Fallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter by Bethesda
Mobile Game

So, I’ve had the pleasure of playing the crap out of Fallout Shelter for my Samsung/Android. It’s been out long enough that I’ve beaten it and now am working on new content that they just put into the game. There is a really good reason for the new content, but I will get to that.

You are in control of a Shelter and the goal is to grow your shelter and protect your people. Simple right? Not really. I think I went through 10 different vaults before I didn’t kill all my people.

You have to worry about power to your rooms. After that, you need food and water for your people. They also like to be happy. So you create your rooms, put people in them (when they are in the ‘correct room,’ the cursors on the corners turns green) and hope they aren’t killed by raiders or deathclaws. BTW, Deathclaws come when you have more than 50 people.

You create training rooms to increase the S.P.E.C.I.A.L stats of your people (Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charm, Intelligence, Agility and Luck). You can also send people into the wasteland with items (the gun and armor you can equip and a max of 25 Stimpacks and Radaways). They will bring back armor, guns and caps. Be sure to keep checking on them to bring them back before they die out there.

Now that I’ve said all of that, let’s talk about what I think. I think it is a fairly awesome time kill that took me a bit to get started. However, I reached the ‘end’ fairly quickly once I got started. I have 200 people, which is the max. I have pretty good guns and armor doesn’t matter because I’ve been maxing out all of their stats. At this point, I’m trying to get all the collectables, which is difficult since I’ve maxed out my people.

I must admit I was surprised that they added Halloween decorations, which I loved, but I’m confused because they only did the diner and the living quarters, which seems a little half-hearted. Why not just do them all?

Now they have recently added a new mode: Survival. You start getting attacked immediately by larger groups and you can’t revive anyone that dies. I’ve started it and it is taking longer to build up than previous vaults. It is definitely interesting.

With all that said Fallout Shelter is a good game, a good time waster, but I really hope they do more with it. It’s awesome and short and a nice way to keep people interested in Fallout 4 coming out, but we will see if it holds up over time or fizzles out.
