Ahoy there lads and lassies! It’s me, your one and only app pirate bringing you my latest app treasure finds. Today I dove deep below Davey Jones’s locker to bring you an app that ye buckos would love. It’s called Fallout Shelter by Bethesda. Take control of your vault and ensure the happiness and safety of your dwellers. Learn more about it in this app review.

It Has Something Fresh to Offer

Fallout Shelter Review

Fallout Shelter is not your usual game, although there are still some features that you would find in other apps, making it still somewhat familiar and easy to learn. The setting and plot is different as the main area is in a vault that’s situated 2,000 feet under the ground. You will have control of the vault and the people, which are called dwellers, that survived the blast that destroyed the surface where people once lived. This will be their new home now and it’s up to you how to grow it and make it successful. Like other apps, there are also items to unlock that can help you in building the vault and make it a happy, safe and comfortable place for your dwellers. Like a real community of people, you’ll also be dealing with personal relationships between couples, who can produce babies that would be a part of your vault.

Great Graphics

Fallout Shelter App

The graphics of this game was really made well. It has a cartoony feel but not too much that it doesn’t look like that it was a game made for younger ones. Think of the characters in “Archie Comics”. It’s what came to my mind when I first saw the characters in this game. The animation of every character is also impressive as every one in a scene is moving, instead of just sitting or standing there until you tap on them.

It’s Addictive

This game can get addictive since you would feel the need to create a nice vault for your dwellers and keep on improving it. You should also get to know each of your dwellers as they have different interests and personalities. This is needed so you can keep them happy, which is part of the game. There’s so much to explore, unlock and do that’s why it’s more likely that you would feel greatly immersed in the game.

The Ups

Aside from being free, this app has fantastic graphics that’s pleasing to the eyes. It’s also nice how there’s so much content to explore, which makes it a game that you could play for a long time.

The Downs

It could take time to unlock levels and various items without in-app purchase so it could be tempting to spend real cash, although it’s still possible to continue with the game without it. Dragging and dropping items may be difficult if you have a small screen.

The Verdict

Fallout Shelter is a breath of fresh air in the app world where everything seems to be just a copy of the other games, just with a slight change in the looks of the items or characters. It’s fun and addictive and it would keep you playing for a long time. While it has some drawbacks, it’s still generally a nice game to play so it’s recommended that you give it a try.
