Gameplay

Assign dwellers to their rooms!

If you haven’t played any of the Fallout games, where have you been? We’re just joking (kinda) but if you want to delve into the world, then this might just be a good starting point for you! This game puts you in control of an underground vault from Vault-Tec. Your job is to build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the wasteland.

I love the game and especially love how you can spy on your dwellers to see what they’re saying (a cute detail). Unfortunately, this took a lot to get used to as I kept accidentally setting fire to the rooms but after some practice, it’s a lot of fun. Of course, the more you play, the harder it gets to control!

Graphics

The graphics are great!

Of course, Vault Boy makes an appearance, I can’t believe you’d ever wonder that! As for the graphics in general, they’re great with a lot of attention to detail. As I said above, you can zoom in to see certain rooms and there’s a lot to look at. I’m really happy with the visuals!

Music & Sounds

The audio will straight away tell you that you’re playing a Fallout game, even if it is on mobile! I love the old-fashioned sounds and eeriness of the game through the audio.

Controls

Tap and drag to control!

The controls consist of a lot of tapping, and of course, dragging your dwellers into their assigned rooms!

The Verdict

What did you think?!

Fallout Shelter is definitely difficult to play at times, but a lot of fun that overrides it! Although this game is great, I do feel as if you need to make an in-app purchase in order to progress in the game which will turn some people off. However, if you’re happy to spend your real money, this might just be the game for you!
