

Yes, perhaps it made it more realistic but it tended to become frustrating in terms of leveling, maintenance and getting any caps. Your dwellers become depressed even though you’re doing everything you can possibly do.

Things can go from very good to very bad in an instance e.g. in a raider attack or running low on supplies.

On the plus side, if you do somehow manage to scrap through, things can pick up again. It just depends if you’ve got the willpower to grit your teeth in the meantime.
