In november we’ll all have the pleasure to play Fallout 4, among others. Of all the games that’s coming our way it’s the one I look forward to the most. And in order to not keep us empty handed while we wait, Bethesda released “Fallout: Shelter” for IOS & Android.
The IOS version has been out for a couple of weeks now but the Android version dropped in the play store yesterday. As soon as I heard the news I started my download. The game is about 140mb and you’ll need a relatively new device to play it (I’ve heard some people complain that it wasn’t playable on their old device, this is due to low ram etc.)
In this little game you’re a vault overseer. You’ve been picked out to organize a vault and make sure that your dwellers survive. You do this by building rooms for their basic needs (Power, Food & Water) and making sure that if something happens, the danger gets handled.
I’ve already spent hours in this game and I have it for less than 24. That just goes to show how addictive it is.
I’m at my third vault already, I screwed the first one up by placing my rooms too far in between each other, the second one I screwed up by not having enough water facilities. As they say “Third time’s the charm” so hopefully this one will stay healthy for me to keep working with it.
Because it’s an app, the creators still want to make some money out of it. You have the option to buy lunch-boxes. They contain 4 cards that can contain items or dwellers that can help you progress in the game. But luckily you can also earn lunch boxes by completing objectives. For example by sending out one of your dwellers on a 7 hour wasteland roam.
If you like basebuilding, you might enjoy this, if you’re a fallout fan like me, you WILL enjoy this. Even if only for a little while.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a few Deathclaws to drive back.
Stay tuned o7
