August 13 was announced to be the release date of the Android version. I think that news went out around mid-July. I was so excited to have the game, but I was still in Switzerland at the time. If I wanted to be August 13 already that means I would be back in the Philippines. I was torn. LOL Anyway, Bethesda did release the game with no delay.
I had to scroll through the apps list even after specifically searching “Fallout Shelter.”
The first thing to do when you start a game is name your vault. A tutorial on the gameplay follows.
The game seems easy — Assign dwellers to the ‘right’ rooms, have enough to full resources, and keep the dwellers happy. The vault must be protected from raiders and weird insects, animals, and monsters. There are weapons and outfits from lunchboxes. Dwellers sent to the Wasteland can get loot too. Outfits boosts the stats of dwellers. This is a big help for production. The game will give you a good start. Several dwellers will be sent to your vault. Then you have to start a baby-making vault to have more dwellers and resources.
Well, that’s an option. I don’t think you can produce many resources if you have inadequate number of dwellers. Production is slower in an upgraded room with one dweller. More rooms are unlocked as dwellers increase. Dwellers can be renamed to your liking, but I prefer to keep the names of those with very good stats. Otherwise, those I can sacrifice to the Wasteland get
I’m near to uninstalling the game after creating FIVE VAULTS. The fourth and fifth vaults were made after clearing the phone’s data. The first three ended up to be some kind of trial — What would be a good strategy to keep my dwellers happy without quickly losing resources often? Since I ended up having too many spawns, resources quickly drained and it was difficult to rush production without incidence when their happiness level is
I recommend Fallout Shelter for those who are very patient and enjoy strategy simulation games. The game works even if you’re offline. There are in-app purchases, but you can survive the game without those. You can get rare and very cool stuff in lunchboxes. The game is 141MB big. Make sure to have enough space before you download it.
